We knew Harry Styles had the chops for a HUGE solo career, but did anybody see this coming — and so fast??
According to the folks over at Hits Daily Double, Styles led the way this week with his new eponymous album that has opened to VERY strong reviews — no surprise there, since he was more or less expected to do that.
The surprise, though, is just how many records he’s selling!
For reference, let’s look back at Zayn Malik‘s debut solo effort in April of 2016, which recorded 156,000 sales plus streaming hits over the first week. Not a small number, and it was good enough go to #1 that week, but it won’t beat Harry.
But WOW. You go, Harry!
And come to think of it, the Saturday Night Live appearance, the video, all the pop-up concerts and special stars he’s been singing with… Harry has done it wisely! But still, almost 100,000 more albums?!
What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Is Harry going to sweep ’em all away just like he did this week??
Let us know in the comments (below)!!!
