TLC returns with a new single featuring Snoop Dogg.
From the opening lyric, “It’s been a long, long time coming,” “Way Back” is an effortlessly uplifting return from TLC, blending their classic sound and the group’s immediately identifiable harmonies, as well as a guest verse from Snoop Dogg. Pitchfork beamed, “TLC occupy the same rarefied air as the icons they honor in the chorus, and ‘Way Back’ is a fine way to kick off their hard-earned victory lap.” TIME wrote, “’Way Back’ follows in the footsteps of … ‘Waterfalls’ and ‘No Scrubs,’ timeless songs that showcase their impressive pipes and innate danceable beats,” and NPR noted, “’Way Back,’ is gloriously, gleefully ’90s right down to the Snoop Dogg feature.”
This song formally begins the next chapter of TLC, whose new album is set to soundtrack an unbelievable journey thus far. Having sold over 65 million records worldwide, TLC are one of the best-selling American girl groups of all time, with four GRAMMY Awards, four multi-platinum albums (two of which went Diamond), ten Top 10 singles and four Number 1s. Their undeniable influence across music, fashion and female friendship defined and continues to define generations.
