Keiynan Lonsdale Released A Music Video Celebrating Young Love
Keiynan Lonsdale has been very busy lately.
The heartthrob who normally runs around on TV’s The Flash has recently made a splash in the pop culture world because of his role in gay teen rom-com Love, Simon. But, acting isn’t all the rising celebrity has on his portfolio.
The actor, who came out as bisexual last year, is also a singer, and he recently released a new lyric video for the song “Kiss the Boy.”
The music video celebrates love between young people. The video shows teenagers (boys and girls, straight, bisexual, and gay) hanging out, kissing, and being all kinds of cute.
Recently, Lonsdale told Billboard that he created the song after being inspired by Love, Simon and The Little Mermaid.
“The teaser for Love, Simon had dropped on YouTube and then for some reason, I don’t know why, the song ’Kiss the Girl’ from The Little Mermaid popped up on my feed,” he said.
“I was like, ‘Oh, that’s so funny. I wonder if I can do a cover of that song, but change it to about a boy?’ It didn’t work, but I was thinking about the Love, Simon trailer and I was really happy. Eventually, I got the hook, ’If you wanna kiss the boy/ Then you better kiss the boy right now.'”
“Kiss the Boy” will be a part of Keiynan Lonsdale’s upcoming album. Until that comes out, you can watch the music video down below.
