TLC’s Chilli and Weezer Don’t Want No Scrubs: Live at Coachella 2019

The wishes of the C of TLC have finally come true, in the form of a live collaboration!

Back in January, rock band Weezer dropped a teaser from their latest album of covers, ‘The Teal Album‘. On the project they decided to cover the TLC classic ‘No Scrubs‘ — and Chilli approved!

So much so, the gorgeous TLC member let it be known that she would like to perform the song with them one day!

Fast forward to April 13th and her hopes have now come to fruition. Weezer invited Chilli to join them live on stage during their set at the Coachella festival in Indio, California!

Chilli surprised fans when she performed the iconic ‘Fanmail‘ lead single effortlessly along with Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo, giving the song a new lease of life to an alternative audience.

Much like the famous introductions Chilli gives to the audience at TLC shows, educating young girls to avoid those scrubs when they start to drive, Rivers replicates the same sentiments during his anti-scrub speech. Our girls have taught him well.

Keeping in with the humor, he starts the song solo, acting surprised to hear a familiar female voice interject his vocals, whilst maintaining the suspense of Chilli’s guest feature.

The performance was a hit with the crowd, and Chilli later took to social media to thank the guys and hinted that they may be in attendance on the upcoming TLC summer tour!

In addition to ‘Scrubs’, Weezer also performed a barbershop quartet version of their own song, “Beverly Hills”, as well as fan favorites “Buddy Holly”, “Hash Pipe”, “El Scorcho”, and “Island in the Sun”.

Most diehard TLC fans will recall Weezer being one of TLC’s biggest competitions at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards, where both groups were nominated for countless awards.

It’s a pleasure to see them working together. Let’s hope more connections and collabs will be formed with more of their peers from the 90’s and today!

Check out their epic performance below and let us know your thoughts!

During their stay in Tokyo, they did a spot of shopping to satisfy their retail therapy! Chilli stopped by at clothing store C’est Vingt-Trois, and caught up with an old friend, Moss Kitayama.

T-Boz gave fans a sneek peek of the stunning views from her hotel suite via her Instagram story. She had hinted to fans that she was going to be in Tokyo on her live feed a few weeks ago.

The girls will be back in the US in time for their next show on April 25 at the Pima County Fair.

TLC previously joined forces with Nelly in 2015 as part of New Kids On The Block’s The Main Event tour. This tour will be something different.

“We had the pleasure of working together before on a separate tour, but it wasn’t ours”, Nelly says. “So, we decided that we had so much fun on that one that we decided we would come together and do our own thing. So we’re looking forward to reaching out to everybody this summer and killing it”.

“We have so many surprises”, Chilli gushes. “It’s going to be a very different tour, and I think you guys are going to be very excited.”

“We’re gonna come together for something special that we feel like nobody else is doing on tour and give you a whole ‘nother vibe”, Nelly continues.

TLC Headline Official 61st GRAMMY Awards After-Party

01-en-vogue-2018-cr-Ben-Duggan-billboard-1548 (1)

After the 61st GRAMMY Awards on Sun. Feb. 10, more than 5,000 members of the music industry community will head for the Renaissance-themed official after-party celebration at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The event will be headlined by R&B greats En Vogue and TLC. The private, ticketed event’s festivities also feature jazz vocalist Kurt Elling and a set by DJ Michelle Pesce, as well as gourmet cuisine and dancing.

The ladies of GRAMMY-nominated group En Vogue stirred up the ’90s R&B scene with hits including “Hold On,” “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)” and “Don’t Let Go (Love),” which was nominated for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal at the 39th GRAMMY Awards.

The women of GRAMMY-winning group TLC also made huge waves in ’90s (and early-2000s) R&B. At the 38th GRAMMY Awards, their sophomore album CrazySexyCool won Best R&B Album and its single “Creep” won Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. At the 42nd GRAMMY Awards, the group won both categories again with their follow-up album Fanmail and its hit “No Scrubs.”

TLC & En Vogue’s first televised collaboration occurred back in 2008 at the BET Awards, where they were the special guests of Alicia Keys, who also happens to be this years GRAMMYS host.
