Rejoice in new TLC.
It’s time to go “WayBack.”
R&B will see the end of an era when TLC releases their final album later this year.
After T-Boz and Chilli announced the project in late February, it appears as if the fruits of their labor will actually see the light of day. Earlier this week, T-Boz took to Twitter to announce that new music from the beloved ’90s act will be previewed during this week’s episode of FOX’s series, “Star,” and indeed it did. On Wednesday night (March 8), a snippet of a song called “WayBack” was played during a scene from the series and it’s a slow-grooving R&B number that stays true to the pair’s classic sound.
Interestingly enough, “WayBack” also features a cameo from Snoop Dogg and is “most likely” to lead their forthcoming kickstarter-backed LP, which is due in June. T-Boz reportedly made the revelation in a tweet sent to a fan on Thursday night. The cut is the result of a collaborative songwriting effort by T-Boz and James Abrahart (Justin Bieber’s “Company” and Rita Ora’s “Body On Me”).
Back in October, the duo unleashed a double A-side “Joy Ride / Haters,” but the focus right now is all about “WayBack.” Some other potential cuts for TLC’s fifth studio album include “No Introduction” and “American Gold.”
