One of the most cited segments of VH-1’s Behind the Music series is from the episode about the group TLC. In July of 1995, less than a year after the release of their second album, CrazySexyCool, the best-selling album of all-time by a female girl group, with 23 million units sold, the trio, comprised of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, declared bankruptcy. In a clip from the show, the group’s Left Eye explains how a multi-million selling act can be left with little money.
Take note, aspiring recording artists.
Today is T-Boz’s 46th birthday. In her honor, here are twenty highlights from TLC’s career, including a few side projects.
