If you missed TLC in action last weekend in San Diego, you missed out on a fantastic show!

The girls were part of this years KAABOO Del Mar 3-day music festival, and they shared the stage on the final day of the event on September 16 with Wiz Khalifa, Slash, Jewel and Katy Perry!

TLC and Katy Perry had some catching up backstage. Katy was famously named as one of the backers for TLC’s Kickstarter campaign in 2015, which funded last years self-titled album. (They have vowed to still make that slumber party happen!)

TLC, who usually perform last at the shows they headline, performed at a much earlier time, kicking off their set at 2:45PM, something they aren’t planning on getting used to. Nonetheless, they put on an amazing show,  performing their hits back-to-back and taking the crowd Way Back!

Katy Perry closed the show with a final 90 minute performance of her Witness world tour, complete with 5 costume changes and plenty of, yes, Fireworks.

Watch the full TLC set below:

The latest album ‘Scorpion‘ by the amazing Drake has just hit the streets  (June 29), and it wouldn’t be the same without a little mention of TLC!

On the dark and moody track ‘After Hours’, where Drake is keeping an eye on his love interest as he fears she might be drifting from him, he references Left Eye and the TLC #1 smash, ‘Creep‘.

Late night like Left Eye, I’m creepin’, assuming the worst ’cause I haven’t heard from you all weekend“, Drake croons.

Drake’s love for TLC is no secret. He covered their iconic ‘Fanmail’ track back in 2010, and invited the ladies to perform at his OVO Fest in 2013.

One thing that definitely stood out on the slick production was some very distinct high vocals! T-Boz assured us that those high vocals were her own, and Jovan confirmed it was all T!

Everytime I do higher notes they think it’s not me!” T-Boz stated. “They’re gonna think it’s a background singer or something. Can you tell them that I can sing high myself?

She can sing! She has range” Jovan says. “She actually shocked me and my engineer Larry. She can sing them higher notes“.

Ray ‘Misster Ray’ Cunningham and the Roll Out Show‘s Nikki Pam also stopped by at the studio to show T-Boz some love!

We cannot wait to hear the finished song, it already sounds like a smash in the making! Stay tuned to find out when it will be released!

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!
