Chlöe Bailey Says That Comparisons to her Sister Halle Bailey are "Shallow" and "Disturbing"

·2 min read

Just last year, Chlöe Bailey released her debut solo single, "Have Mercy," after putting out two full-length albums (which are full of bops, BTW) as part of the Grammy-nominated R&B sister duo, Chloe x Halle. Halle has also ventured out with her own solo projects, including Disney's upcoming live-action rendition of The Little Mermaid. So, while these sisters shine bright together, they've proven that they each have their own star power to watch out for.

As the latest digital cover star for In The Know, Chlöe kept it candid when she was asked if there were any drawbacks to entering the entertainment industry with a sibling.

"There were no downsides on our side. But I will tell you what annoys me a lot," she started. "I hate when people online constantly try to compare my sister and I. It is the most shallow, most disturbing thing. It was very off-putting to know how people would try to put two young Black sisters who love their craft so much and love each other so much, how they try to pit them against each other just because they’re different in some ways. So that’s the only downside."

Clearly, she is having none 👏 of 👏 that 👏 when it comes to people constantly pitting her against her own sister. The Baileys are not shy when it comes to showing their support for one another, and Halle has even defended Chlöe in the face of online trolls time and time again.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Halle revealed how Chlöe's support inspired her to play Princess Ariel in the live-action Little Mermaid movie. She also said that she and her sister experience each other's wins as if they are their own. "Whenever we're apart, I feel like my right arm is missing," Halle told Cosmo. "I say this all the time—I'm not sure what I would do if I was by myself going through this whole thing."

So, let this be a healthy reminder that the "Ungodly Hour" singers have nothing but love for each other, no matter what projects they take on.
