TLC Raised $430,000 For Their Fifth & Final Album.

According to The Guardian, the group announced their comeback in January by asking fans to help raise $150,000 for the project. This total was surpassed within three days, but the R&B duo’s members T-Boz and Chilli promised to spend any extra funds on the record, saying: “The more funds that we raise means more access to the best producers, writers and talent in the business!!!”

On concluding their fundraising push, the band released a statement that said: “Thank you to everyone who has donated to our final album!! The amount doesn’t matter but the fact that you donated means the world to us.”

TLC’s swansong LP will be their first album since 2002’s 3D, which was released shortly before the death of founding member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes in a car crash. She was 30 years old. During their 90s heyday, TLC were regarded as one of the most influential R&B groups, with their hits including Creep, Waterfalls and No Scrubs.

In order to raise the money, the band had been offering fans rewards for pledges including exclusive remixes, voicemails from group members and even a “TLC slumber party” with T-Boz.

According to reports, Katy Perry and New Kids on the Block were among the 4,201 donors that helped fund the project.

At present, Ron Fair has signed up to the project as an executive producer, while rumours are circulating that the duo will be working with some high-profile names.
