Sivan’s performance of the vulnerable ballad against a backdrop of soft, ethereal piano showcased his beautiful and evocative vocals. His rendition paid a fitting tribute to the original, and it’s safe to say that Billie Eilish would likely approve of his interpretation.
Speaking about his single “Rush” in a previous statement, Sivan explained, “‘Rush’ is the feeling of kissing a sweaty stranger on a dancefloor, a 2-hour date that turned into a weekend, a crush, a winter, a summer. Party after party after party after after party. All of my experiences from a chapter where I feel confident, free and liberated. Independent, yet somehow the most connected to the music and community around me.”
As fans eagerly await the release of Something To Give Each Other, they can savor Troye Sivan’s rendition of “What Was I Made For” and anticipate the full album, which is set to drop on October 13 via Capitol Records.
