Harry is arguably the most popular former 1D member (with Zayn as his biggest competitor), and that's saying a lot—especially since all former members are among the world's influential twenty-something celebrities. So it comes as no surprise that his debut single, "Sign of the Times," topped the UK Singles Chart and peaked at #4 on the Hot 100.

Watch a live performance of "Sign of the Times" below.

Liam gave us some heat to jam to this summer with "Strip That Down," featuring Quavo, and "Get Low" with Zedd. He has no album out yet, but he's guaranteed to continue his rise as a solo pop star in 2018.

Check out the music video for "Strip That Down" below.
