According to one-third of the legendary trio, the video shoot made her come face-to-face with her fear of swimming.
Early Monday afternoon (Oct. 23), T-Boz took to Instagram to share a bit of insight into the making of the video for the Grammy-nominated single with her fans. And, believe it or not, the luxe visual was shot right at Universal Studios in Hollywood. "So, we're at Universal where we shot 'Waterfalls,'" the singer began the video. "And now they have changed the whole thing."
If you can recall, the R&B trio's signature song featured liquefied versions of TLC performing while standing atop an ocean. Under the direction of F. Gary Gray, "Waterfalls" earned four MTV Video Music Awards. "I was in that water with 80 or 800 tons [of water] ... something like that," she continued. "And, I couldn't swim. So, they had all these scuba divers around in case my Black a** fell in. Because you know how they say Black people can't swim? So true."
Unfortunately, the site which is home to musical history has now been renovated into a JAWS attraction based on the Hollywood blockbuster of the same name. Nonetheless, the fact that "Waterfalls" was shot at the popular attraction park is all the more reason to visit.
Take a look at T-Boz's hilarious recollection of the video shoot for "Waterfalls" below.
