Chlöe has frequently been compared to Queen B throughout her rise to fame.

Chloe Bailey's launch as a solo artist has been much more of a marathon than a sprint, with the 23-year-old taking her sweet time with each and every single she releases ahead of her self-titled album's arrival later this summer.

To kick things off back in 2021, the vocalist shared "Have Mercy," followed by a sultry, microphone-licking moment during her MTV Video Music Awards performance that caught Gunna's attention, along with the rest of the world's.

After that, we saw a collaboration between her and the YSL rapper on his DS4Ever track, "you & me." Footage of the pair getting up close and personal during a shopping trip for the filming of the accompanying music video caused romance rumours to surface online, and though Gunna expressed interest, Bailey has maintained that she and the currently-incarcerated rapper are "just friends."

"Treat Me" came next on her lineup, followed by the equally sexy "Surprise," which finds Bailey asking listeners to "slip [her] panties to the side."

On Sunday evening, the Atlanta-born starlet took to the stage as one of the many performers at the 2022 BET Awards, not only singing her latest single, but also a rendition of Adina Howard's "Freak Like Me."

Bailey hit the crowd with "Treat Me" as well, which had audiences cheering her on in-studio and at home – including Beyoncé, who made sure to send her protégé a beautiful bouquet of flowers in celebration of her accomplishment.

"You killed it last night!" the Lemonade hitmaker wrote Bailey. "Making me proud. All my love, B."
