5 things we love about Chloe x Halle

Chloe x Halle are having what you'd call a "moment."

The just released The Kids Are Alright, a mellow, unmistakable fresh album that takes us back to summer nights spent with friends. These girls give us magical, free-spirit vibes with their unique vocals and celestial harmonies. One of the tracks, "Warrior," was just featured on the soundtrack for A Wrinkle In Time. If that wasn't enough, the sisters can also be seen on Freeform's Grown-ish

Because we love to gush and spread the love, here are five more reasons why we love these creative women.

1. They're *real* sisters 
Their stylish locks and soulful voices will having you thinking they're twins, but Chloe and and Halle are actually almost two years apart! Chloe is 19 (she'll be 20 in July) and Halle just turned 18.

2. They started out on YouTube 
Just like many of our fave artists, these two ladies started their career by making YouTube videos of them performing musical covers in their living room. They joined the platform in March 2006 and they now have over 900,000 subscribers! 

3. Beyoncé is their mentor (*gasp*)
The sisters' cover of Beyoncé's "Pretty Hurts" landed them a record deal with her label Parkwood Entertainment/Columbia Records in 2013, where she then became their mentor! By spring of 2016, they released their Sugar Symphon EP and supported Beyoncé in Europe on her The Formation World Tour that summer.

4. They wrote and executive produced their album
Just as with their 2017 full-length, The Two of Us, their music is mostly written and produced by just them. In a world full of ghost-writers, the young duo is sure to pave their own way with their creativity.

5. They're visual artists
They released a 10-minute short film to go along with their new album, featuring six of their songs with clips from Moonlight actor Ashton Sanders. You can check it out here (warning: explicit content).
