However, before the songstresses stole the show, they addressed the Black Lives Matter movement. Black Lives Matter has been gaining momentum ever since the unjust and untimely death of George Floyd at the end of May.
Chloe addressed the delayed release of Ungodly Hour in light of the resurgence of the fight for racial justice: “It wasn’t right; we didn’t want the attention on us. We wanted to shine a light on what matters the most to us at this time.” She continued to say, “These past two weeks have been very overwhelming; we’ve been hurting, we’ve been in pain. But we’re also very hopeful, because our peers are raising our voices and we’re letting ourselves be heard and not backing down and taking no for an answer.”
Chloe x Halle have been quite active in using their social media to spread awareness and garner support for the Black community.
