Trailblazing pop star Hayley Kiyoko is officially kicking off Pride Month with today’s release of her dreamy new synth-pop anthem. “Chance” is available now via Atlantic Records at all DSPs and streaming services. Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winner Danja (Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears) and co-written by Kiyoko, Pat Morrissey & Kill Dave, and Nate Cyphert, the single arrives alongside a cinematic, narrative music video that matches the song’s spirit of romantic risk and reward. Directed by Kiyoko and shot on 16mm film, the sun-drenched visual, which co-stars acclaimed actress Alexandra Shipp (Love, Simon, X-Men: Apocalypse) made its broadcast premiere on MTV and is streaming now at Hayley’s official YouTube channel HERE.

“Chance” follows the recent release of “Found My Friends,” which marked the beginning of a new era for Kiyoko as her first single of 2021. Co-produced by Hayley, Danja and Pat Morrissey & Kill Dave, the song emphasizes the importance of finding friendship within yourself. An official music video – directed by Kiyoko and shot on 16mm film at LA’s historic Millennium Biltmore Hotel – is streaming now HERE. Upon release, “Found My Friends” was met with ecstatic critical applause from a wide range of publications including PAPER, NYLON, V MAGAZINE, Teen Vogue, People and more. E! News declared “Lesbian Jesus is back” while Billboard praised the “groovy anthem to self-love” writing, “The song’s entrancing, woozy production provides a dopamine-boosting backdrop that will have you reaching for the repeat button. 

Hayley will usher in Pride festivities with a pair of eagerly anticipated live performances beginning this Friday, June 4th at “Can’t Cancel Pride,” a virtual relief benefit for the LGBTQ+ community produced by Procter & Gamble® and iHeartMedia and available to stream at 9:00 PM (ET). Continuing the celebrations, Hayley is gearing up for an in-person headline performance at OUTLOUD: RAISING VOICES, an all-star benefit concert set for Saturday, June 5th at the LA Memorial Coliseum. Hosted and curated by Adam Lambert, and available to stream on Twitch, tickets for the in-person event are on sale now HERE.

Kiyoko has become one of the most celebrated pop artists since releasing 2018’s landmark debut album EXPECTATIONS, which according to Rolling Stone, placed her “at the forefront of an unapologetically queer pop movement.” In #20GAYTEEN, Kiyoko was nominated for two VMAs where she performed “Curious” and won “Push Artist Of The Year.” Since her 2015 debut, Hayley has amassed over 816M global streams, over 2.14M YouTube subscribers, and has accrued over 728M lifetime YouTube views, in addition to selling out numerous venues across the country and abroad on her previous headline tour. Lauded as one of “The 21st Century’s Most Influential Women Musicians” by NPR among other milestones, Hayley continues to impact and inspire her community. Through her honest storytelling and lyricism, she encourages hope as her resounding message, showcased on her collection of songs, I’M TOO SENSITIVE FOR THIS SHIT, which arrived in early 2020.
