Listen: TLC Return With New Single “Way Back” feat. Snoop Dogg

TLC is back!

It’s been such a long time coming, but the infamous ’90s group sounds just as good as ever on their brand new single “Way Back” featuring Snoop Dogg.  After finally announcing a June 30 release date for their final album, which was funded on Kickstarter, T-Boz and Chilli are bringing us classic summertime, feel-good vibes.

The perfect mix between West Coast G-funk and the ’90s R&B groove we all know and love, TLC is coming back with a bang on the new single.

“It’s been a long, long time coming,” T-Boz sings as she kicks off the song.

“Like Prince and Marvin Gaye / Like Southside on Sunday,” Chilli chimes in. “Somethings don’t ever change, like you and me ’cause we go way back.”

“Way Back” doesn’t feature any vocals from Left Eye, and their up-coming album has yet to be titled. TLC is currently taking fan suggestions for the album’s title to keep in line with their collaborative Kickstarter campaign efforts.

On Friday night (April 7), 21 years after his death, Tupac Shakur was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Snoop Dogg was in attendance to accept the honors on Pac’s behalf, and he was joined by Alicia Keys, YG, Naughty By Nature’s Treach, and T.I. for a medley performance that celebrated the hip hop icon’s prolific career.

Keys kicked off the performance at the piano, honoring Shakur with soothing renditions of “Ambitionz Az a Ridah,” “I Get Around,” “I Ain’t Mad at Cha,” “Dear Mama,” and “Changes.”

Taking a break to speak to the audience about his influence on her, Alicia explained: “One of my favorite things about Pac is the way that he, you know every lyric that he ever said, it came exactly from his life, exactly from his heart. He was so raw and so real and so honest. And even though I never met him, I wish I did. I learned so much from him. All those stories and all that realness. All the honesty, I took that with me. And now that he’s gone, it’s different ya know.”

“It’s just the way it is,” she said before ending her tribute with “Changes.”

Christina Milian is busy juggling two television shows (FOX’s ‘Grandfathered‘ and her E! reality show ‘Christina Milian Turned Up‘), but she’s ready to make her musical comeback with her first project in nearly a decade. On Dec. 4, the singer/actress will release her four-song EP 4U, which marks the follow-up to 2006’s So Amazin’.

Christina teams up with Snoop Dogg on the uptempo “Like Me,” on which she declares her originality before the OG Snoop spits that West Coast flow.

“‘Like Me’ is one of the catchy and relatable records that says I’m confident, I’m real, and unique to any other relationship you’ll ever experience,” Milian tells The FADER. “Getting Snoop Dogg on the record was one of the best choices I could’ve made because everyone loves Snoop. I’ve been a fan and he really came through and showed love on his verse.”

The EP also includes “Rebel” and “Do It” featuring Lil Wayne. “I’m excited my fans are finally getting a piece of what I have been talking about for my EP,” she adds. “4U is by far my favorite musical project I have put together. It was made with love, literally. Now, I am glad I’m able to give it to my fans.”

Watch: Lalah Hathaway Releases Video for “Little Ghetto Boy” Cover (Co-Starring Affion Crockett, Snoop Dogg & More)

Lalah-Little-Ghetto-Boy

Jazz-soul artist, Lalah Hathaway continues the legacy of her father, soul music icon, Donny Hathaway, with an eloquent cover of his perennial classic, “Little Ghetto Boy.”

The visuals for the song mirror the lyrics as Lalah cruises through the inner city streets of Los Angeles, observing the sights and sounds, while also interacting with boys and men who are striving to thrive, despite their environment. You may recognize some of her male companions, including comedian/actor, Affion Crockett, fellow soul artist, Rahsaan Patterson, and even Snoop Dogg. Though “Little Ghetto Boy” has been previously covered and sampled by other artists, Lalah’s version has a special significance.

She explains why the song remains relevant to this day, “What is amazing is ‘Little Ghetto Boy’ is as poignant now as the day it was written. The truth of the song rings the same today as it did forty years ago. The fact that I can deliver this truth with the same conviction my father felt all those years ago is extraordinary. The sentiment captured in this visual will never not be real and never not be now. It’s real, fresh, and it’s powerful. It’s reality.”

Along with the release of “Little Ghetto Boy,” Lalah has sparked an inspirational campaign for art that reflects the song’s theme via social media. Fans are encouraged to submit music, poetry, sculptures, paintings, photos, etc. with the hashtags #LittleGhettoBoy and #LittleGhettoBoyArt to Lalah’s Tumblr page.

The two-time Grammy award winner’s first ever live album, Lalah Hathaway LIVE! is due out on October 30. Check out the moving visuals for “Little Ghetto Boy” below:
