Styles' own single finally dropped April 7 and gave fans a preview into the very not-boy band sound of his upcoming album.
Harry is in high demand. Harry Styles fans even posted on their Twitter account that they can not still hear the song because of the short problem.
Even if One Direction has finally launched their solo careers, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik still have a lot of followers on their social media accounts. This, unfortunately, meant that the singer lost thousands of streams, which would have possibly catapulted his new single to the top. There is no doubt to this because the new song was off to a great start despite the minor setback.
Ed remains at number two but with his song Galway Girl - last week's second place finisher - while Shape Of You has slipped to fourth place. The latter has been topping the charts for the past 13 weeks but it is clear that Styles nearly dethroned Sheeran from the top spot.
If you're still using Windows Vista, you need to upgrade right NOW
Microsoft has been publishing reminders that Windows Vista's end of support date is impending for several months. The company is said to bidding farewell to Windows Vista after more than 10 years since its launch.
The One Direction star's debut release has so far racked up 47,000 copies across all formats, versus Shape Of You's 39,000, and there's still 48 hours to go in this week's chart race.
According to reports, Harry was *this* close to landing himself the role of the famous Star Wars character in the next instalment of the film franchise, but narrowly missed out because executives thought his blossoming solo career would overshadow the role.
Harry, 23, received much praise last week as he released Sign Of The Times, being compared to David Bowie by some, although there were others who described the track as "boring".
"Sign of the Times" demonstrates Styles' vocal growth, from his raspy vocal range all the way to his angelic falsetto.
