The TLC classic “Creep” has received a remake from singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger, as he crafts his own version, paying homage to the song which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart over 20 years ago and still live on today. The original TLC record is a not-so-gentle reminder that women cheat, too, but Eric’s new version finds him making promises to never creep on his lady. The new track is produced by cousins Bongo The Drum Gahd & C4 from the famous L&F Record production, and features TLC front woman, T-Boz.
Bellinger is most known for his songwriting skills, creating hits with artists like Chris Brown (“Fine China”) and Justin Bieber (“Right Here”), but on July 17, he will be dropping his own Cuffing Season EP and “Creep” is the project’s latest single. Speaking about his “Creep” version, Bellinger says: “I’m really big on my features making sense rather than just throwing random artists on songs just to say we collabed, when I heard the ‘Creep’ flip, I immediately knew I had to at least try to get T-Boz on it since that was her solo song with legendary female group TLC”. Today, Bellinger kicks off the first leg of his international ‘Cuffing Season Tour’ in Australia’s capital, Canberra. Hear the new record below!
