While we accept that 17 years after the original version was released by TLC, it’s probably time for a high profile cover version for ‘Waterfall’, we’re actually questioning the need for UK three piece Stooshe to be releasing a cover version so early in their existence.
Their debut single ‘Love Me’ (featuring Travie McCoy) was released early this year to rapturous applause. It was cheeky, fun, vivacious and each of the girls was utterly engaging (esp. in the clip) to the point where they stood out like glittery dogs’ bollocks in an otherwise pedestrian pop world.
Now by single No.3 they’ve seemingly been relegated to pedestrian pop covers – albeit with a guest appearance in the clip by TLC members T-Boz and Chilli.
Sorry ladies, but we want that fun, effervescent spark of your debut back, please…
