Harry Styles has his first official number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Watermelon Sugar.” The artist previously held the number 7 spot before surging to the top. The top spot was previously held by Styles’ ex-girlfriend and fellow artist, Taylor Swift with “Cardigan” from her Folklore album. According to Billboard the “Watermelon Sugar” singer received 14.2 million US streams. 

The former One Direction singer follows in the footsteps of his former bandmate Zayn who scored the number 1 spot with “Pillowtalk” in 2016. 

“Watermelon Sugar” currently holds the number 1 spot in sales and the Number 2 spot in airplay. Styles dropped a “behind the scenes” video for the number 1 which released on July 31. Many believe the song has soared to number 1 because #WatermelonSugarDay was trending on Twitter July 31 and August 3, which is thought to help Styles receive more downloads. 

Other artists to join styles on a celebratory week in the chars are fellow artists The weekend with “Blinding Lights,” taking the number 4 spot and Billie Eilish’s “My Future” taking the number 6 spot.
