Harry Styles’ new album Fine Line has topped charts around the world and has accomplished an array of history-making records. The album has debuted at #1 in the US on the Billboard 200 with over 478,000 equivalent album units sold and 393,000 traditional albums sold (sixth best-selling traditional album of the year in just under a week), making history as the biggest sales week for a solo UK male artist’s album since Nielsen Music began electronically tracking sales data in 1991. It also marks the fourth-biggest vinyl sales week in Nielsen music history. Fine Line has also drawn over 100 million on-demand audio streams in just the first week. This marks the 3rd highest debut for any artist this year, and is the biggest week for a pop album by a male artist in four years.
The astonishing US debut comes hot on the heels of Styles' international success where the album has entered charts at #1 in over 20 countries, including the US, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Mexico, Netherlands, Sweden, Brazil and across Southeast Asia. Styles has now become the first UK male artist to debut at #1 with his first two albums.
Styles celebrated the release with a sold-out one-night-only concert at the Forum in Los Angeles where he played the album in full from front to back for the very first time and was joined by Stevie Nicks for a special performance of “Landslide.” He also guest hosted The Late Late Show with James Corden, which featured a performance of his new single “Adore You” and a special edition of Crosswalk The Concert. Following on from his appearance on the ELLEN Show on Tuesday, Styles headed to the UK for four performances on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. He wrapped theweek with an intimate show in London at the Electric Ballroom with a surprise appearance from Stormzy. Styles will kick off his global ‘Love on Tour’ in April 2020.
