Unlike Pluto Brings the Nostalgia on 'No Scrubs' TLC Cover: Listen

Brett Smith
Unlike Pluto

Anybody who actually remembers the '90s knows exactly where they were at in life when TLC dropped “No Scrubs.” It's a generational anthem, a song that taught women to respect themselves enough to wait for the right guy, and at least tried to teach men that it's not cool to holler at women from the passenger side of their best friend's ride.

While we independent ladies continue to push up on our confidence, it's a good time for some skilled set of hands to reinvent the timeless classic. Unlike Pluto is just the respectable gentleman for the job. He teamed up with slinky, jazzy vocalist Joanna Jones for a cool, modern take that'll have you bumpin' in your seat, driving slow through the city, on your way to show love to your shortie.

Subtle horns and rolling bass push the tune to a big finish. This cover is definitely money. Go ahead and give Unlike Pluto your number. He's worth at least three-and-a-half minutes of your time.
