It’s no secret that Chloe Bailey is anticipated to be the big thing in the music industry. And as Beyoncé’s mentor, she’s unstoppable. Stepping out of the dynamic duo with herself and her younger sister Halle, Chloe is starting a solo career and coming out swinging.
His debut single ‘Have Mercy’ and its accompanying music video have been the subject of discussion on social media. He then performed brilliantly at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards. And now, she is revealing some behind-the-scenes secrets in the music video shoot.

Bailey’s debut single and accompanying music video debuted on September 10 and currently has over 10 million views. Beyoncé’s defenses killed it in a sorority-themed music video with unmatched dance moves, artistic ensembles, and confidence through the roof in a song that conveys body positivity at the highest level. For Bailey, it was about making the woman the boss.

“Men can glorify ass in their videos, I want to do it in an artful, really fun and beautiful way,” she said mtv news. “It’s great how women can claim ownership of their bodies and not let the world do it and do it the way we want and it was really fun. I was really into shooting days I used to feel so beautiful and I look back and I’m like, ‘He’s not the same person, but it was fun for the moment. Imma tapped back into him sometimes, but it was really fun. “
Interestingly, Bailey says he finished the project in April. She says she has it in place for a bigger rollout, like her first performance at the 2021 MTV VMAs.
Chloe Bailey was not initially sold on the music video concept.
Despite the incredible rollout of the video and the backlash from fans, she admits she was a little hesitant about the video concept. The video was choreographed by Beyoncé’s former dance captain, Aisha Francis. Bailey’s creative director combined his and Bailey’s concepts for the music video. Overall, the goal was to create a scene of men in the trance of a woman’s aura.

“Andrew, who’s my creative director, we really wanted it to look funny and we both saw pink and we were trying to figure out what you know, and he thought of a sorority, “She tells. “At first I was like, ‘Huh?’ But then I saw the lights and for me, I like everything with a suspenseful twist. I love a story. I was like, ‘Okay, if we do witchcraft, can we go a little deeper into that somehow? Can add twist?’
Bailey says the whole point is to show off the magic of a woman. “And after watching the video, I wanted to make it all about ass, but in an artful way. I think it’s incredibly powerful how women with their bodies and their souls make men almost in a trance. And the way they carry themselves. So it’s really like wooing men and turning them to stone. So, it’s like modern-day Medusa.”
Bailey is currently in the final stages of preparing for her solo album. Of the over 100 songs she’s recorded, she’s narrowing it down to about a dozen.
