TLC Fans Upset Over Kickstarter Album
Back in January, TLC took to Kickstarter to ask their fans to help fund their final album. Their initial goal was $150,000 but after receiving more than DOUBLE that amount including receiving high profile donations from other celebrities like Katy Perry, its November and there's still no album, and fans are getting agitated.
According to Vibe, fans took to Twitter to ask T-Boz and Chili about what happened with the album and if they could get their money back since its been 10 months and NO music has materialized. After raising more than $430,000, it looks like TLC may have taken the money and ran even though their Kickstarter page said that the album has been pushed back until next year. In a post to their page dated in September, here's what they had to say:
Hey TLC fans!
After seeing and greeting so many of you on our tour this summer, we took a short break and now we are in the studio recording our new album with Ron Fair, coming out in 2016. The music is coming out great and it's only with your support of TLC on Kickstarter that this is possible. We thank you and promise that we will continue rolling out all the Kickstarter prizes except the album by mid-October. We are moving the album back to 2016, so that we will have more time to finish the record the TLC way. Thanks as always for your love and support and we can't wait to deliver a new record and tour next year. - TLC KickStarter Post
But fans ain't trying to hear that, I hope they figure this out and FAST.
