TLC have toured the world and touched numerous countries in recent years for the first time, except for Africa – but that could be about to change!
Chilli was asked by a fan on Twitter (April 18) if TLC would be touring Africa, and she couldn’t say, replying with a mouth shut emoji! 🙊
T-Boz also touched on the subject via Instagram (April 13), saying “I think we’re going to Africa, [it] sounds like it’s gonna work out, I THINK!”
“So, don’t hold me to it unless you start hearing it on social media”, T-Boz continued. “If we can work the deal out, which we’re trying to, the goal is we’re coming to Africa.”
The news comes as a welcomed surprise to TLC’s African fans, especially over in South Africa, where fans have been praying for a TLC tour over there for years!
We hope the girls can finalize a tour deal in Africa very soon!
And yes, we agree Tionne, “Africa’s far!” (quote from 1998’s Belly), but it’s so worth the airmiles! 😉
Cardi B teased fans with a throwback picture of TLC on Instagram ahead of her Coachella performance tonight (April 15), hinting that her show would contain something TLC-related!
Well, the surprise was in the form of her outfit! Cardi B decided to rock a TLC-inspired outfit, similar to what the girls wore at the 1996 Grammy Awards!
She also rocked a Left Eye inspired hairdo, similar to Lisa’s look in the “Dear Lie” music video!
Cardi B performed all of her hit singles, including her recent hit “Finesse“, the record breaking “Bodak Yellow“, new single “Be Careful“, and fan favorites from her latest album, including “Drip” and “Best Life“.
Guests on stage included G-Eazy (“No Limit“), 21 Savage (“Bartier Cardi”), Kelhani (“Ring”), Chance The Rapper (“Best Life”) and YG (“She Bad”).
Congratulations for putting on a great performance, Cardi B! You didn’t miss a beat, baby bump and all!
It’s refreshing to see positivity amongst successful women in the music industry, a field heavily driven by competition.
Competition is not the case, however, when it comes to the legendary TLC and the talented newcomer in the business, Cardi B!
Following last week’s revelation of Cardi B’s TLC references on her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, both T-Boz and Chilli have since praised and thanked Cardi for the love!
“AYEEEEEE I’m so happy for Cardi B. You did yo thang!“, T-Boz said on Instagram. “Also, thank you for the TLC and Left Eye love! You look amazing prego. God bless.”
Chilli followed up and said “Aaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyeeeeee that’s wassup”.
Cardi B soon noticed the thanks from the girls and excitedly reposted, saying “Issa LEGEND!!! Thank you T-Boz, I [appreciate it]“.
Chilli responded (April 15) saying “Let’s work! Well… after u have the baby.”
With all the love and appreciative respect between TLC and Cardi B, it wouldn’t be so unimaginable to hope the girls unite musically to create some magic!
Maybe on a remix or something completely new! Either way, we love seeing all the love and support between the ladies!
If you’re a true TLC fan you’ll have been following T-Boz playing the role of former convict Sheila in the hit daytime soap Days of our Lives in a reoccurring role since she began in 2016.
She returned in 2017 after her prison release to assist another prisoner, Bonnie Lockhart, in an elaborate plot to blackmail the Kiriakis for a big payout!
During her time in the Kiriakis mansion, Sheila has posed as a maid, ordained a faux marriage and reunited with Eli Grant, her friend that got her arrested back in the day!
Things didn’t go to plan and she left town empty handed, which left fans wondering if it would be the last we’ve seen of Sheila Watkins!
Thankfully, T-Boz has hinted that Sheila may be returning to the soap! She responded to a fan on Instagram (April 4) who asked when she would return to Days of our Lives and said “I’m shooting now“.
Will you be tuning in to Days of our Lives to catch more of Sheila’s shenanigans?
Update: T-Boz will be next be seen again starting on September 13, according to the show’s taping schedule.
The existence of this TLC video was put into question by some fans over the years when a huge fan named Shaun told everyone he owned a copy of the original ‘Get It Up‘ video!
Well, Shaun finally got around to digging in his VHS (remember those?!) archives to prove the naysayers wrong by unleashing a sneak peak of this hidden treasure in his collection!
The background of this video? According to Tae Harmon, who was also featured in the video, it was shot in a movie theater in Atlanta.
She was included in a group shot in a hallway when all the attendees are dancing together with TLC. The video also includes Left Eye‘s sister Reigndrop Lopes!
However, after a meeting with LaFace Records, they decided the video wasn’t strong enough and opted to reshoot the video in Los Angeles, which is the video we have all grown to know and love!
Shaun may share the full video in the near future, but for now, enjoy the clip and let us know what you think about it!
Cardi B finally gave her fans what they have been waiting for this week, with the highly anticipated release of her debut album ‘Invasion of Privacy‘.
Following the TLC mention in the album’s latest single ‘Be Careful‘, Cardi B continues to address the members of TLC on her album!
On the track ‘Thru Your Phone‘, Cardi B gives a nod to the legendary Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes!
The lyrics go: “I cannot stand you, right hand to Jesus, I might just cut all the tongues from your sneakers, smash your TV from Best Buy, you gonna turn me into Left Eye!”
Be sure to check the album out and let us know your thoughts!
