With year-end performances on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars season finale and the 2013 American Music Awards, ’90s pop group TLC seems to be making a comeback while featuring Brooklyn rapper Lil Mama. TLC’s 20 is the trio’s greatest hits album signifying their 20-year span of music.
Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas started their rise as one of the biggest selling female groups of all time when they appeared on the scene in 1992 with their debut album Ooooooohhh…On the TLC Tip, followed by 1994’s CrazySexyCool and their last in 1999, FanMail. The collection features their biggest hits: “Waterfalls,” “Creep,” “No Scrubs,” and “Unpretty,” as well as “Baby-Baby-Baby” and album cuts “Kick Your Game” and “Hat 2 Da Back.” It also includes the new single “Meant to Be,” which according to the crew as seen in the VH1 biopic CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, was their personal mantra before hitting the stage. (Singer-songwriter Ne-Yo penned the track.)
Airing in October and starring Drew Sidora as T-Boz, Lil Mama as Left Eye and Keke Palmer as Chilli, The TLC Story follows the trio in their journey through music, with all of the ups, the downs, the loss and the comeback.
