Just a few days ago, our favourite smol bean announced something seriously exciting and everyone at Unicorns HQ couldn’t contain their happiness. Troye revealed in a radio interview this week that his next single was going to be a collab, but little did we know that we would be actually hearing his latest musical treat with special guest, Alessia Cara, just three days later.
We’ve got to admit, when Troye announced he was releasing a new single, we were expecting something completely different, but this new version of ‘Wild’ has gone straight to the top of our Spotify playlists – and we have a feeling it’s there to stay. The duo’s new single was officially released today as of 12:30pm GMT following its premiere at 7 am ET on a popular New York radio station.
When the news was first announced at the beginning of this week, everyone was left attempting to guess who the YouTuber come international pop star would be singing with next. We hinted at Taylor Swift, Kanye, or maybe even Melanie Martinez but obviously, we were completely wrong – and we’re quite glad we were. Alessia, who is mostly known for her chart topping single ‘Here’, is the perfect fit alongside Troye; we honestly didn’t think ‘Wild’ could get any better than it already was.
Of course, all of Troye’s and Alessia’s fans have taken to the Twittersphere to congratulate the musical genius’ for creating something so perfect, and they have certainly given us all of the feels.
The single is now currently available on iTunes, Spotify and Troye has even released the audio to his VEVO YouTube channel. We have fallen completely in love with their new version of one of Troye’s most iconic songs, but there’s only one thing we’re now waiting for… The music video.
