Troye Sivan is creating the playlist for our summer. First, he released the banger “My, My, My!” that has given us new life on the dance floors of gay bars and queer spaces. Second, he released a sweet and simple ballad “The Good Side” that gives the listener all the emotions. Troye Sivan’s new song — “Bloom” — from his sophomore album is out, and that also makes us want to move our bodies. But, if you delve deeper beyond the lush melody and into the lyrics of the track, you find the secret ingredients to a power bottom anthem, a track we never knew we needed.
“Bloom” begins with, “Take a trip into my garden, I’ve got so much to show ya. The fountains and the waters, are begging just to know ya.”
More lyrics from “Bloom” include:
Tell me right before it goes down
Promise me you’ll
Hold my hand if I get scared now
Might tell you to
Take a second, baby, slow it down
You should know I, you should know I
(Yeah I bloom) I bloom just for you
But is it actually about that, or are we just thirsty mother-effers with too imagination on our hands?
In a new interview with Dazed and Confused, Sivan was asked if “Bloom” is meant to be a power anthem for bottoms. “It’s 100 percent about flowers! That’s all it is,” Sivan answered, playfully denying the assertion.
Regardless of what people call it, he just wants people to listen it, and he hopes it becomes the soundtracks of LGBTQ pride celebrations everywhere.
Sivan says, “Call it whatever you wanna call it. I wanna play that song at every Pride.”
