Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas sit down with VH1 to talk about the group’s biggest hit, “Waterfalls,” which spent seven weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. As powerful as the song was, it was made iconic by its accompaning music video, which the girls say almost didn’t happen.
It’s 2013 and we’ve gotten some upgrades in the past few years. We’ve gone from Walkman to iPod, VCR to DVD player and flip phone to smart phone. Big changes, people. But with every new invention, we leave behind a legacy of abandoned gadgets and gizmos – Game Boys, cassette tapes, typewriters… Tamagotchis. And let’s not forget the lingo. The years of “That’s fly” / “She’s so bootylicious” / “Dang, that homeboy is a scrub” are behind us. It’s a sad, sad thing. So let’s dust off our dictionaries, get sentimental and look at some of the greatest slang words that might be dead in 2013 conversation, but live on in top chart songs. So check out the gallery of Top 10 Slang Terms Music Has Celebrated. It’s a bangin’ list beeotch. If you disagree, boy you bugg’n.

By the time you’ve put these three classic crazy, sexy and cool looks together you’ll be feeling far from unpretty.

So we decided to do a little bit of research to determine who, along with TLC, are the biggest musical artists to emerge from the A.T.L.

Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas talk to VH1 Music about “Creep.” The song became the group’s first number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 where it remained for four weeks, winning the girls their first Grammy award.
When TLC burst on the scene in 1992, they pretty much blew our minds. But before we all got a taste of their talent, their potential attracted a dream team of writers, musicians, and producers that helped propel the group to stardom.
