NEW MUSIC: HAYLEY KIYOKO | CHANCE
Singer-songwriter Hayley Kiyoko has unveiled a new song, “Chance,” following “Found My Friends,” released earlier May. Released to officially kicking off Pride Month, the new is based on those moments when you deny your true feelings for someone out of fear of rejection and therefore don't allow someone to take a chance on you. Kiyoko says. “I hope this song empowers people to push past their own self-doubt and realize how worthy they are of love.” The track comes with an accompanying music video directed by Kiyoko and shot on a 16mm film. The visual depicts the singer and her crush played by "Love, Simon" and "X-Men: Apocalypse" actress Alexandra Shipp falling head-over-heels for each other while staying on a farm.
On her vision for the video, she said: “I’m always starved for hopeful queer stories onscreen, and I really wanted to direct a narrative that focused on the happier ‘honeymoon’ phase of a relationship, to show what can happen if we take a chance on ourselves and have that love reciprocated. The video is meant to portray those first few weeks, months, or even years when you are utterly head over heels in love with each other.” Kiyoko will be performing at the Can’t Cancel Pride virtual fundraising event Friday, June 4th.
