Chilli Hints At New TLC Music For Broadway Musical

Tlc-the-musical-tlcarmy

TLC: The Musical could very soon become a reality in the near future.

Following the release of their final, self-titled album in the summer of 2017, fans were left wondering if TLC would ever release any new music again!

Well, fear not — there will be new music in the works, to be used in the TLC musical, according to Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas!

Speaking at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas on a promotional campaign for the upcoming TLC summer tour with Nelly, Chilli touched on what TLC have in store besides the tour.

“I’m personally working on some TV stuff [‘Girls Crew‘, ‘Fix My Plate‘], and us, TLC, collectively we are”, Chilli says, “and, we are working on the TLC musical and TLC on Broadway. So, we’re going to create new music for those projects as well.”

Chilli also clarifies that the musical will touch on some of the many untold stories that weren’t covered in the VH1 biopic, ‘CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story‘ in 2013.

“We didn’t tell everything. I mean, we have so many stories to tell that we didn’t tell in our biopic on VH1. But it’s a lot of stuff, a lot of good stuff”, Chilli says.

“It’s going to be very emotional, but like a good ride. I’m very excited about it. I almost can’t believe it!”

TLC previously joined forces with Nelly in 2015 as part of New Kids On The Block’s The Main Event tour. This tour will be something different.

“We had the pleasure of working together before on a separate tour, but it wasn’t ours”, Nelly says. “So, we decided that we had so much fun on that one that we decided we would come together and do our own thing. So we’re looking forward to reaching out to everybody this summer and killing it”.

“We have so many surprises”, Chilli gushes. “It’s going to be a very different tour, and I think you guys are going to be very excited.”

“We’re gonna come together for something special that we feel like nobody else is doing on tour and give you a whole ‘nother vibe”, Nelly continues.
