Ranking Niall Horan’s Songs from ‘Heartbreak Weather’!

On January 26th, Niall Horan announced his newest single “Heaven” will be released on February 17th. Since then, fans were quick to react on social media. As we say hello to Niall’s new music era, we say goodbye to his Heartbreak Weather era by ranking the songs from his latest album.

The One Direction alum, Niall Horan’s album Heartbreak Weather was released on March 13th, 2020, the day the world shut down due to COVID. Since then he has had to cancel his ‘Nice To Meet Ya’ tour, which fans were highly anticipating. This was Horan’s second solo album and due to it dropping during a time of uncertainty, it didn’t get recognized as the treasure it is.

The album wasn’t given a tour but on November 7th, 2020, Niall and his band performed a set at Royal Albert Hall. This performance was live streamed globally, and profits from the show were given to benefit his touring crew. He said “… I want to highlight the incredible people who work in touring that make those events possible and whole livelihoods have been sincerely affected.” Such a king.

In a couple of months, the album will be 3 years old, but since then, Niall has announced new music with TikToks. What a cheeky boy.
