Favorite Quotes from Harry Styles

“You get moments all the time that kind of make you pinch yourself, some of them make you quite emotional. Winning a BRIT was a big moment because we were just so excited to be at the awards in the first place. Selling out Madison Square Garden was pretty amazing too. Then we woke to the news that our UK tour was sold out. It was crazy.” – Harry Styles
“I think, you know, we entered the ‘The X Factor’ in the U.K., and you kind of want someone who knows what they’re talking about to tell you if you’re any good or not instead of just your mum saying that you like it when you sing.” – Harry Styles
“You’re never going to get used to walking into a room and have people screaming at you. There’s a lot of things that come with the life you could get lost in. But you have to let it be what it is. I’ve learned not to take everything too seriously.” – Harry Styles

Career

Styles' musical style has been described as soft rock, pop, and rock, with elements of folk and Britpop. The musical style on his debut solo album was described as a "mish-mash of Los Angeles' style classic rock and ballads" by NME, invoking an "intimately emotional Seventies soft-rock vibe" by Rolling Stone, and "synthesis[ing] influences from the last half-century of rock" by Time magazine.

Styles released his self-titled debut album through Columbia Records in 2017. It was certified platinum in the US, while its lead single, "Sign of the Times", topped the UK Singles Chart.

He made his acting debut in Christopher Nolan's 2017 war film Dunkirk. Styles' second album, Fine Line (2019), debuted atop the US Billboard 200 with the biggest sales debut from an English male artist in the US, and was listed among Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" in 2020.

Throughout his career, Styles has earned several accolades, including a Brit Award, an American Music Award, two ARIA Music Awards, and a Billboard Music Award. Outside of his music, he is also known for his flamboyant fashion, and is the first man to appear solo on the cover of Vogue magazine.

Following a suggestion from his mother, on 11 April 2010, Styles auditioned as a solo contestant for the seventh series of the British televised singing competition The X Factor, singing a rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely".

He advanced to bootcamp, but failed to progress to the "Boys" category at "judges' houses". Four others in his age group also failed, but they were put together as an ensemble in July 2010, during the "bootcamp" stage of the competition, thus qualifying for the "Groups" category mentored by Simon Cowell.

The group consisting of Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik, got together for two weeks to practise. Styles said he had suggested the name One Direction to his bandmates and they agreed to keep it.

Within the first four weeks of the live shows, they were Cowell's last act in the competition, and they then gained popularity in the UK. The group eventually reached The X Factor final, and finished in third place.

In January 2011, it was confirmed that One Direction had signed a reported £2 million record contract with Cowell's label Syco Records. The group's debut single, "What Makes You Beautiful", bowed at number one on the UK Singles Chart in September 2011, and their first studio album, Up All Night, was released two months later.

One Direction became the first British group to have their debut album reach number one in the United States.

In February 2016, Styles left One Direction's management company, Modest Management, and joined Jeffrey Azoff's Full Stop Management as well as talent agency CAA. Styles launched his own record label, Erskine Records, in May and signed a recording contract with Columbia Records as a solo artist in June.

Styles co-wrote the song "Someday" with Meghan Trainor for Michael Bublé's album, Nobody but Me, released in October. Recording for Styles' debut album took place throughout 2016 in Los Angeles, London, and Port Antonio, Jamaica, where Styles and his collaborators had a two-month writing retreat in the autumn.

His self-titled debut album was released in May 2017, whereupon it debuted at number one in several countries, including Australia, the UK and the US. The record was influenced by 1970s soft rock and was described by Variety as a "classic cocktail of psychedelia, Britpop, and balladry".

Harry Styles yielded two more singles, "Two Ghosts" and "Kiwi". The film, Harry Styles: Behind the Album, which documented the writing and recording process for the album, was also released in May exclusively on Apple Music.

Styles made his film debut in Christopher Nolan's war film Dunkirk, in July 2017, playing a British soldier named Alex who is a part of the Dunkirk evacuation in World War II. He appeared alongside an ensemble cast which included Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, and Tom Hardy.

In November 2017, BBC One broadcast Harry Styles at the BBC, a one-hour television special presented by Nick Grimshaw. At 2017 ARIA Music Awards, Styles received an award for Best International Artist. He guest hosted The Late Late Show with James Corden in December.

"Lights Up", the lead single from Styles' second album Fine Line, was released in October 2019, debuting in third place in the UK. The song features a "soft-touch re-entry into the pop slipstream" according to music writer Jon Caramanica.

Styles performed "double duty" as host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live in November. The second single preceding Fine Line, "Adore You", was released in December, peaking at number seven in the UK and at number six in the US.

At the 2020 Brit Awards, Styles was nominated for British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year. He was also named Variety's Hitmaker of the Year 2020.

In March 2020, he performed an NPR Tiny Desk concert, and in July, he narrated a bedtime story titled Dream with Me for the relaxation app Calm. Later that year, Styles received the Favorite Pop/Rock Album for Fine Line at the 48th American Music Awards, the Best International Artist at the 34th ARIA Music Awards, and the Chart Achievement at the 27th Billboard Music Awards.
