News: TLC Returns To @Billboard ‘R&B/Hip-Hop’ Top 10

TLC secures a Billboard ‘Hot R&B/Hip-Hop’ top 10 spot.

R&B trio TLC has jumped back into the Billboard ‘Hot R&B/Hip-Hop’ top 10 for the first time since 1999. Appearing on J.Cole’s “Crooked Smile”, the Born Sinner featured track jumped from the 12th spot to number 9, securing a top 10 berth. TLC’s last trip to this top 10 chart position was in 1999, when “Unpretty” peaked at the number 4 spot. Congratulations to TLC & J.Cole, read more details below.

As for the most top 10s by female groups since Nielsen data began powering Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in December 1992, TLC passes SWV and now trails only Destiny’s Child, which scored 11. TLC has three chart-toppers to its name: “Baby-Baby-Baby” (1992), “Creep” (1994) and “No Scrubs” (1999). With an as-yet-untitled album featuring four new songs due Oct. 15 on Epic, TLC could yet tie, or even break, Destiny’s Child record in upcoming months.

A trio in its hit-making heyday composed of singers Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and rapper Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, TLC has been a duo of T-Boz and Chilli since the 2002 death of Lopes. In addition to its forthcoming set, TLC’s comeback will include a VH1 biopic and live performances featuring Lil Mama temporarily filling Lopes’ shoes.

Here’s a look at TLC’s 10 top 10s on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs:

Title, Peak Position, Peak Date
“Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg,” No. 2, April 4, 1992
“Baby-Baby-Baby,” No. 1 (two weeks), Aug. 8, 1992
“What About Your Friends,” No. 2, Nov. 11, 1992
“Creep,” No. 1 (nine weeks), Dec. 10, 1994
“Red Light Special,” No. 3, March 18, 1995
“Waterfalls,” No. 4, July 8, 1995
“Diggin’ On You,” No. 7, Jan. 6, 1996
“No Scrubs,” No. 1 (five weeks), April 10, 1999
“Unpretty,” No. 4, Sept. 18, 1999
“Power Trip” (J. Cole featuring TLC), No. 9 (to date), Sept. 21, 2013

On the Billboard Hot 100, “Power Trip” rises 44-37 to give TLC its first top 40 hit on the chart since 2002, when “Girl Talk” peaked at No. 28. That song was the lead single off the group’s last album, “3D,” which opened at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 with 143,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan (Nov. 30, 2002).
