Instead of looking to a record label for financial backing of their final album, TLC is reaching out to their fans. T-Boz and Chilli have started a Kickstarter campaign to welcome donations from their fans to fund their next project.
On their Kickstarter page, the duo stated they want to have creative control over this album and that it’s important that their fans are hands on for this final LP.
“While major labels offer artists multimillion dollar recording and marketing budgets, they don’t often give artists complete control of their own music,” they wrote on their Kickstarter page. It is ESSENTIAL that we create our final album completely on our own terms, without any restrictions, with YOU.”
Their goal is to raise $150,000 to pay for their recording sessions with their producers and engineer, booking producers, mixing sessions and more. Donations start at $5, but the bigger the donation the bigger the perk for the fan.
“We will send ALL BACKERS who pledge $5 or MORE a list of tracks we want to remix,” T-Boz and Chilli wrote. YOU will vote on your favorite, and the track with the most votes will be included on the album!!”
The two are looking to enlist their key members from their original hit making team for the album, including singer/songwriter turned reality star Kandi Burruss.
