I'm so stoked about Troye Sivan! This South African born singer is one of those must-watched-stars of 2016 (even Rolling Stone Magazine reckons so!) and with his dreamy voice will sure capture your soul and your CD players. He is rocking the world with his song Wild which is taken from his Blue Neighborhood EP. It's soft electropop with lucsious honest lyrics where he sings about the anxiety and brutal thing that is teenage love. I just love Wild, it's truly magical. For those who don't know him, here are some cool facts about this cutie:
