睽違 15 年,經典 R&B 女團 TLC 將發行最終專輯,回歸首支單曲「Way Back」!

1991 年成立的美國 R&B 女團 TLC,至今發行過四張專輯,其中有 10 首告示牌 Top 10 單曲,包含 4 首冠軍單曲,並獲得五座葛萊美獎,更以 6500 萬張專輯總銷量榮登史上最暢銷美國女子團體的最佳紀錄。然而她們的音樂計畫在成員 Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes 不幸於 2002 年因交通事故過世後就無限期停擺,留下「No Scrubs」、「Waterfalls」、「Creep」和「Unpretty」等朗朗上口的金曲。

  沒有歌迷就沒有 TLC,2015 年 9 月時剩下的兩名團員 Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins 和 Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas 在 Kickstarter 平台上發起群募,希望歌迷出資協助新專輯的錄製,感謝這些年來不離不棄的支持。結果沒想到兩天就達到預期設定的 15 萬美金金額,其中 Katy Perry 個人也捐贈 5000 美金,最後共募得 43 萬美金。(*募資網頁

  睽違 15 年第五張專輯,也是團體的最後一張專輯,由製作人 Ron Fair 操刀,邀請歌迷參與命名,共同創造 TLC 的歷史,最後確定專輯名稱就叫《TLC》,將於今年 6/30 發行。新專輯忠於過往走 90 年代風格,用復古靈魂樂勾起大家對 TLC 的喜愛,首支 R&B 流行主打「Way Back」請來 Snoop Dogg 饒舌助陣,回味歌頌永遠不變的友情。歌詞提到 Prince、Marvin Gaye、James Brown 和 Michael Jackson,而相信 TLC 的音樂在歌迷心目中也跟這些經典歌手一樣,是永恆的傳奇!



Lyrics 歌詞:(by 好青年 整理)

Written by Snoop Dogg, T-Boz & James Abrahart

[Verse: T-Boz]
It's been a long, long time comin'
Ain't seen you around
Time keeps on passin'
But you still my bitch
Can't tell us nothin'
And it's nothin' but a thing
To pick up where we left off, yeah

[Pre-Chorus: Chilli]
Don't you ever think
Back on all that other shit we went through
You know I remember, yeah
Don't you ever wish
One day we could reminisce
It feels like, we were just together
'Cause we go way back

[Chorus: ]
Like Prince and Marvin Gaye
Like South side on Sunday
Some things don't ever change
Yeah, you and me
'Cause we go way back
James Brown and Michael J.
Like them high school parties
Some things don't ever change
Yeah, you and me
We go way back

[Verse: Snoop]
Twistin' up a twenty sack
Fishin', listen, reminiscin' bout the days of way back
Aye, where the ladies at?
I need a fine one, top designer
Baby can you help find one?
A real one, not a phoney, I want a own me
Never leave me lonely, be my tenderoni
When our photo together, take a few flicks together, that'll last forever
Whether, we do, you do? me too
See through it all, now creep with the Dogg
Don't let the rain drops stop ya, I got ya
This is so evolutionary proper
Now what the future holds, no one knows
But the past is a blast, game overload
It's like Good Times, my favorite episodes
I'm just the same OG, givin' y'all a little TLC

[Verse: T-Boz]
I'd like to think, when we were growin' (growin')
And shit got tough, we kept it goin' (goin')
Out in the streets, no signs of slowin', yeah
It's still nothin' but a thing
To pick up where we left off, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus]

[Bridge: ]
We go way back
Way back, way back, way back, way back, yeah
'Cause we go way back
Way back, way back, way back, way back
We go way back

[Chorus]
