If you needed more proof that the Harrys are made to be kings, here it is. Taken from the album “Harry’s House”, released last May, the single “As it Was” ranks first in the rankings of the most listened to songs of the year on the Spotify (1.6 billion plays) and Deezer platforms. .
On the less popular Apple Music, “Stay” by Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber comes out on top. “As it Was” had immediately been a huge commercial success. From the first twenty-four hours of broadcast, the song had smashed the records by immediately becoming the most listened to title of all time in one day, accumulating 21.6 million streams.

“This shoot is one of the best days of my life, but on the second day, my country was invaded. So you can imagine the many emotions that we felt, me and my Ukrainian team. We put so much love into this video, and it shows on screen. »
An investment that has paid off, since the clip now has 371 million views on Youtube. Between this musical success and his roles in “Don’t Worry Darling” and “My Policeman”, the year 2022 was definitely that of Harry Styles.
