Through a connection at the hair salon where Watkins worked  the group eventually managed to arrange an audition with singer Perri "Pebbles" Reid , who had started her own management and production company, Pebbitone. Impressed by the girls, Reid renamed the group TLC-Skee, with "TLC" being an Initialism for the names Tionne, Lisa, and Crystal. Reid arranged an audition for them with local record label LaFace Records , run by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Reid's then-husband, Antonio "L.A." Reid.
Antonio Reid saw potential in Watkins and Lopes as performers, but felt that Jones should be replaced. According to Jones, things began to unravel for her after Pebbles denied the group the opportunity to take home the contracts that Pebbitone had drafted. Jones did not want to sign before having the contract reviewed by others and perhaps a lawyer.  In contrast, Watkins' recollection of Jones' departure is that both she and Lopes asked Jones to leave the group before their initial contracts were negotiated. 
On February 28, 1991, Watkins and Lopes signed production , management, and publishing deals with Pebbitone,  with Perri Reid becoming their general manager. As they looked for a replacement for Jones, the two-member TLC-Skee made its first recorded appearance on a track for LaFace act Damian Dame 's self-titled 1991 LP.  Pebbles found the third member in Rozonda Thomas , one of Damian Dame's part-time backup dancers.
