Chlöe Bailey Says She Had Separation Anxiety From Sister, Halle, Reveals She Questioned Her Singing Ability After Going Solo, + Talks Being Compared To Beyonce: There Will Never Be Another Queen
Chlöe Bailey is opening up about her career as a solo artist.
While visiting The Tamron Hall Show, singer and actress Chlöe Bailey, 23, spoke about separating from her sister, learning to love her body, and the best advice she has received from her mentor, Beyoncè.
Bursting on the music scene with her sister as pop duo, Chloe X Halle, Chlöe Bailey says going solo 'happened very naturally' but sooner than she thought. She said,
"My sister got the role of Ariel and I'm so proud of her and with that, she had to go to London for about eight months and you know it almost turned into two years because of the pandemic so with that we were separated. It was really hard for the both of us, we had separation anxiety."
"We both knew one day we would do our own projects we just didn't know it would come so fast. We're not twins but we operated like we were."

Chlöe revealed to deal with the separation, she created he own music. She eventually felt confident to release it however, that did not end the anxiety. She added,
"I had to do a lot of soul searching. I had to talk to myself a lot and remind myself that my voice is special and what I have to say matters because I did have a bit of separation anxiety where I was like 'Am I even good on my own?' I was even doubting my singing voice and my ability to perform because I love to perform, I love to dance, so there was a lot of that.
But the insecurities did not stop at her voice. The 'Have Mercy' singer says although she loves her 'backside and curves,' she was still insecure about her image. She said,
"This is the best feeling...when beautiful women of all ages come up to me and say you inspire me to be more confident in my body. That means everything because you don't know how long it's even taken me to feel confident in this skin I am in. Even today, I struggle with my weight - all of that - so the version that people see of me where they think I'm ultra-confident is not me on daily."
"I'm 23 now and I'm growing into my own. Even though I have a baby face and on the inside, I feel like a child, but on stage, I feel like the grown woman that I am and I think for me, I've always been in tune with myself and I'm insecure a lot of times but I've always loved my backside and my curves and who I am as a woman."
"And I think it is so special and important for women to admire themselves, and believe in who they are and not wait for the world to tell them they're beautiful and special."
Following her MTV VMAs performance last month, many started comparing the 'Grown-fish' star to her mentor Beyoncè. On the comparison, Chlöe Bailey said,
"One, that's the greatest compliment I could ever receive, and anytime someone says that I get filled and overjoyed but I will say there will never be another Beyoncè, there will never be another queen."
"I hope that one day I can reach just an ounce of the success she has and I'm just so grateful to be mentored by her and just take jewels and learn from her."
When asked what's the best advice Beyoncè has given her, Chlöe said,
"To trust my gut. and that what I feel matters and what I believe in matters. And I always love her because she never tries to force her opinion on my sister and I."
