Lauv & Troye Sivan "I'm So Tired..."

by Taylor Giangregorio


“I Like Me Better” singer Lauv has assembled yet another relatable and catchy masterpiece of a song - but this time with a little help from the rising pop icon Troye Sivan. The track is titled “i’m so tired…” as Lauv sings lugubrious verses of how love songs trigger him in regard to doomed relationships. Troye and Lauv croon about how they cope with heartbreak and longing in the fast-paced and wistful track.

They harmonize, “I’m so tired of love songs, tired of love songs, tired of love songs, tired of love/ I just wanna go home, wanna go home, wanna go home, woah.” With anthems like Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” and Billie Eilish’s “when the party’s over” it appears that pop artists are over romance and are soaking in the single life.

Lauv’s 2017 single “I Like Me Better has amassed over 600 million streams on Spotify and climbed the charts to number seven on Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40. After a victorious 2018, Lauv is starting out 2019 strong with an anthem that speaks to today’s jaded youth, out today (Jan. 24). The duo is set to perform the single on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Feb. 6.
