Niall Horan’s “This Town” Heading Top 10 At Hot AC Radio

While Niall Horan’s “This Town” is falling at pop radio, it is still on the rise at hot adult contemporary.

This week, it will move into the Top 10.

“This Town” received 2,158 spins during the first four days of the February 5-11 tracking period. Up 12.2% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “This Town” at #9 on Mediabase’s building chart.

Facing no obvious threat from below, “This Town” should retain its Top 10 position through the close of tracking.

“This Town” is Horan’s first solo single. As part of One Direction, he reached Hot AC radio’s Top 10 with “Story Of My Life” and “What Makes You Beautiful.”
