For most of us, the idea of Beyoncé acknowledging our existence (let alone becoming our IRL friend) is reserved solely for our daydreams – but not for this week’s fave sisters.

Chloe and Halle Bailey or chloexhalle to their fans have the privilege of being part of Bey’s elite squad of influential black women. The duo appear in her iconic Lemonade video album alongside tennis legend Serena Williams and our girlcrush Zendaya. Well. Jel.

As if that wasn’t good enough, the super talented sisters also tour with the queen herself as her support act. How frickin’ cool? Aged just 19 (Chloe) and 17 (Halle), this power duo are without a doubt #girlgoals…

They’re super talented

The sisters have been writing music together for almost ten years! When Chloe was aged ten and Halle was aged eight their dad started teaching them how to create basic songs, from that their talent blossomed. “The first few songs we wrote were horrible,” Halle told Rolling Stone Magazine. “But as time went on, they turned into something beautiful.” They taught themselves to play their instruments using YouTube tutorials with Chloe working on production and playing the keyboard, while Halle plays the guitar. The perfect combo right?

the revolution never ends #airmax #teamnike @nike 👊🏽

In 2006 the sisters started a YouTube channel posting their own music but also some amazing covers (like, AMAZING) and this is where the duo were spotted by Bey herself. The superstar heard their cover of Pretty Hurts – it’s seriously stunning, no wonder it gave her the chills – and once she realised the girls were unsigned, Beyoncé contacted them and immediately signed them to her record label, Parkwood Records. Since then, with Beyoncé and Jay-Z as their mentors, they have released their own original song Drop. Pretty awesome, we know.

Celeb fairy godparents

Having toured with Beyoncé as well as being signed to her label, it’s natural that Chloe and Halle have become pretty close with the Knowles-Carter clan. Not only do the girls look up to Bey, they also consider her a friend. Jay-Z even got the girls involved in his birthday present to his wife earlier this year! He got some of Beyoncé’s closest friends and idols to dress up in her iconic Lemonade costumes, with Chloe and Halle featuring alongside Michelle Obama and Kelly Rowland #lifegoals.

happy #BEYDAY ☺️💜🎊 beyonce.com

They’re so humble

You’d think the fame might get to their heads but nu-uh not for these girls. They still remain completely humble and can’t get over how lucky they are.

The last few years have been a total whirlwind. Despite being hugely grateful for the success Bey has brought to them, Chloe and Halle still have a do-it-yourself attitude – something they attribute to their dad. “This music industry is so dominated by men and older people. You have to look into yourself and say, ‘I can do this. I’m bomb too. I can have wonderful ideas,” Chloe explains.

happy father's day to the best father in the world. we love you so much ❤️

Super sisters

The sisters have always been super close, born just a year and a half apart, and they’re each others’ biggest fans. “I’m so thankful to have my sister to look up to,” Halle tells Teen Vogue. “She is my role model in every aspect of my life. It’s amazing to have that support system right beside you every single day.” N’awww.

I guess the chemistry between the two sisters explains why they’re music is so great. Harmonies *that* good can only have been mastered over years and years performing together, from school plays to sing-a-longs on long car journeys. Imagine getting to share your rollercoaster life with your bestie who just happens to be your sister. IDEAL.

sister beach day!! 💕💕

You’ve probably heard about Kesha’s legal battle with her former producer, Dr Luke; she alleged that he sexually assaulted her, but because of her recording contract she was unable to release any new music without his involvement. Then her case was dismissed. Sad, sad stuff.

For years we were denied any new Kesha music, having to settle for playing her old material on a Spotify loop, all the while wondering if she’d even WANT us to be listening to it.

But, dear Animals, Kesha is BACK. Her (amazing) new single Praying dropped on 6 July and, since then, we’ve had two more tracks from the glitteriest lady in pop. Here’s everything you need to know about Kesha’s comeback so far…

Praying is her first single in nearly four years

And my goodness was it worth the wait. “This song is about me finding peace in the fact that I can’t control everything — because trying to control everyone was killing me,” Kesha wrote in her Lenny Letter. “It’s about learning to let go and realise that the universe is in control of my fate, not me.”

It was written by Ryan Lewis

Shouts to @bottomlineguitars with the BEAUTIFUL custom 7 string! Winning!

The Grammy-winning Macklemore star said he was “honoured” to be part of Kesha’s return to form.

Kesha’s new album, Rainbow, is on the way

A post shared by Kesha (@iiswhoiis) on

In fact, it drops on 11 August, and includes two collaborations with Eagles Of Death Metal plus one with Dolly Parton.

“The reason I wanted to name this record Rainbow is because I kind of associate healing with kind of going back to my child-like mind, before I got all twisted and turned and beaten and heartbroken and all those things,” Kesha explained in a recent interview.

“Everything was magical and I didn’t understand it and the world was so big and beautiful and I trusted everyone and everything and it was just so perfect and wonderful.”

Praying isn’t the only therapeutic song on the album

Of Learn To Let Go, Kesha said, “This song is about washing away what doesn’t work for you… Vulnerability has never felt so freeing and cathartic.”

Woman, meanwhile, is “an anthem for anyone else who wants to yell about being self-sufficient and strong.” Kesha did, however, take the time to remind us that her inner wild child is still there.

“It’s important for me that people know that there are a lot of emotions on my new album Rainbow – but the wild fun energy that first inspired me to perform has not, and will never, go away,” she wrote on Instagram.

She has plenty of support from her fellow celebs

Just take a look at some of the tweets championing Kesha over the past few weeks:

Long may the glitter queen reign.

With all of their annoying habits, weird AF traditions and truly gifted ability to embarrass you at any given moment, your family is definitely one of a kind. But even though siblings and parents can be the most annoying people on the planet, you wouldn’t change ’em for the world would you. WOULD YOU?

Yep, we’re afraid you can’t choose your family – but you can dream. So if we could wave a magic wand and sprinkle them with some star quality and a shedload of cash, which celebrity clan do you think yours would be? Would you be chilling with the Styles set, jetsetting with the Hadids, cashing in on that Kardashian/Jenner magic or taking high tea with the Royals?

You’d better take this very scientific quiz to discover which A-Lister dynasty you really belong to.

1. Which of these sounds like your fave family dinner?

2. It’s Quality Family Time Night tonight. What have you all got planned?

3. What are you lot most likely to argue about?

4. If you HAD to take on one of the family chores, which one would you go for?

5. Pick something to inherit from your ’rents

6. Choose an embarrassing dad joke. Yes, you have to pick one.

7. For the ultimate family holiday, where would you head off to?

8. What’s the first thing your family would do if y’all won the lottery?
