Chloe x Halle score their first Billboard Hot 100 hit with ‘Do It’

Atlanta sister duo Chloe x Halle made their first Billboard Hot 100 appearance this week with “Do It,” from their new album, “Ungodly Hour.”

The single landed at No. 83 on the chart, while the album, released June 12, debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart with 24,000 equivalent album units. The album also hit No. 11 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and No. 16 on the overall Billboard 200.

“Do It” garnered 5.9 million U.S. streams, which placed it at No. 6 on the R&B Streaming Songs list. 

The song is the first major radio success for the Bailey sisters, who are signed to Beyonce’s Parkwood label. 

“Ungodly Hour” is the follow-up to their Grammy-nominated 2018 breakthrough, “The Kids are Alright.”

Last year, Halle Bailey was cast to play Princess Ariel in the upcoming live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid,” set for release in 2021.
