As the clock struck 12AM ET late Thursday/early Friday, Harry Styles’ sophomore album “Fine Line” entered the market.
The eagerly anticipated album predictably generated instant buzz — said buzz will almost certainly power it to #1 on the coming week’s album chart.
Helping the cause will be prominent playlist placement on Spotify. “Treat People With Kindness” currently occupies the #1 slot on New Music Friday in the US (and surely other major markets), while “Falling” is #11.
— The emotional, soaring “Falling” also holds #2 on US Apple Music’s “Hot Tracks” playlist. And while the playlist itself has not yet been updated, the new description suggests that “Treat People With Kindness” will appear prominently on Apple’s New Music Daily.
