Well, This Maddie & Tae Cover of Harry Styles’ ‘Watermelon Sugar’ Is Everything

Maddie & Tae unveiled a pair of Spotify Singles on Wednesday (Aug. 5), including a genre-bending cover of Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar.”

Joining forces with rising pop trio Avenue Beat, the country duo transform the summery hit into a lowkey country ballad laden with harmonies. “Strawberries on a summer evenin’/ Baby, you’re the end of June/ I want your belly and that summer feelin’/ Getting washed away in you,” the ladies croon as the twang of a steel guitar echoes in the background.

Elsewhere on the release, Maddie and Tae offer a stripped-down take on their latest single “Everywhere I’m Goin’.” “He’s as cool as California/ Homegrown like they do it in Georgia/ With a heart as big as the Lone Star State,” they sing on the romantic jam before  handing over the reins on the second verse to Avenue Beat.

The track was originally released as a promo single for their 2020 sophomore album The Way It Feels, which also features singles “Friends Don’t” and “Die From a Broken Heart.”

Avenue Beat, meanwhile, continues to ride the momentum of their quarantine anthem, “F2020,” which went viral on TikTok and follows their self-titled 2019 EP as well as 2020 one-off singles “Thank You Anxiety” and “I Really Don’t Like Your Boyfriend.”
