Here is What Harry Styles “Watermelon Sugar” Record is Actually About
Harry Styles released “Watermelon Sugar” on May 15th, 2020. The horn and guitar-driven rock, funk-pop, and indie-pop songs still play on nearly every country’s radio station. It’s also almost impossible to escape the song while waking up and down the aisles of any retail store. The highly catchy bop has a vibe that excuses a summer anthem for years to come. But, what exactly does the song mean?
Harry Styles Explains Watermelon Sugar
Around the time that the song was released, Styles performed on NPR’s Tiny Desk series. Styles explained the origins of the hit record and what the meaning of the record was.
“It’s kind of about that initial I guess euphoria of when you start seeing someone or sleeping with someone or just like being around someone and you have that kind of excitement about them,” said Styles.
Furthermore, Harry shared that he was inspired to write the song after seeing the book In Watermelon Sugar by Richard Brautigan during a studio writing session.
Perhaps his explanation of the song was a “PG-13” version. And while Styles has yet to confirm or deny the song’s NSFW meaning, the internet did their best job investigating.
