Well, they ain’t too hard to beg ya’ll! In only three days after starting a Kickstarter campaign to record and release their fifth and final studio album, (see here) TLC has exceeded their goal. Initially T-Boz and Chilli asked fans for $150,000 for the untitled new album, and instead th group has surpassed its goal by over $20,000… with some help from none other than Katy Perry.
The Kickstarter campaign for the new album reached $172,939 so far, exceeding the initial goal Chili and T-Boz set. TLC is still accepting fan donation for additional production and album costs.
“The initial goal of $150,000 will go towards a writing session in the studio with a producer and engineer,” the group wrote in its Kickstarter post. “The money beyond that will go to booking music producers, writing sessions, mixing sessions, recording sessions, and SO much more. We want to work with the best in the business, so the more we raise means access to the best.”
TLC reached its Kickstarter goal with the help of a major current pop player: Katy Perry.
The Kickstarter is set to run through Feb. 19th. Cjeck out the tweets below from TLC thanking fans and Katy Perry.
