TLC Releases New Version Of “Waterfalls” Without Lisa Lopes
The family of former TLC member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who passed away in 2002, has been very vocal lately about their lack of inclusion in all things TLC since Lisa’s death, and now they have yet another reason to feel excluded.
In honor of the groups’ 20th anniversary, remaining TLC group members Chilli and T-Boz recorded a new version of their 90’s hit “Waterfalls” for their fans in Japan……..and replaced Left Eye’s verse with one from another, local Japanese artist.
The family of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes’ feels betrayed by TLC’s decision to re-record “Waterfalls” with a Japanese pop star … because no one even bothered to tell them.
T-Boz and Chili recently released a new version of the group’s 90’s hit — in honor of their 20th anniversary . Instead of keeping Left Eye (who died in 2002) on the recording, they replaced her with Namie Amuro (think Britney Spears of Japan).
Left Eye’s sister, Reigndrop Lopes, is extremely disappointed, telling TMZ, “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 head up before being surprised.”
Reigndrop says her mom was shocked and hurt as well … because she felt keeping Lisa on the song would have honored her daughter’s memory.
Hmmmm. This sounds a lil shady to us. Check out the “new” Waterfalls below and see what you think..
So what’s the verdict, Bossip fam? Do you hate it or love it?
