Hayley Kiyoko has been in the spotlight since her childhood—with film roles, TV appearances, and even a tour opening for Justin Bieber as a member of pop group the Stunners all on her resume before she was of legal drinking age. Still, her solo debut Expectations feels like our first true up-close-and-personal look at Kiyoko. Turns out her hit 2015 single “Girls Like Girls” paved the way for the new album, which finds Kiyoko singing plainly about lesbian relationships and sensuality to the sound of electronic dream-pop. While there are more openly gay pop stars than ever, it’s still rare—and vital, and wonderful—to hear a young woman singing about women. “I think it’s just important for people to lead by example,” she told Billboard last month. “My motto is to help people love themselves sooner.”
