Halle Bailey is an undeniably gifted singer who continues to share her talent with adoring fans on social media. Yesterday (July 25), the 23-year-old rising star posted her cover of Billie Eilish’s single “What Was I Made For?”
Along with the video, she captioned her post, “I love this song and this echo filter a little too much.” In the comment section, one fan tweeted, “I’m not gonna know how to act when the album drops.” Another added, “You’re gonna have me cry when I first hear your debut single.” After starting her music career as a member of the Grammy-nominated duo Chloe x Halle with her older sister Chlöe Bailey, Halle has slowly shown she is one of the voices of the future. Fans of the “Do It” artist have recently questioned whether the young songwriter is slated to release a project after she uploaded a link to a site titled Halle’s Happy Place on the internet.
On July 15, Halle seemingly teased a new song when she shared a picture of a paper inside a studio that showed what appeared to be lyrics to a track.
In May, fans witnessed the range of the Atlanta native’s vocals when she starred as Princess Ariel in Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. Ahead of the film’s premiere, Halle spoke with British Vogue about her upcoming solo music, which she shared will be a mash-up of jazz and grunge. She also opened up about receiving guidance from her mentor Beyoncé.
After discovering them on YouTube, the entertainment mogul signed the sister group to her label, Parkwood Entertainment. Regarding getting advice from the Houston native, Halle said, “I just played her a lot of my songs, and she was really overjoyed for me. It’s really cool to have somebody as established and talented as she is giving you confirmation that the art you’re creating matters.” The “Grown-ish” actress continued, “She won’t outright be like, ‘This is what I think you should do.’ She’s very open that way. And to have that since we were 15 is something I do not take for granted.”
