Chlöe Bailey has responded to the online commentaries that followed the underwhelming performance of her solo debut album ‘In Pieces,’ which sold a disappointing 10,000 copies in its opening week.
While seemingly unbothered about the low sales, Chlöe explained her thought process behind the LP.
“In pieces was about letting go & trusting myself. i’ve enjoyed every moment of it and i love everyone who listened to it,” Chlöe wrote on Twitter Monday. “Tour starts tomorrow in chicago and im so ready to perform these songs for yall.”
During the opening night of her In Pieces Tour in Chicago, Chlöe took a moment to address her critics and also challenge her fans to stream the new album.
‘Make sure y’all are supporting the muthafuckin album. F-ck what everybody got to f-cking say. They can kiss my Black ass,” Chlöe said.
“Because I know you guys love me and this is all I need. Thank you for loving me,” she added. “Y’all don’t know how much you mean to me.”
As we reported earlier, many fans on social media blamed Beyoncé — who signed Chloe and her sister Halle Bailey to her management company in 2015 — for failing to promote the album on her platforms. They also clamored for the ‘Swarm’ actress to leave Parkwood Entertainment.
Others attributed the album’s abysmal performance to her decision to work with Chris Brown given his history of violence against women.
For what it’s worth, Chlöe’s good friend, Druski wants her to chin up because In Pieces sold more than his albums. “She got better album sales than me, I’m on iTunes too it’s better than mine,” Druski tells TMZ in reaction to the low sales.
