Move over Queen Bey: Chloe x Halle are coming for your crown

The star of singing sisters Chloe and Halle Bailey is rising, with the latest being their appearance as Teen Vogue cover models in June.

The talented duo were first discovered when they did a YouTube cover of Best Thing I Never Had by Beyoncé.

Queen Bey didn’t waste any time and took them under her wing, signing up the singers under her record label Parkwood Entertainment.

#BlackLivesMatter: Chloe x Halle speak out

Chloe x Halle have been vocal regarding police brutality in the United States (US), urging fans to sign petitions and donating to the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

The sisters, who postponed the release of Ungodly Hour due to the spotlight on police brutality, posed together for the stunning June Teen Vogue shoot at their home in Los Angeles.

At the time, Chloe tweeted: “In honour of all of the lives lost in police brutality, we felt like it was right to postpone, and fully shine our attention and our work on them.”

She further stated: “Music has been used for a long time to bring us joy and healing in difficult times like this.”

However the duo blessed us with their much-anticipated album this morning.

The album, which explores the themes of love and regret, shows a different side to the sisters, flipping their image of “perfect angels” and introducing us to their naughty side.

Trending on Twitter

Chloe x Halle were trending at No 1 last week with most singing their praises.

A few tweets speculated that the Busy Boy song was a way for Chloe to spill the beans on why she broke up with Diggy Simmons.

Within seven hours, the album zoomed up to the No 1 spot on iTunes USA.

Rolling Stone magazine has also listed Ungodly Hour as one of the 50 best albums of 2020 so far.

What’s next for the dynamic duo?

In July 2019, it was announced that Halle is set to play Ariel in the live-action The Little Mermaid movie.

Many saw Halle’s breakout feature film role as a huge win for inclusion but, like clockwork, social media found an issue with a revamped Ariel played by a black woman.

That did not bother Halle one bit, as she continues to break boundaries.

Chloe, on the other hand, is also expanding her acting credentials in feature films. In December 2019 she wrapped filming for her role in the horror film The Georgetown Project, starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Simpkins.

The sisters have proven time and time again that they’re a force to be reckoned with. Being Beyoncé’s “crown jewels” doesn’t mean they have to sit around and wait for things to be handed to them.

Before we know it they just might dethrone the reigning queen of R&B …
