Turns out Justin Timberlake is a TLC fan. In a video posted to his Instagram account on Friday (Aug. 27), the “SexyBack” singer is chilling in a studio during what appears to be a recording session, before busting out in song to none other than TLC’s 1999 hit “No Scrubs.”
In the clip — simply captioned “Still hits” — Timberlake is sitting next to Ant Clemons (singer-songwriter and former Kanye West collaborator), who assists him with singing the song in unison. Grammy-winning pop producer Angel Lopez strums the tune of “No Scrubs” on his guitar in the background, while critically acclaimed producer Timbaland (a four-time Grammy winner) stares intently at his computer and keyboard setup as the shenanigans ensue behind him.
“Yo, that song is still dope,” Timberlake seems to say in the video after breaking into a fit of laughter with Clemons, who agrees.
Also amused was Anderson .Paak, who commented, “If y’all don’t stop getting on @timbaland nerves” with a laughing-crying emoji.
TLC’s “No Scrubs” was released as the lead single from their third studio album, Fanmail, in 1999. Following its release, the track became a hit for the girl group and earned them a coveted No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. “No Scrubs” ultimately stayed on the all-genre chart for 28 weeks, earned TLC a Grammy award for best R&B performance by a duo or group with vocal at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards, and continues to be hailed as one of the girl group’s signature songs.
