TLC - Creep (The story behind the song and Left Eye's protest)

Huge Congratulations to TLC. Presently, they are running a Kickstarter campaign (click here) that is independently funding their next record. The response has been overwhelmingly successful and there are still many more days before the campaign is over on Thursday, Feb 19 2015 9:00 AM PST.

Just below is a post we made about TLC back on April 12, 2013.  Enjoy!

TLC is Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, rapper Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas

The song Creep by TLC was on the groups CrazySexyCool album and was released as a single on Halloween day of 1994. It earned the group a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals in 1995. The writer and producer of the song, Dallas Austin, also earned a Grammy nomination for best R&B song.

A interesting story about this song came out in the documentary, The Last Days of Left Eye, devoted to the now deceased member of TLC, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, who very unfortunately died in a car accident in 2002 while driving in Honduras. The car she was driving flipped, threw her from the car and killed her.

In the documentary Left Eye said she was 100% against the release of "Creep" as a single, and threatened to wear black tape over her mouth in the music video. She thought that when a girl finds out that her man is cheating on her, the girl better leave rather than cheat back.

This is a timeless song from a great R&B era. Turn it up and enjoy! GC
