Horan could become the fourth member of One Direction to hit the top 10. Plus, moves for Portugal. The Man, Taylor Swift & Kelly Clarkson.
Meanwhile, Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)," at No. 2 on the Hot 100, becomes the most-streamed song of the week, reaching No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart, and Sam Smith soars onto the Hot 100 at No. 5 with "Too Good at Goodbyes," marking his highest debut and fifth top 10. The track also launches atop the Digital Song Sales chart as the week's best-selling download.
Who else makes notable Hot 100 chart moves this week?
"Slow Hands," Niall Horan
The track pushes 15-11 on the Hot 100, driven most heavily by airplay, as it lifts 5-3 on the Radio Songs chart, up 7 percent to 106 million all-format audience impressions in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music.
Can Horan become the fourth member (past or present) of One Direction to notch a solo Hot 100 top 10? Zayn has earned two, starting with the No. 1 "Pillowtalk" in 2016, while Harry Styles reached No. 4 in April with "Sign of the Times" and Liam Payne rose to No. 10 two weeks ago with "Strip That Down," featuring Quavo; it's currently at No. 12.

"Feel It Still," Portugal. The Man
As it lifts 18-14 on the Hot 100, the track (which samples The Marvelettes' 1961 No. 1 Hot 100 hit "Please Mr. Postman") reaches the Radio Songs top 10, rising 14-8 (80 million, up 14 percent).
On the Alternative Songs airplay chart, "Feel" ties Imagine Dragons' "Believer" (2017) and "Radioactive" (2013) and Foo Fighters' "Rope" (2011) for the second-longest reign this decade: 13 weeks. Muse's "Madness" holds the record for the most time atop the chart in the 2010s and in the list's 29-year history: 19 weeks, in 2012-13.
"…Ready for It?," Taylor Swift
After launching at No. 4 on the Hot 100 a week ago, the song tumbles to No. 21, as it experiences a second-week decline in sales and streams not atypical for a high-profile song not fully being promoted as an official radio single. It falls from No. 1 to No. 6 on Digital Song Sales (39,000 sold, down 71 percent) and drops 11-20 on Streaming Songs (15.6 million U.S. streams, down 18 percent).
Still, Swift's 22nd Hot 100 top 10 is surging at radio, a rarity for a non-focus track. It jumps 35-26 on the Pop Songs airplay chart, up 81 percent in plays in the week ending Sept. 17. Meanwhile, "Look What You Made Me Do" lifts 7-6 on Pop Songs (up 13 percent).
"Dusk Till Dawn," Zayn feat. Sia
The collab starts at No. 44 on the Hot 100, powered by its No. 13 rank on Digital Song Sales (30,000) and No. 35 start on Streaming Songs (11.8 million).
"Love So Soft," Kelly Clarkson
The first single from Meaning of Life, due Oct. 27, debuts at No. 62 on the Hot 100 and No. 14 on Digital Song Sales (29,000). "Love" is building in airplay, rising 21-14 on Adult Pop Songs and debuting at No. 21 on Adult Contemporary and No. 32 on Pop Songs.
