South African singer Troye Sivan began his career the modern way – though Australian singing competitions and posting videos on You Tube. As a result of the attention he earned that way EMI Australia signed him to a contract. In 2013 he released his debut album, TRXYE. It made its way all the way up to number 5 on the Billboard Album Chart. The follow up came in 2015 and was called Wild. His debut studio album, Blue Neighborhood, cemented his claim as a young singer to watch when the first single “Youth” became his first Top 40 single. Two number one singles on the Billboard Dance Charts followed.
Sivan is also an actor having starred in X-Men Origins: Wolvering in 2009, will star in the upcoming Boy Erased and is the lead character in the trio of Spud films. He has also made his mark as a You Tube personality. As a result in 2014 he was named by Time magazine as one of the 25 most influential teens of the year.
All this and he is still only 23 years old. Oh, and did I mention he has also worked with Ariana Grande, Martin Garrix, Taylor Swift, and was the musical guest one week on Saturday Night Live? Sivan has sited Swift, Lorde and Amy Winehouse as his influences musically.
