Chlöe Bailey kicked off her ‘In Pieces Tour’ in Chicago! Right before ending the opening night, she addressed the backlash that she has been receiving for her debut album on social media. 

“Thank you all for supporting the motherf—ing album. F— what the f— everybody gotta f—ing say, they can kiss my black a– because I know you guys love me, and love is all I need,” Bailey told the crowd. “Thank you for loving me, thank you for being here.

This comes amid the negative comments she received on social media about some of the features on ‘In Pieces’ including Future’s spot on ‘Cheatback’ and Chris Brown’s on ‘How Does It Feel’. Apart from that, people have also been vocal about the album’s performance on the Billboard 200 chart this week with the album ranking at No. 119. 

Previously, she also spoke about the issue during her appearance on ‘The Tamron Hall Show’, where she explained why she removed all socials off her phone and let the management team take over.

“I realized that I was changing myself for other people and their opinions and what they were accusing me of originally, which was not being myself and being forced, that’s what I was tuning into because I was so occupied with what people thought about me, but the second I deleted the apps off my phone, I was mentally so much clearer because you’re doing what makes you happy,” Bailey said.
