I know this has been discussed dozens of times before and excuse me if this has been confirmed already, but it’s news to me and probably to other fans as well. I’ve just stumbled across a comment on YT about the singer on World Wide… I searched the forum but I couldn’t find any thread where this is mentioned.
For years it was said that it was Michel’le singing the hook, then Flipside (RIP) said it was Left Eye, the name Anige Martinez was put out there as well. But neither of them really sounded like the one who’s actually singing the hook.
Turns out it’s supposedly Left Eye’s cousin Tangi Forman. That would explain why the name Left Eye was brought up.
Listen to this song. She starts singing at 0:27 and if it’s not her on World Wide, I really don’t know who else it could be…
