Fans at Harry Styles first ever solo show at London's Garage Club Saturday night were treated to little bit of Kanye West, as covered by Styles during his life performance.
The former One Direction singer performed a rock version of Wests' "Ultralight Beam" and though fans at the show seemed to be digging it, the general consensus on Twitter was that it was just kind of decent.
The show was a surprise, only a few tickets were available just moments after the show was announced on Saturday. "Ultralight Beam" is a song from Wests' most recent release "The Life of Pablo." As many recall, West has a famous beef with Styles' ex Taylor Swift - so perhaps this was Styles' throwing subtle shade as to who's team he's on.
Of course, Styles' loyal fans loved the performance - but the rest of Twitter didn't really care for it.
Styles' released his self titled debut album on Friday, and it's been met with mostly positive reviews. The 10 track album is noted for its cool wave brit rock balladry, which Variety deems Harry as a "sensitive soul."
“If [the album] was a colour, it would be the baby blue of Jimi Hendrix's Fender Stratocaster or the soft pink of Mick Jagger's suit when he performed on “Top Of The Pops” in 1971. It's rock and it's roll, but it's also soft and sensitive...”
“Unlike Robbie Williams and Justin Timberlake before him, there's a deepened millennial sensibility to being a leading man. Harry is a sensitive soul; A post-Drake phenomenon; A serious pop performer with enviable vocal chops and a gifted ability to convey a song's emotional heft. He oozes class, ease and a sense of import without thrusting forth from the hips, or wreaking of a self-satisfied sense of boyband emancipation. Both respectful of his past and nervous for his future, “Harry Styles,” the album, looks both ways.”
