Along with prepping a tour and their first album in nearly a decade, the remaining members of TLC have also recently recorded a revamped version of their 1995 smash hit, "Waterfalls."
Classified as the, "Japanese Edition," the record seems innocent enough, until it gets to the part where Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes would come in with her sweet and sassy rhymes. Unbeknownst to listeners, she's replaced with Japanese singer Namie Amuro. The collaboration isn't completely out of the blue, as T-Boz and Chilli both make a cameo in Amuro's latest music video, "Hands On Me." However, not everyone was initially pleased with the unexpected lineup adjustment.
According to TMZ, Left Eye's sister Reigndrop Lopes says the family wasn't aware of the change. "I did not know about it until a fan posted it online. I mean, it would have been nice if they would have given us a heads up before being surprised." She's since warmed up to he collaboration, with the stipulation that it will only be released in Japan.
