TLC “Waterfalls”
All-female hip-hop trio TLC tackled the theme of AIDS in their 1995 mega-hit “Waterfalls.” The song’s second verse addresses infidelity and unprotected sex depicting a man who cheats on the woman who loves him only to contract HIV/AIDS.

“One day he goes and take a glimpse in the mirror / But he doesn’t recognize his own face / His health is fading and he doesn’t know why3 letters took him to his final resting place.”
