Cardi B teased fans with a throwback picture of TLC on Instagram ahead of her Coachella performance tonight (April 15), hinting that her show would contain something TLC-related!
Well, the surprise was in the form of her outfit! Cardi B decided to rock a TLC-inspired outfit, similar to what the girls wore at the 1996 Grammy Awards!
She also rocked a Left Eye inspired hairdo, similar to Lisa’s look in the “Dear Lie” music video!
Cardi B performed all of her hit singles, including her recent hit “Finesse“, the record breaking “Bodak Yellow“, new single “Be Careful“, and fan favorites from her latest album, including “Drip” and “Best Life“.
Guests on stage included G-Eazy (“No Limit“), 21 Savage (“Bartier Cardi”), Kelhani (“Ring”), Chance The Rapper (“Best Life”) and YG (“She Bad”).
Congratulations for putting on a great performance, Cardi B! You didn’t miss a beat, baby bump and all!
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.”
With all the love and appreciative respect between TLC and Cardi B, it wouldn’t be so unimaginable to hope the girls unite musically to create some magic!
Maybe on a remix or something completely new! Either way, we love seeing all the love and support between the ladies!
Cardi B finally gave her fans what they have been waiting for this week, with the highly anticipated release of her debut album ‘Invasion of Privacy‘.
Following the TLC mention in the album’s latest single ‘Be Careful‘, Cardi B continues to address the members of TLC on her album!
On the track ‘Thru Your Phone‘, Cardi B gives a nod to the legendary Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes!
The lyrics go: “I cannot stand you, right hand to Jesus, I might just cut all the tongues from your sneakers, smash your TV from Best Buy, you gonna turn me into Left Eye!”
Be sure to check the album out and let us know your thoughts!
Side note: Would you be here for a TLC collab with Cardi B?
The legendary Meshell Ndegeocello returns this year with a stunning collection of unique alternative covers of her favorite songs from the 80s and 90s on the album, Ventriloquism.
The lead single lifted from the project is a beautiful rendition of the monster hit ‘Waterfalls‘ by TLC.
Meshell once collaborated with TLC back in 1995 on the soundtrack to the movie, Panther, on the single “Freedom“, featuring every major R&B female artist at the time from Aaliyah and Mary J Blige to Salt N Pepa and SWV.
Have a listen to the track and let us know your thoughts!

A portion of the profits of the album will go to the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union).
