I don't need the rest.
'It's Sunny' is one of the worst things they've ever released. I don't hate it it... but it's so average.
I hate that it was an UK (radio) single and that it'll probably the last single they will ever release.

So it’s agreed that It’s Sunny is the most embarrassing thing they’ve ever recorded, right?

Of course. Like why would they even?

"It's Sunny" is not that bad, the lyrics are just so corny. It should have been the biopic soundtrack and "Meant to Be" should have been here instead. :lol: :lol: :lol:

It’s Sunny is actually a good song. The live version is better than the recording. They were going for a Pharrell “Happy” type song.

The biggest issue I have is the lack of promotion for the album. The week of they were nowhere to be found on tv, radio and etc. It’s as if they threw in towel expecting “defeat,” and wanted things to play out quietly.

T-Boz promoted her book “A Sick Life” more than TLC’s album. If you are going to go the indie route, you have to work even harder in terms of promotion, but with a much smaller budget. There are so many creative ways they could have leveraged social media to help offset that. I wish they would have went the major label route.

I'm just so happy they toured! I wonder if they will get signed by Def Jam or whatever label. For sure, fans will never fund them ever again after the messy rollout of this album!

@Get Back, I am glad they toured and are continuing to do so on a regular basis. They have been touring heavily since the summer of 2013, which preceded the fall premiere of their VH1 biopic. They have done shows (arena and more intimate settings) in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the UK, Paris, and a few dates in South Africa are coming.

Regarding the major label contract, they had offers but didn’t accept because they did not like the terms of the 360 contracts. A smart move financially speaking though, because most r/b artists on major labels are selling similar amounts to what TLC’s indie kickstarter album.

That’s great! They put on a good show! They are the biggest U.S. girl group of the 90’s. According to the RIAA, they are still the best selling r/b girl group of all time.

Maybe if they signed with Def Jam, their certifications will be updated. Who knows?! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

That is desperately needed, No Scrubs and Waterfalls streaming numbers and digital sales are massive I’m sure.
