The duo announced that they’ve received a whopping $430,000 in donations from fans and even entertainers like Katy Perry, who contributed $5,000, while their tour mates New Kids on the Block forked over $20,000.
“Thank you to everyone who has donated to our final album!! The amount doesn’t matter but the fact that you donated means the world to us,” the duo wrote on their campaign page.
Details are sparse about album plans, but TLC has enlisted veteran producer/label executive Ron Fair to be the set’s executive producer as well as longtime collaborator Dallas Austin, who co-wrote their biggest hits including “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg.”
