Niall broke out from One Direction in 2016, performing his top 20 hit "This Town" at the 2016 AMAs. Since then, Niall has released his #1 album "Flicker." Post Malone released his debut album "Stoney" in late 2016, and he's already working on a new project "Beerbongs & Bentleys" featuring the #1 pop smash "Rockstar." Who will win New Artist of the Year?🎤 🏆

The Votes Are In!

Niall broke out as a solo pop-rock superstar since his days as a Directioner. Nowadays, he has two top 20 pop hits under his belt—"This Town" and "Slow Hands." And his debut album "Flicker" topped the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart in its first week of release. 

Below are some notable lyrics to Niall's highest charting U.S. hit so far—"Slow Hands," per Genius

🎶Slow, slow hands. Like sweat dripping down our dirty laundry. No, no chance. That I'm leaving here without you on me. I, I know. Yeah, I already know that there ain't no stopping. Your plans and those...slow hands (woo). Slow hands.🎶

Post Malone is clearly on the rise. He dropped his debut album "Stoney" in December 2016, peaking at #4 on the Billboard 200. The LP features top 20 hit "White Iverson" and top 10 hit "Congratulations" featuring Quavo. He's following up his debut LP with another project "Beerbongs & Bentleys." The #1 pop hit "Rockstar" featuring 21 Savage leads new upcoming effort. The smash "Rockstar" perfectly explains the direction Post is heading in. 

Below are some notable lyrics to "Rockstar," per Genius

🎶I've been fuckin' hoes and poppin' pilliesMan, I feel just like a rockstar (star, ayy, ayy)All my brothers got that gasAnd they always be smokin' like a Rasta (-sta)Fuckin' with me, call up on a UziAnd show up, name them the shottas (-tas)When my homies pull up on your block. They make that thing go grrra-ta-ta-ta (ta, pow, pow, pow, ayy, ayy).🎶
