Troye Sivan’s New Song, ‘Bloom’, Is About Bottoming

Troye Sivan’s New Song, ‘Bloom’, Is About Bottoming

Troye Sivan has never strayed away from the queer aesthetics in his music videos. The video for Youth featured young gay love soaked in purple lighting, and his most recent visual accompaniment for My My My! was heavily inspired by cruising culture.

A few days ago, Sivan released the video for Bloom, which is a perfectly accurate depiction of the song. It’s obviously about his love of flowers, featuring the artist in animated avatar form, floating around a warehouse of floral extravagance.

There’s also the amazing subtext about bottoming in gay sex. That’s right: this anthem of gay sex is all about the finer points of receiving. Sivan even confirmed it himself in a tweet.

But then he took down the tweet. However, the rest of gay Twitter had already caught on.

“I need you to tell me right before it goes down,” he sings. “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, yeah I boom, I bloom just for you.”

It was also noted that if you replace “Bloom” with “Bottom” in the lyrics, it makes total sense.

If this is not the most long overdue tribute to the boys who know how to take it like a man, then I’m a dom top. We’ve been shamed long enough by our own community, so it’s about time someone embraced it… even if it had to come through a floral metaphor.

    It’s a beautiful song. The kind of you play once the Top comes over and the ghen-ghen is about to begin. When you know you’re about to start Blooming. ?
