Chloe x Halle for Essence

The duo released The Kids Are Alright, their first full-length album, last March. Filled with exceptional lyrics and melodic guest appearances from JoeyBada$$, Kari Faux and GoldLink, the album mesmerized a new legion of fans. So, it’s no surprise the Recording Academy of Arts & Sciences tipped its hat not once but twice for their debut effort — best new artist and best urban contemporary album.

“As Black women, we are feeling incredibly empowered. We’re not afraid to speak our minds—and we owe that to all of the beautiful Black women who came before us and are killing it right now,” Chloe says. “We wouldn’t change our skin color for anything. We love being Black women and are so proud to say that.”

Style is yet another form of self-expression Chloe and Halle have been utilizing that is garnering plenty of admiration. Their looks are often coordinated in ways that are edgy and thought-provoking rather than over-the-top and contrived. Couple that with their regal waist-length locs. They are coming for those Grammy's.

"We want to be able to put the spotlight on Black female creatives in front of the camera and behind the scenes—from photographers, stylists and more.” — MoAna Luu, Chief Content & Creative Officer at ESSENCE.
