TLC On New Project: “We’re In Talks With L.A Reid”

 TLC On New Project: Were In Talks With L.A Reid

TLC are coming back!

Well- at least if a recent interview with our friends over at Essence is anything to go by.

Sitting down with the mag to discuss the tenth anniversary of Left Eye‘s passing, the ladies spoke openly on their future plans, and why a new TLC LP is looking more likelier than ever.

Details below…

In the interview, T Boz said of their upcoming bio-pic:

It’s going to have to be new kids; I can’t think of anybody that can play us. It’s not just about looking like me or dressing like me, you have to have the attitude, the dance moves. The writer of the biopic, Kate Lanier, is amazing. She did the movies Set It Off and What’s Love Got to Do With It. Hopefully the movie will be out before the end of the year.

On discovering Lisa had died:

She died a day before my birthday. I remember everything. I was with security in my Porsche and I said to them, “I feel like I’m going to get in a wreck and I want to go home”.

The driver said: “Well, that’s on the other side of town.” I didn’t care; I wanted to go home. I just felt something was going to happen to me, but it wasn’t me — it was Lisa.

I was sitting in a rocking chair in my daughter’s room after putting her down when I got a call from Chilli. She was screaming. I had just gotten out the hospital from fighting sickle cell so I had to be careful about getting upset. Everybody was trying to keep me calm. 

I remember staying up all night and Patti Labelle and Missy Elliot calling me. Whitney Houston was at Lisa’s funeral. She sat behind me and rubbed my shoulders for two hours, while telling me, “It’s going to be okay, it’s going to be all right.” Right before that, I remember Lisa played a trick where she went missing and nobody knew where she was.

This was the one time I wish she was joking and doing one of her stunts, but she wasn’t. 

On reports the group was feuding when she died:
No matter what, everyone will go through a disagreement — that’s what makes us all different. So it’s unrealistic to tell anybody that we all agreed with everything that everyone did or said.

That doesn’t happen in a real relationship. At the time, she just didn’t agree with what the record company was doing with the project, so she felt strong about standing up about it. It had nothing personal to do with the group members. I didn’t have a problem with that.

Then, delivering the news fans have waited years for, Chilli announced:

Another TLC album? Yes, that’s for sure! We’ll have new music right after the movie drops. We have everybody that was there with us from the beginning on board. We’ll definitely have a tour; I just don’t know what we’ll call it yet.

Full interview here.

Are you checking for a new TLC album?

    Yay! I would call it something like, “Back To The Stage”, “Phoenix Rising”, or something along the lines of starting over.
    That seems to be the trend right now for a lot of the 90s artists that are putting out new projects lately. :)

    This is great for them. It would be ignorant of them to not put out new material around the time their movie comes out. With all the excitement surrounding the movie, this new project will do great.

    I hate when comments saying an artist “should quit and hang it up” are made.It’s Just like telling a singer to stop breathing. When music is someone’s passion, they can’t just give it up no matter how much an song or album may fail. #TeamTLC

    I think its a good idea for them and also all of the REAL GIRL GROUPS to get back together and bring the true definition of what a girl group should be and the definition of good music that alot of these groups dont have and i wish TLC da best of luck with the new record ill buy it when it drops and cant wait to see the movie :-) now all we have to do is wait for Destiny’s Child to get back together and ill be happy :-)

    Its b******* because everyone know they just wanna pay the rent. They are so far out of touch with the music scene its sad. No one is checking for a TLC album in 2013 even if Left Eye was alive. Its just like that long awaited Lauryn Hill album. Nobody cares anymore

    @Jer boy PLEASE. They just don’t have the hype and publicity that they once had in the early 2000’s and the 90’s. And of course when you been out the public eye for a while and a bunch of new artists take over the scene, it’s like that. They are still worldwide music icons stfu, hater.

    RIP Lisa.

    PLEASE don’t work with nicki minaj. I read someone say that.

    I have noticed left eye didnt record the songs on 3d as part of a tlc song. Most of the raps on 3D album was from left eyes unreleased solo material.
