TLC fans: if you thought you were "chasing waterfalls" when you funded that kickstarter campaign, we have some good news for you. Back in 2015, TLC launched a kickstarter campaign to fund a new album. The campaign raised $430,255, and is still the the most funded in the company's history. Now TLC has announced that the record will be coming out June 30th.
A representative of the band gave an update on their Kickstarter page saying, "Tionne and Chilli have been working night and day to hit this date. The video and a photo shoot on April 18th, 19th, 20th." Adding, "Ed Sheeran gave some of his publishing to the writers of No Scrubs and TLC sold out in London in one minute…it was a blessed month for us and we finally feel a little wind at our back. ONE MORE THING..... We need your help...let's hear your suggestions for the album title! Tionne and Chilli are still undecided so looking to you for inspiration." Visit their Kickstarter and help come up with a title.
TLC currently consists of Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, and they've been a duo since Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopez died in a car accident while on vacation in Honduras back in 2002. The band has not released an album since November of 2002, seven months after Left-Eye passed. That album, 3D, reached number 6 on the Billboard 200 and received two GRAMMY Award nominations.
This is truly an exciting moment for fans of TLC, and we certainly will be lining up for our copy on release day. "No Scrubs" allowed.
