It's safe to say Zayn Malik aka ZAYN's debut solo single 'PILLOWTALK' has been moderately successful worldwide. Not only did it debut at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in February and manage almost 400 million views and counting, but now it's managed something no One Direction song ever did during his time in the band.

Yup - 'PILLOWTALK' just hit numero uno on the Billboard Pop Songs radio airplay chart; a feat he never achieved during his 1D days. And yeah, we're just as surprised as you that 'What Makes You Beautiful' and 'Story of My Life' never did it.

On the latest airplay cart (dated May 7th, if that means anything) 'PILLOWTALK' is sitting pretty in the top spot. Back in the day 'What Makes You Beautiful' peaked at number 3 on the chart, with 1D's post-Zayn tunes 'Drag Me Down' and 'Perfect' managing numbers 6 and 10 respectively.

CONGRATS BABES, ZLAY etc.
