Following the group's record deal, they released their debut album Ooooooohhh On the TLC Tip which was met with positive reviews and commercial success. The following year, the group began working on the follow-up album; however, the recording process was unproductive due to personal struggles—notably those of group member Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes , who was involved in a volatile romantic relationship and struggling with alcoholism. The album's recording lasted until September , with Lopes being forced to have less input due to being in rehab. The album saw the group reunite with producers Dallas Austin , Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Jermaine Dupri as well as new collaborators Organized Noize and Chucky Thompson , and also featured contributions from Sean "Puffy" Combs who helped with the notable hip hop soul sound.
