We Can't Stop Staring At Chloe Bailey's Evolution On The 'Gram

She's now a badass, grown-ass woman and a force to be reckoned with — we love that for her.

Chloe Bailey

In case you ain't know, Chloe Bailey is our president. Joe Biden just ain't getting it and we can always depend on Chloe to do itttttt. The actress, record producer, singer, and songwriter has displayed the ultimate glow-up on the 'Gram and we love to see it! She created her own Instagram account on January 19, and it's safe to say we had no clue what we were missing out on. For years, we have been swooning over the dynamic duo that is Chloe x Halle with their angelic voices and superstar charisma.


When Beyonce is your mentor, the sky is only the beginning. In a unique turn of events, the sister duo decided to make separate accounts in an effort to continue blessing us with their Instagram Live sessions while Halle filmed her Disney live-action remake of The Little Mermaid in London. Ever since the self-taught musicians have been living apart, Chloe is learning more and more about herself every day. She told R29Unbothered:

"It's kind of forcing me to think and say to myself, OK, what do I really like on my own? How do I feel about this? Just with my thought process. And it's really been interesting. At first, in the beginning, it was very intimidating and scary... Because Halle and I wouldn't have done it on our own because we're each other's best friends. But I definitely think it was something necessary so that we can find ourselves individually. And for that, I'm really grateful."

One thing we are grateful for: Chloe's femininity. It is extremely empowering. The Grown-ish star broke Beyonce's internet when she joined in on the #BussItChallenge and had us all cracking our knees trying to keep up. During an interview with the LA Times she shared:

"I feel there's such power in women who truly love themselves and own who they are, whether they want to be completely covered or showing skin or whether they want to be outspoken or completely quiet. It's our right as women to choose who we want to be and how we want to be seen in this world and not be judged for it, because men can be all of those things and no one takes another look or says anything about it. I'm not really doing anything new, I'm just being myself."

Ummmm, let the church say AMEN and AMEN again!

Chloe Bailey is not the young girl we fell in love with. She's now a badass, grown-ass woman and a force to be reckoned with — we love that for her. Here's to Black women owning their power and realizing that evolution is the secret for the next step.

Five months into 2022 and already it feels like it has been a year. New levels come with new devils (new stresses) and though we are proud of our accomplishments in the year so far, as a team, to say we aren't in need of a vacay is an understatement. A part of recovery from burnout includes being intentional about how we approach our self-care practices.
