Harry Styles fans are convinced they've spotted a subtle reference to Olivia Wilde in his new single 'As It Was' that was released this Friday as part of his upcoming album Harry's House.
The single was accompanied by a stellar music video of Haz in a variety of bright red outfits, including an eye-catching jumpsuit, an oversized fur coat with leather gloves, and one rather revealing look involving nothing but a pair of boxers.
It's no surprise that fans are thrilled to hear new music from Harry, and have already gotten to work dissecting the song lyrics and music video scenes.
One particular line has stood out to fans as a clear reference to Harry's relationship with actress and director Olivia Wilde.
The singer was first linked to Olivia back in January 2021, following news that he had been cast in her directorial debut film Don't Worry Darling, and confirmation from Olivia that she had split from her partner Jason Sudeikis.
So, what's the lyric that has fans talking?
It comes in the bridge of Harry's song, and it goes like this:
"Go home, get ahead, light-speed internet/
I don't wanna talk about the way that it was/
Leave America, two kids follow her/
I don't wanna talk about who's doin' it first."
Jason and Olivia share two children together (Otis, 7, and Daisy, 5), and while Jason was in the UK working on his hit TV series Ted Lasso, Olivia has also been spotted in London with their children.
Coincidence? We think not!
Fans picked up on the reference almost immediately, and took to Twitter to discuss the lyrics.
One fan tweeted: "As it was has to be about olivia wilde 'leave america, two kids, follow her'??"
A second asked: "Are my ears deceiving me or is “as it was” abt olivia wilde…"
And a third wrote: "Furious that i looked up how many children olivia wilde has after hearing those lyrics and it’s 2 #asitwas".
A fourth fan, who was shocked to hear a reference to the actress so soon, commented: "I knew the album would be about Olivia Wilde but I wasn’t expecting a line about her kids right out the gate I wasn’t mentally prepared."
And another called out Olivia directly, telling her: "olivia wilde u r never allowed to complain about anything ever again."
