Chloe Bailey Covers UPROXX's August Issue
After gaining recognition with her sister as the singing duo Chloe x Halle on YouTube, a record deal with Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment followed suit. Then came their debut project, 2016’s Sugar Symphony, followed by the spotlight-earning The Two Of Us in 2017. The trifecta was secured in 2018 with their official debut album The Kids Are Alright, a career-solidifying body of work that documented a coming-of-age story laced with moments of brute honesty and impressive displays of strength. It was a breakthrough that earned the Bailey sisters two Grammy nominations. Even with this decade-long list of achievements and accolades, there are certain aspects of present-day Chlöe that even her earliest supporters did not see coming.
"I am so happy people care about what I'm doing. Ninety percent of things out there about me are complete lies and rumors, but I love proving people wrong…One day, I hope people can really get to see who I truly am as a human being as opposed to this facade of a person that they think I am."
