Harry Styles is the ultimate ring leader.

The singer joined the circus in his new music video for "Daylight" July 19. In the video, Harry donned a black jumpsuit with white bows down the front as he hangs out with circus performers at the fairgrounds. But the adventures don't stop there: He juggles while acrobats perform behind him, comes face-to-face with a clown and narrowly avoids being hit by a knife thrower.

At one point, a circus performer donning a devil costume chucks knives at the board that Harry is strategically tied to. And those aren't the only tricks up the 29-year-old's sleeve. Harry also rides a unicycle and has the time of his life in front of funhouse mirrors, before putting on a yellow costume with feathered wings and soaring through the sky.

The "Watermelon Sugar" artist tops off the topsy-turvy "Daylight" video by walking on a tightrope high in the sky and ride a majestical horse in the last scene of the video.

"Daylight," the track from Harry's House, the Grammy winner's third studio album, released in May 2022, seems to be a fond reflection in a past relationship. Amid an upbeat instrumentals, Harry sings sentimental lyrics like "If I was a bluebird, I would fly to you/ You'd be the spoon/ Dip you in honey so I could be sticking to you," and "Daylight, you got me cursing the daylight."

But despite the good memories, he makes it clear a reconciliation isn't in the cards, noting in the last verse, "You ain't got time for me right now."

And while the music video is sure to have "Daylight" at the top of fans' minds, those who attended his Love on Tour shows, which kicked off in September 2021, were able to see him perform the track live. One fan who unfortunately couldn't catch the show in person?


Ukrainian tennis star Elina Monfils who had to give away her tickets to his stop in Vienna, Austria, amid the Wimbledon quarterfinals. (She ultimately lost during the July 13 game). However, the former One Direction member personally invited her to come to another show.

"Congratulations!" Harry commented under the Wimbledon Instagram post July 8 post about Elina missing out on the show. "We have four shows to go, you're welcome at any of them. Good luck with the rest of the tournament. H."

The global Love on Tour comes to a close at the end of July, after nearly two years. As for which stops fans may spot Elina in attendance at? Well, after two shows in Spain and one in Lisbon, Portugal, Harry is bringing it home with a performance in Italy on July 22.
