Robin Harper/Parkwood/PictureGroupAfter beginning as recurring characters on grown-ish, Chloe X Halle have been elevated to regulars on the sitcom, and they’re very excited about season two, premiering in January.
The Beyoncé proteges portray twin track stars Jazlyn and Shylar in the black-ish spinoff, which stars Yara Shahidi.
Chloe, 20, and her sister Halle, 18, began shooting the new season after wrapping up the Beyoncé/JAY Z On The Run II tour last month. They felt grown-ish was destined for success when they began shooting season one.
“You could just feel the love and the positive energy whenever we would film,” Chloe tells ABC Radio. “You just knew it was going to be something pretty special and when it premiered, and seeing how the world reacted to it, that was just confirmation.”
“We love Kenya Barris,” she continues. “We’re so grateful that he allowed us to be on that show and play Jazlyn and Skylar. They’re like our alter egos. They’re so sassy, and we just love our cast mates.
Chloe X Halle released their debut album, The Kids Are Alright, in April. They’ve received numerous award nominations, including Best Album at the Soul Train Awards, Best Group at the BET Awards, and Outstanding New Artist at the NAACP Image Awards. They’re also being called positive role models. Chloe says they’re humbled by the praise.
“That still stuns me because my sister and I are just two regular girls from Atlanta who love music and entertaining,” she says. “To even be put up on that pedestal saying we’re role models is truly inspiring to me. It makes me want to do better.”
You can see Chloe X Halle in season 2 of grown-ish, premiering January 2 on Freeform.
