As we know, Atlanta-born sisters, Chloe and Halle Bailey gained star-studded fame when they first caught the attention of Beyoncé with their viral cover of “Pretty Hurts.” From there, the sisters have been caught up in a whirlwind of success as Beyoncé took the duo under her wing and signed them to a $1 million-dollar contract with her Parkwood Entertainment Label; they had the opportunity to tour the world with their new mentor on the European leg of her Formation tour; the sisters have been front and center on the fashion scene as Generation Z style icons; and they have met the FLOTUS herself, frequenting the White House at Mrs. Obama’s request. As the year draws closer to an end, it would seem as if these two sisters would be putting on the breaks, right? Well, not even close.
“Telling you now, I can’t believe all that happened in one year,” 18-year-old Chloe begins in an interview with Metro.US. “[With the Formation tour], if we didn’t see clips or if we didn’t have footage of it, we would have never believed we did that.”
Recently the teenage sisters, who are currently on tour with Grammy-nominated recording artist, Andra Day, added another memory to 2016 as they had the opportunity to sing “Drop” on top of the Build-A-Bear float during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. “Drop,” the self-written/produced single was the first off of their EP “Sugar Symphony” that was released in April. Want to know the secret behind the song? Well, Chloe tells us in the interview that many people think that it is about a lover, “but it’s actually about a song. It’s a love-hate relationship with a song you can’t get out of your head.”
The rising superstars go on to say say in the interview that they have truly learned a lot this year, spanning lessons from what it is like being on tour with artists such as Andra and Beyoncé to simply knowing how to readjust when confronted with issues beyond their control, i.e., equipment stuck on a delayed flight instead of on stage with them. But, with their shining personalities and positive outlook on life, these gracious sisters were just simply “happy to have the adventures.” We can not wait to see what awaits them in 2017.
