They give me hope.
Hayley Kiyoko & Kehlani are there for each other in the “What I Need” video.
Romantic relationships have so many twist and turns I just can’t, but Hayley Kiyoko & Kehlani’s new music video for “What I Need,” the latest release off Kiyoko’s pop opus, Expectations, gives me hope. In it, the two escape the mundane and run off together.
The clip, directed by Kiyoko, begins with an argument between Kehlani and her aunt (who is no fool to her niece’s sexuality). The pressure forces Kehlani into Hayley’s arms and the two make a break for it. On their journey, they encounter ups and downs, but at the end of the day still’ve got each other’s backs. It’s kind of like the modern day version of Thelma & Louise, but hotter.
