In an effort to try to grasp the new generation of music during the ’90s, my mother latched on to TLC. And from there, my love for T-Boz was born. “What About Your Friends” from their debut album, Ooooooohhh…On The TLC Tip, receives the royal treatment mainly due to the fact it popped up randomly during a recent YouTube binge. If this doesn’t take you back in time with a smile on your face, not much else will.
That dance move starting at the 1:14 mark is still a classic ’90s number. I wasn’t old enough, but I’m sure that was hit at every party between the years of 1992-1994; I bet Gotty™ even did it once or twice. To the ladies of TLC, more importantly, I leave you with this. Chili, here’s to nothing but the best on your continued quest for a soulmate. T-Boz, you know I’ll always have love for you boo. And, Left Eye, rest in peace.
Happy early 2012, everybody! I’ll probably be too drunk to say it come Saturday night.
