Is Harry Style's new song 'Cherry' about his ex Camille Rowe? There's no shortage of clues on the track
The singer's latest album 'Fine Line' that was released on December 13 has heartbreak written all over it
Looks like Harry Styles let his feelings show on this one.
The singer's latest album 'Fine Line' that was released on December 13 has heartbreak written all over it, and it looks like it's about ex Camille Rowe.
On 'Cherry', a track from his album, he sings, "I just miss your accent and your friends/Did you know I still talk to them?" Now, even if the accent clue didn't spell it out for you, the next part of the track definitely points to Rowe, the French American model.
He doesn't spell it out, but a woman starts speaking in the song through a voicemail in French: "Coucou! Tu dors? Oh, j’suis désolé… Bah non… Nan c’est pas marrant" she says, which translates to "Hello! Are you asleep?” Oh, I’m sorry…Well, no… No, it’s not important... Well… We went to the beach and we... Perfect! Then…", according to Genius.
The rest of the song also shows a different side of Styles. "Don’t you call him ‘baby’/We’re not talking lately/Don’t you call him what you used to call me" he sings.
Styles has not confirmed that it is Rowe on the voicemail but has admitted using a personal sound bite on the album.
The couple broke up in 2018, exactly after a year of dating each other.
Twitter fans were super emotional about the song and the feature.
"Cherry is so fucking emotional and real got me feeling like I broke up with Camille Rowe me damn self holy shit," one fan said, while another tweeted, "The song is called Cherry because she used to call him ‘Darling’ in French, aka: 'Chérie' I’m not ok"
Styles did confirm, according to Billboard, that the song was about an ex.
Speaking to Zane Lowe of Apple Music’s Beats 1, he said, "We're friends and stuff, so I asked her if it was okay. I think she liked it," he said, without mentioning Rowe. He further added that the track "needed it" and he wanted it to be true to the "moment that I wrote it, and how I was feeling then [which was] not great."
"It’s so pathetic in a way. The night that I wrote it, I was saying that I was feeling a lot of pressure because the last record wasn’t a radio record. And I was like, ‘I feel like this record has to be really big. So I feel like I need to make certain songs.’ And Tyler [Johnson, producer] just said to me, ‘You just have to make the record that you want to make right now.’ So then we stayed up and wrote ‘Cherry’ that night," he said.
