Honestly, Left Eye fans aren’t going to know quite what to think about the 20th anniversary re-recording of “Waterfalls” that was released this week. The new version is pretty standard up until about the 3:09 mark, when J-Pop superstar Namie Amuro lends her baby-soft voice to the late Lisa Lopes’ rap verse. It’s weird.

But that hasn’t kept the song from rocketing up the charts in Japan, where T-Boz and Chilli are set to make an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards Japan next week. The group will be accepting the MTV Japan Legend Award — and we wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a performance in the mix, too.
