Chloe x Halle on Quarantining Together and Getting Beyoncé's Stamp of Approval




"We always have her full support backing us no matter what we decide to do," Chloe says. "She gives us pieces of beautiful advice from time-to-time, but we are our own individual artists. She appreciates that and nurtures it."

Halle's grateful to constantly have Beyoncé remind them "how proud of us she is" and give them words of empowerment that "literally makes your whole day."

"She changes your whole perspective and reminds you that you are powerful, that you have the power, what you are doing is impactful and making a statement and you're doing something good for the world," Halle says. "So that definitely always gives us an extra rocket boost."

She adds, "As two young women who have always looked up to her since the beginning of time, that's like, 'Wow.'"

The sisters are also spreading that same kind of positivity and light to their fans (which totals over 3 million followers on Instagram alone!).

"We try not to get lost in the sauce," Chloe says. "We're just so grateful to have amazing supporters who support what we do and buy our music, and we're really grateful for that. Through it all, we just remain authentically ourselves."

That authenticity includes speaking out about social justice, which is a big part of their platform. "All we want to do is share the message of positivity, love and justice," Halle says. "As Black women, it's not just something that started a few weeks ago — it's been a part of our whole lives."

Besides releasing new music, shooting fashion campaigns and staging cool Spice Girl-themed performances (see their clip from the GLAAD Media Awards here), they say they're not focused on anything else — specifically dating — at the moment.

"At the end of the day, our safety is our priority, so we're not really leaving the house at all," says Halle about social distancing.

As for Chloe, she's focusing on herself. "It would be nice to have a cute little quarantine [crush], but that's not me right now," she says. "I'm really focused on myself and learning to love myself more. I think that you have to learn how to fully love who you are in order to give yourself to someone else, so I feel like this is a good time. I'm getting myself ready for myself and others."
