Now here’s an anthem to really get behind, or in this case, in front of. Or maybe it’s best to start on top of it and get comfortable.
Out Australian pop star Troye Sivan has released his new single just in time for Pride season, and in a since-deleted tweet, revealed his inspiration: bottoming.
We hope this bottoming beat tops the chart. Sivan has proven to be an enduring talent and the new song, “Bloom,” is sincere, catchy and endlessly remixable for dance floors.
The singer had previously stated “it’s about flowers” in a promo video ahead of the release:
But when the song and lyric video dropped online, he added this comment on twitter:
He either had a change of heart or a frantic call from a publicist (we’re guessing the latter), and the tweet was soon deleted.
But not before the internet could have a field day, of course:

Listen to the full track below:
Here are some of the lyrics — interpret them how you will:
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
I bloom just for you
