On the 26th of July TLC, the holy trifecta of ‘90s girl pop that was sadly stolen away from us in 2002, will perform at Mixtape Festival at Hershey Park in Pennsylvania.
Although the former group could not re-unite for this one nigh spectacular, to fill in for the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, TLC members, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozanda “Chili” Thomas, have called upon 23-year-old Lil Mama. The rapper will also portray Lopes in VH1’s upcoming TLC biopic CrazySexyCool: the TLC Story alongside Keke Palmer as Chili and Drew Sidora as T-Boz.
No matter where you stand on the issue of ‘90s pop groups reforming, it’s clear Mama has some big, big neon parachute pants to fill. Can Lil Mama really fill those 90’s platform boats, pitted against the Left Eye of the two ladies’; looking at each other Mama’s got more than just the correct first initial.
Well it’s up to you …
I reckon Lil Mama’s got what it takes to join the silver pants club – whether she’s just going to have to loosen up a little is another persons opinion. If she’s got you planning to jump on the next train to PA or spend the night in your room watching “Waterfalls” on YouTube…like back in 1990’s shout yes! for TLC making it back into our chart toppers.
