"Can't Get It Back" is a song by American recording group Blaque. It was written by Marlon Williams, Hernst Bellevue, Aubrey Gravatt, Joseph Freeman, Theodore Life, Natina Reed, and Salaam Remi for the band's second album, Blaque Out (2002), featuring production by the latter. Released as the first single from the album, it song only managed to peak at 91 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Music video[edit]

A music video for the song was shot in Los Angeles, California, and directed by Liz Friedlander. The video was set to feature the girls dancing in separate apartments, throwing tantrums where they ripped pictures and discarded memories of their love interests. Due to undisclosed reasons, Columbia Records shelved the video; in 2010, a 30-second clip of the cancelled video leaked via YouTube.[1]

Remixes[edit]

A Trackmasters remix, produced by Poke and Tone, featuring Royce da 5'9", was included on the trio's promo vinyl pressing of the single. The remix was also featured on the 2007 and 2011 iTunes versions of Blaque Out.

In 2002, Mis-Teeq re-recorded the song for their second album Eye Candy, including a modified introduction and a re-written bridge, rapped by the group's member Alesha Dixon.

When it came to "Scandalous"'s follow-up release in summer 2003, the group and Telstar Records decided to use a remixed version of "Can't Get It Back" as the official single version and instead the "Ignorantz Remix" was included in the video.
