This one never gets old. A real classic, a true anthem :D
I love this video! These girls were so creative :)

I've always liked them better than any other R&B Girlgroup.

Their best song, I really used to put it daily on my Cassette Player!

And no, they are not great in my opinion!

There was something definitely raw and sexy about TLC, I guess they were like the American All Saints, a band that ended prematurely.

I can definitely see the comparisons with All Saints. Both groups were more raw (pure) than Spice Girls or Destiny's Child for example, IMO, and both groups ended too early. I feel there was much more potential for both.

That said - I do think All Saints missed the creativity TLC had. Plus a lot of TLC songs had deeper messages in them. They were truly an inspiration.

This song is really catchy, I really love it, but this empowerment-and-diss anthem gimmick is such a flop in today's music. :lol:

Discovered this song via THIS song. I'd never know it was sample, but I heard it accidentally on TV, and now I founded it.

Cool song :D

Me too. It's so much better than the regular version.

I thought it was such a silly song, i mean what kind of lyrics :lol: what were they thinking they were salt n' pepa?! which i like too btw
The albums started to get some life with Red Light Special with its sexy trashiness and it got to even higher grounds with Waterfalls (both the song and the video)
