These songs are everything you need to gear up for the pop sensation’s return.
On November 15, global singing and acting star Harry Styles announced his return to the Philippines as a part of his concert tour Harry Styles: Love On Tour. The British pop performer who has been compared to the likes of David Bowie and Mick Jagger is scheduled to perform at the Philippine Arena on March 14. This would mark the second stop of his Asia trip, right after kicking things off in Thailand three days earlier.
Styles’ fans, still reeling from his announcement, were treated to more groundbreaking news not 24 hours later as the 2023 Grammy Awards released their official list of nominees. The singer and “World’s Most Wanted Man” according to Rolling Stone, is finally in the big leagues, earning six nominations in major categories, including Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, and Song Of The Year.
Styles is known for his eccentric, gender-bending fashion choices, so his wardrobe throughout the concert will be highly-anticipated. As we gear up for the Grammy’s in February and Styles’ concert in March, let’s take a look back at Vogue’s first solo male cover star’s most covetable fashion moments. Here are five of his most stylish music videos you need to see:
Despite finding outright success after launching his solo career in 2016, the song “Watermelon Sugar” was what tipped the scales for Styles. The singer won his first-ever Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance for this song. In the music video, we see him by the shore on picnic blankets wearing brightly-colored cropped knits reminiscent of the 1970s.
Like “Watermelon Sugar,” the song “Adore You” accompanied his second-ever album Fine Line, but was released along with “Lights Up.” Fine Line earned him number 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart. The song’s music video captures the singer in a suit with wide lapels that channel his glam rock influences.
As It Was
After the success of his second album debut in 2019, Styles returned with another hit when he released his third album Harry’s House earlier in 2022. Its lead single “As It Was” propelled, yet again, to first place on Billboard’s charts, and stayed there for 14 non-consecutive weeks. Its music video, which racked up over 360 million views on Youtube, sees Styles removing his big red coat to reveal a crimson-colored bell-bottom bodysuit covered in geometric sequins.
Late Night Talking
Following “As It Was” is another single under Harry’s House called “Late Night Talking.” The music video takes viewers into a surreal dream world as Styles quite literally falls into his bed, wearing a classic pair of polka-dot pajamas. The singer eventually appears in a white suit jacket with a large boutonnière.
Music For A Sushi Restaurant
Arguably Styles’ most ambitious concept yet, “Music For A Sushi Restaurant” sees the singer washed up on shore as a half-octopus half-man. He gets taken to a restaurant to be cooked, but the staff discovers his talent and makes him perform, where he channels Elton John with a tuxedo jacket, large pearly sunglasses, and feather boa. Unfortunately, he loses his voice and meets a grim yet ambiguous end.
