For the most relatable song of 2019 thus far, princes of pop, Troye Sivan and Lauv team up to recount their aversion to that which most people seek. "I’m so tired of love songs/ Tired of love songs/ Tired of love songs/ Tired of love,” repeats the chorus of the new single, "I'm So Tired...". Me too!

The anti-love song recounts the woes of a broken heart, ironically reminded of their past relationships by the pursuit of new ones. Interestingly, Lauv hasn't released new music since "There's No Way," a track that he collaborated on with his now-ex, Julia Michaels. Meanwhile, Sivan continues happily partnered with his boyfriend Jacob Bixenman. That said, his verse on the track proves equally as heavy-hearted.

Just a few days prior to its release, Sivan (our VMAN40 cover star) took to Twitter to tease the track, a habit many pop stars have now come to practice.

To his 8.8 million followers, the singer shares references to Lorde and Coldplay on the new single, calling himself a "stan". The two artists are in fact referenced, with subtle calls to their respective songs, "Buzzcut Season" and "Hurts Like Heaven". Turning the tables, we stan Troye and Lauv on a track together! Listen to "I'm So Tired..." below.
