The first British Invasion might have brought musicians like The Beatles and the Rolling Stones to American shores decades ago, but the newest "invasion" has delivered something a little different. The rakish, mischevious Harry Styles has taken the US by storm, and there’s no stopping this former One Direction star from embarking on a solo career that even the most successful musicians would kill to have!
The Art of Winning While Losing
Harry famously got his start by auditioning for The X Factor in the UK, Simon Cowell's competition show that has catapulted many to fame. While he washed out of the competition as a single performer, he and four other boys his age threw down together as a group to get back in the competition. These other four, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik, took a few weeks off, practiced their heart out, and jumped back into the fray with Harry as One Direction.
They lost. Again. This time, though, they came in third for the entire competition. Simon Cowell saw their potential and signed them pretty much immediately, and January 2011 saw the birth of One Direction with a £2 million record contract. From 2011 to 2016, this Brit boy band was unstoppable, selling 7.6 million albums and 26 million singles in the US alone. Harry and the boys would take home seven BRIT Awards, seven American Music Awards, six Billboard Music Awards, and four MTV Video Music Awards before going on indefinite hiatus.
Solo is the Way to Go
A little thing like the band breaking up didn’t stop Harry Styles. His self-titled debut solo album was an instant success, rising to the number one spot in the US, the UK, and Australia. The album was touted as the best in 2017 by more than one major publication and helped launch Harry as a legitimate star in his own right. A major worldwide tour followed, which raked in more than $61 million around the globe.
This Brit’s not resting on his laurels, though. After throwing his hat in the ring in Hollywood, Styles landed a role in Christopher Nolan’s epic film Dunkirk, with his debut appearance earning praise for his acting ability as well. Is this guy unstoppable or what? Signs point to yes, and we’re all waiting to see what Harry’s got up his sleeve next!
