Despite releasing it as a single, featuring TLC in the official video, performing it at the MOBOs (as well as turning up with TLC) and defending the single whenever it was criticised; girl group Stooshe have revealed that they didn’t want to remake TLC’s classic RnB hit Waterfalls.
They claim that the decision to release it as a single following their cover of the single at a number of festivals, it pushed by their management and the girls’ were overruled by their record label.
The girls initially stood by the cover but speaking to the Daily Star, Karis Anderson stated that the song would not be on the tracklist of their debut album and have named their newest single Slip, as their comeback single:
We are pretending Waterfalls didn’t happen, that song was never our decision.
Slip now feels like a comeback, even though we’ve only been around for a year. Waterfalls is not going on the album. We love the TLC version, but we didn’t like it as a single for us.
Karis continued to speak about the reasons behind the delay of their debut album:
It was down to us that our album didn’t come out months ago. It was ready to go, but we was listening to it and realised the label had changed a few mixes, a few structures and even taken off a few songs. We made this album before we got signed so it was important for us to still have control.
Stooshe’s debut album is set for release on 27 May and their third single Slip will be released on 12 May. Check out the video for Slip below:
