It is what it is. We should hope for the best for each video. Haters may be corny but it's pop radio friendly af. Unfortunately most diehards don't love pop TLC. I wish the best for both.

A lot of folks keep saying they want uptempo. TLC post first album have never been known for uptempo dance songs. Silly Ho could have changed that tho.

Re Wayback promo this week has died down a bit. Once that video premieres they need NEED to be doing TV promo

So I just listened to Haters again.

And honestly, I will don't like it. I can't even get myself to finish it. BUT it really reminds me of alot of the music today - Chainsmokers, Taylor Swift and all this auto tune. It's not a Grammy worthy song but it's definitely pop friendly! I can see a lot of kids and teens enjoying this song. When I hear the song, I'm almost like 'what the hell is this!', but honestly all the songs that I have that reaction to are the biggest hits these days! Beats me ...

Alot of people weren't too excited about waterfalls either. It's so different from the rest of the rythmn and smoothness of CSC but that song is their most iconic - the video had a huge part in that. So I hope there is some concept behind the Haters video. Videos can make or break a song!

Judging from the pictures I saw I can't be too sure yet though..

My only issue with haters is the production, lyrics and vocals are on point.

What if they're using a different version of haters?

Remixing the song is right now the best they can do, and I'll not complain.

The arrangement of the vocals is another pain point.

I really dont believe that haterz will be the last single to be release off the album...

We might get another single which i believe will be HEY MUTHERF**ka, before the album release.

As far as Haters goes, the song hasnt been promoted yet overseas or in the states. It might not get a release until closer to the album release. I pray for at least 4 videos...even if the props are from the dollar store. You know they have better tracks then Way Back and Haters. I hope they are saving the better singles for after the album has been released.

@Jesaar Thanks for the info! Based on the official press release you linked to, "Way Back" is definitely the proper lead single across all markets.

It also referred to "Haterz" as TLC's November 2016 single. From what I see, "Haterz" and "Joyride" were not only in support of their overseas touring but early promo for the new album, pretty much buzz singles.

So, it is kind of confusing for them to now go back and release a video for it and make it an official (second) single from the album. Not doubting or questioning Tionne's words but I would not be surprised if "Haterz" becomes the next single here in the U.S. as well.

They are clearly getting things in order before they start the tour. "Haterz" will be ready... Once again, they are definitely on top of things and have planned them well.
