Lady Gaga Will Produce a New TLC Song
You’ve seen today’s Lady Gaga news. And you’ve seen today’s TLC news. But did you know that today would also bring Lady Gaga/TLC news? When you opened your eyes this morning, reaching for that alarm clock and wondering how many cups of coffee it would take until you felt normal again, did you in your wildest dreams stop to think, I wonder if there will be some sort of Lady Gaga/TLC news today. You bet your ass you didn’t. But there is.
In a news conference today, T-Boz and Chilli announced they’ll be releasing a greatest hits album on Oct. 15. Not only will the album feature remastered versions of classics like “Waterfalls,” “Unpretty” and “No Scrubs,” it will also feature new music written by Lady Gaga and Ne-Yo. Both Drake and J-Cole will be featured in the new material.
Lady Gaga seems like an odd choice, no? I mean, she was 8 years old when “CrazySexyCool” came out. But, whatever, I’m not going to let anything get in the way of my excitement over new TLC material. And I’ll give Gaga the benefit of the doubt on this one.
As for those rumors that TLC would be going on tour with a hologram of Left Eye, the group’s third member who died in a car crash in 2002? Chilli says it’s probably not happening.
“I don’t even know how that got out. It’s definitely something we thought about, like years ago. But I think it’s very creepy. We’re still in the creative process in figuring out how we’re going to involve Lisa [Left Eye] and stuff like that.”
TLC will be performing for the first time in years this weekend at the Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Penn. There, Lil Mama (who plays Left Eye in the VH1 biopic) will be filling in.
