They will continue on in her memory.
The yet-to-be-titled collection will feature the group's most beloved and biggest singles, plus four brand-new songs, including "Meant to Be," which was written by Ne-Yo and will be used during the closing credits of the upcoming VH1 Original Movie, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story.
Another song, "Posh Life," was produced and co-written by Grammy Award-winner Dallas Austin (who co-produced TLC's CrazySexyCool and FanMail) and Lady Gaga.
"It gives me great pleasure to welcome TLC back into the LaFace/Epic Records family," comments L.A. Reid. "TLC is still the most important girl band of all time."
On Monday, October 21, VH1 will premiere its scripted original movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. The film, which chronicles TLC's humble beginnings in Atlanta and unprecedented rise to fame in the '90s.
