Harry Styles’ Single ‘As It Was’ Breaks Guinness World Record

Harry Styles has broken a Guinness World Record with his latest hit single ‘As It Was.’

The tune, which was released globally earlier this month, accumulated over 16 million streams on Spotify in its first 24 hours – earning Harry the record for the most streamed tracks on the platform in 24 hours by a male artist. (Adele holds the equivalent record for a female artists with her song ‘Easy on Me’ – that had a whopping 19 million streams on its first day of release!)

The popular single also ranked No. 1 in streams in 34 countries that day too, including Australia, America and the United Arab Emirates.


“After a little chat to Spotify, we can confirm that Harry Styles latest single, As It Was, has broken the record for most streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours (male),” the Guinness World Records announced on Twitter.

The song will feature in Harry’s upcoming album, ‘Harry’s House’ which is due out in May.

This isn’t the superstar’s first time breaking a World Record – back in 2014, his band One Direction became the first act to debut at No. 1 in the USA with their first three albums.
