It has been a very exciting passed couple of hours for fans of South African/Australian YouTuber Troye Sivan.
His first single, “Happy Little Pill” from his upcoming album TRXYE dropped last night, and it is so freaking good!
The track has a certain element of light R&B. Combined with Troye’s smooth vocals, the song is definitely a crowd pleaser.
“I wrote this song during a bit of a rough time for someone super close to me, and for myself, and it still means as much to me as the day i wrote it, and i’m still as in love with it as the day i wrote it (which is rare for me!!). I couldn’t be prouder to be giving it to you guys today :’),” he wrote in the Tumblr post where he posted the Soundcloud link to the single.
I really love the songs instrumentals, especially the small bit of synth playing throughout the beginning and chorus that gives the song a breezy summer vibe. The song features some amazing imagery, in the hook before the chorus where he sings,
Tight skin, bodyguards
Gucci down the boulevard
Cocaine, dollar bills and…
Just pure brilliance.
This song will have to be our “happy little pill” until the release of TRXYE on Auguust 15th.
My question for Mr. Sivan is: will there be a music video to accompany this masterpiece?
Enjoy the song on Soundcloud.
