Ooooooohhh...On the TLC Tip (20th Anniversary)

http://www.rnbhaven.com/images/tlctip.jpg
As I get older, I find myself saying more and more, "I can't believe it's been 10, 15, 20 years since..." Last fall, when I was thinking of ideas to pitch to my fave gossip mag Juicy, I realized that 2012 would be the 20th anniversary of Ooooooohhh...On the TLC Tip. While TLC's debut album was a landmark disc that would go on to sell millions, the group's fabulous rise wasn't as effortless as the public might've perceived. Indeed, much blood, sweat, water guns and food fights went into making their project a success.

In addition to new interviews with group members Chilli and T-Boz, who are currently consulting on a TLC bio-pic for VH1, I also spoke to producer Dallas Austin, video director Lionel C. Martin, former publicist Audrey LaCatis Onyeike, promotions man Lamont Boles, writer Carol Cooper, former Billboard R&B columnist Janine Coveny and singer Keyshia Cole. Additionally, I also wrote a sidebar tribute to the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, who was killed in a car accident ten years ago this April 25. Thank you to the Juicy team Paula T. Renfroe, Taiia Smart Young and Kweli Wright for doin' it right.

What's weird is that first single from that album is never, ever played on the radio!

Where did you lived in 1991? Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg was played a lot on FM radio in New Orleans.

I've heard the remix of Aint Too Proud 2 Beg with that awesome bassline played on the radio throughout the 90's. And this is an awesome album for sure.

Ain't too proud to beg was the first single, right?

What station would they play it on? It doesn't really fit on oldies RnB stations or hip-hop stations like a Nothin' But a G Thang. I did see the video a few days ago on VH1 soul thoughl.

My all time favorite female group. They just had so much chemistry. Even with all the troubles they had...
