Chloë is riding high with the success of her singles “Treat Me” and “Have Mercy” and it appears she likes to live that way too. In a recent Open Door episode for Agriculture Digest, the singer and actress showed off her Los Angeles high rise with a view that would make anyone jealous.
When you first walk into the apartment, you are hit with a beautiful entryway that features an oil canvas painting of Chloë and her sister Halle Bailey.
“A friend gave me this oil canvas painting of us. We were performing at Global Citizen and I love it so much because it really just shows us in our element and chill and she’s my best friend,” she said. Continuing along the hallway, the 23-year-old stopped and shows off another painting. This one is an abstract painting from her “Have Mercy” video. While she thinks it’s kind of weird to have photos of yourself in your home, she believes you can get away with it if it’s done “artfully and tastefully.”
Shortly after, she highlighted another still from the “Have Mercy” video. This time she was on the roof and she revealed an embarrassing story behind it. “Fun fact, I fell almost off of the roof,” she said. “It was a great experience. I will always remember it. I will never forget that.”
The apartment has two bedrooms, but she converted one of them into her music studio.
There’s no bed in it, but there is a sleeper sofa for when she has people stay the night. The room also has another photo of her and her sister. “I always have her around me because no matter how far or near we are, I just always like having a piece of her with me,” she explained. The studio also has an armoire that is filled with the singer’s handbags.
Chloë’s favorite colors are blue and yellow and you can see those colors throughout her home. But her favorite thing about her home is the view, which is no surprise there. Her apartment has floor-to-ceiling windows in the living area as well as her bedrooms.
Her living room consists of a cozy couch, chairs, and typically a huge whiteboard, which she said she put away because it had her tracklist on it. She also has a massive display of photos that were outtakes from a shoot she did a year ago.
“Not conceited, but I just love it because it’s artful and it’s me,” she laughed. “And whenever I’m in sweatpants and hair-tied and I feel like, eh, I just look at that, I’m like okay, she’s a little somethin’, somethin’.”
She also has LEGOs that she works on, which she said calms her down. The Grown-ish star credited her godmother for designing her living place and giving it an “RB” vibe, which stands for “rich bitch.” That vibe flows into her bedroom with a bed that is “fit for a queen.” “I’m obsessed with my bed. Every time I lay in my bed I feel like a queen. My Godmom did the most amazing job.” Another favorite thing in her bedroom is her hidden shoe rack.
When it comes to her kitchen, Chloë described it as a place where “I don’t cook” due to her busy schedule. However, she does like making smoothies with her Nutribullet.
Last but not least, Chloë took us out to her balcony where we got an up-close and personal view of L.A. She admitted that she likes to sit on her balcony and reflect on her life decisions. “This is where the deep thinking goes down,” she said. “Sometimes have a nice glass of wine. Sometimes just chill out. I love it here.”

Chlöe has single-handedly reimagined how to wear dreadlocks thanks to her stepping outside of the box with her hairstyles. The singer along with her sister Halle Bailey began their loc journey when they were children, and while their hair is beautiful as is, Chlöe has shown that loc versatility is a realm she plans to master.
In an interview with Teen Vogue, the “Have Mercy” singer credited her mom for having confidence in wearing dreadlocks. “I definitely have to give props to my mom,” she said. “Because ever since I was about three years old, I've had locs. I've grown up in Atlanta, Georgia, and I thought nothing was really different with my hair from the other kids. Definitely, I realized early on in the industry, having locs wasn't really normal. But I feel like when you are confident with yourself, and you own it, then everyone else has to catch up to that. And I'm so grateful to be given a platform as a young Black woman with locs.”
Honing in on that confidence translates into Chlöe's recent hairstyles, which include extensions from curly to bold hair colors. Get into the hair versatility below:
The singer blew fans away after she rocked blonde locs in her “Have Mercy” video. While she never shared why she decided to go blonde after rocking her natural brown color for so long, it was clear to everyone that this was just another way of showing her personality outside of her sister after the two of them have been in a group for so long.
Last Halloween, the 24-year-old singer/actress dressed up as Jada Pinkett Smith’s character Niobe in The Matrix: Reloaded and sported Bantu knots similar to the character. In the first series of photos she posted on Instagram, Chlöe captioned it, “Welcome to the matrix…lmao this my last one yall.” In the second series of photos, she captioned the post “if this wasn’t a costume, i’d still wear it.”
The Grown-ish actress shined like a “disco ball” at the 2022 Grammy Awards. Chlöe pulled out the baby hairs and wore her locs slicked back in a high, voluminous ponytail. In a series of photos, she swung her ponytail from side to side giving us angles.
During Grammy weekend, Chlöe attended the Recording Academy Honors presented by The Black Music Collective. The singer was giving glam and sophistication as she sported a big curly ‘fro paired with a sexy black gown. She captioned her Instagram post, “what’s the tea?”
For the 2021 American Music Awards, she debuted her red hot locs on the red carpet while wearing a cut-out black gown. That night, she performed her hit song “Have Mercy.”

Chlöe Bailey is blowing up as a solo artist while finding herself along the way and she is OK with that. We’ve watched Chlöe and her sister Halle Bailey grow up before our eyes from cute teenagers to beautiful women and with all the eyeballs on them, Chlöe is learning to be comfortable in her newfound fame particularly on social media.
The “Have Mercy” singer spoke with Charlamagne Tha God on his Tha God’s Honest Truth talk show about dealing with social media fame and her mental health.
"I am learning that I have to be full before I can give myself to others," the 23-year-old said.
"My mental health is very important. And when you constantly feel like you have to please people and put others before you, you will start to feel very insecure. I'm learning that it's OK to put myself first sometimes, and I will only give out love and only share love and then just keep it at that."
The über-talented star recently caught backlash for a now-deleted video that showcased her sucking on a lollipop.
Fans bashed her for trying too hard to be sexy, however, the singer took it all in stride. “In the beginning, it didn’t affect me. I’m human, of course, it affects me sometimes, but the reason why I deleted it wasn’t because of what people were saying, it's just I didn’t want people to go on my page and just see that.”
She added, “Social media is whatever. I’m 23, I’m a grown woman and I think it’s so cool how we can find ourselves and I’m finding myself right now and figuring out what serves me best. I’m just doing it under a microscope while all of you all get to do it without anyone watching.”
While she may have deleted the video, that doesn’t mean that it stopped the singer from posting sensual photos and videos.
In a November 30 post, Chlöe showcased her backside in “Have Mercy'' booty shorts and a sexy cutout dress on the 2021 AMA’s red carpet.

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.
doing “too much” is my specialty 😋🥰— Chlöe (@ChloeBailey) October 13, 2021
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.

When Chlöe Bailey first stepped onto the scene with her sister Halle as the Beyonce-backed duo Chloe x Halle, they commanded everyone's attention with their powerful yet angelic voices. Now, they are all grown up and working on separate endeavors, but that doesn't mean they are growing apart.
Rumors of the sisters splitting up first began when they created separate social media accounts this past January after sharing one together for 9 years. Then, it was announced that Halle Bailey would star as Ariel in the live-action remake The Little Mermaid (slated for a 2023 release) and more recently, Chlöe released her bass heavy solo single "Have Mercy" with a jaw-dropping video attached.

The 23-year-old also made her solo debut at the 2021 VMAs performing the hit single and Halle was also there presenting her big sister to the masses.
During her recent appearance on The Real, the Grown-ish star opened up about her solo journey calling it "exciting" but "scary" and how Halle is by her side.
"...even though I have been promoting this new song, my sister has been there with me every step of the way. I always see her every day like even at the VMAs we were like this there (crossing her fingers). So, it doesn't really feel like I'm alone and even right before the performance, Halle introduced me and across the stage I was able to just look out at her and I was almost in tears before I even started singing. And I was like OK, even though I feel alone sometimes, I'm never alone 'cause she's right there and I hope she feels the same with me."

Following Chlöe's epic performance, the sisters linked back up to perform at the Global Citizen concert reminding their Chloe x Halle fans that their bond can never be broken.
"I think we both needed that performance that night. I can't explain it. Right before we went on, Stevie Wonder was performing. We were backstage, we're like, 'oh my goodness.' We felt the love and the high energy and we were both so nervous because you know in this pandemic, we haven't really been out in front of an audience performing together like that so being out there, it just felt so freeing. I got to look over to my left and see my beautiful sister and her voice is out of this world and being able to harmonize like that together, it was just... it was the best feeling."
The dynamic duo continues to wow fans whether they are singing together or apart and they also have each other's backs, no matter what. Chloe and Halle prove time and time again what it means to be a sister and how to grow up while growing together.

It's been a little over two weeks since Chloe Bailey, aka Chlöe, snatched our wigs and released her debut solo single, "Have Mercy." From the music and visuals, to the way she and her sister Halle support each other, we can't get enough. And this week, our good sis taught us a couple more things when she appeared on Vogue's Beauty Secrets. There, she gave us all the details to what she calls "Glowy Chlöe," her on-the-go everyday skincare and makeup look.
In the video, she detailed her routine, products, and beauty secrets. Now, we know that sometimes watching makeup tutorials can be kind of overwhelming, so we've recapped it all so you can give it a try.
Let's start with skincare.
Although her face was already clean she used Neutrogena's Skin Balancing Micellar Cleansing Cloths to remove any unseen residue.
Then, she massaged her face with a roller and Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Serum to help her "baby cheeks" transform into the "snatched" look she desires. She gives Vogue an insider tip, saying:
"You always wanna go up [regarding the direction of the face roller]. Because we don't want sagging skin ladies."
Also, when she has a bit of extra time or she is getting glammed up, Chlöe takes a few moments to hold ice cubes under her eyes. This can help reduce puffiness and swelling. With a smile, she says:
"It's like a little subtle difference but I notice it and I feel so much better and confident."
Finally, she applies sunscreen and rosewater spray by Mario Badescu. And just like that, the skin is glowing and moisturized. She tells Vogue,
"I really love not overcomplicating my skincare routine because I have very sensitive skin. If I do too much I break out, if I'm stressed, I break out. So, I like to keep it to a minimum."
Same sis, same.
"I think it's really important to have time for yourself, where you take care of yourself and your skin and your body. And as I'm 23 right now I'm learning that it is OK to not work so much and take that time into me."
Now, onto makeup.
She starts the next part of her routine with a really important element, brows. With an Anastasia Beverly Hills pencil and a Benefit pencil, she lightly fills them in, using concealer and brow gel to perfect the shape.
Next, the "Have Mercy" singer gets real friendly with the concealer. She uses it under her eyes, above her lip, and the bridge of her nose with the help of her Beauty Blender and a spritz of rosewater to blend it out.
Later, she moves to the contour, which is still Fenty, by the way!
And Chlöe sets it with a powder bronzer before moving on to blush, highlighter, and lips. She says:
"I love to use the same blush and bronzer on my eyes and cheeks, especially when I travel and I don't have space to pack too much makeup."
Finally, we move on to the part I was most interested in, because her lip gloss is always poppin', and apparently that's on purpose. She says:
"My favorite part is the lips, gotta have a nice juicy kissable lip. I'm learning to do a matte lip instead of a gloss because I like to kiss the mic a lot when I sing."
Almost done, but we can't finish until we wrap our hair.
Now, you might have thought that was the last step, but as we know Chlöe is the full package. And that means she takes care of everything, and that includes her hair. Before finishing her routine, she adds the final touches to her hair by using Pattern Argan Oil.
"It's pretty simple and easy and I think that's why I really love having locs. It [the color] feels like my alter ego in a way and I feel like it brings out my skin."
After watching this video, there were definitely a few products I wanted to buy and techniques I wanted to try! To watch the full video and do the same, check it out here.
