Music video by TLC performing Dear Lie. (C) 2000 LaFace Records LLC.
"Dear Lie" is a R&B ballad written by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Tionne Watkins for TLC's third studio album FanMail (1999). It was produced by Babyface and released as the album's third single on November 30, 1999. Though the song managed to enter the top 40 in the Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland and the UK, where it spent five non-consecutive weeks inside the top forty, longer than some of the band's highest charting singles there, it was widely considered a minor success compared to previous hits "No Scrubs" and "Unpretty", peaking at number 51 on the Billboard Hot 100. A music video was filmed but not aired in the U.S., it was only shown in Europe. "Dear Lie" was not featured on TLC's greatest hits albums Now and Forever: The Hits (2003) or Crazy Sexy Hits: The Very Best of TLC (2007).
