In the run-up to their forthcoming tour, TLC look back at their groundbreaking yet tumultuous career as the biggest-selling American girl group of all time.
Formed in 1990, R&B group TLC were rock ‘n roll from the start. Kicking off their careers in baggy jeans with condoms attached to them, their songs and videos promoted safe sex, women’s pleasure, being yourself and the importance of loyal friendships. They were pioneers in the industry – breaking boundaries and questioning how women, specifically Black women, were seen and portrayed in music. However, behind the hits and Grammys lay chronic illness, abusive relationships, bankruptcy and grief. With exclusive access to the group in the run up to their 2023 tour, Matt Kay’s film captures the essence of musical icons who influenced a generation.
