The Video Music Award for Song of the Summer went to Blackpink’s “How You Like That,” but Harry Styles fans didn’t necessarily agree with that choice. The singer’s fans believe “Watermelon Sugar” was robbed of the Moonman statue at Sunday’s VMAs in New York City.

Many Stylers pointed out the serious summertime vibes of “Watermelon Sugar.” Others were upset that the MTV awards show played the song but didn’t award it. A few even accused the VMAs of being rigged (though no evidence was given beyond Styles’ loss).

The “Adore You” singer had some intense competition in the category, which is decided by fans voting on social media. “Watermelon Sugar” was initially released on the December 2019 album “A Fine Line.” It was promoted as a single with a music video in May while other singles came out much closer to or during summer.

Taylor Swift’s “cardigan” was released in July while Miley Cyrus’ “Midnight Sky” as well as Cardi B. and Megan Thee Stallion’s rap duet “WAP” were released earlier this month. Blackpink’s “How You Like That” was released at the very beginning of summer on June 26.

It’s also worth noting that the VMAs had more than double the number on nominees in the Song of Summer category. The typical VMAs categories have about six nominees. The Song of Summer had 16 nominees. See the full list of Song of Summer nominees below:
