"What about your friends..." Remember that? Or how about "Waterfalls" or "Unpretty?" TLC was one of the biggest girl groups selling over 6 million copies of their debut album worldwide and becoming the first female group to have an album certified diamond by the RAA thanks to their second album, CrazySexyCool. Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas were a force to be reackoned with. Sadly, Left Eye died in a tragic car accident while visiting Honduras in 2002. Despite all the hardships, TLC was ranked one of the greatest musical trios by Billboard magazine and won five Grammy Awards.
