And just when we thought nothing could save 2020, Mr. Harry Styles swoops in on his “Golden” horse and saves the day! (Or in this case, the year)

As October comes to an end, the perfect gentleman he is, Harry Styles decided to bestow upon us a gift. And that is the music video of the fifth single from his “Fine Line” album, by the name “Golden.” This is also his first music video ever since “Watermelon Sugar” released and immediately took over every chart.
Other radio hits by Harry Styles from the “Fine Line” album include, “Adore You,” and “Falling.”
The teaser for the “Golden” music video was released on Sunday. It immediately got millions of views in the following hours before the actual music video was released. Then again, after what happened with “Watermelon Sugar” can you really expect anything less from Mr. Harry Styles?
Harry Styles’ New Music Video “Golden”
Only 30 minutes after the music video was dropped, it became the top trend on Twitter in the U.S. Many fans started using the hashtag to upload reactions to the music video.
“Golden” features Harry Styles running through empty mountain streets and striking poses and driving around. It might be the best rom-com movie (that is not a movie) to have been released. I personally love the cinematic shots of him driving his car wearing his shiny gloves and in the water. The water shots remind me of his previous single “Falling” which is a close favorite, after “Watermelon Sugar.”
The lyrics of “Golden” are mostly about him not wanting to feel lonely. However, with the kind of video he’s made, he should not have to worry about it. There are millions of girls waiting for him to give them a chance to help with his loneliness.
However, if when watching the video, you also felt an overwhelming sense of joy, then you are not crazy. It is what Harry envisioned for the music video of “Golden” to feel like, particularly with how he looked with tousled hair.
“It’s one of the first songs when I was making the album and it’s always been a source of joy for me.”
He also said that is the kind of video he wanted to make. A video that “encapsulated” how he felt when he made the song.
“I’d like to think it will maybe cheer a couple of people up. Cheered me up,” Harry continued.
