The ballers surely showed up and helped the group members T-Boz, Tionne Watkins and Rozanda â€œChilliâ€ Thomas realize theirÂ dream of making a no-strings attached album that would allow them to be creative sans the control from a big label.
T-Boz shared her excitement on Twitter saying:Â “I get off the plane 2 find out not only did we reach our goal but we’re the fastest MOST FUNDED POP PROJECT IN #KICKSTARTER HISTORY! Thx,” she wrote.
Chilli chimed in too.
“We are officially the most successful pop project of all time on @kickstarter in 72hrs!!! #TLCFANS #thelove,” she tweeted.
Among the donors who helped TLC make crowdfunding history areÂ Katy Perry, who donated $5,000, New Kids ON the Block donated $10,000,Â Soulja Boy, andÂ Bette Midler.Â
TLC will hit the road for The Main Event tour with New Kids On the Block and Nelly. T-Boz and Chilli said they have begun the writing phase and production of their fifth album and expect to release it in May when their tour starts.
The money will go towards the making ofÂ TLCâ€™s first album since 2002â€™s 3D.
We can’t help but wonder, with group member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez out of the picture, will the group have as much success selling the album?
POLL: Will you buy the TLC LP?
