Hailing from the vibrant city of Los Angeles is the mesmerizing talent of Hayley Kiyoko – who effortlessly embodies the roles of a pop singer-songwriter and an actress. She first gained prominence as an actress, appearing in various TV shows and movies including, Scooby Doo! (2009-2010), Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) and many more. Kiyoko then transitioned into the music industry and became broadly known for her pop and electropop music. Often referred to as "Lesbian Jesus" by her dedicated fanbase, she has been celebrated for her openly queer identity and empowering anthems that resonate with LGBTQ+ communities. In a very heteronormative culture and music business, Kiyoko strives to normalize lesbian relationships through her artistry. Hayley Kiyoko's authentic and unapologetic approach to her art has solidified her as a role model and an influential voice in the music industry.
Hayley's latest single, "Greenlight," delves into those moments when life feels stagnant and nothing seems to go your way. It authentically captures the emotions of self-reflection and honesty. The chorus and pre-chorus deliver raw sentiments swiftly followed by an infectious melody, just enough to scratch the back of your head right. This track truly resonates and leaves an indelible mark.
Undoubtedly, "Greenlight" is my favorite pop song of the year so far.
