TLC plans new album 10 years after loss of 'Left Eye'
The surviving members of the world-renowned R&B group TLC have confirmed new album plans 10 years after the passing of fellow band-mate Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.
TLC’s original lineup was one of the most influential and best selling acts of the 1990s; with classic songs like “No Scrubs” and “Waterfalls.”
Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins revealed their news at the Mobo Awards in Liverpool, while announcing a new tour and upcoming VH1 biopic, which they will executive produce.
When asked how they would adjust to the more modern pop genre, T-Boz said:
“We’re going to still sound like TLC, evolving to whatever level we need to be at this time. We’ve always grown throughout the years and have always had our own sound. That’s what works for us and we don’t have to worry about anybody else. When that stops working, maybe we’ll hang up the towel, but that still works. We have to get into the studio and start feeling how we feel. You have to find yourself first and then you find the path and then you have an album before you know it.”
It has been rumored that Left Eye Lopes will appear on tour with TLC as a holographic projection, like the Tupac Shakur hologram that stole the show at the Coachella Festival.
