NEVER FORGET: TLC's Timeless "CrazySexyCool"

CrazySexyCool will forever be an R&B classic thanks to TLC. The open sexuality and their view on relationships were ahead of their time and unexpected for a group of young girls from Atlanta. Timeless hits like "Waterfalls" and "Creep" will go down in history as some of the best music to ever grace this earth.


Chili, Left Eye and T-Boz introduced the world to their second studio album on November 15th 1994. TLC revealed who they were with a title that embodied the essence of their unique trio. Left eye being a little crazy, Chili always with the sex appeal and of course T-Boz, the coolest of the pack.


Their instant classics like “Creep,” and “Red Light Special” set the path for many artists we love today. “Waterfalls” became their dos popular song spending seven weeks at number one. Growing from their 1992 album, Ooooooohhh... On The TLC Tip, the trio showed maturity in CrazySexyCool by introducing a new hip-hop soul sound. The album sold over 11 million copies in the U.S. alone, going on to win a Grammy for Best R&B Album and Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Soul Album in 1996.



Despite being one of the biggest-selling female R&B groups of all time, they were faced with financial issues and ended up filing for bankruptcy. It took five years for the group to resolve the issues they had making headlines, like Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes’ arsen charge.

However, the group remained strong until an unfortunate plane accident took the life of Lopes in 2002. Today, reminisce watching VH1’s CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, featuring Keke Palmer, Drew Sidora and Lil Mama. The film helped to remind the world that this group of women continue dynamic force in music.
