Halle Bailey, one half of the iconic R&B music duo Chloe x Halle, has been making a name for herself after snagging her coveted role of Ariel in Disney's upcoming live-action remake of "The Little Mermaid". She's also gearing up to star in "The Color Purple" musical movie alongside folks like Ciara, H.E.R. and Taraji P. Henson.
The singer has been active in the entertainment world ever since Beyoncé signed her and her sister, Chlöe, to her Parkwood Entertainment record label. After recording two albums — 2018's "The Kids Are Alright" and 2020's "Ungodly Hour" — and snagging multiple Grammy awards with Chlöe, you'd think that'd be enough for fans to know about Halle. But curious minds are still wondering if the talented singer has a special someone in her life.
Who Has Halle Bailey Dated?
In regards to the dating world and romance, Bailey is generally private. The artist has not dated anyone publicly in the past. She did, however, speak candidly on her type of man in an Instagram live video with Chlöe. In the live stream, she said, "Number one, me and Chlöe don't like the same kind of guys. She likes pretty boys." On the other hand, Chlöe said Halle likes "a guy with some sort of confidence and swag," to which Halle replies, "Doesn't everyone though?!"
Who Is Halle Bailey Dating Now? Meet DDG
Bailey's dating life has been a hot topic lately after she was publicly seen hanging out with rapper and YouTuber DDG (Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr.) at Usher's concert in Las Vegas in January. A video obtained by "The Shade Room" showed her and DDG sitting close together enjoying the concert. At one point, Bailey even turns to DDG laughing over something Usher did on stage. Usher posted pictures on his Instagram story of the pair together backstage after the concert ended, tagging their Instagram handles in the post.
Months after their public outing, DDG confirmed his rumored romance with Bailey in an Instagram post wishing her a happy birthday. "Happy Birthday to the beautifulest, the flyest, the sweetest ❤️ love you forever," he wrote in a caption, alongside a series of their selfies and a video of him putting an iced-out chain on the singer.
Bailey's new boyfriend, like her, has been involved in the music industry for some time now. In 2014, DDG launched his YouTube channel and started making music shortly after. Alongside the success of his YouTube, which now has 2.66 million subscribers, DDG released his first studio album, "Valedictorian," in 2019. His 2020 single, "Moonwalking in Calabasas," spent 11 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 81. The song went platinum in June 2021.
Now that the news of Bailey and DDG's relationship is out, maybe the two will tease some new music like rumored couple Chlöe and Gunna.
