Chlöe Bailey Responds To All The Beyoncé Comparisons

"I'm so grateful."

Chloe Bailey

Ever since Chlöe and her sister Halle Bailey have been creating their own identities outside of their group Chloe x Halle, Chlöe has faced Beyoncé comparisons. Modeling her performance style after Beyoncé is no surprise since both Chlöe and Halle are signed to the "Formation" artist's label Parkwood Entertainment and so there's no doubt Queen Bey has influenced them in more ways than one.


When the 23-year-old singer/ actress stopped by The Breakfast Club, she was asked about the comparisons and what Bey thinks about it.

"She says she's really proud of me. That's not something we specifically talk about but I just love her and I'm happy she sees this light inside of me, and my sister as well."

As far as how Chlöe feels about the comparisons to Beyoncé, she says:

"I'm grateful. That's the biggest compliment anyone could possibly give me. I have so much more work to do to even get there—to even get an ounce of where she is."

The "Have Mercy" singer has been promoting her new solo single for a couple of months now, but after her performance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last week, Chlöe was hit with backlash after people accused her of "doing too much" on stage.

However, the Grown-ish star clapped back at the criticism on Twitter after she tweeted "doing "too much" is my speciality 😋🥰."

As the singer continues on her journey to solo stardom, a similar path that Beyoncé was on, who better to lean on when faced with such adversity?

"I love her so much and we talk about any and everything. I'm just so grateful to have her stamp of approval and she always gives me words of encouragement—you have no idea how much that means to me. It's like, 'OK, that's pretty dope.' Because she's been there, she's done that, and to know the advice that she's giving me is exactly from the place I've been is pretty cool and inspiring," Chlöe told The Breakfast Club.
