Harry Styles is back with a new single ahead of the release of his second studio album, and the video for his new song Lights Up is causing fans all over the world to lose their collective minds. Styles returned to Instagram on Thursday after a one-year absence to promote the release of the video with three steamy pics from the shoot.
The provocative video features a shirtless Styles in the middle of an orgy with both men and women as everyone parties hard and is obviously having a great time. The men and women beside Styles have their hands all over his glistening, tattooed body as he sings lyrics like: “What do you mean?/I’m sorry by the way/Never going back now/It’d be so sweet if things just stayed the same.”
The one moment that really had fans talking was when a man appears to lean in and kiss Styles’ neck as he leans back and enjoys it. Many fans are convinced that this was Styles’ way of coming out as bisexual.
In addition to the orgy, Styles also dangerously rides on the back of a motorcycle in the video and sits in the ocean at night while singing towards the sky.
As soon as the 25-year-old posted the video, fans flocked to social media to post their reactions. Not surprisingly, they absolutely loved it, with one fan writing, “I’ve never loved Harry Styles more than I do right now.”
One fan called Styles “definitely god,” while another joked that the former One Direction singer “is the only man allowed to have rights. Sorry, I don’t make the rules.”
Probably one of the best responses to the video was from Twitter user @AlmostCalledYou, who wrote, “I’ve just seen #LightsUp music video and Harry Styles let me tell you something – next thing I knew, I was pregnant” along with a pic of a woman sporting baby bump.
In the September Issue of Rolling Stone, Styles explained that his upcoming album is “all about having sex and feeling sad.” The Sign of The Times singer also admitted that while he was recording the album in a Malibu studio, he used magic mushrooms, laid down on the grass, and listened to Paul McCartney’s Ram in the sunshine.
“I was standing when we were doing mushrooms and I bit off the tip of my tongue,” said Styles. “So I was trying to sing with all this blood gushing out of my mouth. Mushrooms and Blood. Now there’s an album title!”
Harry Styles has not yet revealed the name of his second album or when it will be released. But, it is expected to drop before the end of 2019.
