Niall Horan’s “Nice To Meet Ya” was formally issued to mainstream US radio at 9PM PT Thursday night, and a few west coast stations provided immediate airplay.

According to Mediabase, San Francisco’s WiLD 94.9, Seattle’s 106.1 KISS, Tucson’s 93.7 KRQ and San Diego’s Channel 93.3 each played the song 3 times Thursday night.

Those stations — and many more across the entire US — are expected to provide heavy support throughout Friday. Numerous stations are set to provide hourly airplay for the duration of release day.

“Nice To Meet Ya” jumpstarts a new album era for Horan, whose debut solo album “Flicker” reached platinum in the United States. Said album yielded multiple successful singles, including the #1 pop radio hit “Slow Hands.”
