Harry Styles' Newest Album Has What We All Need

Harry Styles' Newest Album Has What We All Need

Harry Styles' new album just came out and it touches on so many different topics.


Harry Styles introduced his Fine Line album as the second album of his solo career. His album from 2017 kicked off his new musical sound that has sort of folky vibes to it while still staying in the pop realm and he's even dressing the part more now. It seems that Harry enjoys playing with different methods and styles with each song he makes, giving all of them their own unique twist. His first album had a lot of slow songs to it, but this album seems a little more upbeat while still having some token slow tunes. With 12 songs on his newest album, Harry takes his listeners on a journey of love, loneliness, and a bit of fun.

Starting the album off with "Golden" seemed like a great place to start. For me, it opened up the concepts of finding someone that you think is amazing but also feeling like they're out of your league or your not good enough as well as feelings of loneliness and fear of being alone that are prevalent throughout the album. This song especially brings up liking someone who is too good for you with lyrics like, "I know you were way too bright for me", and "I'm hopeless, broken, so you wait for me in the sky... brown my skin just right". Listeners are shown a scenario with a so-called "golden" girl described almost like the sunshine who waits hopefully in her angelic state for her admirer to improve positively. It's a song bringing the motivation to improve yourself for the better and to keep climbing high.

The third song of the album and the third public pre-release song, "Adore You" is easily one of my favorite songs. Its lyrics are so simple, but they still speak to me as the ultimate crush song with a little twist. Normally, the typical crush song asks for being in a relationship with someone but this song is straight-up just about liking someone and wanting to be around them. The song overall has absolutely beautiful lyrics that anyone with a crush could relate to one hundred percent. My favorites are: At the very beginning: "Walk in your rainbow paradise", "I get so lost inside your eyes", and "honey, I'd walk through fire for you, just let me adore you". If you're looking for a song to dedicate to someone special in your life, look no further than this one!

"Falling" and "To Be So Lonely" make the sort of downfall of the album's storyline. A more emotional side to things is expressed in both of these songs with "Falling" talking about a breakup and feeling lost and angry after it and "To Be So Lonely" shares more of the aftermath of the whole situation. Both are heartbreaking and emotional, but use this to relate to listeners and tug at our heartstrings while also making us contemplate the lyrics. "To Be So Lonely" talks about regretting past actions and sort of wishing they could be undone. Because of not being able to change what happened and truly express feelings, we are shown someone who is lonely and stuck in this loop while still wanting someone.

If nothing else, both of the above songs bring Harry back down to a more human level. He may have been put up on a high pedestal by his fans, but he's still a person like the rest of us and makes mistakes. He hates himself for what happened as the background for "Falling" and doesn't know how to handle it. Surely we've all felt this way about a situation in our life that may not even be related to a relationship. It's a song that everyone can relate to and will, therefore, make us all so emotional. Throughout the whole song, I could feel the tears coming and I believe that's just how it should be.

Overall, I think Harry Styles' "Fine Line" album is absolutely amazing and I might even prefer it over his debut album. There's an even blend of upbeat and emotional songs that share his own style and personality spread across the album to satisfy everyone's preferences. We hear songs that talk about falling in love, making mistakes and learning from them, learning who you are and being happy with yourself, etc. I found most of the songs to be uplifting and inspiring, proving that we can be whoever we choose to be. If you're just starting out with Harry Styles (where have you been) or are just looking for something new to listen to, please give this album a listen! I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

I've always been interested in any product that can get me the Jennifer Lopez-esque natural glow. I'm Indian and have medium-toned skin, so getting darker was never really the goal. Rather, I've always looked for a product that would even out my skin tone and cellulite, basically making my legs look Photoshopped.

Now more than ever we're craving that healthy, tan glow most of us only get after spending a week poolside with margarita in hand. We may not be spending an SPF-soaked summer hitting on our local lifeguards. But when we're going on socially-distanced walks outside, taking viral-worthy selfies, or just want to test out the best self-tanners for when you do finally get to show off all the bikinis you binge-purchased through your quarantine boredom, these are the best to ways to glow up, no matter your shade of skin, whether you have uber-sensitive eczema-ridden skin, or just want J-Lo glow, smooth legs.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.
