Summer is officially upon us, and nothing gets us in the mood for late-night walks, vacations, and time spent with our toes in the sand like the right playlist — and the perfect summertime music video.

Nine years prior, Styles launched his career alongside A direction stealing our collective hearts while dancing on the beach for the music video accompanying the band’s breakthrough single, “What Makes You Beautiful.”
