Lifetime released the trailer Tuesday for TLC Forever, an upcoming documentary special featuring TLC members Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas telling their story in their own words.

The teaser explores the iconic R&B group’s rise to massive success and the internal conflicts that threatened to tear them apart.

“No matter what we went through, we never questioned the love,” Chilli says in the video.

Formed in Atlanta in 1990, TLC consisted of T-Boz, Chilli, and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. The trio sold more than 85 million records worldwide, won four Grammy Awards, five MTV Video Music Awards, and five Soul Train Music Awards. Over the years, they landed nine top-ten hits, including the #1 singles “Creep,” “Waterfalls,” “No Scrubs,” and “Unpretty.”

But the group members didn’t always get along.

“How are we supposed to fight against the world if we’re fighting internally?” T-Boz asks in the trailer.

With their hit songs came fallouts, bankruptcy, and illness. When Left Eye died in 2002, the group faced more uncertainty. Now they are looking toward the future and a new tour.

TLC Forever comes from executive producer Roger Ross Williams. The film was first announced in 2020, but faced numerous delays.

The documentary is produced by One Story Up and Lauren Fulton for Lifetime and A&E Network. Matthew Kay directs. Additional executive producers include and Geoff Martz, Tionne Watkins, Rozonda Thomas, Bill Diggins, Rick Krim, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Brad Abramson.

TLC Forever will simulcast on Lifetime and sister network A&E on Saturday, June 3 at 8pm ET/PT.
