Harry Styles’ debut solo album has shot to the top of the charts in the UK.
The singer’s eponymous record scored the number one spot in the UK Official Albums Chart after selling 57,000 copies in its first week of release.
Harry’s lead single ‘Sign of the Times’, debuted at number one on the Official Singles Chart last month and is currently number six. Furthermore, eight of the 10 songs from his album are now in the Top 100.
While 23-year-old Harry’s solo album has received critical acclaim, former bandmate Liam Payne admitted he is not too impressed.
Speaking recently, he said: “Harry’s song, um, I heard… I’ll be honest with you, it’s not my sort of music.
“It’s not something I’d listen to, but I think he did a great job of doing what he wanted to do. That’s the way I’d put it best, I think.
“I think the funny thing is, [Harry] would say the same thing about me because he doesn’t really listen to hip-hop music.
“Whereas it’s like my song’s more Rack City, and his song is more of a different era to something I’d listen to, I guess.”
