The surviving members of the 90s hip hop group confirm they are planning to create their first album ten years after the passing of third member Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes.
At the recently concluded Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards, Tionne Watkins a.k.a T-Boz and Rozonda Thomas a.k.a Chilli confirmed that they were busy working on a new TLC full-length album. It would mark their first offering since 2002's "3D" and the untimely passing of third band member Lisa Lopes a.k.a Left Eye.
The surviving members of the 90's group made the announcement during the awards night held in Liverpool as they accepted their Outstanding Contribution Honors. The duo also talked about going on tour for the new album and Lopes could be incorporated into the accompanying tour in the form of a hologram.
"We're going to still sound like TLC, evolving to whatever level we need to be at this time," explained T-Boz in an interview with BBC. "When that stops working, maybe we'll hang up the towel, but that still works. We have to get into the studio and start feeling how we feel. You have to find yourself first and then you find the path and then you have an album before you know it," added the singer.
TLC were one of the best-selling and highly significant hip hop/R'n'B acts of the 1990's. The group was responsible for such big hits like "Waterfalls", "Creep" and "No Scrubs". Their works eventually came to a halt after the untimely death of Lopes in a car accident in Honduras.
At present, T-Boz and Chilli are working on a biopic for VH1, taking on producer roles and casting actresses to play themselves.
