Another new release is Chlöe’s debut solo project, In Pieces. The project features the likes of Future, Missy Elliott and Chris Brown.

“It’s not a single it is a movement,” George told rolling out. “I don’t know if it’s the most important thing [I’ll do in my career], but it is the most important thing I’ve done up until now. It is the song that took all of these fractured pieces of me from childhood from everything and now, I’m in alignment. I’ve never been this clear, the channel has never been this clear, the art that’s coming through is clearer than it’s ever been.”
