Troye Sivan is back stronger and better than ever with his new music video. The new video is for his single “Heaven,” which was co-written by Jack Antonoff, Alex Hope, and Claire Boucher. The song itself is very beautiful and has a wonderful and powerful message.
In the music video, Sivan pays tribute to LGBTQ youth and rights activists throughout the years. The video contains footage of marriages, protests, and Pride Parades. “Heaven” features the brilliant vocals of Betty Who, and she and Sivan are wonderful vocalists together. The music video has an impactful message of the struggles that many LGBTQ youths have in coming to terms with their sexuality and basically coming to terms with who they are as a person.

What I love about the music video is how simplistic the video is. The message of “Heaven” was given very clearly. The concept of having the entire music video in black and white opened my eyes to the beauty that Sivan has created. Sivan’s embrace with another guy brought the music video to life, showing that love is love no matter who you are. The music video was directed by Luke Gilford.
Troye Sivan started his career in the film industry, where he starred in the Spud trilogy films. He then moved to YouTube to make videos. His “Boyfriend Tag” featuring Tyler Oakley won them the 2014 Teen Choice award for Choice Web Collaboration. The latest thing he has done has been creating music. He has released three different albums/EPs, including TRXYE EP, WILD EP, and Blue Neighbourhood.
The 21-year-old came out to his YouTube audience back in 2013. He dedicates “Heaven” to “all who’ve come before me and fought for our cause and those who now continue the fight.”
