Hayley Kiyoko Lets A Woman Take A Chance On Her In New Video
Affectionately known to fans as the “Lesbian Jesus,” Hayley Kiyoko is kicking off Pride Month with a brand new track: “Chance.”
“‘Chance’ is a song based on those moments when I denied my true feelings for someone out of fear of rejection, and therefore didn’t allow someone to take a chance on me,” Kiyoko said of the track. “I hope this song empowers people to push past their own self-doubt and realize how worthy they are of love.”
Shot on 16mm film by cinematographer Tehillah De Castro, the accompanying music video stars Hayley Kiyoko and costar Alexandra Shipp living a real cottagecore fantasy, falling in love in the purest ways through flowers, picnic cuddles, and kisses in the hay.
Hayley Kiyoko also self-directed the video for “Chance”, and shared:
“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. I directed the video on 16mm film, alongside an incredible team of badass women — from the director of photography to the editor, and the producers. I am so grateful for the entire crew who helped bring this vision to life as well as to our incredible lead actress, Alexandra Shipp. I hope ‘Chance’ sparks the hope that anyone can and will find the love they deserve.”
