Ciara didn’t come to play games this year for Halloween. After receiving praise for her Selena impersonation just a day previously, Ciara went all out today (Oct 30) and broke the Internet by posing as not just one, but all three members of TLC, as she recreated the iconic “No Scrubs” music video!
The attention to detail is on point, as Ciara convincingly pulls off her Chilli, T-Boz and Left Eye — even taking on Lisa’s epic rap verse, which often gets overlooked due to radio airplay time limits omitting the rap.
Posting on social media, Ciara shared a side-by-side image of herself as TLC next to the original pose of the group that she chose to replicate, and she did them justice! She was proud to represent for her fellow ATL sisters.
“Honoring my hometown girls TLC,” Ciara said. “Their swag was on another level. One of the best female groups of all time! This was so much fun!”
Even Chilli approves of Ciara’s tribute and showed her some love via Instagram under the post. Former Arista boss LA Reid also joined in the praise, commenting “Yeah C!!”.
Yolonda Frederick was responsible for providing the make-up duties to bring Ciara’s recreation to life. She reveals that TLC were actually her first celebrity clients! “They believed in me and they gave me a shot”, she wrote. “I will forever be grateful to these uber talented… beautiful girls… Love them to the moon and back”.
The hairstyles were handled by celebrity hairstylist César DeLeön Ramirêz and the costumes were created by LA ROXX.
The original video was directed by Hype Williams and it won TLC the MTV Video Music Award for Best Group Video in 1999.
