Keekai is a queer Filipinx singer, songwriter, producer, and dancer based in Brooklyn, NY. Their newest music video, "Goal," explores gay hookup culture through coded imagery and innuendo.
Goal is about the detached nature of gay hookup culture, and how apathy is involved in ghosting and flaking on plans with another person. On the receiving end of these plans, Keekai comes out uninterested in the excuses (or lack thereof) of the other man; instead, they look for another easy means for release with another.
The song is a disco synth diss track to the men who thought they were playing the game correctly, when really, Keekai was never in their game in the first place.
The music video plays with the "Goal" theme of this song by capturing Keekai in different forms of the masculine and feminine in the basketball court. It is a high-energy video that expands Keekai's world in queerness and unapologetic expression.
