Chloe X Halle shot to stardom after their cover of “Pretty Hurts” went viral 2013, which landed them a million-dollar contract with Bey’s label and a role on her star-studded visual album “Lemonade.” On July 25, they’ll reunite with their mentor, opening the North American leg of Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s On The Run II Tour. Here’s what else the sisters have been up to.

After releasing an EP and a mixtape, the girls came out with their debut album, The Kids Are Alright, in March. The album features 18 original songs all written and executive produced by the pair.

3. They collaborated with Willow Smith.
The singer-songwriters paired up with Willow Smith on the single “Lonely Road” off of Willow’s 2017 album The 1st.

5. They performed at Coachella.
Chloe and Halle performed songs off of their new album at this year’s Coachella with the help of a female backing band.
