TLC Makes History As Kickstarter’s Fastest Funded Pop Project

TLC made history and secured more than $200,000 in just four days for their Kickstarter campaign to produce their upcoming album, making it the fastest funded pop project on the site.

The ballers surely showed up and helped the group members T-Boz, Tionne Watkins and Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas realize their 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: “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.

TLC Wants Fans to Fund Final Album + Tour Announcement

Among the donors who helped TLC make crowdfunding history are Katy Perry, who donated $5,000, New Kids ON the Block donated $10,000, Soulja Boy, and Bette Midler. 

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 of TLC’s first album since 2002’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?
