MTV's TRL just premiered singer-songwriter and actress Hayley Kiyoko's new song and video for "Feelings."

"'Feelings' is super special to me because I think a lot of people can relate to the emotions that are brought on by being completely hooked on someone," Kiyoko tells Flaunt. "I wanted to write an anthem celebrating these ‘feelings,’ as opposed to suppressing them like society often makes people do in today's dating scene." 

"We have feelings, we get involved, and sometimes we can’t control it. After all, we’re human. I am thrilled about this release and excited for everyone to get the first taste of what's to come from my album next year, not to mention I had a blast shooting and directing this video, which was all done in one take - something I’ve never done before."

Kiyoko started her career off as an actress appearing on various Disney Channel shows and is now one of Atlantic Records' bright talents. Her music is an honest reflection of who she is and she's definitely not afraid to talk about her sexuality or raw emotions in her lyrics. Rolling Stone recently featured her as one of the "10 Artists You Need To Know."

Kiyoko is currently working hard on her debut album, which is set to drop early 2018. Above in a gallery, check out her recent photoshoot with Josh Paul Thomas, which she's exclusively sharing with FLAUNT.
