Hayley Kiyoko, who is referred to as the “Lesbian Jesus” by her fans, has dropped a new single today, titled “I Wish.”

The “What I Need” hitmaker revealed on July 9 via her Twitter account that she had a new single coming soon for her fans, and it appears she hasn’t let them down after building a lot of hype for it.

“I have no words! Go stream the hell out of #IWISH by @HayleyKiyoko. I sure will anyway!! Let’s make it to the charts! SO SO proud of you Hayley,” one fan tweeted.

“I’m gonna be home alone for a week meaning I can play #IWish by @HayleyKiyoko on the Sonos speakers 24/7 and nobody can stop me,” another user shared to their Twitter page.

With the release of the track, she also dropped the music video to her official YouTube account, which has since created a lot of buzz.

Within six hours, the video, which sees Kiyoko fiercely perform full choreography with other females while in her school uniform, has racked up over 478,000 views

“Miss @HayleyKiyoko u didn’t have to snap so hard with I Wish choreography but you did and which is why we have decided to stan u forever luv,” one fan wrote in a tweet after watching the video.

“‘I Wish’ is simply amazing, and the video clip is perfect. I love it sm,” another tweeted.
