    Well, there's a line in the tune that appears to be a direct reference to Olivia Wilde. Of course, Harry and Olivia have been together for well over a year now — even if they have kept things exceptionally on the down-low.

    The lyric in question comes during the song's bridge, when Harry sings, "Leave America, two kids follow her."

    Go home, get ahead, light-speed internet/ I don't wanna talk about the way it was/ Leave America, two kids follow her/I don't wanna talk about who's doin' it first

    For one, Olivia does have two kids with her ex, Jason Sudeikis — Otis, 7, and Daisy, 5.

    Plus, in Olivia's own words, she lives "between LA and London" — so the whole "leave America" line tracks.

    There's also the child's voice at the opening of the song, which may have you thinking, "Hey, is that one of Olivia's kids?" However, per Entertainment Weekly, the voice actually belongs to Harry's 5-year-old goddaughter.
