The bedimpled charming crooner of the boy band One Direction who later on ventured into a solo career. Not to mention, Harry Styles contributed to the creation of the song 'Sign of the Times' (2017).
February 1, 1994
Harry Styles rose to fame as a solo contender at ‘The X Factor’ (2004) who failed to advance to the next round. Too good to lose the competition, Simon Cowell, the influential judge on the show, signed him up together with four other soloists. Shortly after, they were formed as the ultra-popular boy band, One Direction.
According to reports, their record contract was worth £2 million. Prominently known for their songs \’Steal My Girl’ (2014), ‘Story of My Life’ (2013), ‘Little Things’ (2012), ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ (2011), the famed boy group sold almost eight million albums, 26 million singles, and received a multitude of awards. In 2015, they announced their indefinite hiatus. Styles pursued a solo career and released his first self-composed single, ‘Sign of Times’ (2017).
Evidently, One Direction phenomenally gained prominence that their 2011/2012 UK tour was sold out in only 12 minutes after posting.
