For Apple Music’s Juneteenth-inspired ‘Freedom Songs’, a collection of covers and originals, sisterly duo Chloe x Halle covered TLC’s “Waterfalls,” a track that conquered the pop charts of its day while staying true to TLC’s signature ’90s R&B-defining “around the way girl” aesthetic.
“This song speaks so much to who we are as artists and human beings,” the duo protegé’s of Beyoncé said. “We always say music is therapy to us because the lyrics are healing. There’s something about singing these words to yourself—it turns into an encouraging mantra that makes you feel inspired after listening.”
Back in June of 2020, Chloe x Halle shared a medley of covers to their YouTube page featuring songs by Lauryn Hill, Aaliyah, and TLC, saying they are three artists who have “inspired” their style.
Check out the full version of their rendition of “Waterfalls”, available exclusively on Apple Music and iTunes.
