Harry Styles has magical powers. You've got to admit that you've secretly known this all along, but now we have further proof that the singer just operates on a totally different level than any of us mortals. Even though H doesn't have a Snapchat himself (and if he does, he's doing a wonderful job hiding it from fans), he's making a bit of Snap history right now: the app debuted a customized Snapchat filter just for him, and it plays the first ever sneak peek of his song "Woman" off his upcoming self-titled debut solo album.
A fan account called @TheHarryNews on Twitter managed to grab some videos of Harry's custom filter, so you can see it in action before you test it out on your new selfies.

The filter is actually really subtle – it doesn't have his name on it, and you may miss it while swiping through your filters the first time. The update account also shared a mini tutorial about how to use the lens yourself.

When you use the filter, a preview of Harry's song "Woman" plays, and your image gets covered in pretty pink waves and a pool of water. Nothing like this has ever been done before: even when celebs have gotten custom filters or promotional geotags, they haven't sneakily premiered music!

It's honestly a thing of beauty, and it makes for beautiful rose-tinted pics!
Update May 12.
Harry's mom tried out the filter for herself, and shared her video on Instagram. SO PERFECT.
