Beyonce’s signees, Chloe x Halle debut their new track and video “Drop,” and the sisters prove that they can do more than cover songs.
The duo gained traction after covering Bey’s “Pretty Hurts” — gaining over 11 million views in the process and the attention of Beyonce’s label, Parkwood Entertainment. Between their harmonizing, haunting voices and a dope rap verse, Chloe x Halle certainly made sure to make a mark with their first self-written track. The video also features a lush green scenery — the same used in Django Unchained according to MTV. In it, the two perform some kinetic synchronized choreography.
In an interview with Elle Magazine, Beyonce recently talked about her ever-growing roster of artists.
“It’s exciting, but having the power to make every final decision and being accountable for them is definitely a burden and a blessing. To me, power is making things happen without asking for permission. It’s affecting the way people perceive themselves and the world around them. It’s making people stand up with pride,” she said. “I want to take all my resources and give these artists the support of the best, to nurture them and allow they to be who they really are.”
With Queen Bey behind them, it’ll be no time before they’re breaking the internet. And we certainly can’t wait to hear more from the two artists. “Drop” was produced by Chloe with guitar from Halle.
