Harry Styles may have just hinted he's bisexual. 

The former One Direction bandmember drove fans crazy on Tuesday night (March 13) with the performance of a brand new song titled 'Medicine'. 

Styles, 24, performed the unreleased song in Paris for his solo tour Harry Styles: Live On Tour and fans have been calling the song a "bisexual anthem". 

In a fan-recorded video, Styles can be heard singing: "The boys and the girls are here / I mess around with them / And I'm OK 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." 

 

The song's lyrics sent fans into meltdowns with many calling Styles a "bisexual icon" and claiming the song was his version of "coming out". 

One user tweeted: "Harry Styles was an icon already, but now he's a bisexual icon. It's what we deserve." 

Another user wrote: "Can you believe Harry Styles wrote Medicine, the ultimate bisexual anthem?" 

Other fans tweeted to Styles, asking him to "verify" whether the song was his coming out or not.

 

Styles has yet to address the lyrical content of the song, but previously opened up to The Sun and revealed that he's never felt the need to define his sexuality publicly. 

He said: "I don't feel like it's something I've ever felt like I have to explain about myself." 

He's been an outspoken supporter for LGBT+ equality and was spotted walking around stage with the rainbow Pride flag during a 2015 One Direction gig. 

The star also argued that equality should be the norm in a past interview, saying: "Stuff like equality feels much more fundamental. I feel like everyone should be equal. That doesn't feel like politics to me."
