Looks like he didn't need his brothers after all!
Zayn Malik may have taken a huge risk by leaving One Direction behind in favor of a solo career last year… but it looks like his decision paid off.
The numbers are officially in for Billboard's Hot 100 for the week ending February 20, and Pillowtalk is sitting nicely at No. 1!

For those of you keeping track, the lead single off Mind of Mine's debut at the top of the chart marks the first No. 1 song for any of the boys from One Direction.
In fact, the closest 1D has ever come was Best Song Ever's peak at No. 2 back in 2013 — clearly showing it was, contrary to popular belief, not the best song ever.
The rest of the Top 10 include two songs from Justin Bieber, an Adele staple, and not too surprisingly, an entrance from Rihanna.
Ch-ch-check out everyone Zayn managed to beat with Pillowtalk (below)!!!
