Chloe Bailey is firing from all cylinders as she sets sail on her solo journey.
Case in point her new feature in Billboard.
The Parkwood Entertainment performer is stepping into the spotlight on her own accord, having risen to promises as part of a duo with her sister Halle.
Speaking candidly, the 23-year-old described the project as “definitely more Pop” and “is 90%.”
Peep quotes below…
On her Debut Album:
“It’s 90% done. It’s definitely more pop. I’m creating my own lane, as well as paying homage to the ones who have inspired me. It has been fun finding my voice.”
On The Timing of Her Solo Debut:
“My sister went to London to film her movie [the upcoming live-action version of The Little Mermaid] for seven or eight months, and it was so hard being without her. That is when I started creating my project. I found my confidence — like, “OK, you can do this now.” I always have my sister’s support, and she will always have mine, no matter what we do together or individually.”
On Her Goals For The Project:
“Of course, I wanna get some hits with this project. That’s always a fun thing. But I just wanna have fun and let people get to see the real me.”
On Showing More of Herself Online:
“The funny thing is, I haven’t changed at all. Even though my sister and I [launched] our different Instagrams and you saw us as individuals, a lot of that content was [already] on my finsta for my friends and family. I’m a pretty sexual being and I feel confident in who I am and in the skin I’m in. I think it’s so beautiful when humans appreciate their bodies because that’s what carries us through in the world and it’s not a nasty or gross thing. I just turned 23 this year, I’m not a teenager, I’m not a little kid anymore and I’m really happy that people are se”eing that. It definitely wasn’t forced. It wasn’t anything new. The real me was always there, people are just now seeing me 360.”
On Following In Mentor Beyonce’s Footsteps:
“It would be a dream to be able to have certain accolades that she has and go to some of the places that she has been and create a long-standing career with such longevity. I admire that, and it inspires me every day. That’s my greatest dream, but I also want to do it in my way with my voice and how I want to say it. Any time people want to compare, that puts a huge smile on my face, because that’s the biggest compliment anyone can give me. I have always been inspired by her, ever since I was a little girl. I’m happy and I’m grateful — and I hope to make my name shine in my own way.”
