The UK-born singer and songwriter, Harry Styles, has cemented her position as one of the most popular celebrities in the world. He gained recognition and fame as a member of the cult British boyband, A direction. The group had many fans, sold millions of records worldwide and earned each singer enormous popularity.
One of the band members was Harry Styles who over the years achieved phenomenal success in his solo musical career. Today, Styles has a growing fan base and several famous songs are climbing the Billboard charts, making him arguably the most famous musical artist of all time.
His song “As It Was” broke all records, leaving behind powerful creative voices in the music world like Elton John and Mark Ronson. Today, it is billed as “the most streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours” according to the Guinness Book of World Records. With great fame comes many challenges and Styles is no exception to this rule. Recently, many questions have been raised about whether the “Sign of the Times” singer writes his own songs.
Styles has mentioned several times that besides being a great singer, he is also a songwriter who wrote the lyrics to almost all of his popular songs. During his stay in A directionStyle reportedly wrote 20 songs for the band.
Currently, he claimed to have composed the lyrics for songs from his hit albums such as Thin line And Harry Styles. He also claimed to have composed lyrics for other pop sensations such as Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor and Michael Buble, to name a few.
In April 2022, he was discredited by Noel Gallagher, who very explicitly challenged popular belief about the former The X factor contestant writing his songs. In an interview with the daily starhe said:
“The X Factor is a TV show, it has nothing to do with music, it has nothing to do with music. Anything that comes from there, it has nothing to do with music. You’re not telling me Harry Styles is currently in a room somewhere writing a song I can assure you he doesn’t have an acoustic guitar trying to write a middle eight for some thing.
There has been growing speculation about Styles contributing to his recent album. Harry’s house when it comes to writing song lyrics. The album was hailed as a quintessential Harry Style album and was an instant hit upon release. However, composing and writing the songs on this album was a collective effort and the credit doesn’t just go to Styles.
Styles along with Kid Harpoon and Tyler Johnson wrote the lyrics for five of the album’s 13 tracks. Other co-writers such as Mitch Rowland can be credited for “Music for a Sushi Restaurant” and “Keep Driving”. Others like Amy Allen and Sammy Witte co-wrote “Matilda” and “Cinema”, respectively.
Nonetheless, the singer’s fame and talent continue to rise, and fans look forward to more of Styles’ masterpieces.
