Ahead of their fifth and final album, TLC come through with visuals for “Way Back.”
Fans have been eagerly anticipating the conclusion to the TLC story for quite some time, but now the Kickstarter-funded moment is upon us. The one-time trio’s final self-titled album will hit stores on June 30.
While it’s unclear whether surviving members T-Boz and Chilli will feature any posthumous contributions from Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopez who passed on in 2002, special guest Snoop Dogg makes the album still feel like a family affair on “Way Back.”
The nostalgia buttons are pushed hard on the song, and the visuals match it perfectly. While T-Boz and Chilli are both in their mid-40s, the type of throwback house party seen here feels truly timeless. With choreography that boasts some subtle nods to classic TLC routines and T-Boz’s attire boasting several nods to both Left-Eye and Michael Jackson, the green-screened (and we mean extra-“green”) Snoop Dogg feature here makes up for his physical absence from the party with numerous TLC references that match the whole affair’s “remember when?” nature.
TLC drops on June 30. If you were wondering if they’ve changed much since the ’90s, their exchange with comedian Paul F. Tompkins yesterday proved they’re sticking to their guns.
