The self-styled Lesbian Jesus breaks through with a brilliantly confident pop single for the ages
In this day and age, a pop song that becomes a true viral cross-over success is a rarity indeed. But Hayley Kiyoko seems to have achieved the impossible with her newest single ‘Curious,’ as the perky banger blew up over the weekend thanks in part to its evocative music video. It’s so far logged well over 3 million views and counting.
The track sees Hayley lamenting seeing her former lover move on with a new boyfriend. “I’m just curious,” she asks. “Is it serious?”
The music video, co-directed by Kiyoko herself, is a brilliant accompaniment to the track and also includes the best dance routine of the year.
Give the track some love below, and we’ll meet back here to try and sing the infuriatingly fast post-chorus.
Curious for more? Hayley releases her debut solo album Expectations via Atlantic on March 30th.
