You may or may not have heard of Troye Sivan. He is an Australian/South African singer who gained a lot of steam from Youtube. Not knowing his name will become increasingly unlikely after the masses hear his latest track “Dance to This.” He pairs up with the newly-engaged pop sensation Ariana Grande for this catchy love song. Ethereal guitars wail softly over the polyrhythmic beat. The vibe is light and feels perfect for a top-down cruise this summer. It’s smooth yet danceable.
Troye Sivan & Ariana Grande Harmonize On “Dance To This”
Their voices melt together the second time the pre-chorus comes around, harmonizing, ” Under the kitchen lights, you still look like dynamite. And I wanna end up on you, yeah.” The content is relatable, assuming that most listeners have already exchanged glances with lovers in their kitchens. The cover art reflects this vibe too, with a high exposure polaroid-like photo of the pair.
If you dig it, keep an eye out for the release of Sivan’s album Bloom on August 31st. Kim Petras will be joining him for his American Tour that is set to kick off in September.
If you stan Ariana, please note that her album Sweetener also drops in August. In the meantime, listen to her preceding collaboration with Pharrell is also available for your pleasure here.
