Chlöe Bailey Danced With Beyoncé 20 Years Ago: Look + Listen

On Friday (4.07,) Chlöe Bailey sat down with Jimmy Fallon and talked friendly sibling rivalry with her sister Halle, working with Beyoncé on the set of The Fighting Temptations, and her upcoming debut solo album, In Pieces.

During their Tonight Show segment, the host shared a photo of Bailey and Beyoncé taken two decades prior on the set of the comedy film, where she played the younger Lily. “She was so nice to me and even at the wrap party she’d hold me, and we’d dance the night away,” said Bailey, who credited Queen Bey as one of the major influences in her career, adding “That was the moment my love really began for her because she was so kind to little Chloe.” 

Over the years Bailey has developed a solo career outside of Chlöe x Halle, the R&B duo she formed with her younger sister. This spring, the musician/actress is set to hit the road for the “In Pieces Tour” supporting her debut solo album of the same name, and her 11-date trek marks her first headlining tour a solo artist.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the big screen adaptation of ‘Little Mermaid’ actress talked about the biggest risk she took on making her record, stating “There were so many people in my life — I’m not talking about online internet trolls, but people I was close to — who told me I couldn’t do this. Who said I wouldn’t be good enough to do this on my own,” she said. “That was scary as shit actually doing it, because there were times where I believed them. I believed the negative things being told to me. I just had to keep trusting myself, and it’s still hard even now to try to not doubt myself and talk myself out of the blessings that I’m receiving.”
