Harry Styles Fine Line Part 13

Harry is quarantined with Jeff in LA in this grave time of plague. Will he do a live concert from home, as Post Malone did last night?

Travis Scott's virtual Fortnite concert was a genius idea. Irving Azoff manages him. I think they'll have something up their sleeve for Harry.

by Anonymousreply 704/25/2020

I always forget that Kid Harpoon is also managed by Full Stop. And this is from Billboard back in 2017:

'So far, Azoff has one data point to gauge the success of Full Stop Management: "The metric, for me, is just existing." Opened in March 2016, Full Stop owes its existence to three top-tier clients: Harry Styles of One Direction, Meghan Trainor and British songwriter-producer Kid Harpoon.'

I wonder how common it is for a music management company's success to rest partly on a songwriter? I also wonder what the original connection was. We know about Harry of course and Meghan was Tommy Bruce's friend and client ( apparently he even officiated at her wedding) but what is the connection with Kid Harpoon?

Who's Jeff?

by Anonymousreply 904/25/2020

R73 I also like looking at the figures and if you add in UK album sales the %s after 4 months for HS1 were approx 57% ie 57% of sales were in the US and UK and for Fine Line that figure is approx. 70% so only 30% of the sales of Fine Line after 4 months have been in countries outside the US and UK.

There is no doubt he has concentrated heavily on the US market this time around with the sound of the album/tour bundles/promo and in particular radio promo. In this regard if you read the radio airplay forums there was clearly a label push ( payola) to get him the one week at number 1 on Pop Radio and Adore You has been in freefall ever since. Apparently this is not uncommon but it also shows his team were not above it and it was the conclusion they wanted for the whole Adore You campaign....it was written as a radio hit , it had the massive Eroda marketing campaign behind it and it has been the only song sent to radio in the US.

Song wise Adore You has clearly been a hit in the US and UK but look at peak chart positions worldwide and it really hasn't done anything, ( for example, France 126, Germany 82, Italy 78, Sweden 40 compared to Sign of the times France 3 Germany 20 Italy 9 Sweden 15). So it hasn't been a worldwide hit at all and although the peaks for Lights Up were a bit better worldwide that was because it was the 1st single and it dropped very quickly after week 1. Falling has flopped pretty much universally even in the UK where I think they expected it to be a massive hit after the BRits performance akin to Lewis Capaldi's Someone You Loved. Even alot of the music forums thought it would be his big hit from the album but it just hasn't taken off.

So however well the album has done sales wise those sales have been heavily concentrated in the US and when Azoff and Rob Stringer spoke about 'global reach' being the aim of this album I'm not sure they've achieved it. And if If the criticism of HS1 was that he only had 1 hit single from it the same criticism can be levelled at Fine Line and unlike SOTT Adore You has not even reached top 5.

by Anonymousreply 1004/25/2020

R8 I can imagine the connection is Harry. His bassist Adam and Kid are friends since forever and Harry has known Adam since about 2011 (through Lou Teasdale) so he might have met Kid Harpoon even before going solo. Harry was also friends with Florence Welch and Lily Allen (was at her birthday party in 2014) and Kid worked with both.

by Anonymousreply 1104/26/2020

R10 I'm sure Adore You had a radio push, but if it would have just been payola, I guess they would have done it from the very start, not 4 months after the song was released? But as you said, it was written as a radio hit and has all the right ingredients: catchy hook, upbeat melody, impressive high notes, cute lyrics. It's also his only song with slight 80s vibes, which is a pop trend right now: The Weeknd's Blinding Lights, Dua Lipa's songs, Gaga's Stupid Love - they all have an 80s influence and so has Adore You. So I don't see why it shouldn't be popular with the radio stations. If an "unattractive" song like She would have become a radio hit, that would have been some impressive payola indeed lol.

I wonder why Falling didn't quite take off, but I think in the US it was also because at the time the video came out, Adore You was still rising, so the focus was on that instead of a big promo push for Falling. But yes, in general I thought it would do more.

Even though Fine Line's success outside of the US & UK isn't as huge, I think even reaching similar sales as HS1 is actually pretty good considering that a large part of the 1D fandom doesn't exist anymore and he had to attract new fans for even reach his 2017 numbers. I don't have the numbers after 4 months, but I think he actually did surpass HS1, even outside US & UK, just by a smaller margin. And since for example the music market in mainland Europe has far less importance than the US & UK (both commercially and in regards to star power), they might not really care if the Fine Line sound has more or less appeal here than HS1.

Interestingly while both the album and singles might not have reached as high chart positions, they seem to have more longevity. The singles might not be #1 hits, but their steady presence in the top 20 means they'll reach certifications much faster than any single from HS1 (apart from SOTT). Harry is still more of an album artist than a hit single artist and I'm not sure this will ever change, but overall his Fine Line singles do better than his (non SOTT) HS1 singles.

Whoa Hailee Steinfeld's new EP has five Niall diss tracks. She calls him out for infidelity and emotional cruelty. No more Teflon Niall!

by Anonymousreply 2905/08/2020

He'll probably be fine though. Because he IS Teflon Niall after all. In a way whatever is not working in terms of commercial success for him this era, it's working in terms of image, I guess. It's noticeable different to Harry, who is a great commercial success this era, but gets attacked every time he breathes (mostly by his own fans though). I suspect in that regard it's helpful that Niall's image is based on being a very normal, friendly dude, who is mostly focused on his music. There's less expectation of moral superiority and entitlement of the fans than for someone, who made TPWK his brand and where what he stands for and his message (as opposed to just his music or personality) is a major draw for fans.

Hailee Steinfeld is way more famous in the US than Niall, and her album is accusing him of sadism. His career is already on life support and this won't help.

R62 I know there's been rumors about Gerber but Harry has been hanging with the family for years. I can't imagine having a secret lover on family vacations, dinners with your kids, etc. Saw RG was sued a long time ago by a few women claiming sexual harassment. I don't know what Harry's deal is with the family but they are powerful and connected so maybe it's more a mentorship kind of thing.

by Anonymousreply 6505/24/2020

Harry has mostly older friends, a lot of married couples, some in their 30s, some in their 40s. And from what I've gathered Rande seems fairly grounded by celebrity standards, a family man, he is a big fan of classic rock (one article mentioned his classic rock playlist from Crosby, Stills & Nash - a fav of Harry - to Pearl Jam) and he's also into vintage sports cars. So it seems they share some interests and I can imagine they just got along really well. People just always focus on the age difference more than anything else.

He will probably reschedule for 2021, because the European leg already got rescheduled to early 2021.

If he ever gets around to rescheduling and is not too busy following and liking Patrisse Cullor's instagram posts, who finds Assata Shakur an "inspirational leader" and credits "social philosopher" Mao Zedong - who is responsible for the death of at least 45 million people (more than Hitler and Stalin combined) - with providing her "a new understanding around what our economies could look like" (because the Great Leap Forward was such a great idea?), as she apparently wants to abolish capitalism. Perfect for a white boi multimillionaire like Harry, who makes his millions by selling stuff to impressionable teenage girls and endorsing luxury products from Gucci lol.

Makes me wonder if this is truly his "Rumours" - as Stevie Nicks called it - in terms of "most successful album" or if this rather an indication of what's to come. Because if he keeps up the mass appealing pop sound for HS3 (and attention grabbing looks) he might break records.

by Anonymousreply 9206/18/2020

R92 I doubt it.

by Anonymousreply 9306/19/2020

He already did this era (biggest debut of a British artist in the US), so why not.

Although he might not go for such a mass appealing sound. Madison Cunningham, his opening act for Harryween, said in a new interview he specifically reached out to her, because he loved her album so much.

I'm listening to it right now and imho it has one more easy listening folk song (Song In My Head), but also a lot of very funky/jazzy songs (Pin It Down, Trouble Found Me), some with a bit of an alt rock sound (Plain Letters) and even some Ella Fitzgerald-like classic jazz songs (Something To Believe In, Dry As Sand). I'm curious how his fans will like her as opening act lol.

But also if this is the stuff he listens to in private (it would fit his playlist for Zane Lowe's Beat 1 quite well) and loves it so much, that he wants Madison to open for him, if he will let it influence HS3. Because I can't imagine it resonating much with the pop crowd.

by Anonymousreply 113Last Saturday at 4:31 PM

Yeah, it reminds me of Mark Owen's path after Take That. I guess Louis still has more support from his trusty Larries (as long as he doesn't start a family with Eleanor), because he's more present in the day and age of social media than Mark was after TT, but I imagine while his crazy fans celebrate now, it won't exactly get easier for him - unless he gets picked up by another, bigger label. There's no basis for that though. I wonder what that will mean for the second album he said he's working on now. In a way I'm actually curious what he'll write without the commercial pressure of a label in the background, if he truly dares to go full indie rock, where he said he he sees his musical future. Imho Kill My Mind and Walls were the best songs on his album, so it would be interesting.

by Anonymousreply 1149 hours ago

Agree about Walls and KMM. I also liked the more rocky live version of Defenceless.

Louis was hoarse by night 2 of his tour so I doubt he'd have completed the full sixty dates. He kept pointing the mic into the crowd so they could sing, far more than the average performer does. His bassist has a powerful voice which could be heard over Louis'. I've linked a video to a bit of a song where you can hear all this going on.
