Harry Styles serves up brand new single 'Watermelon Sugar' after smashing it on SNL 🍉

UPDATED NOV. 27, 2019: Harry Styles' new single, WATERMELON SUGARhas to-date sold over 100,000 units in the US alone. 

- ENDS -


Harry Styles made his debut as a host on SNL last night (November 16).

The charismatic superstar brought his infamous touch to the show, taking it to the next level by transforming it into a vehicle for his applausible comedic timing. He acted in a vast array of sketches in which he played different characters from a social media manager at Sara Lee, to an irresponsible old pilot.

One of the sketches (watch below) showed Aidy Bryant playing a single woman with a pet chihuahua called Doug. The dog was a partner replacement since Aidy's boyfriend had left her. In the sketch, Doug turned into Styles, complete with the same doggy jumper the tiny pet wore, and the love birds sang a duet together. 

In another sketch, good-humored Styles played a naive British intern arriving at his new post and offering to buy his colleague all the chicken sandwiches for lunch whilst they looked on aghast (watch below).

While pulling double duty as both the host and musical guest on SNL, the 25-year-old also performed two songs from his upcoming sophomore album, Fine Line. The tracks were Lights Up, and Watermelon Sugar, which he then released as a single after the show kicked-off. 

In the first few verses of Watermelon Sugar, Styles sings the lyrics:

"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

"Breathe me in, breathe me out
I don't know if I could ever go without
I'm just thinking out loud
I don't know if I could ever go without".

Last night's episode with the English star is sure to go down in history as one of the season's best-ever.

SNL airs live coast-to-coast Saturdays at 11:30pm ET & 8:30pm PT on NBC.

Styles' highly anticipated second solo album Fine Line is set for release on December 13.

Watermelon Sugar is the second single off the album.

Tickets for Harry Styles' global Love On Tour go on general sale next week on November 22. Check ticket availability HERE.
