The kids are definitely alright!
After five years of honing their sound and developing as artists under the tutelage of Queen Bey herself, the sister-act Chloe x Halle released their debut album last Friday. And let me tell ya, this album has everything that is good in popular music: R&B ballads, pop anthems, electronic beats, and soulful harmonies, mixed with a bright-eyed edginess. Their single “Warrior,” the theme song for the Ava DuVernay-directed A Wrinkle in Time, is smart and sweet, fearless and beautiful. It’s full of the hope that Generation Z (that’s right isn’t it? Whatever, I’m old!) is giving the rest of the world right now!
For those of you wondering, “hmm, where have I seen them before?”
