Let’s Talk About Bloom
After tweeting a flower emoji almost a month ago, the hype for the Australian singer/songwriter’s new song, Bloom, began, stirring fans into a frenzy. Finally, on May 3rd, Troye released his song and the fandom was not disappointed.
The day before the song was to be released, Troye uploaded a teaser onto YouTube and the fandom went crazy as five seconds of the song played after Troye sat on a bed and said “It's about flowers…” While we know this song is most definitely not about flowers, the teaser was enough to make fans go wild with anticipation, and rightly so. Those five seconds of the chorus were so catchy that everyone was singing it before the song even came out a day later.
As all of Troye songs have been called upon release, Bloom is being called a “new gay anthem” due to the intended audience being the LGBT community. Although the song is directed toward the LGBT community, the song is one the can be enjoyed by everyone no matter their sexuality.
The upbeat song is one that is able to be blasted on loop for hours at a time without getting tired of it, which is a good thing considering how often it’s no doubt going to be put on the radio within the next couple of months.
While fans have been a little weirded out by the accompanying video, which includes a 3-D version of Troye floating around, the fans have been good-hearted about it, joking that the animation in fact looks like the 90’s version of Pinocchio
While there is no set date for the release of Troye’s upcoming album, it is said to be coming out sometimes this summer. However, the rumored date of release is June 8th. Troye himself has said that he’s still putting last minute touches on all of the music, hoping that the fans like all of the songs on this album as much as his last album, Blue Neighbourhood.
I have to give this song a 10/10, not only because it’s so amazing, but also because it gives the LGBT community something so listen to and relate to because the song is directed toward that community.
I have no doubt in my mind that Troye’s upcoming album will be as epic as everyone is hoping it will be, considering the three singles from the album that have been released so far, and that Ariana Grande will be featured on one of the songs.
Starting out as a YouTuber, Troye Sivan’s growing fame is giving him the ability to use his platform to be a voice for the LGBT community, and he hasn’t failed yet.
