Niall Horan's "Nice to Meet Ya" Acoustic Performance Video

Niall Horan's Stripped-Down Version of "Nice to Meet Ya" Might Be Better Than the Original

Niall Horan's original version of "Nice to Meet Ya" is a pop-rock track with strong Robbie Williams vibes (in a good way), but I have to be honest here: I think I might like his stripped-down version of the song better.

Still full of the swagger and playfulness that made the first edition of the song so catchy, Horan's live performance of the tune — which he shared on YouTube on Nov. 18 — has a raw quality to it that highlights the former One Direction singer's vocals. The song was cowritten by the 26-year-old singer-songwriter and his longtime collaborator, Julian Bunetta, and has the soulful groove and piano-driven sound that we hope Horan will stick with as he gears up for a new album.

Watch Horan's latest performance of "Nice to Meet Ya" above, and then if you still can't get enough (I wouldn't blame you), make sure you check out Diplo's remix (complete with an unsettling deepfake video, because . . . well, I don't really know why, but just go with it).
