Thursday 9/3/2020 1am ET: Feature LP: TLC – CrazySexyCool (1995)

CrazySexyCool is the second studio album by American girl group TLC. It was released on November 15, 1994, by LaFace and Arista Records. Following the group’s record deal, they released their debut album Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip in 1992 to positive reviews and commercial success. The following year the group began working on a follow-up with an unproductive recording process due to personal struggles, notably those of member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes who was involved in a volatile romantic relationship and struggling with alcoholism. The album’s recording lasted until September 1994, with Lopes’ role diminished because she was in rehab.

The album saw the group reunite with producers Dallas Austin, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and Jermaine Dupri as well as new collaborators Organized Noize and Chucky Thompson, and also featured contributions from Sean “Puffy” Combs who helped with the notable hip hop soul sound. CrazySexyCool featured hip hop beats, funk, deep grooves, propulsive rhythms and smooth production. The album’s lyrical content was seen as a departure from the group’s debut and was seen as a coming-of-age project which explored themes such as sexuality, romanticism, inexperience, and youthful optimism.

CrazySexyCool was met with critical acclaim and commercial success, peaking at number three on the Billboard 200, where it spent over two years. It has been certified 12-times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), making TLC the first girl group in history to be awarded diamond status. CrazySexyCool has since sold over 14 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling album by an American girl group. The album has since been featured on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die and was listed as a “New Classic” by Entertainment Weekly in 2008. The album was also ranked as the seventh best diamond-certified album of all time by Billboard.

Artist Countdown: TLC Top 20 Hits 6pm ET

TLCTLC is an American girl group whose repertoire spans R&B, hip hop, soul, funk and new jack swing. TLC originally comprised singer Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, rapper Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and singer Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas. The group was very successful in the 1990s and early 2000s in spite of numerous spats with the law, each other, and the group’s record label.

TLCs debut album, Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip, sold 6 million copies worldwide and spawned the hit singles “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg”, “Baby-Baby-Baby” and “What About Your Friends”. This success was surpassed by their second album, CrazySexyCool, which was certified diamond by the RIAA — a first for a female group. Buoyed by the top 5 singles “Creep”, “Red Light Special”, “Diggin’ on You”, and ‘”Waterfalls”, it eventually sold 23 million copies worldwide.[4] Five years later, in 1999, the group released their third album FanMail which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart and sold more than 11 million copies worldwide with the hit singles “No Scrubs” and “Unpretty”. The subsequent tour became the highest grossing tour of all time by a female band. In 2002, Lopes died in a car accident in Honduras. Seven months later, T-Boz and Chilli released the group’s fourth album 3D, which sold 2 million copies worldwide, scored the Top 20 hit “Girl Talk”, and earned two Grammy Awards nominations. It featured previously unreleased vocals from Left Eye.

Billboard magazine ranked TLC as one of the greatest musical trios. Between 1990 and 2002, the band had ten top ten singles, four number one singles, four multi-platinum albums, and won five Grammy Awards. – Wikipedia
