TLC, one of the top vocal groups of the 90s, may be returning, in a rather odd way. Group member Lisa Left Eye Lopes died in a car accident in 2002, seemingly ending the trio's run. However, remaining members Roz Chilli Thomas and T-Boz Watkins are working on a reunion concert and are reportedly going to include a projected hologram of Lopes at times during the concert, singing along with them. We're not sure if this is genius or creepy, but has certainly brought the group its greatest attention in years. ~ Soultracks: TLC reunion possible ~ retrieved June 6, 2013 © SoulTracks

TLC were one of the biggest-selling female R&B groups of all time, riding a blend of pop, hip-hop, and urban soul to superstardom during the '90s. Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins, rapper Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas managed to appeal equally to pop and R&B audiences, blending catchy hooks and bouncy funk with a sassy, sexy attitude. Initially, their image was equal parts style and spirit, bolstered by a flamboyant, outrageous wardrobe. As time passed, they became equally well known for their chaotic personal lives, leaving a trail of headlines that read like a soap opera plot: arson, rehab, bankruptcy, serious illness, high-profile romances, and countless intragroup squabbles. ~ Allmusic: TLC ~ retrieved June 6, 2013 © Allmusic

TLC ~ CrazySexyCool (1995) ~ Ranked #6 SPIN Albums Of The Year in 1995.
