Harry Styles is apparently headed one direction – to the top of the charts!
After December 2019 saw him earn his second chart-topper on the Billboard 200 courtesy of his sophomore album, ‘Fine Line’ (as we reported here), the 26-year-old is seeing the set’s third single – ‘Adore You’ – poised to replicate that success on the Billboard Hot 100.
Harry Styles’ “Adore You” vaults into the Hot 100’s top 10, rising from No. 16 to No. 7.
Styles adds his second solo Hot 100 top 10, after “Sign of the Times,” which debuted and peaked No. 4 in April 2017. He also made six trips to the top 10, in 2012-15, as a member of One Direction, rising as high as No. 2 with “Best Song Ever” in August 2013.
With the ascent of “Adore You,” Styles ties former 1D bandmate Zayn for the most solo Hot 100 top 10s by members of the group. Zayn’s “Pillowtalk” topped the chart for a week in 2016 and “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (Fifty Shades Darker),” with Taylor Swift, hit No. 2 in 2017. The act’s Liam Payne has notched one top 10 to-date, “Strip That Down,” featuring Quavo (No. 10, 2017).
The song’s trip to top 10 glory was fueled by a handsome mix of radio (76 million impressions), sales (6,000), and streaming (10.7 million) over the last week.
In other Styles news, the divo also learned ‘Adore You’ passed the Recording Industry Association of America’s (RIAA) threshold for Platinum status. Denoting sales equivalence of over 1 million units in the U.S., the accomplishment marks his second single to be bestowed such honor following his now 3x Platinum megahit, ‘Sign of the Times’ (2017).
