Left Eye’s quirky debut solo single was released on all physical formats this week in 2001 in the UK!

The single failed to make an impact in the US, but it enjoyed moderate success in Europe, Australia and most notably in the UK, where it went on to reach #16 after its release on October 15, 2001.

The Dallas Austin remix on the single features an additional rap verse!

The first single from the Supernova album was intended to be “Hot”, but was changed at the last minute by LA Reid.

Unfortunately, Lisa’s live performance of The Block Party on Top of the Pops was canceled after the September 11 attacks in New York City.

Check out the fun and vibrant Block Party music video!

Left Eye gave us a glimpse of her ‘Hot’ single when she performed with TLC on MTV 20: Live And Almost Legal in 2001. She performed her Waterfalls rap over her Hot instrumental!
