Career

2nd Nature

In 1990, Atlanta teenager Crystal Jones put out a call for two more girls to join her in a trio to be called 2nd Nature. Her request was eventually answered by Tionne Watkins, a native of Des Moines, Iowa who moved to Atlanta with her family at an early age, and Lisa Lopes, a rapper who had just moved to the city from her native Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with only a keyboard and $750. 2nd Nature eventually managed to arrange an audition with R&B singer Perri "Pebbles" Reid, who had started her own management and production company, Pebbitone. Impressed by the girls, Pebbles renamed the group "TLC" and arranged an audition for the group with local record label LaFace Records, run by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Pebbles' husband, Antonio "L.A." Reid. Reid was impressed with Watkins and Lopes but felt that Jones should be replaced; within a few months, former Damian Dame backup dancer Rozonda Thomas was brought in to replace Jones. The girls were signed to LaFace through a production deal with Pebbitone (with Pebbles taking the role of the group's manager) (see Artist development deal) and almost immediately went into the studio with producers Reid and Babyface, Dallas Austin, Jermaine Dupri, and Marley Marl to produce their first album.

Besides being an acronym for "tender loving care", the name "TLC" was based upon the first names of the original members of the group: Tionne, Lisa, and Crystal. Therefore, when Thomas joined, the girls thought about nicknames that fit them: Watkins became "T-Boz", Lopes "Left Eye", and Thomas "Chilli".

Ooooooohhh.... On the TLC Tip (1992)

TLC in the "Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg" music video.

The first TLC album, Ooooooohhh.... On the TLC Tip, was released in February 1992 by LaFace. The songs on the album are a blend of funk (T-Boz), hip-hop (Left-Eye), and R&B (Chilli), similar to the "new jack swing" sound popularized by producer Teddy Riley in the late-1980s; TLC's sound was dubbed "new jill swing". The album was a critical and commercial success, being certified quadruple-platinum within a year and launching a number of U.S. Billboard Hot 100 top ten singles with "Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg" , "What About Your Friends", and "Baby-Baby-Baby."

TLC's lyrics, chiefly written by Left Eye and Dallas Austin, were playful, female-empowering anthems characterized by Left Eye's quirky, nasal-toned raps, T-Boz's low-voiced lead vocals, and Chilli's powerful vocals and harmonization. The musical formula was augmented by the girls' brightly-colored videos and curious costuming: each girl wore wrapped condoms on their clothing (Left Eye also wore one in a pair of glasses over her left eye).

During TLC's first national tour as MC Hammer's opening act, Left Eye and Chilli discovered that T-Boz had sickle-cell disease, an ailment which she kept a closely-guarded secret until she became ill while TLC was touring the southwestern U.S. T-Boz would continue to battle her condition and eventually became a spokesperson for the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America in the late 1990s.[3] At the conclusion of the tour, TLC decided to take more control of their careers and thus informed Pebbles that they no longer wished her to be their manager. Pebbles released the group from its management deal, but they remained signed to Pebbitone, and Pebbles continued to receive a share of their earnings. MC Hammer (born Stanley Kirk Burrell on March 30, 1962) is an American MC who was popular during the late 1980s and early 1990s, known for his dramatic rise to and fall from fame and fortune, his trademark Hammer pants, and for leaving a lasting influence on hip hop culture... sickle cell redirects here. ...

CrazySexyCool (1994)

Main article: CrazySexyCool
TLC in the "Creep" music video.

Left-Eye had started dating Atlanta Falcons American football player Andre Rison shortly after the release of Ooooooohhh.... On the TLC Tip, and by 1994 the two were living together in Rison's upscale double-story home. Their relationship was allegedly filled with violent moments, and Left-Eye filed an assault charge against Rison on September 2, 1993, although Rison later denied battering her. Left-Eye was also battling alcoholism, having been a heavy drinker since her early teen years. After another fight between Left-Eye and Rison in the early morning hours of June 9, 1994, Left-Eye, tipsy from alcohol, tossed numerous pairs of Rison's newly purchased sneakers into a bathtub, doused them with lighter fluid, and lit them on fire. The Plexiglas bathtub quickly melted and set the structural frame of the house on fire. Although firefighters were called to the scene, the house could not be saved due to the toxic fumes from the gasoline. Left-Eye was eventually arrested for and indicted on charges of first-degree arson; she was sentenced to five years of probation and required to enter alcoholism rehabilitation. Rison eventually reconciled with Left-Eye, and they continued dating on-and-off for most of the next few years.

During the fall of 1994, TLC re-entered the studio with Dallas Austin, Jermaine Dupri, Babyface, Organized Noize, and Sean "Puffy" Combs to record their second album, CrazySexyCool. Left Eye was released from rehab to attend the recording sessions, but the finished album featured significantly less of her raps and vocals. The album instead focused more on T-Boz's and Chili's contributions and a smoother, more fluid sound, similar to the most successful single from the first album, the U.S. #2 hit "Baby-Baby-Baby". All four singles from CrazySexyCool reached the Billboard Hot 100 top five, while "Creep" and "Waterfalls" peaked at number-one while Red Light Special peaked at #2 and "Diggin' on You" peaked at #5. "Waterfalls", an Organized-Noise produced record that featured an old-school soul-based musical arrangement, socially conscious lyrics criticizing drug dealing and unsafe sex, and an introspective rap from Left Eye, became TLC's biggest hit, and its million-dollar music video was an MTV staple for many months.

CrazySexyCool eventually sold over 11 million copies in the U.S., becoming one of only seven R&B albums to ever receive a diamond certification from the RIAA, and won the 1996 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album. However, many were shocked when, in the midst of their apparent success, the members of TLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on July 3, 1995.[4] In the United States, the Recording Industry Association of America awards certification based on the number of albums and singles sold through retail and other ancillary markets. ...

They declared debts totaling 3.5 million dollars, much of it because of Lopes' insurance payments citing from the Rison arson incident and Watkins' medical bills, but the primary reason being that each member of the group was taking home less than $35,000 a year after paying managers, producers, expenses, and taxes. They sought to renegotiate their contract with LaFace—under their 1991 contract, they only received seven percent of the revenues from their album sales—and to dissolve their association with Pebbitone. Both Pebbitone and LaFace countered that TLC simply wanted more money and were in no real financial danger, resulting in two years of legal hassles before the cases were finally settled in late 1996. TLC's contract was renegotiated, their production deal with Pebbitone and Pebbles (who had separated from husband Reid by this time) was rescinded, and the group was set to re-enter the recording studio in 1997 after signing a new contract with LaFace.

FanMail (1999)

Main article: Fanmail (album)
TLC in the "No Scrubs" music video.

Preliminary work on TLC's third album, FanMail, was delayed when friction arose between the group and their main producer Dallas Austin, who was by this time dating Chilli and helping to raise their young son Tron. Austin wanted $4.2 million and creative control to work on the project, resulting in a stand-off between the producer and the artists. During this period, Chilli appeared in the independent film HavPlenty, and T-Boz co-starred in Hype Williams' 1998 film Belly with rappers Nas and DMX. T-Boz made a solo song in late 1996 called Touch Myself. Left Eye started her own Left Eye Productions artist development company and signed Blaque, a TLC-like female R&B trio. She also appeared on the "Not Tonight" remix with fellow female rappers including Lil' Kim, which garnered the ladies a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Performance by a Duo, Band, or Group in 1998.

TLC eventually began working with other producers for the FanMail album, until finally negotiating with Austin, who produced the bulk of FanMail and gave the album a futuristic, more pop-based feel. FanMail was another success for TLC, debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 album sales chart and selling over 6 million copies in the U.S. The album featured the number-one hit "No Scrubs", produced by Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs, and the single "Unpretty," an alternative rock-styled song about self-love written by T-Boz and Dallas Austin (another version of it sampled Dennis Edwards' 1984 hit "Don't Look Any Further"), that also reached the top of the charts.

The videos for both songs were heavily featured on MTV and BET, and three more singles received decent radio play: "Silly Ho", "I'm Good at Being Bad", and Babyface-written ballad, "Dear Lie". A music video was also released for "Dear Lie". Like CrazySexyCool, FanMail won the Grammy Award for Best R&B Album of 2000. The group went on a worldwide tour simply named The Fanmail tour. While the first leg of the tour sold poorly and made the group lose 500,000 dollars, most of the second leg of the tour was sold out.

During and after the release of FanMail, Left Eye made it known to the press on multiple occasions that she felt that she was unable to fully express herself working with TLC and Dallas Austin. Her contributions to the songs had been reduced to periodic eight-bar raps, and studio session singers (most often Debra Killings) often took her place on the background vocals for the groups' songs. In its November 28, 1999 issue, Entertainment Weekly ran a letter from Left Eye that challenged her groupmates to record solo albums and let the fans judge which of the three was the most talented: This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...

I also challenge [producer] Dallas 'The Manipulator' Austin to produce all of the material and do it at a fraction of his normal rate.

The ladies eventually settled the feud, and The Challenge was never followed through. After the conclusion of the successful FanMail tour, the ladies, however, took some time off and pursued personal interests. Left Eye was the first to begin recording her solo album, Supernova. In the year 2000, she released a single with Spice Girl Melanie C in the UK and Europe, called "Never Be the Same Again"; it became a massive success reaching number-one in many countries.

3D (2002)

Main article: 3D (TLC album)

Before the recording of their fourth album, "3D," there was a dispute between Left Eye and T-Boz/Chilli. Left Eye originally wanted to withdraw from the group in order to see if they could duplicate their prior success without her contributions. Left Eye eventually pursued solo stardom and recorded her first album Supernova, however it underperformed overseas and was never officially released in the United States. Tragically before the album was completed, Left Eye died in a fatal car crash. Lisa Nicole Lopes (stage name Left Eye) (May 27, 1971 - April 25, 2002) was a member of the popular R&B group TLC.
