We finally got her ladies and gents. She’s here and she’s a bop! “Watermelon Sugar” is serving us summer in winter in the most Harry Styles fashion.
“Watermelon Sugar” gives us a very specific vibe. Now, imagine this:
It’s summer break, end of June specifically and you and your friends went on a week long vacation to Miami/Jamaica or somewhere along those lines. You meet this mysterious guy that you can’t help but swoon for, but you’re scared to really do anything because you’re only there for a week. He’s trying to win you over, to prove it’ll be worth it. He begs you to go on just one date and you agree. It’s sunset and he takes you dancing to this place only locals know of. You realize you cannot resist his charm and after slight resistance you dance with him as “Watermelon Sugar” starts playing. From there you have your dance montage signifying that despite your resistance you’re falling for him. Ending the dance with a twirl into his arms ending in an almost kiss with intense eyeing each other.
Okay so now that our small fanfic AU moment is over…
Right before his double duty debut on SNL last night, Harry Styles dropped “Watermelon Sugar” and well… You know the deal. Twitter. Blew. Up.
We knew we were going to hear the song no matter what last night, becasue he was set to perform it live for one of his two performances. What we didn’t expect was the studio version dropping literally right before SNL went live.
Let’s let Twitter sum up some of our feelings.
Listen to “Watermelon Sugar” here.
