(CBS News) Remember "Waterfalls"? What about "No Scrubs?"

Those are just two of the songs you'll hear in the new teaser trailer for VH1's upcoming TV movie "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story."

The trailer, released Thursday, doesn't show much of the bestselling R&B trio's backstory but contains some very accurate reenactments of their performances, music videos and outfits.

Keke Palmer stars in the film as Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, Lil Mama plays the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Drew Sidora portrays Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins.

"CrazySexyCool" was written by screenwriter Kate Lanier ("What's Love Got to Do With It") and directed by Charles Stone III ("Drumline"), with the real Watkins and Thomas serving as executive producers.

The two surviving members of the group have also reunited with L.A. Reid and Epic Records to release an Oct. 15 album of greatest hits and new songs, including "Meant to Be," which was written by Ne-Yo and will play during the TV movie's closing credits.

Lil Mama will also join Watkins and Thomas for a reunion performance Saturday at the Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pa.

"CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story" premieres on VH1 on Oct. 21.
