Troye Sivan is taking over the music world, going one step at a time, and slowly rising to the top. His EP Wild was released this month on the fourth, and it contains six original songs which are: “Wild,” “Bite,” “Fools,” “Ease,” “The Quiet,” and “DKLA.”
The twenty year old singer became famous on youtube at the age of seventeen, when he wrote and published his own song. He later signed to EMI Music Australia a week later after being approached by them. Now he has over 3.5 million subscribers on YouTube, and is famous on almost all social media.
One of his most famous videos on YouTube is his “coming out” video, where he told everyone that he was gay. In an article on i-D by Nick Levine, he talked about his music, he said, “I mean, all my songs are about boys, so yeah, I sing about boys! “Wild” is about that very first day or two of being in a relationship, just waking up and, like, not wanting to text him for a couple of hours so you don't seem too keen -- flirting basically!” He is one of the few singers that show that it’s okay to be gay in his songs and music videos.
Sivan actually has a trilogy of music videos for his EP Wild called “Blue Neighborhood.” Parts one and two of this trilogy have already been created and released on youtube. In this trilogy, he expresses the highlights and struggles of being gay and falling in love.
His music has touched the hearts of many of his fans, with his moving lyrics and melodies. “Well I think that Troye Sivan's music is powerful. I think that all his songs have deep meanings and his talent is shown throughout his music. As time passes his music gets better and he will accomplish a lot with it,” said Luz Gomez.
With his lyrical ambient electronic dance-pop style of music, he’s making his way to the top of the music business, and he’s one of the few people to cross over from being a youtuber to a traditional music artist. Although he’s signed to a big music studio, he hasn’t forgotten the people that supported him on YouTube, and still uploads when possible. You can check out his EP’s: The June Haverly, TRXYE, and Wild on YouTube, so go and support him.
