"Watermelon Sugar" is a scrumptious single by singer-songwriter Harry Styles as he serenades listeners with his urge to touch love, whatever form it may take.
With a disco vibe to it, the music video opens with the placard "this video is dedicated to touching."
"I want your belly and that summer feelin'. I don't know if I could ever go without, watermelon sugar high," the song goes.
Styles, on the set of NPR Tiny Desk Concert, said that the song is initially about the "euphoria of when you start seeing someone, you start sleeping with someone or just being around someone and you have that excitement about them."
The track is included in Styles' sophomore album, Fine Line, where it was released to fans without any warning as he performed it live on Saturday Night Live.
Meanwhile, in a video with Capital FM, Styles revealed that "Watermelon Sugar" was written within a day but was only fully completed after a year.
"Well the hardest song to finish was 'Watermelon Sugar'. We wrote it in a day and then it took about a year to finish…Which was very frustrating but uh, happy with it now," he said.
Following its massive success "Watermelon Sugar" was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in January 2020; and on March 2021, Styles received his first-ever Grammy Award for "Best Pop Solo Performance".
