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!”

Left Eye Shout Out on Mariah Carey’s ‘A No No’ Remix with Stefflon Don

Mariah Carey recently dropped the glossy music video to her latest single “A No No“, lifted from her latest album, the critically acclaimed ‘Caution‘, and followed up the release with a brand new remix!

After months of a rumoured remix with hip-hop rappers Cardi B & Lil’ Kim (whose 1996 hit “Crush On You” is heavily sampled on the single), Mariah decided to roll with the super talented British rapper Stefflon Don!

Stefflon Don rhymes effortlessly over the classic beat in her British-Jamaican accent, even dropping a shout out to the legendary Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes!

“I ain’t with the “he say, she say” / get the strap out / Bloodclart dem a try / Burn down your house like Lisa “Left Eye” / Ain’t no nigga left, aye / It’s plain and simple, they addicted to me”, Stefflon Don raps on the track.

Producer Jermaine Dupri claims he sent Lil’ Kim the track after she reached out to him to be included on the remix. However, the final decision lay in the hands of Epic Records.

Let us know what you think of this Stefflon Don-laced version of this Mariah hit!

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.

Chilli continues to make moves overseas in the Caribbean, bringing her ‘CrazySexyCool‘ persona to a number of beautiful tropical locations!

Following her adventures in Barbados last week with hip-hop legend Lil’ Kim and R&B singer Mýa, filming for an upcoming VH1 show, “Girls Crew“, the ladies move onto the stunning island of Trinidad!

Getting ready for the annual Trinidad Carnival, Chilli’s glam squad caught the beauty freshly dressed in a traditional outfit just before heading out to party!

The superstar trio are also joined by MTV’s B. Simone and Vena E (Wild N Out), as well as model Char Defranseco and actress Tiffany Panhilason.

Fans in Trinidad couldn’t contain their excitement at having the stars in their homeland. One fan, Ani Anhai, revealed her mother had met and hugged Chilli over there!

Another fan, Jamila Aisha, was excited upon learning Chilli and the crew were filming the show in her hotel.
