In an interview with Essence with her sister Chloe, Halle Bailey revealed that she had been a ‘fan’ of DDG ‘for years’.

The 22-year-old told the publication: “I grew up being on YouTube and would always see the young Black creators and was constantly inspired by them. He was one of them.

“I completely forgot about him. But then I saw that he was dropping music, and I really gravitated toward this one song. Coincidentally he messaged me – and the rest is history.”

Is Halle Bailey related to Beyoncé?

Many fans have speculated that she is related to pop star Beyoncé. However, this isn’t the case.

Although Beyoncé has referred to Halle and Chloe Bailey as ‘family’ on multiple occasions, the pair are simply signed to the ‘Halo’ singer’s record label, Parkwood Entertainment.

The sisters were snapped up by Beyoncé back in 2013 when they covered the artist’s hit ‘Pretty Hurts’ on YouTube.

Back in 2021, Halle and Chloe Bailey chatted to E! New’s Daily Pop and said they were ‘constantly’ inspired by the ‘Crazy in Love’ singer.

Revealing the advice Beyoncé gave the pair, Chloe said: “What she told us is the ‘no scroll rule’.  Don’t read any comments. Don’t read what people have to say about you.

“And right now, I’m learning that outside opinions and other people’s validation don’t make me worthy or tell me about myself or how good of a person I am.”
