ABC RadioOn Thursday, alt-rock band Weezer released an EP of cover songs, including TLC‘s “No Scrubs” — and a member of TLC definitely approves.
In a tweet Thursday, TLC’s Chilli wrote, “This #NoScrubs cover by @Weezer is AWESOME!!! but it would be even better if we sang it with ya’ll!!! I see a TLC Weezer concert coming up..lol.”
Weezer then responded, “Hope you want our number,” referring to a lyric from the 1999 R&B hit.
“I do!!!!” Chilli replied.
Weezer’s covers EP The Teal Album also features the band’s takes on, among other songs, Michael Jackson‘s “Billie Jean” and Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me.”
Chilli also approved of Ed Sheeran‘s #1 hit “Shape of You,” which is similar enough to “No Scrubs” that the people who wrote that song — including Kandi Burruss and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle — were actually given credit on it. Chilli told ABC Radio she didn’t hear the similarity, but she wasn’t bothered about it: She said she’d love to collaborate with Sheeran.
TLC currently has two shows booked for this year: one in Temecula, CA in April, and one in Orlando, FL in June.
