Riff: TLC – “Meant to Be”

Oct 15, 2013

Through the sorrow, through the stress/Meant to be through life and through death/Hey we’ve built a love that nothing can test

from Meant To Be lyrics by TLC

After returning to the US Hot 100 for the first time in a decade with J. Cole collaboration, “Crooked Smile,” T-Boz and Chilli continue to prove they can cut it as a duo with this sweetly-sung Ne-Yo-penned mid-tempo which celebrates their storm-weathering friendship; [LISTEN].
