The “Rush” is real. After dropping hints about a remix of his sultry summer single earlier this week in a series of TikTok teases, Troy Sivan dropped a revamp of “Rush” on Thursday morning (Aug. 31) featuring buzzy British singer PinkPantheress and Stray Kids member Hyunjin.
The first taste of Sivan’s upcoming album, Something to Give Each Other (Oct. 13) gets a new second verse from Panthress, which replaces the original one in which Sivan dropped steamy lines about hot fun in the summertime.
In the new PinkPantheress verse, the British singer matches that energy with a mix of sensual singing and rapping on the lines, “I know you’re somebody interested in dancin’/ I just told my lover, ‘Baby, tell me’/ ‘Did you really care I two-stepped with another?’/ But you’re still my sunshine, take this with me/ And I finished it so I know I’m sure/ Haven’t done this since September/ Right around then you were at my door.”
When the “you got my heartbeat racin’” pre-chorus comes around again Hyunjin’s voice is subtly mixed in, as well as being added to the euphoric chorus, “I feel the rush/ Addicted to your touch/ Oh, I feel the rush/ It’s so good, it’s so good.”
Sivan and PinkPantheress started teasing the remix over the weekend in a series of TikToks, beginning with a clip in which the Australian singer danced to a recent song snippet Pantheress shared on her socials, writing, “Wow love this lady’s voice. Would love to sing w her one day.”
A short time later, PinkPantheress responded with her own TikTok that shared a screengrab of a July 14 tweet in which she said “Rush” was “toooooo tooooo good,” with what sounded like her voice on a remix of the song. Another successful manifestation,” she wrote under the original tweet, while her caption seemed to officially confirm the news: “So excited for you guys to hear the rush remix.”
At that point internet sleuths linked Hyunjin to the remix as well after Sivan shared a nearly identical clip spotlighting the K-pop star with a similar praise-filled message: Wow love this guy’s voice,” Sivan wrote. “Would love to sing w him one day.”
