I now this doesn’t happen to people like Harry Styles very often, but Harry Styles has been presented with the International Federation Of The Phonographic Industry’s Global Single Award for 2022, because he had the most successful track across all the digital platforms worldwide last year with ‘As It Was’.

And this really doesn’t happen to people like Harry Styles very often. By, which I mean people who are Harry Styles. Because this is his first ever IFPI Global Single Award, the record industry trade group confirmed yesterday.

Though, the announcement of that prize, it added, does also mark “the tenth anniversary of his other IFPI Award wins with previous band One Direction who topped the first ever IFPI Global Recording Artist Chart and also the IFPI Global Album Chart back in 2013”. So, while this doesn’t happen to people like Harry Styles very often, things a bit like it do. But that’s totally different.

“Congratulations to Harry Styles, and all of his team, on winning IFPI’s Global Single Of The Year Award”, says IFPI boss Frances Moore. “Harry first received an IFPI Award as part of One Direction when we first launched the IFPI Global Recording Artist Chart ten years ago, so it’s an honour to present him with an award this year for his stellar single ‘As It Was’ which has soundtracked the year for so many music fans around the world”.

“It’s wonderful to see such a diverse mixture of songs in the Global Singles Chart this year”, she goes on, “some familiar tracks from the previous year that continued to grow in 2022, amongst plenty of new tracks and some reimagined older tracks – all going to show that record companies are working hard to find new ways to ensure music fans around the world have access to such a wide range of music year on year”.
