One Direction members Niall Horan and Harry Styles both earn their second solo Hot 100 entries this week.

Horan enters the chart at #90 with “Slow Hands,” his second official radio single. Styles starts at #93 with “Sweet Creature,” an instant gratification track from his forthcoming, self-titled studio album.

Neither song was available for the full Hot 100 tracking week. “Slow Hands” debuted on the final day of the streaming and sales tracking periods and fourth day of the official radio tracking week.

“Sweet Creature” premiered on the fifth day of the sales and streaming tracking weeks. It was available for 5.5 days of the radio tracking period, but that fact is basically irrelevant given that “Sweet Creature” is not a radio single.

“Slow Hands” is the follow-up to Horan’s debut solo single “This Town,” which peaked at #20 on the Hot 100.

Styles made his first solo Hot 100 appearance with debut radio single “Sign Of The Times.” It debuted at #4 last month and is #28 on this week’s chart.
