Without a doubt, Chloe x Halle have set a new standard when it comes to performances with their iconic tennis court videos. Not to mention their impeccable “style, energy, voices” and being in full control of their careers as Beyoncé‘s proteges. 

The “Do It” singers graced the October cover of Cosmopolitan, where they explained the name of their latest album, UnGodly Hour, which peeled back their adolescence years from their 2018 debut, The Kids Are Alright. 

“It’s okay to accept all that you are, all of your layers,” Chloe explains. “You at the ungodly hours.”

The album was released a week later than expected in June, following the police-involved killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, which ignited protests over systemic racism across the country. 

“Music has been such a healer for the Black community since the beginning of time,” Halle told Cosmopolitan. “Maybe it could help some people distract their minds from quarantine and what’s going on in the world today with hope and positivity.”

And it looks like these girls will have plenty to distract them with upcoming roles in films. Chloe recently wrapped production for Russell Crowe’s thriller, The Georgetown Project, and Halle is preparing for her breakout lead role as Ariel in the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid
