Thursday Throwback: TLC

[mp3j track=”Creep.mp3″]

A follow up to last week’s throwback, we’re taking you back to 1994 again this week.  T-Boz, Left Eye, and Chili recorded and released their album, CrazySexyCool, hitting the streets via LaFace Records under the name TLC on Halloween of this awesome music year.  “Creep,” TLC’s first number one hit single in which they sing about infidelity, went on to chart through 1995, becoming 1995’s second best selling single (behind Madonna’s “Take A Bow”), and earning the group the Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.  With a sample of Slick Rick’s “Hey Young World,” the song was so successful it was released all over again in 1996.  We remember TLC for many things, their fierce urban style, smooth vocals, headline making personal lives, but most of all, that crazy, sexy, and cool is just about the best combination you can get.
