When thinking of your favorite track from TLC‘s 1994 record breaking, diamond selling CrazySexyCool album, you would be forgiven if you struggled to decide which songs you like the best, as the album was a solid body of work!

One of the stand out tracks on the album is the sultry “Let’s Do It Again“, which blends T-Boz‘s soft, husky but sensual tones along with Chilli‘s smooth, velvet-like texture perfectly, all the way to the climax of the song, where the ladies go back and forth vocally. Amazing!

The legendary Babyface was responsible for that special little number, but not many know that it was co-produced and written by a talented up and coming producer named Jon-John Robinson, who also worked on a lot of Babyface’s solo music.

Left Eye wasn’t on this particular song, but she was always at the studio with the girls. Bebé, who is actually a character Babyface plays, provided the background vocals on this song with T-Boz and Chilli.

“Let’s Do It Again” was actually in the running to become a single! It was a toss up between that and “Diggin’ On You“, the label ultimately decided to go with the latter choice, eventually.

Jon-John and Babyface were also working on another song for TLC on the album, which had a more of a club funk vibe to it (which remains untitled). Debra Killings laid down her vocals but unfortunately, the song wasn’t able to be completed.

Jon-John went on to produce more great tracks for artists like Pink, Az Yet, JoJo, Another Level, K-Ci & Jojo, 3LW, Tamia, Jon B, Gladys Knight and Diana Ross, just to name a few!

The name aRKadia is inspired by their favorite song “Arcadia” by The Kite String Tangle, which has an 80s vibe that the girls fell in love with!
