Niall Horan's "Too Much To Ask" has amassed over 200M Spotify streams

Niall Horan's single Too Much To Ask has now incredibly garnered over 200 million Spotify streams.

The pop ballad was the third single off the One Direction star's debut studio album, Flicker, and was released on September 15 of 2017. 

The music video was released on September 21 of the same year.

Parts of the video were shot at London's iconic Barbican, a location previously used by many music stars.

The lyrics for the track include: "My shadow's dancing / Without you for the first time / My heart is hoping / You'll walk right in tonight / Tell me there are things that you regret / 'Cause if I'm being honest I ain't over you yet."

The song reached the top 10 in Hungary, Ireland, and Scotland as well as the top 20 in Australia, Belgium, Lebanon, Malaysia, the Netherlands, and Slovakia.

About it, Horan said: "It's a special one. I actually wrote this song the day after I wrote 'This Town' so I felt like it got off to an alright start when I started writing the album. It's a very nice, beautiful song and means a lot to me."

Flicker was released on October 20 in 2017. The record entered the Billboard 200 Chart at No. 1, with 152,000 equivalent album units earned during the week ending October 26. 

It was certified gold in the UK in May this year, and 2x platinum in Ireland.

Horan has amazingly made history as the first Irish artist ever to hit 1 billion Spotify streams.
