Harry Styles’s ‘Watermelon Sugar’ Video Is the Wet, Hot Summer We Deserved

Harry Styles has shared the video for his latest single 'Watermelon Sugar' – watch it below. The song, produced by Thomas Hull and Tyler Johnson, featured on the former One Direction singer's 2019 album 'Fine Line'. In a four-star review, NME's Hannah Mylrea called Styles' second album "a total joy," adding that it's an "elegant combination of the ex-boybander's influences, slick modern pop and his own roguish charm." On 'Watermelon Sugar', Styles compares his love interest to a night in June, singing: "Strawberries/ On a summer evening/ Baby, you're the end of June/ I want your belly/ And that summer feeling/ Getting washed away in you/ Breathe me in/ Breathe me out/ I don't know if I could ever go without." In the song's video Styles throws a beach party with a group of women, who can all be seen eating watermelon throughout. He dedicates the Bradley & Pablo-directed visual to "touching." Watch it below. Meanwhile, Harry Styles has become the latest artist to postpone their tour as the coronavirus pandemic continues across the globe.

The 'Fine Line' singer was set to begin his European tour in Birmingham next month, before following it with dates in Sheffield, Dublin, London, Manchester and Glasgow. Advertisement But he has now announced that the European leg of the tour will be pushed back to February and March 2021, in order to prevent the spread of the virus. Harry Styles released the music video for his track "Watermelon Sugar," which appears on his 2019 album titled "Fine Line." The video has references to Styles' previous music videos, plus nods to accessories he's worn in the past. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Harry Styles released the music video for "Watermelon Sugar," the upbeat track from his 2019 sophomore album titled "Fine Line." The 26-year-old singer dropped the video on Monday and it featured him surrounded by people on a beach, who are dancing, eating plenty of watermelons, and touching each others' bodies.

In a 2019 interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe, Styles described "Fine Line" as a very "open" record and said that he doesn't like to explain the meanings of his songs. He also played coy when Lowe asked if "Watermelon Sugar" is about "the joys of mutually appreciated oral pleasure." Here are all the details, references, and Easter eggs you might have missed in his new music video. The sun is shining, the waves are crashing, and the sand feels warm underneath your feet. Suddenly, a man appears and you realize — it's Harry Styles. It feels like a dream, but it's not: It's actually the official music video for "Watermelon Sugar." Long-awaited but arriving in perfect time for summer, Harry Styles has finally released the music video to his fourth Fine Line single.

The upbeat, windows-down track melted frozen hearts when it dropped in the dead of November, both because it brought summer to winter and because of its rumored double meaning. Styles can deny that the song is about oral sex, but the video's erotic watermelon chomping begs to differ. Dedicated to "touching," the "Watermelon Sugar" video is an ode to the summer we deserved. The teaser was a minute staring at an impeccably dressed table for one where a glass of OJ sits waiting for Styles and a big ol' slice of watermelon to appear. Bon appetít!

"Watermelon Sugar" graced Styles's sophomore album, Fine Line, along with singles "Adore You," "Lights Up," and "Falling." Most of us won't know a summer 2020 spent on the beach, but we will know every second of this music video. And, really, in a coronavirus-plagued world, which is better for the greater good?

Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber have teamed up, Charli XCX just released her lockdown album, Lady Gaga's Chromatica drops in less than two weeks and it's a matter of days until The 1975's latest offering lands.

All that could really top it off is a Harry Styles drop, tbh. And while we aren't getting new music anytime soon (unless he does a Beyoncé circa 2013), the Cheshire-born singer has dropped the video for Fine Line track "Watermelon Sugar". Having been teased through the Sony-linked and approved ijustwannatasteit.com over the weekend, the video (which, to us, takes on the feel of a Jacquemus campaign) has now aired. And if you are not fussed about seeing Styles move and shake with a watermelon on a beach, at least use the video as inspiration for your summer wardrobe. Following on from the gender-bending looks in the "Falling" music video, "Watermelon Sugar" serves up totally wearable looks you can get going with right now. First up we have Styles in a loose and baggy 'fit that would lend itself to those upcoming early mid-June evenings when the sun sets and the chill begins. Rocking a pair of Gucci brown slacks, blue shades from The Contemporary Wardrobe (that's the hangout of choice for celebs such as Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian West) and a knitted vest and vintage necklaces from the National Theatre Archive, it's a lesson in transitional dressing. His second and third looks are, again, made for summer warmth that doesn't call for a pair of shorts, consisting instead of an ab-flashing cropped knit, breathable Kurt Cobain-style ripped jeans and a floral scarf, all courtesy of Gucci, and a knitted vest and muti-coloured shirt (both again by The Contemporary Wardrobe), bold Gucci scarlet trousers and heart-shaped sunglasses from the National Theatre Archive. But it's his final look that gives even Armie Hammer's short shorts a run for their summer-style money. Comprising a bold, yellow, flowery shirt from Bode (his and Zayn Malik's go-to brand) and a pair of vintage yellow side-stripe shorts, this is how to dress for 25C-plus heat. And if you aren't ready to go full Styles (we admit, those wide-legged slacks and cropped numbers can be daunting), then, like the singer, who sports four pairs, at least give your sunglasses game a shake up this summer.
