AL: You have some pretty classic ’90s heavy hitters with you. TW: It’s always cool hooking back up with your peers, cause throughout the years we’ve all either worked together or ran into each other at some point … It was like real music, real categories that you had to compete with … TW: My playlist is not too much new stuff, honestly … When he came out with “24 Karat Magic,” I was like ‘Oh-em-gee, for reals? [He has] Prince and all that funk covered right now; I love it.Today, TLC has proven longevity, releasing a self-titled album – their fifth and final offering – on June 30. Now 47, Watkins is responsible for many of TLC’s distinct lead vocals, lending a deep, gravelly soul to the popular refrains. I’m so happy it’s out – oh my God, I was so nervous … Everybody’s still doing their thing, and I’ve always loved, like, [fellow tour act] Biz Markie. I got some Drake, Kanye and Jay-Z on there, but not the new stuff; it’s kind of their older stuff.AL: You’ve made an effort to keep Left Eye’s presence alive in the group. Nobody else put in on that, and neither will they ever get in on that. When you come to our shows, you leave with an overall good feeling because you still feel her presence, and we make sure of that. And go buy the album if you don’t have it, because it is the last TLC album. [Watkins’ memoir comes out September 12.] TW: People can pre-order it now, but it’s called “A Sick Life.” It has a dual meaning – not sick as in, yeah, I have sickle cell disease, but sick as in I’ve worked with Michael Jackson, I’ve toured the world; it’s a triumph story.We had a special chemistry that couldn’t be replaced and packaged together even if you tried, there’s no way possible. Whether it’s just “light for Left Eye,” when people put up lighters or their cell phones … Anyone who’s been through anything health-wise – I think it will help a lot of people.
Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins (pictured above left) spoke with The Reporter in advance of the show.
The lineup varies by city, but all stops are headlined by TLC, the best-selling American girl group of all time with over 65 million records sold worldwide.
The original trio, consisting of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, first rose to fame out of Atlanta in the early ’90s, recognized for their unique blend of R&B and hip hop, uninhibited lyrics and ostentatious outfits. AL: If you could come up with a dream ’90s tour other than the one you’re on, what would the lineup be?
TLC earned fans with radio classics like “Waterfalls,” “No Scrubs,” “Creep” and “Unpretty” – all No. In all, the group saw nine songs chart the Top 10 and racked up a bevy of awards – including five MTV Video Music Awards, four Grammys, and three Billboard Music Awards – and dozens more nominations, all cementing their place in the genre’s canon. My daughter’s 16, and she’s doing our makeup out here on the road; I have my whole family here. TW: You’re gonna crack up, but I would pick Nirvana. You know what, a La Face [Records] tour would have been awesome -– Usher, Outkast, TLC. TW: I just would want to do a one-offer, like a Coachella or something with Nirvana, just because it would be cool.
TLC was in the middle of recording their fourth album when Lopes was killed in a car crash in Honduras in 2002. It’s really the energy that you feel from the audience. That is good for me, because I probably wouldn’t function well if I didn’t have my family here with me, but my daughter has to leave pretty soon to go back to high school. After you do the family thing and walk the dog, feed your son, play with him, before you know it it’s time to do meet and greets. That’s when you really had steep competition, and not because of streaming or social media and popularity. AL: Switching gears, what are you listening to right now?
