Know

Chloe Elizabeth Bailey (born July 1, 1998), known mononymously as Chlöe, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, dancer and record producer. She is best known for being one half of the musical duo Chloe x Halle with her sister Halle Bailey, together earning five Grammy Award nominations since 2018. In 2021, she released "Have Mercy" as the lead single from her upcoming solo debut studio album.

“There ain’t no gold in this river/ That I’ve been washin’ my hands in forever/ I know there is hope in these waters/ But I can’t bring myself to swim/ When I am drowning in this silence/ Baby, let me in,” she belted, before launching into soaring whistle tones by the end of the song’s chorus, peppered with some bonus vocal runs.

Chlöe is in a fight for her life. It might not seem like it to the outside world that’s witnessing her rise to solo pop stardom. After all, the songstress, best known as the older sister in the singing duo Chloe x Halle, is at the top of her game following the September release of her debut single, “Have Mercy,” which debuted in the top five of Billboard’s Hot R&B digital and streaming charts and at #28 on Billboard’s Hot 100 — the highest yet in her career. A quick look at her social media pages — a highlight reel of her boss bitch beauty, otherworldly vocal abilities and unfolding production genius — might lead one to believe she’s living on cloud nine. And she is. (Source: www.refinery29.com)

That’s all to say that by 2021, the world figured we knew all there was to know about the dynamic singing sisters, who have Beyoncé’s stamp of approval. We thought we knew their sound: a vibey, Afrofuturtistic meld of every genre that is grounded and ethereal, powerful and angelic. We thought we knew their style, throwing around loaded words like “cute,” “tasteful” and “age-appropriate” to mask our allegiance to respectability. (Source: www.refinery29.com)

For as long as we’ve known Chlöe, we’ve also known her sister, Halle. Born and raised in the Atlanta area, the pair have been singing since they were adolescents. The story goes that their father, a former stockbroker, recognized their love of music early and encouraged them to learn how to write their own songs. They were 10 and 8 at the time. After songwriting came learning how to play the piano and delving into music production, both of which Chlöe taught herself via YouTube and Google searches. When she was 13, she and Halle got permission from their parents to record a cover of Beyoncé’s “Best Thing I Never Had” and post it to YouTube. Having amassed well over 6.7 million views, it’s raw in that special, now-nostalgic way that 2011 videos were, but there is no doubt about the duo’s talent. (Source: www.refinery29.com)
