Five-time Grammy Award winning group TLC have released a brand new single, ‘Haters’, which is their first new music since their #1 collaboration with J. Cole in 2014. Formed in 1991, TLC captured the world’s attention with their sassy attitude, sophisticated R&B feel, and socially conscious lyrical style. Having sold 65 million albums worldwide, TLC have cemented themselves as the world’s most successful female group of all time.
TLC will release their final album in 2017, which will be their first new album in over a decade. The ladies are excited to release the album, saying:
“This album, our final album, is dedicated to all of you that have stuck with us, always challenging us to do our best. And of course, it's for the new fans too! We just want to put out great music that touches everyone. That's it."
TLC will be making their return to Australia and New Zealand in just a couple of weeks for the unmissable RNB Fridays Live which features 10 of the biggest names in RNB. There’s no denying the hype around RNB Fridays Live; the Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide shows are completely sold out and there are very limited tickets remaining in Perth. TLC will also play headline shows in Australia and New Zealand, with one Sydney show already sold out.
In 1994 TLC released CrazySexyCool which became an R&B classic and the only album by a female singing group to achieve diamond status for selling over 14 million copies in America. CrazySexyCool was nominated for 6 Grammys (winning Best R&B Album), and features iconic songs ‘Waterfalls’ and ‘Creep’.
The follow up to CrazySexyCool, Fanmail, was nominated for 8 Grammy Awards, taking home Album Of The Year and Best R&B Album, as well as winning Record Of The Year for ‘No Scrubs’ and Best Video for ‘Unpretty’.
