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.”

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!

He decided to give into huge demand from the TLC Army to hear the demo he cut for TLC’s last album, the amazing heartfelt track “One Last Song“, written by Quinton Storm and Leon Monroe!

Produced by Phase, Quinton recalls how the song was created. “I remember us writing and recording this reference like it was yesterday! We wrote and recorded this in an hour and a half. As fans of the music we wanted to capture that CrazySexyCool feeling. Something catchy and nostalgic, with live instrumentation and warm vocals!“.

Quinton states they wanted something that TLC fans could rock with at a show while holding up their phones, we definitely feel he caught that energy on the track perfectly!

Lyrics

TLC…TLC…TLC

Sixty-five Million Records sold
And that’s all because of you
Ten top 10 singles
Four number ones
Where would we be without you, our day ones?
You had our backs ever since this begun
Sold out tours around the world
We hit the charts around the world

We sung a lot of songs
But don’t none of them hit you like this one
We been together so long
It wasn’t easy but we made it so much fun
This one’s for you…TLC will live on
So we’re gonna sing one last song
You sing it with me
Cause we’re gonna make the whole world sing along

Sing along sing along oh
Yeah we’re gonna make the whole world sing along
Sing along sing along oh
Cause we’re gonna make the whole world sing along

It’s been over twenty years
Girl I love you deeper than a friend
My sister that’s you
We fuss and we fight and we always get back tight
Who would’ve thought we’d be her?
This ain’t goodbye, it’s see you later
Our legacy will last forever

*Hook*

Oh, oh we miss you Lisa
Oh, we miss you Lisa
Oh…oh we gon’ ride it till the will fall off
We gon’ ride till the will fall off

*Hook*
