Behind the song: ''No Scrubs'' by TLC
''No Scrubs'' is an empowerment anthem. When we are performing it, I look out in the audience and say this cool little speech about certain guys you got to stay away from. Scrubs are like roaches. You can never get them under control completely. They just won’t die. They just keep multiplying. That’s why you just got to stay away from them suckers!'' - Chilli
''There’s so many songs that are negative towards women and you don’t hear a lot of females saying, “We’ve got to do an anti version of that one.” So it’s funny that you have these guys that want to flip “No Scrubs” real quick. They can’t take the heat! I just knew that our song hit some real nerves. I love when guys sing that song. Any man that can sing “No Scrubs” comfortably, he is definitely not a scrub, or he’s a reformed scrub. Those days are far behind him and he’s like, “I can sing this proudly!'' - Chilli
''The reason I knew the song was going to be big because what it’s talking about is so relatable to every woman in America. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, scrubs come in all shapes, sizes and colors. So it was just a universal song that every woman can high-five each other with. It was a winner.'' - Chilli
