Album review: Hayley Kiyoko - Expectations
Share This Article:
Poppy, bright and unashamedly queer, this cheery album brings together some already popular songs with new hidden gems, to create a truly infectious blend. It was the album we'd all been eagerly awaiting ever since Hayley Kiyoko announced it back in 2017. When she gave us the album title and cover on January 1st, Kiyoko wasn't just ushering in the new year with her music but creating an entire movement, of which she is the undisputed queen: #20gayteen. That's right - 2018 is going to be unashamedly queer, and that's something we all can (and should) celebrate. Everyone's favourite 'Lesbian Jesus' has long since been wowing us with catchy stand-out tunes like 'Girls Like Girls', which became 2015's anthem for queer women worldwide, so all eyes were on her for her debut album, Expectations. Last week, we were definitely not disappointed.
