Harry Styles Set for Third Week at No. 1 in U.K. Chart
Fresh from performing at Coachella over the weekend (watch below), Harry Styles’ chart supremacy in the U.K. with “As It Was” looks set to continue for a third week.
The track was released through Erskine and Columbia on 1 April 2022 as the lead single from his upcoming third studio album, Harry’s House (2022). The song was written by Styles alongside the song’s producers Kid Harpoon and Tyler Johnson.
The English superstar’s comeback track edged out Jack Harlow’s “First Class” for the race to No. 1 last week, and, based on early sales and streaming data, Styles is likely to sit atop the U.K. Singles Chart again.
“First Class” is the leader in the United States and Australia, but it can’t seem to get past Styles “As It Was” in the U.K., which leads the chart blast, with Harlow’s hit sitting at No. 2.
In the absence of any new arrivals in the Top 20, Camila Cabello and Ed Sheeran’s “Bam Bam” continues to rise, potentially lifting 10-9, for a new U.K. chart peak.
Further down the chart, tracks from Tate McRae (“She’s All I Wanna Be” up 17-15) and David Guetta, Ella Henderson and Becky Hill (“Crazy What Love Can Do” up 20-19), are all rising. Hill could bag two Top 20 appearances; her single “Run” featuring Galantis lifts 25-20 on the chart blast.
“As It Was” debuted at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Styles’ second chart-topping song, after “Watermelon Sugar”. It also entered at the top of the U.K. Singles Chart, becoming his second number-one song there, after “Sign of the Times”. Elsewhere, “As It Was” topped the charts in New Zealand, Australia, Austria, Belgium (Flanders), Canada, Denmark, Greece, Ireland, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland, and peaked within the top ten of the charts in Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Portugal and South Africa.
