TLC plan first album since Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes' death
Surviving members of one of the most influential R&B bands of the nineties TLC are planning a new album a decade after the death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.
Singer Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins revealed at the Mobo Awards in Liverpool this weekend that they are planning to start work on new material.
The Grammy Award-winning musical trio got together in 1990 and sold 23 million copies of their second studio album CrazySexyCool. Number 1 singles include "No Scrubs", "Waterfalls" and "Creep".
Chilli and T-Boz completed TLC’s third album, 3D, together following Lopes’ death in a Honduras car crash in 2002.
The pair are about to produce a film biopic about TLC, casting actresses to play themselves.
There is speculation that pair might use a hologram of Lopes during live performances.
“It will be hard on us but I certainly think our fans would love to see [the hologram],’ Chilli told Metro. “We would definitely be the first group to ever do it.”
In April American rapper Tupac Shakur, who was shot in 1996, was resurrected in hologram form at a Californian music festival to perform with Snoop Dog and Doctor Dre.
“We're going to still sound like TLC, evolving to whatever level we need to be at this time," T-Boz told the BBC. "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.”
