Harry Styles Covers Rihanna And Fleetwood Mac To Make Himself Look Cool

Taking Inspiration From Queens: Harry Styles Covers Rihanna And Fleetwood Mac Live featureHarry Styles stopped by the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge for his first-ever solo performance there. Harry re-visited his old One Direction haunt on his own, and was apparently feeling nostalgic–just not for 1D.

The singer brought a cover of “The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac. Harry is perhaps the world’s most famous Stevie Nicks stan, so it’s no surprise that he took on the track. Harry has settled in nicely with a five-piece band who had no trouble recreating Fleetwood Mac’s layered harmonies.

Stevie isn’t the only queen Harry paid tribute to during his performance. Rihanna got the royal treatment as Harry took on her summer 2017 bop with DJ Khaled, “Wild Thoughts.” Harry seemed to especially enjoy singing the line, “I know you want to see me naked,” even though he couldn’t give it as much flair as Rihanna.

Harry also brought two of his own tracks to the set: lead single “Sign of the Times” and rumored Taylor Swift relationship retrospective “Two Ghosts.”

Check out pics and video from Harry’s day at the BBC below.

Harry Styles To Debut His Single With Epic Radio Interview

Harry Styles To Debut His Single With Massive Radio Interview featureHarry Styles has been teasing his debut solo single lately.  As he prepares for his appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” Harry stopped by the BBC Radio 1 studios to co-host an episode of Nicholas Grimshaw’s show. The episode will air on Friday and serve as the world premiere of Harry’s single, “Sign of the Times.”

Harry recorded a promo promising to give fans the first listen to the song on Friday during the 8AM GMT broadcast. The One Direction singer will then hang out for most of the morning as Nicholas plays two hours of the three-hour interview he’s already conducted with Harry.

The news has England all shook up. Another presenter on BBC Radio 1 started taking calls from “unexpected” Harry fans. One caller was a self-described “manly man” who thinks Harry’s stuff will be better than Zayn Malik’s–which, for him, means it’ll also be better than Niall Horan’s.

See Harry in the studio below, plus hear some clips of Harry and a fan amping up this Friday. Anyone who misses Harry’s Friday interview will have a chance to catch him on BBC Radio 2’s “Saturday Breakfast Show” with Dermot O’Leary.

Charlie Puth Drops By BBC Radio 1 For Live Lounge Month

Charlie Puth Drops By BBC Radio 1 For Live Lounge MonthCharlie Puth stopped by the BBC Radio 1 studio to participate in the station’s Live Lounge Month. The singer took to the mic for an acoustic performance of his duet with Selena Gomez, “We Don’t Talk Anymore.” Charlie then played a cover of The 1975’s moody track, “Somebody Else.”

Afterwards, the radio station was curious to know what would make Charlie actually not talk to someone anymore as his song with Selena would suggest. “Somebody who is narcissistic, who will only talk about themselves,” Charlie says. “I love everybody, but I’ll just take a break for a day talking to them.”

Check out the videos below and let us know what you think of Charlie’s Live Lounge appearance.
