Harry Styles dropped the music video for his “Watermelon Sugar” single and the opening frame says, “This video is dedicated to touching.”
The video was filmed on a Malibu beach back in January and Styles sits oceanside as beautiful women surround him in the sand while he sings, “Tastes like strawberries on a summer evenin’ / And it sounds just like a song / I want more berries and that summer feelin’ / It’s so wonderful and warm.”
The video has hints to Elton John’s 1983 video for “I’m Still Standing,” which was also set on a beach and Styles wears blue-tinted sunglasses which are a classic for Elton John. In the second half of the video, Styles dances atop a Pacific Ocean overlook before jumping into the water.
“Watermelon Sugar” debuted on Saturday Night Live in November and it’s his fourth single from his second full-length album, The Fine Line. This album has sold 1.2 million units since it’s release in December and “Adore You” reached No. 1 on the Top 40 and Hot AC radio formats. “Watermelon Sugar” was certified platinum by RIAA earlier this month.
