New TLC is on the way. The iconic group's fifth and final studio album, TLC, is set to arrive on June 30th and looks to be a return to form for the legendary ladies. We've already gotten a couple previews of the album with the official lead single "Way Back" featuring Snoop Dogg and buzz tracks "Haters" and "Joy Ride." Now we're getting yet another new song ahead of the album's release with a leak of album track "It's Sunny."
"It's Sunny" sounds just like its title suggests. Everything here is all sunshine and good vibes as T-Boz and Chilli bask in the glow of brighter days. "Now the dark days are gone / And the bright days are here / I can finally see the sun appear," T-Boz sings as the track starts. Soon after, a thumping, house-like beat kicks in and the jam gets underway. T-Boz and Chilli celebrate the coming of better days while utilizing a good chunk of Earth, Wind & Fire's "September" as the musical basis for the track. It's a smart choice, with the cheerful horns and feel-good vibes of the EWF classic. And, for good measure, they also manage to sneak in a portion of Bobby Hebb's soulful "Sunny" in as well, making sure the good time vibes last throughout.
If this sounds familiar, it's also because the ladies worked the track in during their appearance on Taraji's White Hot Christmas special last year, meaning that they've been sitting on this one for a good while. Kick off your Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer with TLC's celebration of the good times right here and hop below for the TLC tracklist.
