Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas from the 90’s R&B girl group TLC and Grammy-award winning hip-hop group Naughty By Nature joined us for a nostalgic interview on Sway in the Morning. The legendary acts stopped by to talk about their upcoming “I Love the 90s – The Party Continues” tour. They’ll be hitting the stage on July 7 in Everett, Washington and wrapping up on Sept. 16 in Chicago. The tour will also feature Mark McGrath, Biz Markie, Montell Jordan and more.

We spoke to TLC about their new music and why they decided to create a Kickstarter to fund their new album. “ . . . we realized how much freedom we could have without dealing with a record company . . . and that we could have our fans involved.”

Naughty By Nature breaks down how they’ve maintained longevity in the industry and the process of revolutionizing the concept of branding and promoting.
