TLC's Alternate Version Of Creep Is A Brilliant Blast From R&B's Past! See The Vid HERE!

| Filed under: Music MinuteVH1

Remember the good old days, back when TLC was a band instead of a network? LOLz!!

Nearly twenty years after its release, their seminal album CrazySexyCool remains one of the most fabulous R&B efforts ever recorded!

And we're super-duper excited to have stumbled across one of its previously undiscovered hidden gems!

Ch-ch-check out the rare alternate version of the vid for Creep (above)!

Whoa! This music video is way different than the glitzy, glamorous one MTV played on repeat back in the day!!!

In this ancient interview we also uncovered, the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes cops to hating this version — she DEMANDED the group shoot a new one!!!

Ha! We like it just fine!!

Aww! We miss the glory days of R&B and we can't wait for VH1's upcoming TLC biopic!!!

    On VH1's Behind the Music its been said that Lisa "Left Eye" hated the entire song because of the meaning of it. She wasn't very helpful in the filming process but that's who she was.

    I was going to say what pradagirl17 said about Left Eye hating the song and what it stood for. I recall her saying that on the documentary in South America. She was always my favorite, and I felt guilty earlier jamming to Creep at the gym.

    Thankfully, "CrazySexyCool" ended up scanning near 10 mil albums because legend has it that the group scrapped not one, but, at least two separate videos from this album for over $1 mil each. "Silly HO" began the habit of a "test buzz single" when it failed initially. The label saved face (no pun intended since they recorded for LaFace) by saying it was just a set up record. So there was a scrapped video for that one along with "Waterfalls" also being a very expensive video for its time. But clearly, the released "Creep" video is much more innovative.
