TLC is back! The superstar girl group of the 1990s is officially back with new music and a movie. The movie tells there story from the beginning through the trials and tribulations in the music industry. TLC also has plans to go on tour at the beginning of 2014.
Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas said, “we had a great run. To be here two decades later and have another chance to do even more, I feel like the sky is the limit.”
Chilli and Tionne “T Boz” Watkins made a comeback since Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes died in a car crash in 2002, however, the reunion was put on hold due to T-Boz having a brain tumor that blinded her for a short time.
VH-1 premieres “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story” on October 21, at 9p.m. eastern. A new generation of fans will have the opportunity to learn more about TLC. Chilli and T-Boz was closely involved in the production of this movie from start to finish. Actress-singer Keke Palmer plays Chilli, rapper Lil Mama portrays Left Eye and Drew Sidora is T-Boz.
Chilli said, “we spent more time with Lil Mama, since Lisa was not here. So we really had to spend more time with her. She looked at a lot of video footage. She did a lot of research. We are really proud of how she portrayed Lisa, and I know Lisa would be very happy and I know her family would be very happy as well.”
Lil Mama may be on tour with TLC singing as Left Eye to promote there new album set to be released next year. Chilli said, “we’re talking and thinking about it when we go on tour.” Lil Mama performed with Chilli and T-Boz this summer several times.
TLC is not revealing much information about the upcoming album set to be released next year. It’s been a decade since releasing any new music from the group. You can expect lots of features from artists like Lady Gaga. TLC already has a new single called “Meant to Be” that they recorded with Ne-Yo. The song was released this week as part of the soundtrack album for the movie.
Chilli said, “the ballad kind of sums up our 20-year span as a group. It will definitely pull on your heartstrings.” The greatest hits album called “TLC 20” will be available Tuesday. It’s a complication of greatest hits such as “Creep,” “Waterfalls” and “No Scrubs.”
