Over 65 million records sold worldwide. Nine Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hits. Five Grammy Awards. The numbers speak volumes when it comes to recounting the thunderous success of TLC, one of the world’s best-selling girl groups in history. The trio — comprising Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes — defined pop culture beginning in the mid-’90s with global hits like “Waterfalls” and “No Scrubs,” signature dance moves and, of course, their undeniable brand of cool. (CrazySexyCool, that is.)
But what’s truly buoyed the girl group to lasting success isn’t sales or awards, but their endlessly loyal fans — which, they say, is exactly why they’re now putting their fifth and final album in the hands of the public.
