ChlÃ¶eâ€˜s road to solo stardom will be in full effect at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards. The gold-selling artist, who records as Chloe x Halle, will take the Barclays Center stage to debut her first proper single, â€œHave Mercy.â€
The booming superstar has been teasing the release of the Murda Beatz-produced cut for more than a month, building recent buzz for it with a pre-save link on August 12.
â€œHave Mercy,â€ still unreleased, is billed as the lead track from her upcoming solo album, which yet has a title. Itâ€™s unsure if her Juneteenth remake of Nina Simoneâ€™s classic â€œFeeling Goodâ€ will make the albumâ€™s tracklist.
Other 2021 VMAs performers include Doja Cat, Lil Nas X, Lorde, Shawn Mendes and more.
This yearâ€™s MTV Video Music Awards airs Sunday, September 12 at 8 p.m. on MTV.
In other ChlÃ¶e-related news, she will play the Brooklyn edition of H.E.R.â€™s Lights on Festival. The two-day festival happens on October 21 and 22 and features H.E.R., Maxwell, Ari Lennox, Bryson Tiller, Joyce Wrice, and more.
