A sales-breaking record
The album, third and last release of the singer’s solo trilogy, was one of the most awaited and promising album of 2022. And its results show how fans couldn’t wait to complete the trilogy, adding Harry’s House to “Harry Styles” and “Fine Line.”
Harry’s House vinyl sold almost 150,000 copies within three days from the release. Styles surpasses the previous record owner Taylor Swift, who got her supremacy through “Red” (Taylor’s Version),” the 2021 remake of her 2012 fourth studio album. The new version of the album broke previous single-week sales records when it came out.

Moreover, not only Harry’s House, but also his previous trilogy’s solo LPs debuted at number one when they came out. Both his 2017 self-titled album and 2017 Fine Line reached the number 1 position of the Billboard 200.
