Deze uit de Verenigde Staten afkomstige R&B, soul- en hiphopgroep werd opgericht in 1991.


De afkorting TLC staat voor de afkorting voor de beginletters van Tionne, Lisa en Crystal, de voornamen van de originele bezetting. De samenwerking met Crystal verliep echter helaas niet zo goed en Rozonda Thomas werd de vervangster van Crystal. Haar naam moest alleen nog wel met een C beginnen en er werd gekozen voor de bijnaam Chilli. De andere twee dames kregen de bijnamen T-Boz en Left Eye.


Met de single Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg zetten de dames zich op de kaart. Het grote succes kwam met de albums CrazySexyCool en Fan Mail. Hits als Waterfalls en Unpretty zijn afkomstig van deze albums.


Tijdens de opnames van hun derde album verongelukte de 30-jarige Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes in een auto- ongeluk in Honduras. De overgebleven leden besloten om het derde album af te maken. De nummers die ze samen met Lisa hadden ingezongen bleven ongewijzigd en de rest werd ingezongen door Tionne en Rozonda. Het laatste gedeelte van Lisa’s rap op Waterfalls staat gegraveerd in haar grafsteen.


In de zomer van 2017 wordt hun vijfde en laatste album verwacht.


Songtekst

You see I had this brother who was mad at me
'Coz I told my home girl that he wasn't packin'
Told the truth so I really don't give a damn
That I spilled the beans on his little short stem man

Some of y'all be foolin' us
Big feet big hands just plain big, the sex ain't worth a damn
We women wanna know these things
If y'all got the bat but not the swang

Put in work if you don't want the girl to talk
And you don't want your feelings hurt
Put in work 'coz if you don't
That girl's just gon' go spreadin' the word

Girls talkin' got ya all caught out there
Why you thinkin' that it's all about ya?
Forget she told me everything about ya
But the girls are talkin', the girls are talkin'
Girls talk about the booty too
About the way a brother is hangin' too
When you didn't think that nobody knew
You see the girls are talkin', the girls are talkin'

Listen y'all need to know this
That we'll straight up go tell your business
So if you're gonna come you better come with it
If you ain't swingin' just put your tongue in it

Some of y'all be killin' me
Thinkin' you got powers like Austin but you're more like Mini-Me
And when you finally get your blood flowin'
It be lookin' like a pinky with a glove on it

Put in work if you don't want the girl to talk
And you don't want your feelings hurt
Put in work 'coz if you don't
That girl's just gon' go spreadin' the word

Girls talkin' got ya all caught out there
Why you thinkin' that it's all about ya?
Forget she told me everything about ya
But the girls are talkin', the girls are talkin'
Girls talk about the booty too
About the way a brother is hangin' too
When you didn't think that nobody knew
You see the girls are talkin', the girls are talkin'

What up papi, you think you got game?
I know you're feelin' like my sexual tame can make ya happy
You'll remember me Left eye, TLC
You got to lick it before you stick it and that's just me
I be killin' 'em with the Gucci fits and kicks
And you be hurtin' my ears with them lines so swift
You get a new approach, you're game's a joke
Co-signin' from the sidelines tryin' to poke

I'm bigger than that, you're small talk face the fact
You wanna rock the boat a little, well earn your pass
And it's the last call for alcohol, meet at the bar
Me and my girls doin' it big we pop stars

Girls talkin' got ya all caught out there
Why you thinkin' that it's all about ya?
Forget she told me everything about ya
But the girls are talkin', the girls are talkin'
Girls talk about the booty too
About the way a brother is hangin' too
When you didn't think that nobody knew
You see the girls are talkin', the girls are talkin'

Girls talkin' got ya all caught out there
Why you thinkin' that it's all about ya?
Forget she told me everything about ya
But the girls are talkin', the girls are talkin'
Girls talk about the booty too
About the way a brother is hangin' too
When you didn't think that nobody knew
You see the girls are talkin', the girls are talkin'

Girls talkin' got ya all caught out there
Why you thinkin' that it's all about ya?
Forget she told me everything about ya
But the girls are talkin', the girls are talkin'
Girls talk about the booty too
About the way a brother is hangin' too
When you didn't think that nobody knew
You see the girls are talkin', the girls are talkin'
