What did we do deserve Harry Styles?
That's the question we've been ruminating on ever since the charming pop star kicked off his solo career with the release of his eponymous debut album in 2017, after years spent comfortably ensconced within the confines of the biggest boy band in the world (One Direction, if you've somehow forgotten). And it's one that only seems more pertinent as he prepares to take the stage in Studio 8H in Rockefeller Center as both host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live on November 16. The gig is his biggest promo moment yet as Harry readies the launch of his highly-anticipated sophomore effort, Fine Line, due on December 13, and will certainly allow everyone who may have missed his acting debut in Christopher Nolan's WWII film Dunkirk to see the superstar in a new light.
And while we may never be truly sure of what we did to deserve him--or that we even do at all--allow us to count all the ways that Harry is exactly the male pop star we need in these trying times.
