Kehlani Ashley Parrish (born April 24, 1995), known professionally as Kehlani, is an American singer and songwriter who collaborated with Hayley Kiyoko on "What I Need" and also appeared in the single's music video. Kehlani's singing career effectively began when she started out as a member and lead vocalist for the group called PopLyfe. In 2011, they auditioned for the sixth season of America's Got Talent, and eventually finished in fourth place. During their final appearance, judge Piers Morgan told Kehlani, "You've got real talent, but I don't think you need the group." Her solo career went through the roof however. So far Kehlani has released two mixtapes and twenty two singles and her debut album SweetSexySavage was released on January 27, 2017.
"One Bad Night"
In her self-directed music video for "One Bad Night", Hayley tackles trans violence by telling the story of the two strangers Amber and Donald. The video depicts how Amber (portrayed by Erin Armstrong) gets kicked out of her home and wanders through the streets with all her belongings at night. At the same time Donald (portrayed by Kelvin Harrison Jr.) gets mocked by his Valet Boss at work because he was late. He decides to steal a car he was supposed to park and goes on the highway.
"Mercy/Gatekeeper " is the fifth track off Hayley's debut album, Expectations. It is the only song on the album where the lyrics came first. It’s a poem that came from Kiyoko's journal word for word at 4 AM. She described herself to be in a "bad place mentally trying to find the light" at that time. The song is supposed to help listeners through and remind them to keep moving forward, no matter how dark it gets.
