One of the most monumental girl groups of all time was born in Atlanta, Georgia in the year 1990, when Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas officially came together as TLC. They debuted with their album Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip, then followed it up with the iconic CrazySexyCool. And just when people weren't sure what would happen after a whole five-year hiatus, the group released FanMail in 1999—the album that gave us anthems like "No Scrubs" and "Unpretty." Now, FanMail officially turns 20, and fans are celebrating the Grammy Award-winning platinum record that Tionne, Lisa, and Chilli dedicated to them.

In an interview with MTV back in 1999, Lisa explains that FanMail was a love letter to their fans, especially those who sent them fan mail during their hiatus. "They have supported us through everything," she said. "It's not just the 'I like your CD' kind of mail. It's 'Tionne, how are you? How's your Sickle Cell doing?' It's 'Lisa, why'd you burn down Andre's house?' It's 'Chilli, congratulations on your new baby.'"

Here are some of the best tweets remembering this major music moment, and its twenty-year milestone:
