TLC Shuts Down Negativity in 'Haters' Video
TLC don't want no scrubs -- or haters -- in their latest music video. On "Haters," Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas become cheerleaders for diversity and shut down negative opinions for the track, which will appear on their forthcoming final album, TLC.
The pop track could easily become the next major body-positivity anthem, as the ladies offer this reminder: "Haters gonna hate/ People gonna say what they say/ But we don’t care about that anyway." The song follows the group's previous releases from their self-titled effort, the Snoop Dogg collaboration "Way Back" and "It's Sunny."
Chilli teased the album in an interview with Billboard in February calling the project "classic TLC." She added, "When you hear it, it won’t feel like it’s old music. It’s TLC today because that’s the one thing that’s kind of hard -- once you figure out what your niche is and people fall in love with you as an artist for certain things, moving forward, you want to be able to evolve, but you have to keep that key ingredient that makes you, you and that makes you the artist that people love and admire. And I feel, with everything in me, that that’s exactly what we did."
TLC arrives June 30.
