The year 1994 served up much in the way of now-classic hits; one of the notable being TLC‘s ‘Creep’. Lifted from the ladies’ monster-selling ‘CrazySexyCool’ LP, the song and its accompanying video were not only successful (standing as the group’s first #1 on the Hot 100), they went some way in establishing T-Boz, Left-Eye, and Chilli as the original pioneers of the now mainstream ‘Independent Women’ M-O.
Indeed it was gender-progressive hits such as this and ‘No Scrubs’, as well as more socially-concious releases such as ‘Waterfalls’, which helped to establish TLC as the biggest selling female group of all time. A group which the likes of Destiny’s Child owe a significant amount of their success to. TLC, we salute you.
