CrazySexyCool
rnb 90s Hip-Hop female vocalists pop


"Creep" is the lead single by American girl group TLC from their second album, CrazySexyCool. The song became their first #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and remained there for four weeks. It was nominated for two Grammy Awards at the 1996 Grammy Awards, winning the Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. It was the third most successful single of 1995, finishing behind their other successful hit, "Waterfalls", on the 1995 Billboard Year-End Hot 100 Charts. The song was written and produced by Dallas Austin and samples "Hey Young World" by Slick Rick. Its lyrics are taken from the perspective of a woman who is aware of her boyfriend's infidelity and in turn cheats on him in an effort to appease her need for affection. Lead vocals are performed by TLC member Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins. In the documentary The Last Days of Left Eye, TLC member Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes said she was 100% against the release of "Creep" as a single, and threatened to wear black tape over her mouth in the music video. She thought that when a girl finds out that her man is cheating on her, the girl better leave rather than cheat back. There were three music videos made for this song between June and August 1994, with the third video being released on September 16, 1994. The video features each girl individually in front of a color background wearing silky pajamas, though it was only Chilli who had two different pajamas that were gray and pink, with T-Boz in blue and Left Eye in red. There are other scenes featuring T-Boz singing into a microphone with Omar Lopez, a previous dancer for Janet Jackson, with an open shirt, playing trumpet behind her and flirting with her. There are also black and white shots of them rehearsing dance moves, being silly and hanging out. The song was nominated for two Grammys at the 1996 Grammy Awards: Best R&B Song (for songwriter Dallas Austin) and Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals, winning the latter.

Creep - TLC

[Intro:]

Yes it's me again
And I'm back
Oh I oh I oh I yeah
Oh I oh I oh I baby
Oh I oh I oh I yeah

[Verse:]
The 22nd of lonliness
And we've been through so many things
I love my man with all honesty
But I know he's cheatin' on me
I look him in his eyes
But all he tells me is lies to keep me near
I'll never leave him down
Though I might mess around
It's only cause I need some affection oh

[Chorus:]
So I creep yeah
Just keep it on the down low
Said nobody is supposed to know
So I creep yeah
'Cause he doesn't know what I do
And no attention goes to show
Oh so I creep

[Verse 2:]
The 23rd of lonliness
And we don't talk like we used to do
Now it seems pretty strange
But I'm not buggin' cause I still feel the same
Yeah yeah
I'll keep giving loving 'til the day he pushes me away
Never go astray
If he knew the things I did
He couldn't handle it
And I choose to keep him protected
Oh

[Chorus x2]
So I creep yeah
Just keep it on the down low
Said nobody is supposed to know
So I creep yeah
'Cause he doesn't know what I do
And no attention goes to show
Oh so I creep

(I think about us baby
All the time
But you know that I'm gonna need some attention
Yeah yeah can you dig it
Love you forever baby
Soul & mind
And you gotta know if you don't give it
Umma get mine

Oh I oh I oh I yeah
Oh I oh I oh I baby
Oh I oh I oh I yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

[Chorus:]
So I creep yeah
Just keep it on the down low
Said nobody is supposed to know
So I creep yeah
'Cause he doesn't know what I do
And no attention goes to show
Oh so I creep
(x2 - I creep around because I need attention
Don't mess around with my affection)

Oh I oh I oh I yeah

[Chorus:]
So I creep yeah
Just keep it on the down low
Said nobody is supposed to know
So I creep yeah
'Cause he doesn't know what I do
And no attention goes to show
Oh so I creep
(Repeat Until Fades)
