Black Women in History: Girls Group Favorites, TLC

TLC is another Girls group that ruled the 90s.  TLC has been in the biz for over two decades, and recently celebrates 20 years in 2012 with a reunion tour with the remaining members Rozanda 'Chili' Thomas and Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins. 


TLC was the first female group to have an album, CrazySexyCool, reach diamond status with the Recording Industry Association of America selling over 23 million copies worldwide.  Recognized by Billboard magazine as one of the greatest musical trios of all time, their album Fanmail debuted number one and sold over 11 million copies world wide. TLC's fourth album sold approximately 2 million copies world wide and featured vocals from a deceased Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopez who died tragically in a car accident April 25, 2002.  Collectively they have sold over 65 million albums worldwide and are named the second best selling female group of all time and the best selling R&B group of all time. There accolades include ten top ten singles, four number one singles, four multi-platinum albums, four Grammy awards, five MTV music video awards, three Billboard music awards, six Soul Train Lady of Soul awards, and five Soul Train awards.  Though TLC has experienced heartbreak, loss, controversy, financial and law enforcement problems, they did not let this deter them from making their mark in the music industry.

Peace and Love,
