Harry Styles' vibrant feel-good hit "Watermelon Sugar" has the internet captivated. The song is about more than just the fruit, though, and he's finally confirmed that it's actually about a pretty NSFW subject. The former 1D singer revealed the true meaning behind the song during a live performance and it's sure to make listeners go wild.
Watermelon Sugar is a sweet, summer-esque track that's been on people's playlists since it first dropped in November 2019. It became the lead single from his second solo album Fine Line and gave him his very first Grammy Award in March 2021 for Best Pop Solo Performance. The song was accompanied by a sultry video in May 2020 that had Styles lounging on the beach with a group of bikini-clad women feeding him slices of the juicy fruit. The video perfectly captured the vibe of the song, and it's easy to see why people have been so drawn to it.
The song's lyrics include lines like, "Tastes just like strawberries on a summer evenin'/And it's got that ripe summer feeling" and, "It tastes like a girl orgasm." It's no wonder that fans were quick to connect the dots between this suggestive innuendo and oral sex. Apple Music's Zane Lowe even asked the singer about it during a podcast interview, and that's when Styles revealed that the song was inspired by Richard Brautigan's novel In Watermelon Sugar.
At a concert on Friday, the "Watermelon Sugar" performer cheekily told a Nashville audience that the song was about more than just fruit. He said, "It's about female orgasm," which made everyone in the room go crazy. This is the first time that Styles has spoken about the hidden sexual meaning behind his catchy hit, and it's sure to change the way you look at watermelon forever.
