Zayn Malik has admitted he’s a big fan of Niall Horan’s music.

After the popular boy band announced their hiatus later that year, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall followed in Zayn’s footsteps, all going solo.

Speaking on SiriusXM, new dad Zayn said: “I’ll tell you what, Niall is my favourite. How about that?  Niall makes the best music, there you go.”

“Yeah, I will say that he makes better music than me. Yeah, I’m a Niall fan,” he added.

During their time together, One Direction released five albums, went on four world tours, and starred in their own movie.

One year after quitting the band, Zayn released his first solo single Pillowtalk, which became a worldwide smash – making Zayn the first British male artist to debut at number one in both the UK and US.

His debut album Mind Of Mine featured special appearances by Taylor Swift in ‘I Don’t Wanna Live Forever’ and Sia in ‘Dusk Till Dawn’.

After their hiatus, Harry released his self-titled debut album in 2017, which topped the charts internationally.

His second solo album, Fine Line, was released in December 2019, and became his second consecutive number-one album in the US.

In 2016, Westmeath native Niall dropped his first single This Town – which climbed the charts peaking at number 9 in the UK Singles Chart.

Following This Town, Niall released his debut album Flicker in 2017, which reached number one in both Ireland and the US.

Following his former bandmate Harry’s GRAMMY win, Liam shared a sweet message of support, writing: “Congrats @hshq on your Grammy win. What a huge moment, proud to be your brother.”


Louis released his debut single Just Hold On in December 2016, just days after his mother Johannah died following a battle with leukemia.

Louis also acted as a judge on The X Factor in 2018.
