“It’s the [tongue emoji] for me,” Gunna wrote, reposting an Instagram photo that Chlöe shared of herself licking the mic mid-performance. But as Chlöe puts it in her original caption, she had no idea she even licked the mic until after her debut solo performance last week.
“i swear i didn’t even know i licked the mic til after i watched the performance back 💀💀🤣😅☺️,” she wrote.
Bailey has yet to respond to Gunna, but the response to her debut solo single surely hasn’t gone unnoticed. Since its release on Sept. 10, “Have Mercy” has earned over 15.6 million YouTube views, and the track itself debuted at No. 28 on the Billboard Hot 100 on Monday. The track marks her highest-charting single ever, as Chloe X Halle’s “Do It” previously peaked at No. 63 last year.
