LIAM PAYNE BECOMES THIRD 1D MEMBER TO TOP BILLBOARD POP SONGS CHART: Liam Payne has become the third One Direction member to hit No. 1 on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart with a solo song. "Strip That Down," featuring Quavo, takes over the top spot from Niall Horan's "Slow Hands." Liam and Niall follow former member Zayn, who topped the chart for two weeks in May 2016 with "Pillowtalk." One Direction is now the first group to spin off three solo artists each with No. 1s on the Pop Songs chart. And with Liam succeeding Niall on the chart, it's also the first time two members of the same group have had back-to-back No. 1s on the chart. Harry Styles peaked at No. 12 on the Pop Songs chart with "Sign of the Time" and Louis Tomlinson reached No. 25 with "Back to You," featuring Bebe Rexha.
