When Did Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas Join TLC?

In the ’90s, Chilli struck music-scene gold when she joined TLC – undisputedly *the* girl group of their era. Their funky dance moves, out-of-this world fashion sense and charting hits were a recipe for success that catapulted them to stardom in Atlanta, Georgia.

Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes had initially found success together in 2nd Nature, but it wasn’t until they broke away from their third counterpart Crystal Jones to join forces with Chilli that TLC arrived. With the release of their debut album Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip in 1992, this fresh trio started a sensational streak throughout much of The ’90s!

Chilli’s 2020 interview with Gal-dem gave us a glimpse of her fond reflections on the band’s first record – giving everyone an inside scoop about their musical beginnings.

It was a conscious decision to just be authentic ourselves and just hope that people would be able to relate to us just being real. We knew there was a whole crew of women that felt the same way as we did – and still do – and when we saw [the response] it was like, ‘wow, we made the right decision2


TLC captured the world’s imagination starting in 1992, going on to deliver five groundbreaking albums – CrazySexyCool, FanMail 3D and TLC. Along their impressive trajectory they created timeless hits like “No Scrubs”, “Waterfalls” ,  “Creep” and “What About Your Friends”. Truly unforgettable!

After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1995, TLC faced significant adversity. In a heartbreaking tragedy, Lopes’ life was cut short by an unexpected car crash in 2002. Undeterred, Chilli and Tionne continued to march forward with their solo endeavors while also preserving the legacy of the group as a duo – culminating into releasing their album ‘TLC’ nearly two decades later in 2017.

Has Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas Won Awards?

In 1996 and 2000, the legendary R&B girl group TLC had a musical double-whammy at the Grammys. They won Best Album for CrazySexyCool and their single “Creep” nabbed them an award as well…then four years later they repeated history as FanMail earned them another accolade along with banger “No Scrubs.” On top of that huge honor, in 2022 TLC was immortalized by induction into The Black Music & Entertainment Walk of Fame – talk about leaving behind a legacy!

Did Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas Have Her Own TV Show?

In 2010, Chilli ventured into the world of reality TV in her eponymous series What Chilli Wants. Her quest for true love began after she experienced a heartbreaking split from Usher – whom years later she still referred to as “real love” during an interview with Essence magazine.

After two years of flirty fun, Chilli and Usher’s romantic relationship ended abruptly in 2003 amidst rumors that the R&B star wasn’t being a one-woman man. Though many eyebrows were raised at the time, Chilli has graciously kept quiet on what really went down – all while continuing to express fondness for her ex over the years.

After her two-year quest for true love on a hit reality show came to an end, she found it with none other than Boy Meets World star Matthew Lawrence. Their relationship was made official in the new year of 2023 and they’ve been happily together ever since!
