Chlöe Bailey’s solo debut studio album ‘In Pieces’ had a disappointing opening week on the Billboard 200. The 14-track album released March 31 enters the charts at no. 119 with a total of 10k equivalent album units sold.

Concerned fans blamed the album’s abysmal performance on her management, and called for Chlöe to leave Beyoncé, who signed Chlöe and her sister Halle to her Parkwood Entertainment company in 2015.

‘Beyoncé literally hates her lol didn’t do anything for the album couldn’t even give her a feature and she not even opening up for her during the tour [crying face emoji] Chloe need to leave that label,’ one person wrote.

‘Someone get Chloe a proper record label and a proper manager. Idk what good Beyonce has done her career,’ added another Twitter user.

Others pointed out the discrepancies between social media love/hate and real life.

‘Another example perfectly showing Twitter love/hate holds no weight in real life. I’ve seen tweets praising her that have over 100K likes and yet she she barely pushed 10K copies where are those “fans” [facepalm emoji] y’all let her flop so bad.’

Another person noted the album performed better than Chlöe and Halle’s joint debut studio album The Kids Are Alright, which peaked at No. 139 on the Billboard 200.

‘Based on minimal promo run, scrapping previous singles, the hiccups & social media blunders this isn’t that bad. Also this charted higher than Chloe X Halle’s debut album TKAA. A lot of their musical success is down the line & never really around the initial release. Not shocked.’

Chöle released ‘In Pieces’ on Friday (March 31) with features from Missy Elliot, Future and Chris Brown. Her collaboration with the latter received negative comments from social media users given Brown’s history of violence against women.

‘We’re failing Black women in music if they feel like they have to collaborate with a known abuser in order to chart,” one person tweeted.

‘We will absolutely not be streaming,” wrote another person. “Catch you next time though.”

In response to the backlash, Chris Brown questioned why cancel culture only had smoke for him and not ‘white artist that date underage women, BEAT THE FUCK OUT THEIR WIVES, GIVING BITCHES AIDS.’

‘OH. That’s right.. THEY ARE YOUR BUDDIES [smirk emoji] NO MORE FAKE LOVE FROM ME,” he continued. “STAY OUT MY WAY OR GET RAN OVER SIMPLE AS THAT!”

Do you think her collaboration with Chris Brown hurt her album’s performance?
