Harry Styles Sets New Guinness World Record with Latest Single ‘As It Was’

Watermelon Sugar singer Harry Styles has added another feather to his cap. Recently the former One Direction member set a new Guinness World Record. Read the article further to know what record the rock star has made.

Which Guinness World Record has Harry Styles broken?

As per the news release by Guinness, the 28-year-old songwriter has broken the record for “most streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours (male).” That is pretty insane, isn’t it?

Harry’s track As It Was netted more than 16 million streams in its first 24 hours on the music streaming platform. The song saw the light of the day on April 1, 2022, and it also ranked first in streams in over 34 countries, including the United States.

As It Was is the lead single from Harry’s upcoming album Harry’s House. His album will be out on May 20, 2022. At the moment, the music video of the song has nearly 63 million views on YouTube.

Tanu Muino has directed the 70s-inspired music video of the song. In the video, we witness Styles looking dapper in a shimmery red outfit and the woman alongside him can be seen in a blue outfit. Spanish fashion designer Arturo Obegero created glittering outfits for the star.

As per the YouTube account of the Don’t Worry Darling star the video was “made with love by a creative team from Ukraine.”

We all know that the people of Ukraine are still fighting a battle against Vladimir Putin’s Russia. The Russian Invasion of Ukraine began on February 24, 2022, and sadly it is still going on. A.P.J Abdul Kalam once said, “War is never a lasting solution for any problem”, and we couldn’t agree more with the above quote.

When did the company announce that Harry has hit a milestone?

Guinness World Records issued a statement on Twitter on April 11, 2022, that read, “We were pleased to announce that the new @Harry_Styles single, As It Was, achieved the record for the most streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours (male).”

Harry’s new song has already set two other records on Spotify as well. The company further added, “As It Was became Spotify’s most-streamed song in a single day in 2022 so far, and the most streamed song in the US in a single day in Spotify history.”

Adele holds the same record in the female category

According to Guinness, Someone Like You singer holds the same record for female artists. Her song Easy On Me accumulated nearly 19 million streams on Spotify in one day. The track was released in the year 2021.

At the moment, the smashing hit has around 266 million views on the video-sharing platform YouTube. The song was dropped on October 15, 2021, through Columbia Records. It is the lead single from her fourth studio album named 30. She made her comeback to the world of music with this track after a total of 5 years.
