Exclusive: Emblem3′s “Chloe” Really is About a Certain Kardashian Sister
Khloe Kardashian may not be returning to "The X Factor" to host Season 3, but there are some Season 2 contestants who clearly still harbor fond feelings for her.
A source close to last season's fourth-runners-up Emblem3, who recently signed to Simon Cowell's Syco label and released their debut single "Chloe," has exclusively confirmed to Yahoo! Music's Reality Rocks that the single really is a love letter to the youngest and tallest Kardashian sister.
Some of the telltale lyrics to "Chloe" include: "Chloe, I know your sister turns everyone on/But you're the one I want"; "Front page magazine/Everybody says that she's the queen"; "She likes the flashing lights/I love the way that you like candlelight." And so on. The entire song is an ode to a girl who lives in her sister's shadow (a la Jan to "The Brady Bunch's" Marcia Marcia Marcia). And it seems that Khloe is the modern-day Jan Brady, in Emblem3's eyes.
"The guys would never admit it because they're all shy about it, but 'Chloe' is totally based on Khloe Kardashian," a friend of the hip-pop trio reveals. "One of the guys in particular was saying that she's the coolest and hottest of the sisters. That's where they got the term 'She's a Chloe' from. It's about girls like Khloe Kardashian, who get overlooked because they've got a friend or a sister like Kim who steals all the attention."
As for the titular name's slight misspelling, the source says: "They spent a lot of time with Khloe on the show, so they didn't want to make it too obvious. So they spelled the song with a C. But it's still pretty clear, when you listen to it."
This news probably rules out any Emblem3/Kanye West collaborations in the future…but it's pretty darn cute.
