    this is a dope video. I want to see more from her

    • Truth September 10, 2021

      I wanted more from the song and video. The hook is hott. The rest is forgettable. The video was rushed because she was filming a movie, so for that- great job!

    • dee September 10, 2021

      You saw enough of her in the video. Buttocks out the whole time.

  2. Pat September 9, 2021

    Pretty girl. Something felt missing tho. Maybe a feature
    Good luck!

    • Farrahs Luggage September 10, 2021

      Starpower was missing. This won’t see the top 60.

  3. June Diary September 9, 2021

    Trash but better than Normanly

    • Farrahs Luggage September 10, 2021

      How’s June’s Diary doing? 🙂

  4. Theman September 9, 2021

    Great video. Lackluster song.

  5. Ugghh September 9, 2021

    She hyped this song too long. It’s not giving what it was supposed to gave. Especially for an intro as a solo artist

    • Are You Kidding Me? September 10, 2021

      Agreed. WAY too long.

      I think if you’re going to do that, your music should be something that everyone rushes to copy because it’s so different and fresh.

    • Farrahs Luggage September 10, 2021

      Agreed. Lots all steam. Kinda like Twerlulator

  6. Yonce September 9, 2021

    Love it

  7. Yonce September 9, 2021

    Love it can’t wait for the vmas

  8. NOHUN September 9, 2021

    Normani left the chat

    • Farrahs Luggage September 10, 2021

      Your dad left your mom is what you mean 🙂

  9. I’m Here September 9, 2021

    This video was just ok and the song isn’t good at all. Too much demonic symbolic throughout the video, so she should be fine within the music industry. You clowns don’t get it, but you will during judgement day. #staywoke

    • The Truth September 9, 2021

      I noticed it people are so blind they can’t see the truth. It’s all over the video.

    • Are You Kidding Me? September 9, 2021

      As much as people used to say there was Illuminati/demonic symbolism, I couldn’t even explain it away in this.

    • Credits September 10, 2021

      The Medusa reincarnate. Lol.

    • yup! September 10, 2021

      This right here. said the same

    • akathexfactor September 10, 2021

      @ImHere & @TheTruth I luv chloe but facts!

  10. Amber September 9, 2021

    Gowns, beautiful gowns. That’s all I got 🤷🏾‍♀️

    • NOHUN September 10, 2021

      SCREAMING

    • Broken Promethis Promethis September 10, 2021

      BIIIIIIHHHHHH I HOLLERED!! #RIPAretha

      • akathexfactor September 10, 2021

        Lol 😅

    • HELLOKITTY September 10, 2021

      @Amber – hahahaha!!

  11. Hmmm… September 9, 2021

    The song is not good at all. It’s like no effort was put into making it. This seemed more like she made a song to go with a video, rather than making a video to go with a song. Video was okay. It’s fine that she’s inspired by Beyoncé, but sometimes it can be a little too much. She’s so talented though and she’s still finding herself, so in the future I’d like to really see what she can do, and what her sound is, rather than watching her do an elaborate Beyoncé impression.

    • Are You Kidding Me? September 10, 2021

      “This seemed more like she made a song to go with a video, rather than making a video to go with a song”

      Well said!

    • DioraCouture September 10, 2021

      yeah…i got a lot of “beyonce vibes”…plus, more near naked writhing and twerking

  12. Buzz Off September 9, 2021

    Slayed without 1000 excessive choreography dance moves 🤣🤣 👏🏽 👏🏽.. and the song is catchy asf..
    Learn from this Normani.. The visual ain’t nothing is the song is boring asf. LAWD, HAVE MERCY 💅🏽💅🏽

    • Ugghh September 9, 2021

      Not that this has anything to do with Normani at all, but since you brought her up. Chloe who has ever right to do so, but she showed way more skin and àss than normani did in her video..

      Y’all just saying shît at this point. Both are talented and will be more than you will ever be.

      Just say you’re an insure angry bîtch as a comment instead of giving opinions. It makes more sense

      • BUZZ OFF September 10, 2021

        Normani not taking off her clothes still ain’t gon make her learn to sing and hold a Note Chileeee .. find a better excuse than this one.. 💅🏽💅🏽 LAWD! HAVE MERCY!

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 September 10, 2021

        Normani took EVERYTHING off and cuddled NAKED with Cardi B! Are you BLIND?!

    • Dc September 10, 2021

      And Chloe still won’t peak at 14 hot 100 like normani so what’s to learn Chloe never had a top 50 hit with her sister or Beyoncé payola

  13. Tori September 9, 2021

    DAMN❗This was NOT what I was hoping for, this was awful. It’s only 2 minutes, the video is a cluster fück of colors and p**** with a tidbit of high fashion but not enough to carry this prelude of a bonus track. Y’all kep saying she was coming to kill Nomani but if this is what Chloë has to offer, they’re in the same boat with Normani still being a better flop 🤷🏾‍♂️❗

    • Freshprinceee September 9, 2021

      Too many ideas in the video.

      Those Couture gowns she wore have no business in this video.

  14. Diabetes UNBOTHERED September 9, 2021

    Song was only 75% as good as I expected but the video is 25% better than I was expecting.

    Hopefully Mercy becomes Top 20 despite not being as good as it COULD have been. I was expecting Chloe to GO AWF not even vocally but in terms of mere creativity songwise.

    Video makes up for the little bit that the song lacks. Still better than anything Normani. 😁

    • Are You Kidding Me? September 10, 2021

      I can’t believe I’m agreeing with you, but Chloe is too talented to be putting out…this. Any of the girls could put out this. NONE of the girls could do a song from their previous albums.

    • Are You Kidding Me? September 10, 2021

      The Wild Side and Motivation videos had more creativity than this, despite both songs being “ehh”.

  15. Are You Kidding Me? September 10, 2021

    As a fan of both of them, I feel that their “different” take on pop, R&B and folk genres were refreshing.

    I was expecting so much and this…..sounds like something Ciara would have done in 2005. It’s a song to twerk to for 5 seconds but it’s not..amazing.

    I have to say based on this and Wild Side, what I need from these new girls is VOCALS.

    If I was in the game, I’d observe what everybody else is doing and go the exact opposite way.

    I think if your song cannot stand on its own without a video, then it’s not a song you should be releasing. Your music should have people pulling out their phone to Shazam it.

    Something else I’ve noticed is NOBODY in this music industry has an ear for music. Forgettable songs that are not single-worthy get chosen as singles, while masterpieces are underrated album cuts.

    I have no problem with a women finding herself sexually and being liberated, but I do find it odd that both Normani and Chloe are going this way. Especially for Chloe, it’s not “on brand”. She’s not a Disney girl, but her sister is and it’s very jarring. Chloe got a lot of backlash for “being too s***” on social media and that’s because there wasn’t a precedent for it. She was always covered or tastefully dressed.

    I also..don’t get why she went solo. There were more songs she and Halle could have done from their album and just because she was shooting Little Mermaid doesn’t mean it’s time to do your solo thing when there are still gems on your album with your sister.

    The timing of this solo music is odd to me and I am not here for it.

    • Becky Goodhair September 10, 2021

      Halle didn’t want to s lut it up. She prolly sensed the push toward less “fabric” on their debut album and opted out?

  16. Livelife&Learn&Forgive September 10, 2021

    This girl had no identity what so ever. Ever looks the sound and everything screams I’m gonna copy and paste from beyonce. She’s boring and only way to sell the song is s**.

    • Farrahs Luggage September 10, 2021

      Agreed. Even having Bey’s mom in the video? Trying too hard

  17. SuxMyCockiness September 10, 2021

    I love the song and video! I think it’s going to do well especially after the VMAs performance. Live performing is her strongest quality. I just love the rawness and authenticity in her energy 😁 Super excited for the album!

  18. Credits September 10, 2021

    It’s having a vocalist on a murdabeatz produced track for me…..

  19. J September 10, 2021

    MY MUTHAFUCKIN EDGES!!! 💀💀💀💀😬🙅🏾🙅🏾🙅🏾🙅🏾🙅🏾🙅🏾🙅🏾🙅🏾

    LAWD HAMMERCY 🥵🥵🥵

  20. Patsy September 10, 2021

    Yaaas Chloe and Bree runway stomping on camonkeymilas neck! We love to see it chille❤️

  21. Gleaux September 10, 2021

    Imagine being in the studio and listen to this song thinking it’s a great song… LOL! This is a mess!

    • Farrahs Luggage September 10, 2021

      It sounds very Beyonce….which isn’t saying a lot

  22. Liam September 10, 2021

    This is 🔥🔥🔥

  23. Rina September 10, 2021

    I feel like, This was just too overly sexualized, laying on the ground, legs spread touching your p***Y? was that necessary? seems like trying too hard. Theres otherways to be s*** without doing the most. the song seems to soft for hardout choreography like this. but nevertheless as long as shes happy with her creation lol

    • AnonymousTruth September 10, 2021

      That leg spreading part was tewwwwwww much. I know she extra and likes to live her best stripper life, but she ain’t need to do that. She should know a whole heap of people gon turn their nose up at that part.

      Now I’m nervous for the VMA Performance because what will the girl do with her p*$$y next 😂🤣😂

      But I have to admit other than that.. I thought this video was fire ! She extra as hell, but I knew that. The verses on the songs are awful , but maybe they’ll grow. Think she must’ve wrote that sh*t herself … and demanded no help . Just a guess, because I’m sure more experience r&b writers could’ve come up with better verses than that.

    • HELLOKITTY September 10, 2021

      @Rina – “This was just too overly sexualized, laying on the ground, legs spread touching your p***Y? was that necessary? seems like trying too hard” — I agree and I said something similar. All of these women want to be present themselves like wh0res.

  24. Fabulouso September 10, 2021

    She’s better w her sister tbh,

  25. #Chole💋DESTROYED💩mani September 10, 2021

    I seeing Queen B in her! A princess is born! Future Star ⭐️ Normani can’t related to

    • Farrahs Luggage September 10, 2021

      Good luck getting this to chart in the top 70 🙂

  26. Keith September 10, 2021

    Cute, dance record. Something for the club. I’m ok with that if Chloe is in it for the long haul. Now I want to see how she translates this choreography to the stage. Among these new girls, Doja is the current performance standard. Let’s see what Chloe brings on Sunday…

    • Farrahs Luggage September 10, 2021

      DOJA?! LMAOOOOOOO!! She can’t put on a performance with her weird shaped body and paid for streams

  27. Farrahs Luggage September 10, 2021

    It’s not bad, but it’s giving “trying too hard”

  28. Farrahs Luggage September 10, 2021

    There is no creativity in this video. Where’s the storyline? What’s the reason the man turns into stone? Clearly she is Beyonce’s protege because this was a mess. Just booty popping and no artistry.

  29. Fufu September 10, 2021

    Not feeling any of it. the sexiness is cringey, the song is insipid. A solid 4/10.

  30. Learn from this September 10, 2021

    Yeah I need a re-shoot on this video. Slutty and tacky. I needed a pleasure principle or I’m glad, style moment from Chloe. Even Ciara’s body party is a master class in sensual. Do not let your handlers ruin your solo career with lazy videos.

  31. HELLOKITTY September 10, 2021

    So the women of today all want to appear like wh0res and sl^ts is what I’ve gathered from this video. Did you see what she was doing in the video especially at the end when she SPREAD EAGLE and touched herself. This crap is just beyond disgusting.

    Everything is about s3x and NOTHING about talent. This isn’t going to get her ANYWHERE but at the bottom of every list.

  32. Sandra September 10, 2021

    Much like the Normani situation, the visuals were better than the song, and these visuals i didn’t quite get.
    On a side note. Bree Runway looked stunning!
