Just over two months after SZA had her monumental moment with her S.O.S. studio album in December, Chlöe is set to have her’s. SZA’s sophomore studio album spent four weeks as the No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Additionally, her album landed her the honor of Billboard Woman of the Year. For this, she did an interview with the publication and spoke about a variety of topics including other women in music. While discussing this, SZA mentioned that she thinks Chlöe has her best days ahead of her. “I love Chloe Bailey and her commitment to perfection — I feel like she’s going to be a legend,” she said.

When news broke of this quote, Chlöe saw a tweet referencing it. She immediately quoted the tweet to return the favor and offer her own admiration to SZA. “love you always @sza. the feeling is mutual,” she said. Later in SZA’s interview, she also showed love to other female musicians like Taylor Swift, Lizzo, Beyoncé, and more. But, the Chlöe praise felt particularly appropriate and timely. Chlöe is currently in the midst of an album rollout for her solo debut LP In Pieces. Ahead of its March 31 release, Chlöe is set to drop the album’s second promotional single “How Does It Feel” with Chris Brown tonight (Feb. 24). This will just be another big step ahead of her highly anticipated full-length release.

Why Chlöe’s Moment Is Now

Since embarking on her solo career away from the Chloe x Halle tandem with her sister, all of Chlöe’s solo singles have been epic. “Have Mercy” is Sept. 2021 and “Treat Me” in April 2022 were both great introductions to her sound as a solo act. Next, “Surprise” in June 2022 and October’s “For The Night” continued to elevate her artistry and songwriting. Then last month (Jan. 27), her lead single “Pray It Away” for In Pieces saw Chlöe successfully begin to build a theme and world for her album.

Although she has not yet made the tracklist available for In Pieces, fans are still excited about what can potentially come from this release. Along with the Chris Brown song, listeners are hoping to see more sensational R&B collaborations for the LP. Perhaps maybe even her friend SZA could join in the party. Either way, though, SZA’s prediction for Chloë’s future s a safe, yet sound one. Chlöe has all the pieces to be a superstar, and her upcoming project will surely show that.
