So I have to admit I have been following these amazing young ladies since they were teenagers on Facebook and YouTube videos making covers of Beyonce songs. I’m serious, I am a HUGE fan. These girls worked their butts off and impressed Beyonce herself, and became the first act Bey signed to her label. She taught them to take creative control of their own album. I loved how they worked and made it slowly but they are hitting the prime now while Halle is in her senior year and coming into adulthood, just turning 18 on Tuesday March 27th. (Chloe will be 20 on July 1st.)
Taking creative control they did, many people doubted them because here are these small young girls, how could they come up with any music that would make a difference, and they proved the naysayers wrong. They are apart of the generation who is standing up for their creativity and their own voice. Their debut album ‘The Kids Are Alright’ that came out with a mini show to showcase their music. The two wrote all the songs on the album including the theme song Grown from ‘Grownish’ and Warrior from ‘Wrinkle in Time’, while Chloe produced almost the whole album. They credit their take charge motivation to their parents who have taught them that they can do anything they put their mind to.
While they have played parts as children on different television shows and movies, nothing major, they have made their true acting debut in FreeForms “Grownish” with Yara Shahidi playing her character, , friends Jazzlin (Chloe) and Skyler (Halle) the track star twins. They got the part, because they are actually friends with Yara and while onstage accepting for Beyonce at the BET Awards, the producer Kenya Barris thought how they would be perfect to be on the show.
These young sisters with the show and new album out, they are proof that the younger generation still multitasks and that the younger generation is all about standing up and following their dreams. They take their experience and what happens and create magic. They have no problem saying a song might have sucked when they tried it the first time around. They write songs that are true to them, their hearts and their songs are like their diaries.
Haven’t heard of them? Then you need to definitely go check them out! They are my Thursday review, but can I count them as my Feminist Friday as well? These girls are dope and I know going to even higher places. I cannot wait to see where they go next or what they do next because their album is awesome.
Whats your favs from the album? Mine are Warrior (of course), Fall, and Drop, but this is definitely an album you can listen to from the beginning to end.
