While Halle Bailey has been busy being “part of your world” on the set of The Little Mermaid Live, big sister Chlöe Bailey teased the release of her debut solo single, “Have Mercy.”
Back in July on her 23rd birthday, Chlöe channeled her grown woman in a TikTok video where she seductively danced in what appeared to be a visual teaser for her forthcoming single. The snippet amassed nearly 20 million views and to date, the sound has been used in more than 800,000 TikTok videos.
this is 23… HAVE MERCY COMING SOON ???
On Monday (Sept. 6), in the spirit of her mentor, Beyoncé, the Atlanta native released another sneak peek and revealed that the “countdown to have mercy begins now.”

The cover art to Chlöe’s highly anticipated single features the “Do It” singer flaunting her curves in a jaw-dropping ensemble that leaves very little to the imagination. Leaving fans screaming, “have mercy,” she even hinted at dropping a trailer for the “Have Mercy” video. Of course, the Beyhive was also quick to point out similarities between Chlöe’s cover and the album artwork for Beyoncé’s debut Dangerously In Love.
