TLC, comprising of T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli, are back in the studios, working on brand new material for their upcoming album. Presently recording in Los Angeles and Atlanta, the trio who got everybody singing ‘No Scrubs’, have recruited long-time collaborator Dallas Austin as well as Babyface, Diane Warren, Raphael Saadiq and Eddie Hustle.
While the group’s representatives at Arista Records couldn’t provide a firm release date for the project, the TLC disc is slated to be released before the year 2002 is up.
When TLC first burst onto the music scene in 1992, they sold more than 4 million copies of their first effort ‘Oooooooh… On The TLC Tip’. Their sophomore release ‘CrazySexyCool’ in 1994 sold more than 11 million discs. Their last release was 1999’s ‘Fanmail’ and that sold close to 7 million copies.In earlier news, former Living Colour lead singer Corey Glover and his writing partner Michael Cirincione filed a copyright-infringement lawsuit on the 1st of February against TLC. Corey and Michael, having submitted a song, ‘Make Your Mind Up’ to TLC for consideration a year prior to the release of ‘Unpretty’, feel that the trio used bits of the pair’s song for their massive hit single and for failing to give them credit and recognition, hence the lawsuit.
Both Corey and Michael are seeking compensatory damages from the sale of ‘Unpretty’, statutory damages and legal fees.
