Harry Styles’ critically acclaimed new single “As It Was” has topped charts around the world and has accomplished an array of streaming records. The new single debuted at #1 in the US on the Billboard Hot 100, his first track to debut atop the chart, and his second #1 alongside “Watermelon Sugar.” “As It Was” became the most-streamed song in the US in a single day in Spotify history (with 8.3 million streams), and the most-streamed song globally in a single day in 2022 so far (with 21.6 million streams), earning Harry the record for the biggest single day streams for a song by a male artist in global Spotify chart history. “As It Was” also broke the Apple Music streaming record for most 1st day streams for a song released in 2022 and most 1st day streams for a Spatial Audio release.

“As It Was” is the lead single from Harry’s highly anticipated upcoming album Harry’s House, his third solo studio album and first music release since 2019’s record breaking sophomore album Fine Line. The new 13-track full-length album was recorded in multiple locations across the UK, Los Angeles and Tokyo from 2020 to 2021.
