The nominations for the 61st Grammy Awards were announced Friday and our favorite R&B duo were nominated! Chloe and Halle Bailey are up for Best New Artist, and Best Urban Contemporary Album for The Kids Are Alright.
“IS THIS REAL LIFE?!?!?!?!? we are in SHOCK. can’t believe this. 2 GRAMMY NOMS. So grateful, wow God is amazing,” they shared in an emotional Twitter post.
Adding, “God is aamzing!!!! We are in SHOCK. Thank you all for listening x supporting. We put out hearts x souls into this music. This is crazyyyyy.”
Chloe x Halle first came on the scene in 2013 after the pair posted a rendition of “Pretty Hurts”, which caught the attention of Queen Beyoncé herself. Not long after, the Atlanta sisters were signed to the singer’s Parkwood label. This past year, the 20- and 18-year-old sisters debuted their album The Kids Are Alright, and opened for Beyoncé and Jay Z on the couple’s On the Run II tour. They also star in the Freeform sitcom Grownish</em, which will return in January 2019.
The 2019 Grammys will air on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, and will broadcast live on CBS Television.
