Chlöe Shines On The Title Track Of Her Debut Album In Pieces – The anticipation for Chlöe Bailey’s debut studio album is high. The singer and Swarm star dished out a handful of singles over the past two years as she prepares to establish herself outside of Chlöe x Halle with In Pieces. From the trunk-rattling empowerment anthem, “Have Mercy,” to the Gunna-inspired, “For The Night” ft. Latto, the 24-year-old star already has one of the most anticipated projects of the year.
In the past few weeks, she’s unveiled the cover art, release date, and the tracklist for the project. While several of the previously released singles will land on the project, the carefully curated features have fans in high anticipation. Missy Elliott, Chris Brown, and Future will contribute to the project while Chlöe holds down the rest of the project on her own. In Pieces will undoubtedly showcase her brilliance in its entirety, from her overlooked production skillset that Chlöe offered throughout her career to her penmanship.
Just days after unveiling “Body Do,” Chlöe unveiled the final single from her upcoming project. This time, she shared the titular track, which closes out the project. Unlike her previous releases, “In Pieces” is an outstanding display of her vocal range. Soft, warm piano chords lead the percussionless production with dashes of vocal ad-libs as Chlöe delves deep into her vulnerability.
The titular single speaks directly to the core message of In Pieces: removing the stigma attached to being vulnerable. Chlöe recently explained this in a new interview where she detailed the objective with the project. “The message with this album is that it’s OK to not have it all together … because none of us are perfect and as well-kept as some of us might seem,” Chlöe said in an interview. “We’re all in pieces, we all have things that have broken us down … We all have fears. We all have scars but it’s just who wears it the best.”
I wanna be where you are, I want you to need me like the fire needs the spark
I need to see it in your eyes
To lose myself completely like a full moon in the tide
