Former One Direction member Harry Styles has started his debut solo album, which he shares his name with, at No. 1 in the United Kingdom, where the singer has been a star ever since he graduated from The X Factor back in 2010. Harry Styles managed to move about 57,000 copies in its opening frame, which is a sizable beginning across the pond. 
Harry Styles sounded like as a solo artist, the British musician released the album’s lead single. 
“Sign of the Times” displays a simplistic, yet bright melody. Despite its understated presence, the verses and pre-chorus serve as the most alluring parts of “Sign of the Times,” aiding in Styles’ close to chest songwriting and vocal compassion throughout the rest of the song.
The 23-year-old singer Harry states that “This is the song I’m most proud of writing.” The debut single has drawn enormously positives parallels towards the musical offerings of the late icons Prince and David Bowie. It’s an inauguration fueled with triumph and is wholeheartedly a great taste of what’s to come from the already rising musician.
