E2E music feature writer Lydia pulls out a decade old R&B classic for this week’s Throwback Thursday.

3LW - I Do (Wanna Get Close To You) ft. Loon

It’s time to go back. Way back. Back into time. Well. somewhat!

For this week’s Throwback Thursday, I am taking you back to the year 2002. A simpler time. Where we lived for Just Do It bags…and music like this.

Now this song is one that is often forgotten, but it truly was a banger in my eyes! Maybe it was Loon‘s feature that made it that much better, who knows. All I know is that 3LW did the damn thing on this track. Of course, my favourite 3LW song is ‘No More (Baby I’ma Do Right)’, but that track would have been way too obvious!

Considering ‘I Do’ was released only two years later than ‘No More’, they did a huge amount of growing up in that period of time. All one needs to do is compare the dance routines in this video, to the routines in ‘No More’ and you’ll have your answer. 3LW went from Velours to PVC almost overnight. But still. We loved it. It is only now that I realise how hideous the outfits in this video were. What the hell were they thinking?!

Anyway, here it is! Enjoy!
