1D could soon boast a third Pop Songs-topping member: Below Horan, Liam Payne rises 3-2 -- hitting a new peak -- with "Strip That Down," featuring Quavo. (The other two members of the group have yet to lead Pop Songs or (reach the top 10): Harry Styles reached a No. 12 high with "Sign of the Times" in April and Louis Tomlinson peaked at No. 25 two weeks ago with "Back to You," featuring Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals.)
Notably, One Direction has not hit No. 1 on Pop Songs; its debut entry, "What Makes You Beautiful," represents its peak, having climbed to No. 3 in 2012.
Only one other group features two soloists each with Pop Songs No. 1s: Destiny's Child, whose Beyonce has earned six solo leaders, and Kelly Rowland, with one (as featured on Nelly's "Dilemma" in 2002). As a group, Destiny's Child collected two Pop Songs No. 1s, both in 2000: "Jumpin', Jumpin' " (for four weeks) and "Independent Women Part 1" (seven weeks, into 2001).
Horan's "Hands" dethrones Charlie Puth's "Attention" after four weeks atop Pop Songs. Still, "Attention" becomes Puth's second No. 1 on the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart (where it lifts 2-1 on the Oct. 7 chart), following "One Call Away," which led for two weeks in 2016.
On the all-genre airplay, streaming and sales-based Billboard Hot 100, "Hands" has hit a No. 11 peak to date. Check back later today for highlights of the new, Oct. 7-dated Hot 100's top 10. All charts will update tomorrow (Sept. 26) on Billboard.com.
