Congrats to Liam! Strip That Down has hit the Billboard Hot 100′s Top 10 +

Closing out the Hot 100’s top 10, Liam Payne achieves his first solo top 10, as “Strip That Down,” featuring Quavo, climbs 11-10. The song (which Payne co-wrote with Sheeran, among others) also becomes Payne’s first solo top 10 on Radio Songs (13-10; 77 million, up 9 percent), while sliding 3-6 on Digital Songs (44,000, down 4 percent) and 29-35 on Streaming Songs (13.7 million, down less than 1 percent week-over-week).

Payne is the third member of One Direction (which has tallied six Hot 100 top 10s) to notch a solo top 10 on the Hot 100, following two by (former member) Zayn and one by Harry Styles, whose “Sign of the Times” debuted and peaked at No. 4 in April. 1D, thus, joins the likes of The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac and New Edition with at least three members with solo Hot 100 top 10s.
