TLC has had a tough year. After the tragic death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, Chilli and T-Boz had to decide if they wanted to continue making music without her. They had been in the middle of recording songs for a new album when she died, so they figured they would finish it. The result is 3D, which is amazing.
3D proves that the two remaining members of TLC were able to pick up the pieces and move on after Left Eye’s death. Read on to learn more about it!


1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

TLC has always been one of the most interesting groups in the music business. Following the group has been like watching a soap opera, because the three women have been through so much drama. In addition to Left Eye being convicted of arson after she burned her boyfriend’s house down, T-Boz had to battle a life threatening sickness. The band also had to file for bankruptcy because they had no money.
After all they’ve been through, TLC still makes great music. Their new album features many good songs, the best of which may be the first single, “Girl Talk.”
Check out some of the lyrics:
Girls talkin’ got ya all caught out there
Why you thinkin’ that it’s all about ya
Forget she told me everything about ya
But the girls are talkin’
The girls are talkin’
Girls talk about the booty too
About the way a brother is hangin’ too
When you didn’t think that nobody knew
You see the girls are talkin’
The girls are talkin’
“Girl Talk” is about the things that girls talk about when they’re talking about guys. It’s full of funny comments and lots of hip slang.

I’ve been a huge TLC fan since their first album. The great thing is, I think their music has gotten better each time they’ve made new records. 3D is no exception. It’s one of my favorite albums of the year. The lyrics are hilarious and the music is very catchy.
If you’re a pop music fan, you’ll love 3D. Don’t miss it!
Rock on,
