He’s an ex One Direction superstar and fashion icon, but how well will you do in a quiz all about Harry Styles lyrics?

After appearing on the seventh series of The X-Factor in 2010, Harry Styles, along with bandmates Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne shot to stardom as the boy band One Direction. After five years of global domination, the band announced a hiatus, making time for the band members to work on solo projects.

In March 2017, Harry dropped his debut single ‘Sign of the Times,’ a soft rock power ballad. The single showed Harry’s evolution into a mature solo singer-writer and talented vocalist. In their end of year countdown Rolling Stone put it as the best song of 2017. Following shortly after, Harry released his self titled debut album which received critical and commercial success globally.

In 2019 Harry released Fine Line, yet again showing his progression from the Up All Night One Direction days. When asked to describe what this album was about Harry stated that it is “all about having sex and feeling sad.” Fine Line is heavily influenced by psychedelic rock, progressive pop and funk music, with Harry experimenting with a range of different sounds never heard before in his music.

Lyrically, Harry takes a lot more risks and uses a lot of euphemisms. Notably, Camille Rowe, Harrys’ ex-girlfriend, has a small feature on a song, with a voicemail from her appearing on ‘Cherry’.

Harry isn’t just known for his music but for his wild fashion sense. Harry often mixes mens and womenswear and loves bright colours. Rockstars David Bowie and Keith Richards are clear influences not only in his music but in his fashion sense too!
