The idea of a girl group, peddling a hip-hop
image was the brainchild of Atlanta-based record producer Ian Burke and one of his clients, teenager Crystal Jones. In 1990,
the idea was put to work when Jones went on a hunt for two more girls to complete the trio. Tionne Watkins and Lisa Lopes
responded. The group was originally dubbed 2nd Nature and Jones, Lopes and Watkins stepped into the studio with producers
Rico Wade and Jermaine Dupri.
An audition was arranged with singer Perri "Pebbles" Reid, who was impressed by the girls,
renamed them TLC-Skee. She then set up an audition for them with LaFace Records. Watkins and Lopes inked a deal with Pebbitone,
Reid's management and production company, while Jones was asked to leave the group. While the search was on for Jones' replacement,
the duo TLC-Skee made its debut on-record appearance on a single for Damian Dame's eponymous 1991 LP. Soon after, the group
found Jones' replacement, Rozonda Thomas, who was one of Dame's backup dancers.
Now that their group was complete, TLC
was ready to roll. Their debut album, Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip, arrived in early 1992. Likened to the "new jack swing"
of the day, the tunes were a blend of funk, hip-hop and R&B. The album was well-received and earned quadruple-platinum
certification within a year of its release. The album yielded a number of US Hot 100 Top 10 singles, including: "What About
Your Friends", "Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg" and "Baby-Baby-Baby".
The lyrics of TLC's songs were mainly penned by Lopes and
Dallas Austin. Their playful lyrics and sassy attitude served to empower women, supported by the girls' quirky and flamboyant
costumes and vibrant videos.
Tragically in 2002, Lopes died in a car accident while in Honduras. In honor of their bandmate,
Tionne Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas finished and issued 3D that same year.
Today, TLC is still considered to
be one of the most significant and accomplished R&B female groups in history.
of TLC is comprised of five compilation albums, four studio albums and 21 singles. They have yielded four No. 1 hit singles
