Chloe x Halle is an American contemporary R&B duo composed of sisters- Chloe and Halle Bailey.
I first saw the duo in ‘Grown-ish‘. Grown-ish is an American sitcom series and a spin-off of the Black-ish series.
You guys! I love Grown-ish so much, I can’t even explain. It’s a series that Focuses on Zoey Johnson (Yara shahidi) as she goes to college, and her whole journey into adulthood and fashion. It’s a series I find really relatable.
Halle Bailey, 19.
Chloe Bailey plays ‘Jazlyn Forster’ in the series, while Halle plays ‘Skylar Forster’, and they are really amazing actresses.
Chloe x Halle: Background & Career
They were born in Atlanta, Georgia, but were raised in Los Angeles, California.
Their musical career started when they launched their YouTube channel at the ages of 13 and 11 respectively, with a cover of Beyonce’s ‘Best Thing I Never Had’.
Their rendition of ‘Pretty Hurts’ by Beyonce then went viral, and drew the attention of the singer herself , and in 2015, she signed the sister duo to her management company ‘Parkwood Entertainment’.
Chloe X Halle’s debut EP ‘Sugar Symphony’ was released in April 29 2016, and later that year, they made cameo appearances in Beyonce’s lemonade visual album.
They also served as Beyonce’s opening act for the European leg of ‘The Formation World Tour’.
In spring of 2017, the duo released their mixtape ‘The Two Of Us’ which was later featured on Rolling Stone magazine’s best R&B albums of 2017 list.
December 2017, Chloe x Halle released the theme song for the TV series Grown-ish entitled ‘Grown’, they were later added to the cast as series regulars after initially signing on for recurring roles.
March 2018, they released their debut album and were nominated for two Grammy Awards, alongside other Awards they’ve been nominated for.
Asides all mentioned above, the duo have singles, soundtracks and have been featured in more films and TV shows such as Let It Shine (choir members), Joyful Noise (choir members), Austin & Ally and many more.
Most recently (July 2019) Disney announced that Halle Bailey had been cast as Ariel, in the upcoming live-action remake of ‘The Little Mermaid‘. The week this was announced, social media was literally on fire!
As much as black girls fully supported and praised Disney for that, seeing as it was a major black girl magic moment. There were others who simply could not accept the idea of a black girl playing the role of Ariel.
We all have our fingers crossed and can’t wait to see the movie!
Chloe x Halle: Their Style
If you watch the Grown-ish series, you’d see that both Jazlyn and Skylar are usually styled casual, sassy, and chic. But, when they are not on set, their style is pretty versatile and worthy of attention.
