From The Vault: TLC – ‘Ain’t 2 Proud To Beg’

Today, From The Vault journeys back to the early 90’s with the debut single from the best selling girl-group of all time. It’s TLC and their in-your-face anthem ‘Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg.’

Released at the end of 1991, ‘Beg’ was produced by the band’s most fervent collaborator, Mr Dallas Austin, and written by the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.
An instructional anthem of sorts, the song urges women not to be afraid of being sexual beings, no matter how much society wants to villainize it. 20 years ago that was pretty envelope-pushing.

**************

Lionel C. Martin directed the super-loud video which displays the band in all its crazy-glory. Cross-colors, baggy clothing, and most importantly what became the ladies signature: they can be seen wearing condoms on their clothes.
The confidence and passion that the trio exude make it hard to believe that it was their first ever music video.

At a time when we’re still mourning the demise of Danity Kane and when groups like Little Mix are – from our vantage point – doing their best yet not enough, we can’t help but feel nostalgic about the good ole days when girl-groups were ruling the charts.

With a crowd-funded album on the way and a bevy of “current” producers on board, it seems TLC is ready to give the world that blend of crazy, sexy and cool that made them a Pop Culture fixture for the ages.

TLC Final Album Fundraiser Hits $100,000 In 48 Hours

tlc-kickstarter-2015-1-thatgrapejuice

Are TLC re-moulding the game for independent artists? It could certainly be argued so.

During their heyday, the group were hailed as innovators and trailblazers. And, against the odds, it appears they’re reminding the naysayers why they enjoy such status.

As widely reported, the trio’s surviving members T-Boz ‘Tionne’ Watkins and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to facilitate the recording of their fourth and final album.

With a set target of $150,000 and 30 days to reach it, the ladies appealed to fans to “become part of the process” by donating and giving incentives such as fitness classes with Chilli and trips to the movies with T-Boz.

Shade as some may, it’s working. Because less than two days since going live, the campaign is fast approaching its target total.
