EDITORS’ NOTES

TLC didn’t just name their long-awaited third LP in honor of their supporters—the opening title track, a slick number with stuttering Y2K beats, is an explicit dedication to fans. The album covers the spectrum of late-’90s R&B, bringing together twitchy, stylized futurism, sensual Babyface-produced ballads, and propulsive jams. From T-Boz going deep on the lilting “Unpretty” to Chilli giving a deadbeat lover the ultimate kiss-off on the perennial sing-along “No Scrubs,” the trio radiates an earthy authenticity that makes Fanmail hit home.
