There’s been a bit of TLC revival lately, and that’s definitely a good thing. There was that Stooshe music video, collaborations with Little Mix and J. Cole, and T-Boz’s short-lived reality show on the TLC network. They’ve also got a VH1 biopic in the works starring Lil’ Mama, and are apparently recording new music and planning a reunion tour.
T-Boz and Chilli’s latest moment in the spotlight comes courtesy of J-pop goddess, Namie Amuro, who parties with the R&B legends in the frothy music video for her new single, “Hands On Me.” Their appearance is short and sweet, with Namie briefly wedging herself between the pair as they drop it like it’s hot by the DJ booth, before quickly strutting off to find a space to bust out some fancy footwork for a killer dance break.
As for the song, it’s an utter triumph. It’s J-pop’s answer to “Grown Woman,” with prickly synths taking the place of Beyonce’s African beats. The ageless Namie (who’s 35 but could still pass for 22) hasn’t dropped a club banger this badass since 2009′s “Wild”.
