Harry Styles's British-American Accent & Where Is He From In The UK?
12 May 2021, 11:27
Harry Styles's accent is constantly the topic of discussion as the British singer sounds more and more American- so where is he from?
Harry Styles, as we know, is a globetrotting superstar and he increasingly has the accent to prove it and fans constantly talk about the American twang to his usual northern English (Cheshire to be precise) accent.
As the 'Golden' singer has said, he feels most at home in his house in London, but, he spends so much of his life on the road and recorded loads of his second album, 'Fine Line' out in California where so many of his friends live.
He's just wrapped filming Don't Worry, Darling in LA alongside fellow Brit, Florence Pugh, which is further cause for concern for those who are #TeamBritishAccent.
All of this, over time, has altered the singer's accent subtly, but enough for fans to notice.
Most recently, the 26-year-old accepted his award from Variety for 'Hitmaker of the Year' and recorded a video to thank fans and his team who helped create his smash second album.
Harry said: "This is a very strange and proud moment for me and for everyone I made the record with... I don't think any of us walked into he studio trying to make 'hits'."
"I think we try to make good music that we like."
"Sometimes it connects, sometimes it doesn't and it's very cool to think that people liked some of the songs from the last album."
If you listen to the clip, it is the word 'and' that comes out pretty differently to everything else and it was pretty much all fans could talk about.
Some are mourning the growing loss of his British accent whilst other think the whole hybrid accent is kind of cute.
Then again, basically anything Haz does is considered cute.

This whole accent business began when Harry re-emerged from the shadows to introduce the world to his second album 'Fine Line' via a 50 minute interview with Zane Lowe, recorded from a studio in Malibu, California.
Aside from looking like a whole snack and delving into parts of Harry people had never heard before, no one could help but mention Harry's decidedly American accent throughout the whole chat.
Where is Harry Styles from?
Harry Styles was born in Redditch, Worcestershire, England but he moved to village of Holmes Chapel in Cheshire.
He now calls North London home but is flying all over the globe all the time, hence the blended accent.
