Harry Styles is bringing an upbeat message to the start of 2021 with his video for “Treat People With Kindness,” released Friday. And it stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
The official video, filmed in black-and-white with an old Hollywood vibe, features Styles performing in a nightclub. “Fleabag” actress and creator Waller-Bridge enters the club and sits down at a table. Styles beckons her to the stage. Once together, the pair dances a number together while dressed in matching sequined, argyle vests and tuxedo pants.
“Treat People With Kindness” is from Styles’ 2019 album “Fine Lines.” USA TODAY’s Patrick Ryan called the album “confident and refreshing” and wrote that the album’s arrival late last year reconfirmed the One Direction star’s “status as a bona fide rock star.” The song’s lyrics are welcome after a tough year: “Maybe we can / Find a place to feel good / And we can treat people with kindness.”
