Chloe Bailey’s solo music era is finally here. One half of the R&B sister duo Chloe x Halle—Chloe just released her debut solo single, “Have Mercy,”along with an accompanying proactive music video featuring various illuminating ensembles and flawless make-up.
In the video, directed by Karena Evans, Chloe portrays sorority girl with a dark secret leading a cult to seduce and turn men into stone. “Have Mercy” also features albeit brief but welcome surprise cameo from Tina Knowles-Lawson playing the role of a sorority mother kind of- as she sits in a car holding up binoculars, she spots fraternity brother. There’s also an appearance from actor and model Rome Flynn, who plays Chloe’s ill-fated love interest.
Candidly, Chloe expressed her angst and excitement about going solo via her Twitter page. “Honestly guys I was a bit sad last night because I’m so scared and anxious,” Chloe wrote. “I just really want you all to know i’ve been pouring my heart into this and can’t wait for you to hear. It means a lot to me, it’s finally almost here.”
