Chloe x Halle is an R&B duo composed of sisters Chloe and Halle Bailey. At a young age, the sisters performed in minor acting roles before moving from Mableton, Georgia, to Los Angeles in 2012. The two began posting music covers to YouTube and were acknowledged by Beyoncé, who became their mentor and later signed them to her label, Parkwood Entertainment. They subsequently released the EP Sugar Symphony (2016) and the mixtape The Two of Us (2017).

The duo gained further prominence after starring in the sitcom Grown-ish (2018–present) and releasing their debut album The Kids Are Alright (2018), for which they earned two Grammy Award nominations including Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album. In 2020, they released their second studio album Ungodly Hour to critical acclaim, earning them another three Grammy Award nominations including Best Progressive R&B Album, Best R&B Song for "Do It" and Best Traditional R&B Performance for "Wonder What She Thinks of Me". The album's lead single "Do It" became the duo's first song to chart on the Billboard Hot 100[1] and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs,[2] peaking at number 63 and number 23 respectively. The album itself peaked at number 16[3] and number 11[4] on the Billboard 200 Chart and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, respectively, becoming the duo's highest peak on the former chart and their first on the latter.

Life and career[edit]

1998–2015: Early life and career beginnings[edit]

Chloe Elizabeth Bailey and Halle Lynn Bailey,[5] were born in Atlanta, Georgia on July 1, 1998 and March 27, 2000, respectively.[6] The two were raised in Mableton, Georgia by their parents Courtney and Doug Bailey,[7][8][9] and later moved with them to Los Angeles in mid 2012.[10] While in Georgia, the two played minor acting roles in films, including The Fighting Temptations (2003), starring Beyoncé, where Chloe starred solo, and the Disney television film Let It Shine (2012).[11] Their dad began teaching them how to write songs at the ages of ten and eight.[12] They launched a YouTube channel at the ages of 13 and 11 respectively, with a cover of Beyoncé's "Best Thing I Never Had".[12] They first performed as Chloe x Halle when uploading covers of pop songs onto this channel.[13][14] The duo made their talk show debut when they appeared on The Ellen Show in April 2012.[15][10] They were crowned by Radio Disney as the winners of the fifth season of The Next Big Thing in December 2012,[16] and consequently made a cameo appearance in the Disney series Austin & Ally performing the song "Unstoppable" in September 2013.[17][18]

After gaining prominence with their YouTube videos and Disney projects, the duo independently released a four-track project titled Uncovered in September 2013. The release was made up of covers of the pop songs "Applause", "We Can't Stop" "Roar" and "Wrecking Ball".[19] Their December 2013 rendition of "Pretty Hurts" by Beyoncé went viral and drew the attention of the singer herself. In 2015, she signed the sister duo to her management company, Parkwood Entertainment with a reported $1 million deal for six albums.[14][20] The duo made a cameo appearance in her visual album Beyoncé: Lemonade (2016),[21][22] and accepted the BET Award for Viewer's Choice on her behalf in 2016.[23]

2016–2017: Sugar Symphony and The Two of Us[edit]

Chloe x Halle made their professional debut with the EP, Sugar Symphony, which was released under Parkwood on April 29, 2016.[24][25][26] The duo's debut single and the EP's lead single "Drop" was released in early April.[27][28] It was accompanied by the EP's second and final single "Fall" in September 2016.[29] The duo performed the song in addition to "Baby Bird" and "This is For My Girls" at the White House Easter Egg Roll, where they were introduced by Michelle Obama.[30] Prior to this, Chloe x Halle also performed as the opening act to Obama's keynote discussion at the SXSW Music Festival in March 2016.[11] They also performed "Drop" at the BET Awards 2016.[31] Chloe x Halle later served as Beyoncé's opening act for the European leg of The Formation World Tour.[32] The duo also supported American singer Andra Day on her Cheers to the Fall tour in late 2016.[33]

In the spring of 2017, Chloe x Halle released their critically acclaimed mixtape, The Two of Us, which featured new music mostly written and produced by the duo.[34][35][36] The mixtape was featured on Rolling Stone magazine's Best R&B Albums of 2017 list.[37] In April 2017, the duo performed the US National Anthem to begin the 2017 NFL Draft.[38] Chloe x Halle released the theme song for the TV series Grown-ish, entitled "Grown", in December 2017.[39] They were added to the cast as series regulars, after initially signing on for recurring roles.[40] Their song "The Kids Are Alright" was featured in the series debut.[41]

2018–2019: The Kids Are Alright[edit]

Both "Grown" and "The Kids Are Alright" served as the lead and second singles respectively of Chloe x Halle's debut studio album, The Kids Are Alright, which they announced in late February 2018. The album is also paired with a visual. [42] Their single "Warrior" appeared on both the soundtrack for the film A Wrinkle in Time (2018), as well as their debut album.[43] The duo performed the song "America the Beautiful" at Wrestlemania XXXIV in early April 2018.[44] Chloe x Halle released their debut studio album, The Kids Are Alright, on March 23, 2018 to critical acclaim.[10][45] To promote the album, Chloe x Halle performed "Happy Without Me" and "The Kids Are Alright" on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.[46]

Chloe x Halle opening for Beyoncé in Los Angeles during the On the Run II Tour

Chloe x Halle's performance at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was well received by critics.[47] On May 31, 2018, it was announced that they would be the opening act for the U.S. leg of Beyonce and Jay-Z's On the Run II Tour, alongside DJ Khaled.[48] Chloe x Halle were nominated for two Grammy Awards in December 2018, namely Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album (for The Kids Are Alright).[49] At the ceremony, they honored American musician Donny Hathaway by performing his 1972 single "Where Is the Love",[50] and additionally presented the award for Best Rap Album to Cardi B.[51] Chloe x Halle's performance of "America the Beautiful" at the Super Bowl LIII was praised by their mentor Beyoncé in addition to several news publications.[52][53]

In July 2019, Disney announced that Halle Bailey had been cast as Princess Ariel in the upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, set to be directed by Rob Marshall.[54] She will also record and perform the soundtrack for the film.[55] Halle Bailey's casting as Ariel caused a small amount of controversy, with some claiming that casting an African American in the role of Ariel was unfaithful to the original character. Facebook and Instagram pages dedicated to 'defending Ariel' began to spring up around this time, and would frequently share racist arguments against Halle's casting and stereotypical images of black women as mermaids.[56][57][58] Disney responded to the public with an open letter defending their casting.[59]

The duo appeared and performed on American media personality Nick Cannon's television show Wild 'n Out in late July 2019.[60][61] In September 2019, their cover of The Platters's "Enchanted" was featured in the recap montage of Jesse Pinkman's arc on Breaking Bad to coincide the Netflix film El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.[62]

People's Choice Awards, where they were nominated for "Group of 2020".[82] In December 2020, Chloe x Halle appeared in The Disney Holiday Singalong event and performed "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?".[83] They shortly performed the songs "Don't Make It Harder on Me", "Baby Girl", "Do It", "Ungodly Hour" and "Wonder What She Thinks of Me" at their NPR Tiny Desk Concert in December 2020.[84] They also performed "Baby Girl" at the 2020 Billboard Women in Music ceremony, where Beyoncé presented them with the Rising Star Award.[85][86]

On February 24, 2021, a music video for the album's title track "Ungodly Hour" was released. Following this, Ungodly Hour (Chrome Edition), a reissue of the album, was released on February 26, 2021.[87] The reissue would include two new songs and a first time vinyl release.

Artistry[edit]

Chloe x Halle write and arrange all of their songs in their home studio. They are also self-taught musicians. Halle enjoys jazz and has been listening to Billie Holiday from a young age.[11] She has cited the singer as one of the major influences on her vocals.[12] Chloe, the primary producer, is inspired by artists such as Grimes, Missy Elliott and Tune-Yards, as well as some R&B artists.[88][89] The duo describe their style of music as "confetti" because of its "harmonious" nature put together with "heavy beats and 808 drums that come together like a symphony."[90] Chloe x Halle have also noted that their music style is a combination of their music tastes.[91] They have said: "My sister and I like to make music that has interesting sounds and nuances."[92]
