When we said Troye Sivan's wild days were just beginning last year, we weren't lying. Since the release of his Wild EP and video trilogy, the now-21-year-old dropped a debut album to roaring success. His Blue Neighbourhood tour, too, has grown into an even larger second one. It should go without saying that the YouTube sensation is now a bona fide pop one.
Today, Sivan unveiled his duet with another sensation: Alessia Cara. Together, they put a new spin on Sivan's song "Wild." Cara takes control of the song's second verse with her wise-beyond-her-years soulful voice. She sings lines destined to become Tumblr-ified quotes: "We're alike, you and I / Two blue hearts locked in the wrong minds." That's going to be the source for many a young love letter, or, you know, sub-tweet. (Don't sub-tweet, guys. If this song inspires you to do anything, it's to say what you mean to the person you mean to say it to.) Sivan's part remains pretty much the same, save for some exceptional harmony action between himself and Cara.
Now, how long before someone mashes this song up with Cara's "Wild Things"? That would be quite the wild rumpus, for sure.
