    I Just Learned What "Watermelon Sugar" Means And I'll Never Hear Harry Styles' Song The Same

    "The joys of mutually appreciated oral pleasure."

    If you know me, you know Harry Styles' new single, "Watermelon Sugar," is my JAM.

    Disney

    Seriously, I've probably listened to it about 756,000 times by now.

    So color me surprised when I learned that fans are convinced the song is 100% about oral sex.

    Here are just a few of the tweets people have sent ever since the song dropped:

    I hope the girl that Harry sings about eating out in watermelon sugar is having a good day today :)

    This fan looked up the term "Watermelon Sugar" on UrbanDictionary.com, which translates to, ahem, "male precum while giving oral sex."

    wait..... is watermelon sugar about suckin dick 😳

    Some harries: WATERMELON SUGAR IS ABOUT SUCKING DICK!!! Some other harries: WATERMELON SUGAR IS ABOUT EATING PUSSY!!! hey... WHY NOT BOTH

    Most thought it was pretty obvious:

    do ppl really not know watermelon sugar is about oral sex,,,,,

    im gonna be so loud but, watermelon sugar is about a very intimate oral sex.

    And others, like me, felt left behind:

    so watermelon sugar is about eating p*ssy and none of yall told me

    Upon my 756,001 listen this morning, lyrics like, "I just wanna taste it" and "I want your belly and that summer feelin'" stuck out even more.

    I thought, Maybe, just maaaaaybe, the song IS about oral sex.

    How did this slip by me?

    But then I saw a recent interview Harry did with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe and his response, when asked about the meaning of the song, threw me off:

    "'Watermelon Sugar' is out. Everyone's kinda figured out what it's about: the joys of mutually appreciated oral pleasure," Zane said.

    Apple Music

    "Is that what it's about? I don't know," Harry shot back with a sly smile.

    Apple Music

    And now I'm confused!!!!

    Disney

    While the singer never confirmed those fan theories, he did agree with Zane about "[leaving] it open to interpretation."

    Disney

    So that's that. What do you think? Take a listen to the song and tell me what you think it's about in the comments.
