Troye Sivan is likely a name you’ve never heard of before, but that’s all about to change as the singer is set to become as much of a household name as his contemporary, Justin Bieber.
He’s already a huge star on YouTube among 12-15-year-olds, and that demo is helping his new song to go number 1 on the iTunes album chart.
Sivan could be the next Justin Bieber. Let’s just pray he’s not, in so many ways. He has a hit song called “The Fault in Our Stars.” He wrote, produced and released it in 2013, inspired by John Green’s novel. It’s not on the movie’s soundtrack. That CD produced no breakout single. You wonder why Sivan’s song wasn’t on it. We’ll find out. He’s a new breed of kid. Last year he released a YouTube video to his millions of fans– he’s HUGE in Australia and South Africa, his two homes– announcing he is gay. The kids don’t care. It’s 2014. If a pop star had said that in 1974, everyone would have fainted. Now, what the heck! I like this generation, but I don’t know what to call them. Generation ZZ? source
The only question that remains is, how long will it take for Scooter Braun to adopted him?
