After teasing us with irresistible dancefloor candy like “My My My” and his Ariana Grande collaboration “Dance to This,” Troye Sivan’s full Bloom album is finally here. To dissect Sivan’s lyrical evolution and chill synth-pop, Billboard Pride Editor Patrick Crowley joins Joe Lynch and Lyndsey Havens to hone in on tracks like the fruit-filled “Plum” and the cig-centric “Lucky Strike.”
We also discuss Twenty One Pilots’ catchiest new single from their new album, “My Blood,” and the Struts’ revamped version of “Body Talks” featuring Kesha in ferocious garage rock mode.
In the realm of Dua Lipa/TLC tell-the-boy-off songs, we chat Nina Nesbitt’s “Loyal to Me,” and in adjacent territory we look at the heartbreaking “Robert” from twin sister folk duo Fionn. Plus: debut single “Flowerbomb” from Detroit’s Siena Liggins, who recently spoke to Billboard via FaceTime because of her alleged “resting bitch voice.”
