July 2, 2017 - one direction
Payne joins (former 1D member) Zayn, Niall Horan and Harry Styles in earning during slightest one solo tip 40 strike on a Hot 100. (The group’s other member, Louis Tomlinson, appearance during No. 52 on a Hot 100 with “Just Hold On,” with Steve Aoki, in December.)
Zayn initial achieved a attainment in Feb 2016 when “Pillowtalk” debuted during No. 1. Horan followed with “This Town,” that reached No. 20 in October, and Styles assimilated a bar in April, when “Sign of a Times” arrived during a No. 4 peak.
When “Strip” debuted, we combed by any rope that has seemed on a Hot 100 (dating to a chart’s Aug. 4, 1958 inception) to find other acts with during slightest 5 members to draft solo anywhere on a chart. Our formula found that Wu-Tang Clan boasts a many organisation members with solo Hot 100 entries: a lofty eight. (Note that this investigate doesn’t embody “supergroups,” like Traveling Wilburys, or one-time all-star acts, such as USA for Africa.)
Where does 1D mount among acts with during slightest 4 members reaching a tip 40 on their own?
The Eagles explain a record for a many organisation members with solo tip 40 Hot 100 hits: five. In sequence of their initial charted solo hits, Joe Walsh, Randy Meisner, Don Henley, Glenn Frey and Timothy B. Schmit have all strike a tip 40 detached from a group. The band’s former guitarist Don Felder scarcely done it six, as his sole solo Hot 100 strike reached No. 43.
One Direction is now in a chosen association of The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac and U2, all with 4 members with particular tip 40 hits on a Hot 100. The Beatles’ John Lennon, Ringo Starr, George Harrison and Paul McCartney finished a attainment first. Fleetwood Mac assimilated a Fab Four’s ranks, interjection to Bob Welch, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie, followed by U2’s Adam Clayton, Larry Mullen (via a common “Theme From Mission: Impossible,” credited to any artist), Bono and The Edge.
(Of Wu-Tang Clan’s 8 members with solo Hot 100 hits, usually Method Man, Raekwon and Ol’ Dirty Bastard have burst a tip 40.)
1D’s attainment is generally considerable deliberation a members’ ages — nothing is comparison than 25 — and a speed during that 4 of them have all strike a Hot 100’s tip 40 individually: a camber of some-more than only 16 months. That’s even faster than The Beatles, all of whom achieved their initial solo tip 40 Hot 100 singles, in 1969-71, over 21 months.
