It’s no secret that TLC paved the way for many girl groups, including Destiny’s Child. While many would love to believe there to be a little competitive nature between the two female bands, considering their fan base often pits them against one another, TLC surviving members T-Boz and Chilli revealed that DC’s lead singer, Beyonce, actually paid homage to them.
In an interview with The Grio’s Chris Witherspoon, the TLC ladies recalled back in 2011 at the American Idol finale show when Bey approached them backstage to thank them for letting Destiny’s Child open for them in the ’90s for the TLC world tour.
“We were backstage and she walked up to us and was thanking us, and we had never heard that from her before and it was really nice,” Chilli said.
“Her exact words were: ‘Thank you so much, those were some of the best times of my life,” T-Boz added. “Thank you for letting us open up for y’all because that was the best time… one of the best times of my life.’”
