Beyonce's protegees Chloe x Halle release 'Ungodly Hour' LP, ecstatic fans laud the 'black excellence'
Much to the keen anticipation of fans, sisters and musical duo Chloe Bailey and Halle Bailey have just released their new album 'Ungodly Hour' by Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records. The new 13-track sophomore record follows their debut album 'The Kids Are Alright', which released in 2018.
Chloe x Halle have spent a year working on 'Ungodly Hour', which they co-wrote, co-produced and co-engineered with useful inputs from their mentor Beyoncé. Chloe recalled in an interview with The Associated Press that when they sent the song to Beyoncé, she "said that she loved it and didn't have any notes". "(We) were like, 'Oh wow!' She must really like it because she always sends notes, which we appreciate and add in most of the time. I'm really proud of this album and if she loves it, I hope everyone else loves it too," she added.
The two sisters debuted into the music scene as teenagers. Bailey said of the album, "We’re growing as young women. We're finding ourselves through experiences — whether it’s through love, through heartbreak, getting over any insecurities we may have — we just wanted to put that into the music."
The LP was received with a lot of love by the abundantly exuberant fans as well as other celebrities. American singer-songwriter and dancer Kehlani and Chloe x Halle had a Twitter exchange over the LP. "Love y’all!!! so proud for real!!!!" wrote Kehlani while the sisters responded with, "Love youuuuu!!!!" Fans were also quick to comment on 'Ungodly Hour' already deeming it, "Album of the year." As tweets started pouring in, many fans said they were blown away by the LP. Fans showed their appreciation with comments like, "YALL DEVOUREDDDD", "Yall keep raising the bar this era!!! I love it" and "YALL DID THAT WOWWWW THERE ARE NO WORDS." One fan said, "I'm just gonna leave #UngodlyHour on repeat." Another fan said, "That’s what the f**k I’m talking about. A roll out, an era, a group, a vision. Black excellence and I’m HERE for it." Another commented, "What we needed to remedy this year." One more said, "I’m crying at how good this is." Another added, "I loved it so much already on my playlist."
