Since the start of his solo career Harry Styles has covered songs from a wide variety of artists, some of which he’s put his own unique spin on. It’s always interesting to watch a performer cover another artist’s song to see how they make it into their own, and Harry is an expert. Here are five of the best covers we think Harry’s done so far:
1. “Wild Thoughts” by DJ Khaled (ft Rihanna & Bryson Tiller)
Harry performed “wild Thoughts” when he was at the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge back in January. While this was a pretty unexpected song choice for Harry, what he did with it was pretty amazing, but let’s be real, are we really even surprised? check it out:
2. “Ultralight Beam” by Kanye West
It was very shocking to me when I heard Harry was covering “Ultralight Beam, but he managed to truly make it his own and it was absolutely beautiful. Harry’s stripped down version of the song really brings out all of the emotion in the lyrics, making it more powerful than the original.
3. “Just A Little Bit of Your Heart” by Ariana Grande
You may or may not know this, but Harry actually wrote “Just A Little Bit of Your Heart” specifically for Ariana! If you’ve heard it before, you know how powerful and beautiful it is, so hearing Harry perform it live was really something special. Even more special is the fact that Harry performed it in Manchester, England, where the tragic bombing happened last year at the same arena during one of Ariana’s concerts. Harry’s rendition of the song is really touching and you can see his beautiful performance here:
4. “Girl Crush” by Little Big Town
Harry performed a very beautiful cover of “Girl Crush,” and its such a breathtaking performance that will literally give you goosebumps when you listen to it. Our favorite part? That Harry’s vocal talent shines throughout the entire song. *Swoon*
5. “The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac
Harry Styles made his cover of this song by Fleetwood Mac more iconic than it already was during his live shows. He brings a lot of energy and power to this song when he sings it, making it one of our favorite covers he’s ever done. Not only are his vocals perfect for this song, but there’s some extra passion when her performs it, knowing that he’s actually been joined by Stevie Nicks on stage. He’s gotta make her proud!
As you can see, there have been so many amazing songs that Harry has covered and we LOVE seeing how he makes each one his own. So, which one’s your favorite?
