Singer-songwriter Troye Sivan has seemingly confirmed fan speculation that his new song is all about gay sex.
Troye unveiled the new track “Bloom” and its lyric video this week and the singer-songwriter wrote a tweet using the hashtag #BopsBoutBottoming.
The singer quickly deleted the tweet but fans took screenshots and tweeted in a frenzy sending both the song and the hashtag #BopsBoutBottoming trending on the social network.
Asked by Dazed last month if that was, in fact, the true meaning behind the song, Troye coyly replied, “It’s 100 per cent about flowers! That’s all it is.
“Call it whatever you wanna call it. I wanna play that song at every Pride.
“There’s almost a radicalism in just truth, you know? The most radical thing that I can do is share how happy I am.”
Lyrics in the song include, “Take a trip into my garden / I’ve got so much to show you.”
Troye Sivan continues, “It’s true, babe / I’ve been saving this for you / 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 bloom, I bloom just for you.”
