As a former member of One Direction, Zayn Malik is no stranger to topping the charts, but the U.K. singer hit the No. 1 spot on his own this week with debut single “Pillowtalk.” The sexy slow jam debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and On Demand Songs charts, the U.S. Digital Songs Chart, and the U.K. singles sales chart. “Pillowtalk” has also sat atop Spotify’s global chart since its Jan. 29 release, becoming the streaming service’s fastest track by a debut artist to hold the spot.

“Thank you to all my fans and supporters,” Malik said in a statement, “we have achieved this together and I am grateful.”

The week after the track’s initial release, the 23-year-old shared an acoustic version of the song and teased his next single, “Late Nights.” The song would presumably join “Pillowtalk” on Malik’s solo record Mind of Mine, which drops this March on the anniversary of his departure from One Direction
