Remember the R&B group “TLC”? You should because they were epic and now…
…they are reuniting to make their final album with funding from Kickstarter!
Kickstarter is a crowdfunding website where campaigns are started and anyone can donate to become a “backer” of any campaign of their choice. I’ve talked about Kickstarter a lot on here and most recently how “Music” was the top funded category of 2014!

TLC is arguably one of the best girl groups of all-time! They were formed in the year of my birth…1990…in the home to R&B and Hip Hop music: Atlanta, Georgia.
The girls went on to have ten Top 10 singles in the US (four of which went to #1), four multi-platinum albums, and won five Grammy awards! They have sold 65 million records WORLDWIDE!!!
Let’s talk a trip down memory lane with their hit song “No Scrubs”:
That song will be in my head all week and possibly all year now! HAHA It’s sooooo infectious and I think it’s one of the catchiest/coolest songs of all-time!
I was very young when they were in their prime in the 90’s but I do remember how hot they were! Everyone was listening to them and talking about them! They were “trending” as we would say today 😉
The group was formed of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, rapper Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and singer Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas. In a tragic accident, Left Eye was killed in a car crash while on vacation in Honduras in 2002. I was only 12 at the time of her death, but I do remember there being a gloominess over the music industry at that time. She was an incredible rapper and will always be missed.
In the about section on TLC’s Kickstarter campaign, the girls describe this new venture like so: “This album, our FINAL ALBUM, is dedicated to all of you that have stuck with us, always challenging us to do our best. And of course, it’s for the new fans too! 😉 We just want to put out great music that touches everyone. That’s it.”

I’m proud of them for doing a final album and I certainly hope there will be a farewell tour to accompany it! They deserve a final hoorah after their impressive run as a group!
So far, $33,134 has been raised of their $150,000 goal but there are 30 days to go and I’m positive they will get funded to make their final album 🙂
Congratulations TLC on your final album & I can’t wait to hear the finished product!
