Chlöe Bailey Responds To All The Beyoncé Comparisons

"I'm so grateful."

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.

Something that I try to mention, as much as possible, especially when it comes to married and long-term couples is, if you want to go the distance, it's not just the "big things" that you've got to stay up on; it's the little things too. Something as simple as you being a morning person while your partner is a night owl can affect everything from quality of sleep to quality time to your sex life. That's why, when it comes to couples who have different sleep patterns who still want to have a fulfilling sexual dynamic, I'm all about encouraging them to do what is at the foundation for all successful relationships — compromise. Sometimes that means that an alarm clock needs to be set or someone needs to initiate some, umm, stuff (more on that in a bit) in order to get the juices flowing (pun intended and not intended).

Her most recent project, the 2020 EP Jaguar stayed in the mode of jazz while also infusing sounds that are reminiscent of the '70s.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"
