Harry Styles confirmed the meaning of his hit ‘Watermelon Sugar’ on stage Friday night (Oct. 1).
“It doesn’t really matter what it’s about,” Styles began at one of his Nashville concerts, attempting to leave things somewhat up for interpretation before stating that “Watermelon Sugar” is about “the sweetness of life … It’s also about the female orgasm.”
“But that’s totally different. It’s not really relevant,” he added. Delighted fans caught the “Watermelon Sugar” introduction on video at the show.
Styles shared that “Watermelon Sugar” tidbit while starting to sing the Grammy-winning, chart-topping track from Fine Line with the audience’s help. “Watermelon Sugar” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2020, becoming Styles’ first song to do so.
Previously, when asked about the song’s sensual undertones — Apple Music’s Zane Lowe once made a reference to “the joys of mutually appreciated oral pleasure” — Styles had simply responded, “Is that what it’s about? I don’t know.”
His rescheduled Love on Tour trek has been one brimming with live music and memorable moments — like the time he helped a pregnant fan reveal the sex of her baby in front of the crowd earlier this week, and the time he gave some golden dating advice to a fan at a show in September.
