Chloe X Halle – “Drop” Video
Chloe and Halle Bailey have performed for Michelle Obama and are signed to Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment, so their stardom is all but guaranteed. It helps to have a fire debut single like “Drop,” though. The song is a gathering cloud of fidgety rhythms and melodies that strikes me as futuristic R&B gone spaghetti western. So it’s fitting that director Andy Hines shot the video at Big Sky Movie Ranch, where Django Unchained was filmed. Sonically and visually, it’s as stylish and forward-thinking as Beyoncé’s own recent material; consider it musical haute couture. The video debuted at The Fader today, and you can watch it below.
