Music Mondays: TLC – What About Your Friends

TLC-WhatAboutYourFriendsIn honor of TLC’s 20th anniversary and the premiere of their biopic tonight, the song of the week is TLC’s “What About Your Friends.”

Released August 28, 1992, the song reached #7 on theĀ Billboard Hot 100 and #2 on theĀ Hot R&B Singles chart. It was the group’s third consecutive top ten single after “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg” and “Baby-Baby-Baby.”

However, what is most notable about the song was it’s music video. It showcased the bright colors and urban styling that dominated TLC’s Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip era. Their youthful exuberance and playfulness was infectious, and even though their budget was clearly slim, it clearly didn’t faze them. The video even had a cameo from Jermaine Dupri.
