"Unpretty," TLC 

"Unpretty" by TLC was originally built off of a poem and eventually dominated the charts, becoming the group's fourth number-one single in the U.S, spending three weeks at that top spot. It was the group's second number-one hit off their album Fanmail, and continues to serve as an impactful pick-me-up. It even inspired J. Cole's "Crooked Smile," which now features the group.
