TLC launched their Kickstarter campaign 2 years ago on January 19, 2015. It took them only 3 days to reach their target of $150,000 and make Kickstarter history by being the fastest funded pop album on the site!

Various stars contributed to TLC’s campaign, from Katy Perry (who pledged $5,000) and their Main Event Tour friends New Kids On The Block (pledging a whopping $10,000)! Celebrities like Mariah Carey and Bette Midler have also shown support!

TLC offered many exciting rewards for fans to pledge for as a thank you for supporting the album fundraiser.

Meet and greets, personalized voicemails, slumber parties, date at the movies, workout sessions, handwritten lyrics, platinum plaques,  studio session meets and many more rewards on top of signed copies of the new album!

TLC have been working hard to ensure it will be the finest body of work for all the fans who contributed to make this once in a lifetime chance to be part of the album happen!

The album is complete and being mixed! The finer details are being fine tuned in order to release the album in the best way possible, independently.

This is why Kickstarter was the best way to avoid going through record labels, have full control of the content and to let the fans contribute. Nobody wants that album more than us, so we’re proud to be a part of TLC history to make this 5th album happen!

There is no official release date as of yet, but you can expect it be with us this Summer in the 2nd quarter! A single will be dropping before that and an update via Kickstarter will be coming very soon, so stay tuned!
