10 Harry Styles Cover Songs That’ll Make You Weak at the Knees

Harry Styles is back on tour, wowing fans with his vocal stylings.

Not only does he perform songs of his own, but also brings guests on stage to sing famous tracks from other artists.

Sometimes he invites musicians to sing their own songs. Other times, he will get another artist to join him and they’ll tackle a new cover together.

Even before he started out as a solo artist, Styles performed covers with his band One Direction to acclaim from fans.

Newsweek has rounded up some of the most fun cover songs Styles has ever performed.

“Juice” by Lizzo

Styles and Lizzo are very close friends, both have been seen holding hands at the Brit Awards and covering each other’s songs. Lizzo famously sang “Adore You” in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, while Styles did a version of Lizzo’s song “Juice.”

They performed “Juice” together at Lizzo’s Sirius XM Pandora pre-SuperBowl Show in Miami, Florida, back in January 2020.

“Toxic” by Britney Spears

At his recent ‘Harryween’ concert, which saw him dress up like Pennywise the clown from Stephen King’s IT, Styles performed his own track, “Medicine.” Later, the music took a turn and became the iconic Britney song, “Toxic”.

“You’re Still The One” by Shania Twain

Styles has spoken before about how much of an influence Shania Twain’s “You’re Still the One” has been on him. He once told Entertainment Tonight: “I think both my music and fashion main influence was probably Shania Twain… I think she’s amazing.”

He performed the song at Madison Square Garden alongside country singer Kacey Musgraves, and since Twain has said she would like to collaborate with the One Director star.

“Sledgehammer” by Peter Gabriel

Styles performed the song from former Genesis leader Peter Gabriel in March 2020, while performing on the Howard Stern Show. Asked why he wanted to perform the song, he said he thought it was “the best-mixed track ever” and they had spent time in Gabriel’s studio while recording his 2019 album Fine Line.

“Ultralight Beam” by Kanye West

Back in 2017, Styles played a secret gig at The Garage in London. Here, he brought out a whole new version of “Ultralight Beam,” from Kanye West‘s 2016 album The Life of Pablo.

Sabienna Bowman of Bustle said of the performance: “One Direction fans have always known Styles was a musical force, but moments like this go a long way of showing the rest of the world just how much the singer has to offer.”

“The Chain” and “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac

Another singer Styles has clear reverence for is Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac. They have a close friendship, with Styles inducting Nicks into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2019, at which they performed Nicks’ “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.”

He also performed Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, and has brought her on stage on numerous occasions.

One of these more classic moments was when he was joined by Nicks on stage at The Forum in 2019, and they sang the epic ballad “Landslide.”

“Big Yellow Taxi” by Joni Mitchell

On Valentine’s Day 2020, Styles and his band performed on the Zoe Ball show on BBC Radio 2 in the U.K.. There, they performed an acoustic version of Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi,” with Styles’ vocals ringing out with some hefty falsetto.

“One Way or Another” and “Teenage Kicks” by Blondie and The Undertones

Back before he was a solo artist, Styles and his band One Direction performed a charity single for British Comic Relief in 2013. The song was a mash-up of Blondie’s “One Way Or Another,” ending in The Undertones’ “Teenage Kicks.”

The song was accompanied with a music video which saw the boys jokingly pestering the former U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron.
