Zayn's "No Candle No Light" makes pop radio chart impact
Zayn’s No Candle No Light (ft. Nicki Minaj) moves into the Top 65 at pop radio in its first week of release.
The track was played 193 times during the week beginning November 18.
The song ranks as the Mediabase pop panel’s No. 62 song, which is a massive leap, as the week before it hadn't dented the Top 150.
Co-written by Zayn, No Candle No Light tells the story of couple whose relationship has run its course.
Minaj, one of the most prominent voices in hip-hop today, previously tweeted about the song causing a fan frenzy of anticipation, calling it one of her favorite collaborations.
Earlier this month, Zayn graced the cover of Vogue UK, making him the first male to do so in the history of the magazine.
His upcoming album is the follow up to the critically acclaimed Mind of Mine, released in 2016, which saw him become the first male solo artist in the world to simultaneously chart at No. 1 in the UK & US album charts in the first week of release.
The album's lead single PILLOWTALK hit No. 1 in 68 countries around the world, underlining his status as one of the most important artists of his generation.
Last week Zayn took the internet world by storm with his version of Allah Duhai Hai.
