They signed to Parkwood Entertainment a couple years later, after their cover of label head Beyoncé's "Pretty Hurts" went viral. The Baileys appeared in Beyoncé's visual album Lemonade, and within a week of its release, they made their Parkwood debut with the five-track Sugar Symphony EP. Its most popular cut was "Drop," a song the Baileys wrote and produced. Later in the year, they were featured on Michelle Obama's charity single "This Is for My Girls" and opened for Beyoncé on European dates of the Formation world tour. The pair issued The Two of Us, a self-released mixtape, in 2017.
In March 2018, Chloe x Halle returned with their full-length debut album, The Kids Are Alright, anchored by the title track and the single "Grown," which was the theme song from the television show and Black-ish spin-off Grown-ish. Also included was the song "Warrior," which appeared on the soundtrack to the fantasy-adventure film A Wrinkle in Time. In 2019, they issued the singles "Who Knew" and "Thinkin Bout Me," both of which were also featured on Grown-ish. The duo's sophomore full-length, Ungodly Hour, arrived in June 2020 and featured production by Sounwave, Disclosure, Scott Storch, and others. Included on the album were the spotlight tracks "Forgive Me," "Do It," and "Catch Up" with Swae Lee and Mike WiLL Made-It. ~ Andy Kellman
