Lesbian pop star Hayley Kiyoko and queer R&B singer Kehlani give into their feelings for each other during a road trip for the music video “What I Need.”

The video opens with Kehlani packing her bag and fighting with her aunt.

“You think I’m fucking stupid and I don’t know that that’s more than just a best friend?” her aunt yells at her.

“Can I be me? I’m my own fucking person, why does it always have to turn into [something] about her?” Kehlani responds before leaving the house and getting into Kiyoko’s car.

The pair drive around and go to a bar before their car breaks down on the road. A truck driver offers them a ride but Kiyoko doesn’t want to get in the car with him. Kehlani decides to go but decides to leave at the last minute. She runs into Kiyoko’s arms and the couple kiss.

“just so u know…. this my favorite video i’ve ever been apart of. Hayley is a genius, an incredible actress and one of the most diligent and hard working directors i’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. who’s ready? #WHATINEED,” Kehlani tweeted about the video.

Kiyoko responded, “I LOVE YOU KEHLANI.”

“What I Need” will be featured on Kiyoko’s debut album “Expectations.”
