Charted: 7 6

Songfacts®:

  • "Adore You" finds Harry Styles singing of his complete and absolute devotion towards a girl.

    Oh honey
    I'd walk through fire for you
    Just let me adore you
    Like it's the only thing I'll ever do


    Harry told Radio.com the song is, "about that initial infatuation stage, that heavy feeling of just bliss.
    It's like a blissful, joyous connection with someone."
  • Walk in your rainbow paradise
    Strawberry lipstick state of mind
    I get so lost inside your eyes


    After giving us songs about kiwi and watermelon, Styles continues his fruit references by mentioning strawberries and later a lemon over ice in this song. It's also not the first time Harry has made a reference to strawberries. In "Watermelon Sugar," he sings: "Tastes like strawberries on a summer evenin'."
  • The groovy '80s-inspired track was written by Harry Styles with:

    Tyler Johnson, who was a key writer on Styles' 2017 self-titled debut album.

    Kid Harpoon, who has also worked with Florence + the Machine ("Shake It Out)," Calvin Harris ("Sweet Nothing"), and Haim ("Days Are Gone").

    Amy Allen, whose other credits include Halsey's "Without Me" and Selena Gomez's "Back to You."

    Tyler Johnson and Kid Harpoon produced the song.
  • The fantastical, seven-and-a-half-minute Dave Meyers-directed video is set on the fictional island of Eroda ("Adore" spelled backward) off the coast of England. A voiceover from fellow Columbia Records artist Rosalía tells us that everybody there frowns until Harry enters the world. He's blessed with a blindingly bright smile, which causes his fellow islanders to shun him. However, he befriends a lonely fish, who teaches Harry and the other islanders about love and community.
  • Harry Styles wrote this song, "Lights Up," and "Treat People With Kindness" in the final week of sessions for Fine Line in a burst of inspiration.
