Editor Pick: T-Boz “Wanna Take Me Back”

[audio:http://www.ykigs.com/286.mp3]

On a “soundtrack” that featured mostly hip hop and was primarily used to promote a tour featuring the likes of Jay-Z, Method Man, Redman & Ja Rule, this r&b gem was mysteriously tossed in the middle. Even though she primarily sang lead for TLC, this is only one of a handful of tracks we get a chance to hear T-Boz sing solo. It was released back in 2000, and I felt this strong uptempo track could have been a solid buzz single to push her towards the release of her solo debut. Unfortunately, we never got that debut, and it remains to be seen if it ever will. (This is not a mixtape, DJ Clue actually screamed like that over the whole album!)
