Styles shared that “Watermelon Sugar” tidbit while starting to sing the Grammy-winning, chart-topping track from Fine Line with the audience’s help. “Watermelon Sugar” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2020, becoming Styles’ first song to do so.
Previously, when asked about the song’s sensual undertones — Apple Music’s Zane Lowe once made a reference to “the joys of mutually appreciated oral pleasure” — Styles had simply responded, “Is that what it’s about? I don’t know.”
His rescheduled Love on Tour trek has been one brimming with live music and memorable moments — like the time he helped a pregnant fan reveal the sex of her baby in front of the crowd earlier this week, and the time he gave some golden dating advice to a fan at a show in September.
