This year was already an incredibly fruitful one for Harry Styles on Billboard charts, thanks to the consistent success of his Billboard 200 No. 1 album Fine Line and its top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hit “Adore You.” But now, he’s scaled to new heights – garnering his first No. 1 on the Hot 100 with the Fine single “Watermelon Sugar.”
On the latest Pop Shop Podcast (listen below), the team reviews just how “Watermelon Sugar” surged from No. 7 to No. 1 on the Aug. 15-dated chart, the tune’s wild success at radio over the past few months and what helped make “Watermelon Sugar” such a smash hit.
So far, since Fine Line's release last December, the set has yet to depart the top 25 on the weekly Billboard 200 chart, and has earned over 1.6 million equivalent album units in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. Meanwhile, the album's songs, including "Sugar," have generated 1.34 billion on-demand streams.
