CrazySexyCool August: No Scrubs

Released: January 23, 1999
Album: Fanmail
Charts: # 1 Hot 100 (# 1 R&B)
The 1st single from Fanmail became just about one of the biggest female anthems their will ever be, and got plenty of men all shook up.  No Scrubs has Chilli, for the 1st time on a TLC single singing lead, describe the type of low standard man she will not give the time of day.  It became another #1 song for TLC.  At the time of its release, it was the most played song in radio history.  The song won the group another Grammy for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or a Group with Vocals.  In TLC grand fashion, the music video did not disappoint either.  It shows the group in a futuristic, spaceship-like setting, and it won the ladies a MTV VMA for Best Group Video.
