TLC AND SHAGGY are prepping a night filled with hits for their upcoming tour. On Monday, the Nineties heroes announced their co-headlining Hot Summer Nights trek, with En Vogue and Sean Kingston as special guests.

If fans are wondering if the artists will include their biggest hits on the setlist, TLC is confirmed to perform songs like “Waterfalls,” “No Scrubs,” “Unpretty,” and “Creep,” while Shaggy will hit the stage with “It Wasn’t Me,” “Boombastic” and “Angel.” As for Kingston, he’ll perform “Beautiful Girls” and “Take You There,” while En Vogue will play “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)” and “Free Your Mind.” - TLC has a laundry bag of Billboard Hot 100 hits across the ’90s and ’00s. Their four chart-toppers include “Creep,” “Unpretty,” “Waterfalls,” and “No Scrubs.” Last June, Chilli, and T-Boz performed at the Hollywood Bowl with Boyz II Men and left the crowd enthralled with their string of classics. The crown jewel of the night came when T-Boz introduced their performance of “Unpretty.” “This next song is near and dear to my heart because I wrote it from my heart. My boyfriend then made me feel like I wasn’t good enough. With social media now, the song still rings true today.” Then to applause, she added, “I kicked his a– to the curb.”

As for Shaggy, the dancehall titan has a bevy of Hot 100 classics, including chart-toppers “Angel” and “It Wasn’t Me.” In a 2021 interview with Billboard, Shaggy spoke on the importance of emerging dancehall artists breaking through. “I want the new generation to stream better than me because it boosts the genre and gives it a seat at the table. It gives us some sort of presence where corporate wants to f–k with us. It helps the culture with tourism. It’s a big part of our economy. When you beat me, that’s when we’re forced to be reckoned with.”

This trek isn’t the first time Chilli and T-Boz have joined other artists for an amphitheater tour — they did so in 2019 when they were joined by Nelly and Flo Rida. The launch of the tour will also coincide with a new TLC documentary, TLC Forever, which premieres June 3 on Lifetime and showcases the girl group’s career and influence.
