The 10 Best Harry Styles Solo Songs of All-Time
Harry Styles’ musical career began in 2010 as a solo contestant for the British reality TV show “X Factor”. He was combined with four other young male contestants by the “X Factor” judges, which led to the formation of One Direction. The band became an instant sensation with a cult following that was mainly composed of young people from all over the world. The band released five albums, and in 2015, the band took a hiatus, and each of the boys went on to pursue their solo musical careers. It was not a surprise to see all the boys from the band establish their own successful careers since all of them were immensely talented. Harry Styles, one-time boyfriend of the famous Taylor Swift, the youngest member of the band, became particularly loved by fans for his music, curly hair, and a charming-yet-naughty demeanor. His 2017 epic single, “Sign of the Times,” was his debut single which was followed by a self-titled album that debuted on the number one spot. He released a second album by the name Fine Line later on, and it was a sign of better things to come for the young artist. Fine Line featured some common themes that many fans across the world fell in love with. The album’s main themes include breakups, joy, and relationships in general. The album contained songs such as “Watermelon Sugar,” “She,” and “Falling,” which showed his fans how much he had matured in terms of his style and vocals. “Fine Line” sold over 1 million copies in 2017 and was among the year’s best-selling albums. Many critics described the album as a fine album, and The Guardian magazine described it as a catchy, confident, and convincing album.
