Chloe x Halle dropped the futuristic video for the title track from their 2020 album “Ungodly Hour” on Wednesday night (Feb. 24). The eye-popping clip directed by Alfred Marroquín (Rosalia, Sech) opens with the sisters dressed in head-to-toe blue vinyl outfits inside a dark, mysterious laboratory, posing and twitching to the song’s heartbeat rhythm as the lights flicker around them.
The scene then turns to a shallow pool, with both singers laying in the water wearing nude-colored, bedazzled body suits in between flashes of them in a spare expanse rocking silver gowns and Erykah Badu-like facial hardware. The whole thing feels like a glimpse of dystopian, fashion-forward future set to the song’s soothing flow and vocals, which have them warning, “You know that I, I heard it all before/ You’re hesitant, but you could give me more/ I know you like to play those silly games/ When you’re done, call my name.”
The sibling duo recently revealed that have “so many exciting things coming” including from their individual Twitter accounts, which they launched last Thursday. The R&B singers showed love to their 1 million Twitter followers before showing off their new individual handles: @chloebailey and @HalleBailey. Chloe asked her 226,000-and-counting followers what her new header should be while writing “where the flowers bloom” as her freshly minted bio. Meanwhile, Halle is giving her 169,000-plus followers a “peek into my happy place” where “only positivity and love is allowed.”
