Chlöe on what female producers need from the industry: “We just need the opportunities”
Chlöe wants female producers to be presented with more opportunities. Speaking with Billboard on the red carpet of the Women in Music Awards, she said she was proud of Powerhouse honoree Latto and excited to fangirl while SZA accepted her Woman of the Year honor. She also praised Rosalía, recipient of the Producer of the Year Award, which she hopes she can get next year.
“Shout-out [to] the all the female engineers and producers because you all are incredible,” she said before mentioning her engineer Simone. “We have to support and uplift each other, which I’m really happy to be doing with my peers tonight.”
Chlöe also discussed her time at Billboard‘s producers event Tuesday, where she was “able to nerd out with all of these bad*** women.” When asked what the industry could do to better support female producers, she said, “We just need the opportunities.”
“I definitely think there’s a lot more than who are given opportunities. For me, the reason I got into producing as a young girl was because for sis and I, no producers wants to produce things for a 12- and 10-year-old. So I took matters into my own hands,” she continued. “I always loved math and science and had been a huge nerd with that, so it was fun combining my love of technology and music together. I executive-produced my album dropping in a month and there’s only two songs I didn’t produce.”
Chlöe’s debut album, In Pieces, comes out March 31, days before she kicks off her headlining tour.
