Harry Styles recently hit the road for Love on Tour, and during his concert stop in Nashville, the pop star definitely dispelled some rumors about one of his biggest hits. Styles released “Watermelon Sugar” in 2019 as a single from his acclaimed album Fine Line and the music video that followed left no doubt what “really tastes like strawberries”. While Styles has played shyly in the past on the meaning of the lyrics, he left little room for the imagination of the Nashville audience.
“This song speaks,” Styles began. “It doesn’t matter what it is. It’s about, uh, the sweetness of life. ” However, he decided to give a more explicit answer immediately afterwards. “It’s about female orgasm too, but it’s totally different,” Styles joked as fans lost their minds. “It’s not really relevant.”
Styles was previously asked about the song’s significance in a 2019 interview with Beats 1 DJ Zane Lowe, who said “Watermelon Sugar,” which is at this point, and everyone kind of got it on. what it is, ”before guessing it was about“ the joys of mutually enjoyed oral pleasure ”. Styles replied, “Is that what it is? I do not know.” Lowe then said “That’s what everyone says. It’s always good to leave that open for interpretation ”, to which Styles agreed.
Styles also commented on the significance during his NPR Tiny Desk gig, saying “It’s kind of about that first euphoria I guess when you start seeing someone or sleeping with someone or just like being with someone and you have that kind of excitement about them. ”
Styles made headlines this year after starting an affair with his Don’t Worry Darling director Olivia Wilde. Wilde was previously engaged to Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis. “Harry and Olivia had chemistry almost instantly on set,” an insider told Us Weekly. “It was only a matter of time before they got together.” Although sources close to the couple have claimed that they had long broken up by the time Wilde and Styles reunited, the timeline remains a bit hazy.
