In 2010 doet Niall Horan in Dublin auditie voor X Factor. En hoewel Cheryl Cole en Katy Perry twijfelen aan de kwaliteiten van Horan mag hij door naar de volgende ronde. Na het boootcamp wordt hij in een groepje gezet met Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson en Zayn Malik. Het vervolg kennen we inmiddels – One Direction.


In 2015 kondigt de groep een pauze aan, waarna iedereen zijn eigen weg gaat. Niall Horan tekent een platencontract bij Capitol Records waar eind september zijn eerste solo-single This Town verschijnt en uiteindelijk 25 weken in de Top 40 weet te verblijven. In mei 2017 wordt Slow Hands de tweede single van Horan die door Radio 538 wordt uitgeroepen tot Alarmschijf.
Op 20 oktober verschijnt het debuutalbum van Horan, Flicker. Daarvan worden Too Much To Ask, On The Loose en de titeltrack de singles.

In oktober 2019 keert Horan terug met de track Nice To Meet Ya.

Songtekst

Waking up to kiss you
And nobody's there
The smell of your perfume
Still stuck in the air
It's hard

Yesterday I thought I saw
Your shadow running 'round
It's funny how things never change
In this old town
So far
From the stars

And I want to tell you everything
The words I never got to say
The first time around
And I remember everything
From when we were the children
Playing in this fairground
Wish I was there with you now

Cause if the whole world was watching
I'd still dance with you
Drive highways and byways
To be there with you
Over and over
The only truth
Everything comes back to you

I saw that you moved on
With someone new
In the pub that we met
He's got his arms around you
It's so hard
So hard

And I want to tell you everything
The words I never got to say
The first time around
And I remember everything
From when we were the children
Playing in this fairground
Wish I was there with you now

Cause if the whole world was watching
I'd still dance with you
Drive highways and byways
To be there with you
Over and over
The only truth
Everything comes back to you

You still make me nervous
When you walk in the room
Them butterflies they come alive
When I'm next to you
Over and over
The only truth
Everything comes back to you

And I know that it's wrong
That I can't move on
But there's something 'bout you

Cause If the whole world was watching
I'd still dance with you
Drive highways and byways
To be there with you
Over and over
The only truth
Everything comes back to you

You still make me nervous
When you walk in the room
Them butterflies they come alive
When I'm next to you
Over and over
The only truth
Everything comes back to you

Everything comes back to you
