Welcome to a special edition of Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature carved out to celebrate TV and Film’s brilliant past
Here at TGJ HQ, we’ve been looking for an excuse to shine a light on the impactful sights and sounds of T-Boz and how her art (and art inspired by her ) played an influential role in the careers of artists who now deemed to be more influential than her.
Much like Prince and Janet Jackson, the magic in T-Boz‘ voice lay in its uniquely powerful and poignant tone and her ability to carry stories without the sprawling ranges some of her peers were blessed with.
Chili-TBoz really were the 1-2 perfect punch/combo. As SOON as you get tired of one’s particular voice, the other one comes in and saves the day😂 They balanced and complimented each other well.

Criminally underrated, T’s influence can heard found of Britney Spears’ debut single ‘Baby One More Time’, Toni Braxton‘s ‘Breathe Again’ and Madonna‘s ‘Human Nature’…the first two being tracks originally penned with her in mind.
A fresh look at videos, performances and interviews celebrating one of of the most important women in Popular culture.
2. Madonna’s Human Nature could have very well been sung by TBoz..given that Dallas Austin produced it. Madonna was SAVVY.
