The BBC has gotten the word out that the surviving members of 90’s R&B/Hip Hop girl group TLC are currently working on their first album of new music in a decade.  The announcement of this new initiative was made in Liverpool England at the Mobo Awards.  If this album does indeed come together as planned, it will serve as a major piece of several things that are stringing together for the group. Based on everything we know that is surrounding the group, this new material is going to also be surrounded by the development of a VH1 bio pic, and the airing of a TLC (The network) based reality show centered around TLC group member, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins’ journey through recovering from bankruptcy and complications related to having a brain tumor.

The groups last album, 2002’s 3D, was released 6 months after the untimly death of TLC rapper Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who died in a car crash in Honduras. This naturally shook the group to its core, leaving fans, and the group’s surviving members wondering if they’d make music together under the TLC name again.  Although Left Eye’s loss may serve as an endurable scar on the group’s history image and sound in the eyes of fans, for Chilli and T-Boz, time has appeared to have healed this very deep wound.

“We’re going to still sound like TLC, evolving to whatever level we need to be at this time,” said T-Boz, confirming the group will begin work on new material soon. When asked how TLC would fit into the current landscape of pop, T-Boz said, “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.”

“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,” she added. “You have to find yourself first and then you find the path and then you have an album before you know it.”

Earlier reports have indicated that T-Boz’s TLC reality show, “Totally T-Boz” will begin airing in 2013.  We’ll keep you posted on all of TLC’s developing endeavors.  Best of luck ladies!
