20 years ago, TLC were on hiatus, following the multi-platinum success of their album “CrazySexyCool“.

They were legally restricted from recording as a group during this time, due to the bankruptcy proceedings they were encountering.

This gave the ladies time to focus on their own individual ventures. Chilli gave birth to her son, Tron, and T-Boz released her debut solo single, “Touch Myself“, for the Fled movie soundtrack.

Left Eye collaborated with Lil Kim on a remix to her song “Not Tonight“, taken from her debut 1996 album ‘Hard Core‘.

The remix turned into a whole new song, sampling Kool & The Gang’s “Ladies Night”, and featured fellow rappers Da Brat, Missy Elliott and DJ Angie Martinez, for the Martin Lawrence movie soundtrack, ‘Nothing To Lose‘.

The success of the song and hit video led to the ladies being invited to perform it for the first time together at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards.

That years award show was highly memorable, with performances by the Spice Girls “Say You’ll Be There“, Marilyn Manson “The Beautiful People“, Jamiroquai “Virtual Insanity, Puff Daddy “I’ll Be Missing You and presentations by Madonna (paying tribute to Princess Diana), Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson and more!

Here’s a recap of the spectacular Ladies Night performance!
