During the early 1990s, TLC rose to fame and they scored many hits during this period. But, all of this came to an end when TLC’s third member, Left Eye, tragically died. The group has remained a fixture, doing a reality show on UPN, and one a little over a year ago.
J. Cole helped bring TLC back to the spotlight when they appeared on his hit single, “Crooked Smile,” which was off his 2013 album. The song dominated the radio and still gets consistent airplay. Many have questioned how this collaboration came to be.
TLC recently sat down with VladTV, as they have a lot going on. In their latest interview clip, TLC discussed how they ended up working with J. Cole. It turns out, the Fayetteville native reached out to the iconic group and got them to get on the song.
