Chlöe Bailey and her sister Halle Bailey are Beyoncé’s proteges and while they hold a unique talent that caught the eye of Queen Bey, fans are tired of the sisters, specifically Chloë, being cast as a “baby Beyoncé.”
Chlöe’s first solo project without her younger sister Halle was just released today called “Have Mercy.” The sex-positive pop song is being received well by her fans, with some pleading to stop the comparisons.
To be fair, the music video accompanying “Have Mercy” does feature Tina Knowles, Beyoncé’s mom, and some feel that the artwork for the single is similar to Beyonce’s ’03 cover of Dangerously in Love.
Check out the music video and fan’s reactions below:
