Chloe x Halle have shared a stripped-down version of their single “Forgive Me.”
The sisters recorded their performance during quarantine in their backyard tennis court that had been transformed into a forest-like stage.
The live performance was part of Variety‘s Power of Young Hollywood virtual program on Thursday.
In an introductory speech before their performance, Chloe said, “Women are incredibly powerful, and even though the world tends to underestimate us, we all know our worth. I think it’s really special how two young Black girls – my sister and I – can create something from nothing, especially in a male-dominated industry.”
She added, “A lot of the songwriters are men, a lot of the producers are men, a lot of the engineers are men, but it’s really fun taking that narrative and completely screwing it up and being like, ‘Hey, we can do it all, as well.’”
“In the midst of this crazy year of 2020, we want our music to bring peace and healing for listeners,” said the sisters.
