Chlöe just shared a new trailer for her upcoming debut album In Pieces, dropping on March 31st this year. Moreover, this comes after news of the album’s completion and after she shared much excitement for it. “I turned in the album!!!” she shared to Instagram a couple of days ago. “Been crying tears of joy. 3 years in the making. can’t wait for y’all to hear … SOON!!!” With this newest post, the singer hinted at the project’s themes and aesthetic direction. Overall, it seems like the Bailey sister will bring a grand, lush, and personal statement to her fans.

“IN PIECES 3.31.23,” she captioned her post with a heart emoji (the real thing, not the pure red emoji). “My tears are like the water. my heart is like the sun. through chaos, beauty grows. there’s power in my pain,” she added. Furthermore, the short clip features a song snippet, album title, and release date. In the video, Chlöe stands in underwear inside a glass case. While posing and showing off her body and red locks, she stands among flowers, vines, and fallen leaves. As the video closes out, she sheds a tear and the glass case cracks. Also, the song snippet features gorgeous harmonized and manipulated vocals, a lumbering beat, and some distorted synthesizers.

“In Pieces” Collabs Catch Heat

Even though this is exciting news for any R&B fan, her rollout fell victim to some criticism as well. Most of it stems from the announcement of a Chris Brown collab set to drop later this week. Furthermore, many fans expressed disappointment at the 24-year-old working with a historically abusive artist. In fact, backlash to the team-up garnered such outrage that Chris Brown engaged in a lengthy Instagram rant calling out his haters.

While Chlöe hasn’t said much about that situation, she did recently clap back at claims that she Photoshopped performance pictures. “I love you too,” she replied to the a commenter who expressed doubt. “It’s the combo of a corset, latex, and the lower angle. I love my body when I have extra weight on me. I love my body when I get snatched because I’m dancing a lot. The videos match. Y’know I love editing but I’ve been working hard on my body. I take that as a compliment, thank you.” However you take the situation, let us know in the comments if you’re also excited for In Pieces.
