Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins and Rozonda ‘Chili’ Thomas, aka the surviving members of TLC, just dropped their first single off the group’s upcoming as-yet-untitled final album. The duo (RIP, Left Eye) used Kickstarter to generate funds and is even letting fans help decide the album’s title. A little over two years and $430,255 later, the album is set to release June 30.
The new song, “Way Back” features Snoop Dogg and feels just like your old middle school dances, but with a modern vibe. It’s got a thumping beat that’ll make you want to shake your ass, along with wavy, dreamlike synths, and of course, T-Boz’s sultry, smooth vocals and all that Chili sexiness.
“Don’t you ever think / Back on all that other shit we went through / You know I remember,” they sing. “Don’t you ever wish / One day we could reminisce / It feels like we were just together/ ‘Cause we go way back.” They also name drop Prince, Marvin Gaye, James Brown and Michael Jackson.
