Harry Styles sent fans into a frenzy on social media after performing his new track “Medicine” at a gig on Sunday in Basel, Switzerland.
The track features the lyrics
“The boys and the girls are here / I mess around with them / And I’m okay with it / I’m coming down / I figured out I kinda like it / And when I sleep I’m gonna dream of how you tasted.”
Styles also sounds like he’s saying “him” rather than “them” during the performance. Listen to part of it here:

Though he has been parading a rainbow and transgender flag on stage during concerts, Harry Styles was tight-lipped when asked about his sexuality in an interview with UK tabloid The Sun published in May.
“It’s weird for me — everyone should just be who they want to be,” said Styles. “It’s tough to justify somebody having to answer to someone else about stuff like that.”

When asked if he gives his sexual orientation a label, Styles said: “No, I’ve never felt the need to really. No.”
But he praised artists like Miley Cyrus, who do discuss it: “Being in a creative field, it’s important to be progressive. People doing stuff like that is great.”
Styles also told a French talk show that he sees LGBT equality as something that’s “fundamental” and not political.
In 2014, Styles told One Direction bandmate Niall Horan “Hey, don’t knock it ’til you try it,” when Horan was asked about dating men.
