I’m actually glad Chloe said this.. because most of the people who swear she’s “doing too much” or straying so far from who she was in the group, clearly weren’t paying attention.
Chloe and Halle Bailey are inseparable in both their sisterhood and their musical partnership as Chloe x Halle. They had a joint Instagram account for pretty much their entire career — that is, until early 2021 when each sister created their own personal social media account because Halle was away in London filming Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation of “The Little Mermaid.”
Chloe’s Instagram, in particular, garnered a lot of attention — and hateful comments. She shared videos of her doing the Buss it challenge, lighting sage in her underwear, and partaking in the silhouette challenge, showing off a more skillfully choreographed sensuous dance routine than most other participants. These videos and her somewhat provocative photos seemed to showcase a young woman coming into herself and having fun with her womanhood, however not everyone seemed to be a fan, with some claiming Chloe was “forcing sexuality.” However, Chloe kept that energy and remained consistent as she lead up to her recently released solo album, “In Pieces.” Unfortunately, many of the hate opinions surrounding her have remained consistent as well.
In a recent interview with Atlanta’s Majic 107.5, Chlöe broke down the negative responses after being asked about the criticism by host Ryan Cameron. “I saw somebody that said, ‘Whatever happened to Chloe X Halle?’” the host said. “Because they felt like it was a space — after Beyoncé [signed the sister duo] and all that — there was just gonna be all these things. Then, all of a sudden, all these things really happen, then it’s like, ‘Whatever happened to Chloe X Halle?’ It’s like they almost felt like… they wanted you to stay a kid!”

“The thing is,” Chlöe replied, “The same people who say that weren’t fans of Halle and [me] when we had our Ungodly Hour album out, The Kids Are Alright. So, it’s a bunch of people who are just putting in their two cents now just to really say things. Sis and I, we’ve been underground for a minute and the same people who talk weren’t around then or giving us our props then, and it’s like now they want to talk trash for some reason.”
For sure, it’s appeared that the more success the sisters have seen, the more critical the peanut gallery has become — but those people sharing their opinions now don’t even seem to know much about the girls because even throughout their performances together, Chloe was always the more “extra” or “sexually charged” one, especially during the ‘Ungodly Hour’ era. Also, the sound is also still very similar.
Take a look at the clip for yourself and let us know your thoughts. Why do people seem to be against Chloe so much?
