From old generations to new, Harry Styles is a household name. It is like icing on the cake when we get covers of our faves from our faves. Legends supporting legends is the secret of our happiness. Here are 10 of our faves who not only fan-girl over Harry Styles but also bless us with his covers and performing with him.
Harry Styles and Fleetwood Mac star Stevie Nicks share a beautiful friendship. They first encountered each other when the ‘Watermelon Sugar’ singer and his sister Gemma went to see Fleetwood Mac play in London. He bought her a carrot cake as it was Stevie’s birthday. It was the beginning of a pure friendship. Steve called Harry “the son she never had.”
Oh my God, this is the son I never had. So I adopted him…I love Harry, and I’m so happy Harry made a rock and roll record — he could have made a pop record and that would have been the easy way for him.
Stevie Nicks on Harry Styles
Not even just the once either, Stevie Nicks has performed with Harry Styles many times on stage. The power this duo holds when they perform together! During his debut album’s international tour, Styles surprised his Los Angeles crowd at the Troubadour with an appearance by Nicks in 2017. He exclaimed in joy, “I’m pretty sure that this was going to be up there with one of the best nights of my life.” The two performed ‘Two Ghosts,’ Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Landslide,’ and Nicks’ ‘Leather and Lace.’
Stevie Nicks and Harry Styles performed ‘Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around’ at the 2019 Hall of Fame Ceremony, which made us spellbound!
A performance of them we didn’t know we needed. We will be in cloud nine if we get a collaboration of them. Stevie Nicks, a living legend supporting another legend, is what we need in life.

Bow down to this best friendship we’ve ever seen. The pair first met in 2019 when they showed appreciation for each other’s music, and their friendship blossomed from there. Both of them covering each other’s songs gave us butterflies.
Lizzo Covers ‘Adore You’
Lizzo performed a cover of Style’s song ‘Adore You’ with a powerful voice which gave the tone an amazing new sound. The world went crazy with this cover from Lizzo.
Adding to this, how can we forget the iconic performance of Harry Styles and Lizzo duetting ‘Juice’ at The Fillmore Miami Beach. Lizzo surprised us with an appearance by Harry. Ah, the performance slapped so hard!
Oh, we are emotional while writing about Ed Sheeran‘s friendship with Harry Styles. They’ve known each other for 11 years!
We were in LA about three months ago and he had a day off. [Harry] spent two or three grand on Domino’s pizza and drove around giving them out to homeless people. That’s an amazing story. People write about Harry in a negative way because of his love life but he does stuff like that a lot. He’s a pretty genuine guy.
Ed Sheeran on Harry Styles
Ed talking about Harry makes us soft. In a recent Instagram live, a fan asked if he still catches up with the 1D boys and, he said, “Yep, I see Harry probably the most.” Ed also shared that Harry’s ‘Watermelon Sugar’ is his summer classic go-to.
I, like the rest of the world, adore ‘Watermelon Sugar’ but I did think ‘Falling’ was my favourite song from both those albums.
Olivia Rodrigo, the new pop sensation, broke the record for the most streams in a single day ever. Plus, she is a One Direction fan! She said, “I actually was the hugest One Direction fan when I was younger. This is sort of embarrassing, but I’m going to tell you anyway. I used to write One Direction fan fiction when I was in middle school. Just cheesy stuff like “Oh, Harry proposes to you” and stuff like that. I was that die-hard of a fan.” The High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star made sure to point out that she was always the subject of the fan fiction that Harry proposed, which is only fair enough.
She even wrote letters to Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, Little Mix, and more to show appreciation for her peers at the BRIT Awards 2021.
Little Mix covered Harry Styles’ ‘Falling’ at the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, and it was something we didn’t know we needed. You will listen to this cover on repeat as it sounds like four angels are singing. Over piano and guitar accompaniment, Little Mix showcased their vocal chemistry on their rendition with tender harmonies and taking solo turns on the verses. Imagine a collaboration with Little Mix and Harry Styles. Okay, we need to breathe.
We may be well into July, but Anne-Marie is still handing out berries and that summer feelin’. Anne is known for her fun and unique musical takes, and this is no exception. Anne delivered a mesmerizing cover of Harry’s ‘Watermelon Sugar.’ If you haven’t listened to this juicy cover, don’t waste time. Hop on YouTube and give it a listen. We have made it easy for you. Just check it out below and vibe in the summer feelin’ with Anne-Marie.
Hyunjin From Stray Kids
Korean legends being Harry Styles stans, is not new. Hyunjin from Stray Kids said that he almost cried when he first heard ‘Falling.’ He also pointed out that the high note part made his heart cry.
Check out Hyunjin’s cover of ‘Falling’ here.
Hwasa From Mamamoo
Hwasa, of the K-pop Mamamoo, has put her sweltering spin on Styles’ hit, ‘Watermelon Sugar.’ She has captured and built on the track with her sultry, moody vocals and a cozy music video at the singer’s apartment in South Korea. You’re missing something special if you haven’t listened to it. We hope you will be okay after watching this because the cover is hot!
Rita Ora is one of the closest friends of Harry Styles since his 1D days. She is still obsessed with him as much as you are. She said, “I mean, I and the whole music industry probably have a crush on [Harry]. Everyone’s acting like it’s a shock, but I’m sorry, I think I’m just the only one admitting it! I like his hair! I just think he’s funny and cute!” Well, we all agree.
Do you cry over the lyrics of ‘Just A Little Bit Of Your Heart?’ Cause we do. Harry wrote this at such an early age, and that makes us emotional. Chris Martin is just like us. He has performed this Harry-written track with Ariana Grande at the Global Citizens’ Festival. He stated, “This was written by the most handsome man in the world.” He is 1000% right.
Let’s sign a petition for these living legends to collaborate with Harry Styles and make life better. We are so happy to see so many pop stars who are in Harry Styles lane, showering Harry in the love he deserves.
