Question about this...

Harry Styles has made history as the only person ever to have his first album, single and movie debut at number one.

The One Direction star's self-titled debut solo album and single 'Sign of the Times' topped the US Billboard charts when they were released earlier this year, while movie 'Dunkirk' - in which he plays a young soldier - topped the US box office this month.

ET Canada reports that Harry's achievement is the first of its kind.

Does Purple Rain album and movie as well When Doves Cry single being at number in the same year not count?

They are stretching things.
He's been around forever but it's his debut album as a solo performer.
It's not "his film" unlike PR.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

Are they trying to say that all debuted at number 1? If so, Prince did not do this. Purple Rain the movie, the album, and Let’s Go Crazy were all number 1 at the same time, but the album and single did not debut at number 1(not sure about the movie).

Yes, seems like that's what they are saying.

Well, Prince's first album and single were For You and Soft & Wet, which didn't debut at number one. So I guess Harry Styles "wins".
