Harry Styles is adding a new honor to his accomplishments!
The 26-year-old “Watermelon Sugar” singer was named Variety‘s Hitmaker of the Year on Tuesday (November 10).
Harry is being honored for his second studio album Fine Line, as well as hit singles “Adore You” and “Watermelon Sugar.”
He will be featured in the fourth annual Hitmakers issue, with an extensive interview alongside original photography from Parker Woods, which will be released on December 2. This year’s Hitmakers event will be held virtually a day later, on December 3.
Variety will also honor Roddy Ricch as breakthrough artist of the year, Lewis Capaldi as songwriter of the year, Maren Morris with the crossover award, Columbia Records chairman/CEO Ron Perry as executive of the year, Wassim “Sal” Slaiby as manager of the year, The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” as hook of the year and Mustard as producer of the year.
“This year has been a game-changer for the music business, but the industry has persevered, with artists, creators and executives releasing and promoting new songs under incredibly challenging circumstances. Our Hitmakers issue and video program celebrates those artists and the people behind the scenes who are making sure the music gets heard. A heartfelt congratulations to all on this tremendous accomplishment,” said Variety‘s Shirley Halperin.
