TLC is back! They have just released their new song “Meant To Be” which was written by Neyo. This is the first new song from TLC since 2005’s “I Bet”. The song is the only new song featured on their retrospective album 20 which is out in stores on Oct. 15th. The album coincides with the release of their Vh-1 biopic: Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story which premieres Oct. 21st. Meant To Be sounds like classic TLC. The song is a heartfelt track. It sounds as if TLC is singing all of their background vocals, and additional background vocals with Neyo. We like the track and cannot wait to hear their new full-length studio album. We are not sure if there will be a visual for the song, but at least we have new material to listen to. TLC has been making headlines all this year. First, they were honored by MTV Japan, Vh-1 mixtape festival, Drake brought them out during is OVO Fest, collaborating with J. Cole on a hit single, and now the movie. Check out the song Meant To Be down below and let us know what you think:
It seems like it has been forever since TLC has released something in the US, and it has. The last release from TLC was 2005’s Now and Forever: The Hits. Now, 8 years later, comes TLC anniversary album 20, and here is the tracklist for the album:
Now, I am sure that TLC fans are upset at this list due to the fact that there is only one new song on the tracklist. That song is “Meant to Be” which was written by Neyo. However, TLC fans, DO NOT fret. TLC has just confirmed that they are in the studio working on a full-length studio album due out in 2014. Some of the collaborators for that album have been Lady Gaga, Drake, Neyo, Dallas Austin, and J. Cole just announced that he is also contributing to their new studio album. We are excited about the J. Cole collaboration. TLC’s first time collaborating with J. Cole is on his hit song “Crooked Smile” which is currently sitting at #36 on the Hot 100 (Billboard). This is the first Top 40 hit for TLC since 2002’s “Girl Talk”. We believe that a TLC comeback is in full effect.
Don’t forget to catch the TLC biopic on Vh-1 premiering October 21st!
R&B supergroup TLC have been in Japan for the past week. While in Japan, they were honored with a legend award at the 2013 MTV VMAs Japan.
