Harry Styles slays with his surprise cover of Kanye’s ‘Ultralight Beam’


Harry Styles likes The Life of Pablo, apparently.

The One Direction heartthrob-turned-solo star celebrated his first album on Saturday with an intimate London performance. Among the new material Styles let loose with was an unexpected cover: “Ultralight Beam,” off of Kanye West’s latest album.

The gospel-flavored original features West with The-Dream, Kelly Price, Kirk Franklin, and Chance the Rapper. Styles’ cover replaces the choir with the mournful wail of a reverb-heavy guitar, and it’s a perfect complement to the singer’s alt-rock flavor.

Listen to an extended clip, captured by The Sun‘s Howell Davies, and hear it for yourself.

And for contrast, here’s the original Yeezy cut. It’s got quite a different sound.

The May 13 performance served as both an album release party — it dropped on May 12 — and a prelude to Styles’ upcoming world tour this fall. 

All of which is to say: this probably won’t be the last time you hear that cover.
