Biography

Chilli's silky vocals added a dose of sensuality to the high-energy hits released by Grammy Award-winning group TLC. Along with Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes and Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins, the Atlanta-born singer with the youthful and exuberant vibe debuted the single "Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg" (1992), which introduced the sassy trio's brightly colored outfits that matched their ready-to-party personalities to the world. Chilli's smooth vocals brought out a softer side to the group, which also showcased T-Boz's soulful swagger and Left Eye's rap-funk playfulness. The group's journey to the top hit a few speed bumps along the way, from issues with management to Left Eye's headline-making arrest in 1994 for arson. TLC made a triumphant comeback with its landmark album CrazySexyCool (1994), featuring the hit singles "Creep" and "Waterfalls." They earned more accolades for their third album FanMail (1999), but the group's success came to an abrupt end when Left Eye died in a car accident in Honduras in 2002. Chilli and T-Boz carried on their late bandmate's legacy, but TLC was never the same. After a few years away from the spotlight, the singer produced and starred on her own reality series "What Chilli Wants" (VH1, 2010), where she opened up about her personal life and experiences as a member of one of the most influential and successful female groups of all time.
