Describing the exhilarating experience as “so crazy,” Sivan acknowledges the depth of his connection with the Chinese audience: “I didn’t know it was like that. And so now I’ve been back a bunch of times. I’ve toured there, and I can’t wait to go back again.” Reveling in the affection showered upon him, the songster characterizes China as “truly sort of a dream universe to me.”
