Chlöe continues the performance streak of her debut solo single “Have Mercy” with a lively rendition of the upbeat track during the 2021 American Music Awards. The R&B vocalist descended on stage on a giant swing, wearing a white leotard decorated with metallic plates and accessorized with a white, extended flowing cape. With an opera-inspired version of the song adding even more drama to the entrance, as she reached the stage her dancers helped the 23-year-old remove her cape and the show began.
Once the song started, Chlöe and the additional talent performed the sensual choreography on a smoke-filled stage. As the show continued, the singer opted for a dance break, highlighted by flashing lights and high-energy jumping, hair flipping, and splits.
As half of the sisterly R&B duo Chloe X Halle, the elder of the siblings has initiated a new branch of her artistry. She released “Have Mercy” on Sept.10th, branching out as Chlöe and exploring a new sound and style. The adventurous track debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart at No. 3 and in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 28.
“Even before the song came out, seeing how it was going viral online, I was stunned and so grateful,” she shared during an interview with Refinery 29. “I’m just so happy people are still bumping the song.”
