What happens when you mix a Spice Girl with the “L” in TLC? Greatness. Greatness happens.
TLC was originally named "2nd Nature."
"2nd Nature" was the idea of then-teenaged Crystal Jones — the "C" before being replaced by Chili. The name change was the idea of manager Perri "Pebbles" Reid (thank you Pebbles.) Oddly enough, the name was adopted by a short lived all-male R&B group three years later so I guess they made the right move.
Cee Lo Green sang on "Waterfalls."
Before Gnarls Barkley, when the music world was largely unfamiliar with Cee Lo Green as a singer, the rapper had a guest spot on "Waterfalls," TLC's most famous hit. The guy was meant for greatness!

CrazySexyCool was the first record made the female group to go diamond.
Diamond is a term created by the RIAA in 1999 to certify when a record sells over ten million copies. CrazySexyCool helped solidify TLC's place as the best selling female group of all time.
TLC recorded the theme for Nickeloden’s All That.
The teen comedy sketch ran for 10 seasons, and with it, the unforgettable (and classically TLC) theme... not to mention Left Eyes' incredible rap verse. We all of that!
