From the Album
• Styles wrote the song with Mitch Rowland and its producers Tyler Johnson and Kid Harpoon. They were inspired by the American novel In Watermelon Sugar (1968) by Richard Brautigan.
• Using the metaphor of watermelon sugar to describe a sexual encounter, the song is about the initial excitement of when one first starts seeing someone. It took Styles about a year to finish.

It peaked at number fifty-four after the release of Fine Line and officially left the chart the following month. On 8 May 2020, it was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. After being released as a single, "Watermelon Sugar" re-entered the chart in May at number sixty-four and has so far reached a new peak of nineteen; giving Styles' his fourth top-twenty single in the US, and third from Fine Line.
