History of creation: background and prerequisites

In 2020 Harry explained the origin of the hit "Watermelon Sugar." And what's really behind the song... As it turns out, it was one of the few songs that took the longest to write... By the way: Styles embarked on "Watermelon Sugar" in 2017.So he spent an average of two years on it! According to Harry, there were times when he didn't like Watermelon Sugar at all:

"We all really liked this track at first, but then I hated it for a really long time. I went back to it over and over again trying to get something perfect..." - Styles admitted.

The guy also revealed that the title of the song was chosen completely by chance! Allegedly he was inspired by a book with the same name in the room where he recorded this track.....

Love, sadness, inspiration.....

However, far from the title getting fans so excited, it was worth the "Watermelon Sugar." After all this time, the song about "Watermelon Sugar" still keeps fans guessing who the lyrics are really about... There are a lot of assumptions - from the singer's ex-girlfriends to banned substances! Of course - the fans' imagination Harry Styles very rich... However... does the cheeky title matter more in reality?

Let's start with the fact that this is the first time Styles has made his debut with "Watermelon Sugar." late 2019, weeks before the release of his second album Fine Line. By the way: the record pleased with great summer hits such as "Falling," "Lights Up," "Adore You." and others! However, it was "Watermelon Sugar" that had everyone's attention... Remarkably, the song remained a hit until 2021. Time and time again, people wondered, "Who inspired the singer to write this audacious song...?".

The most adequate assumption was the breakup of the singer's relationship with a French model named Camille Rowe... According to the producer. Kid HarpoonDuring the recording of the album, Harry was "mentally broken". Then he influenced him, persuaded him to express all his feelings in the lyrics... So Styles and he did. And yes: this is why Rowe, and her and Harry's relationship, has been the subject of much speculation throughout the album... A recording of the supermodel's voice is even included on the track "Cherry."and a fan spotted a croissant on the table in the "Watermelon Sugar" video, which fans thought was a hint at her.

Well: actually, "Watermelon Sugar." has a lighter and less vulgar meaning than the singer's fans had assumed... Here's what the singer himself said Harry:

"It's about that wonderful feeling you get when you first start dating someone... It's kind of like that initial euphoria when you start spending your time with someone, feeling an incredible excitement throughout your body..."

A stunning music video for "Watermelon Sugar."seems to fit perfectly with the theory behind the meaning of the song.....

The clip appeared on the official YouTube channel Stiles 18 May 2020. By the end of September 2021, the video had racked up more than 260 million views... The director of this summer masterpiece was Bradley & Pablo. Filming took place in Malibu, California in January 2020. According to Stiles himself, the inspiration came from Paul McCartney, or rather his style 1960-х years... That's why some of the shots have a charming vintage style.

Curiously, the message at the very beginning of the clip - "This video is about touch" - was added for a reason! The team Bradley & Pablo Were concerned that Columbia Records wouldn't release the video because it seemed insensitive. To remedy that, that's what they added this gentle message.....

One last thing

Some seemed to feel the sexy vibes immediately, while others remained blissfully unaware and continued to enjoy the new summer hit from the Harry Styles... Although, perhaps Harry is right? After all, why reveal the meaning? Songwriting is always a very personal process, and sometimes it's more fun and interesting to leave things open to interpretation...
