No Scrubs is a 1999 R&B song recorded by American girl group TLC, for their third studio album FanMail. It was written by Kandi Burus, Tameka Cottle and Kevin Briggs (who also handled the production).
On February 2, 1999, the track was released as the album’s lead single and garnered recommendable success internationally.
No Scrubs became TLC’s third number-one single, topping all the charts in the US, the UK R&B chart as well as charts in New Zealand, Ireland, Australia and Canada (all of where it has been certified platinum).
This is also one song that has been heavily covered / sampled by a whole lot of artists.
Finally, TLC were that good. Yep, they were.
