Music was the most-backed category on Kickstarter in 2014, and it looks like the category is off to a strong start in 2015.

TLC has announced a new and final album that will be entirely funded through Kickstarter. The group says they want to include their fans in the creation of the final album.

They are hoping to raise $150,000. So far they’ve raised over $15,500 in half a day.

This will be the first studio album by T-Boz and Chilli, the two remaining members of the group. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes passed away in 2002.

TLC told Time that releasing an album through Kickstarter continues their tradition of working with new formats and including fans in the creative process.

    This will be one of the first acts who have huge chart success in the pop/urban realm to use a format like this, and since the whole $150k is for the making of the album, this will be a very good test into what happens afterwards, how they attack it, where they get the marketing/promotional budget from, and what sort of commercial and showbiz success it will have, if they even go for it… It will be interesting for sure.

    Heck i used to shake my booty to these girls at much music dance parties when i was in high school, craziness.

    Ive changed my tune on kickstarter et all, some great things are being done through those sites…

All I can say is I LOVE em girls, I still have all their music from back in the days when I was still at school. I still remain a FAN and I can’t wait to hear what you are bringing to our ears. Above all mentioned I LOVE TLC!!
