Just when you thought you heard this summer’s number-one hit “Watermelon Sugar” enough, British pop singer Anne-Marie spices up the song with a BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge cover. Harry Styles‘ original is a euphoric symphony of sounds, and Anne-Marie pairs it down. A cellist is a beautiful addition and the light shaker sound adds a nice flair. The cover holds on to the feeling of summer while even while the calendar slips into September.
In the interview after the performance, Anne-Marie said, “songs like [“Watermelon Sugar”] just make me feel like I’m on a beach when I’m inside. I appreciate that.” Her love of the song comes through in her ad-libbing squeals, shouts, and her smile that resonates through her singing. She even dressed up like a watermelon with pink hair and sweatshirt for the occasion.
