Chlöe Bailey makes her solo debut at the end of the month and is giving fans a taste of what’s to come by sharing the LP cover art. Chlöe wears a blue Victorian-style dress while rocking red locs in the cover art as she clutches her heart in her right hand. After sharing the cover art on social media, the singer wrote a message explaining what the album down to the cover means to her.
“I saw a photo of a porcelain doll 3 years ago, holding her heart just like this, and from then, I said this will be my album cover… that same day I also wrote heart on my sleeve,” she recalled. “The beginning of a scary and exciting journey for me. This cover represents so much for me, down to the color of my hair. When I had red hair 1.5 years ago, it was one of the darkest times in my life. That’s why I never wore it again.”
After some digging, the singer seemingly confirmed that a fan found the porcelain doll she was referring to.

She then went on to explain her definition of “perfect.”
“I find the beauty in my flaws and how in actuality, that’s what makes me perfect.” She added, “I find beauty in all of the cracks that show people I’ve been broken down before, because I’ve gotten up every time. I wear my heart as my armor.”
She said that she hopes In Pieces will strike a chord with her fans and that they will be able to relate to her experiences as it could help them through their own.

“In Pieces is for the ones who behind closed doors are breaking and don’t know how much more they can take,” she wrote. She added, “In Pieces is for the ones who hold the people up around them while barely holding themselves. In Pieces is for the people who continue to get stabbed in the back, heartbroken by the ones they thought they could trust, but STILL that doesn’t change their heart and how they love. In Pieces is for the ones like me, who wear their outer shell so well that you’d have no idea what they’re going through.”
The singer continued, “I hope this project brings healing to those who listen, as it’s been completely therapeutic for me and I can’t wait to share my heart with you, literally.”
The singer has previously released “Pray It Away” and “How Does It Feel” featuring Chris Brown. In Pieces arrives on March 31. Take a look at the cover art below:
