Rap-Up TV: TLC Talks Lady Gaga Collaboration ‘Posh Life’

TLC revisited their 20-year legacy with the VH1 movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story and album 20. Now the best-selling female group is looking toward the future with the release of an all-new album.

One of the songs they recorded for the 2014 release is “Posh Life,” co-written by Dallas Austin and Lady Gaga. During an interview with Rap-Up TV, T-Boz and Chilli spoke about collaborating with the pop superstar.

“She actually wrote that with Dallas for her album,” said Chilli. “She told him that she wanted a song that was formatted just like TLC.”

But she decided not to use the song on ARTPOP. “She said it was too TLC. She didn’t want to offend us ’cause she was such a fan,” added T-Boz.

So under the guidance of Austin, TLC went to the studio and recorded the track before playing it for Gaga herself. “She was so excited,” said T-Boz. “She wants to be involved, but we’re trying to see if we can work that out, record company to record company.”

While in the studio, T-Boz also had a chance to hear some of Gaga’s ARTPOP. “Bananas!” she said. “She has this song with T.I. ['Jewels N' Drugs'] that’s so bomb. I was like floored, I loved it. She’s coming with some stuff, that’s all I’m sayin’.”

T-Boz and Chilli

TLC paid a visit to “The Wendy Williams Show” on Thursday while promoting their VH1 movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. Executive producers T-Boz and Chilli discussed everything from casting the biopic to their new album to their relationship with former manager Pebbles.

“We have no problems with Pebbles at all… We did not slander her,” said T-Boz, who revealed that she made them buy their name back for $1 million per letter. “This movie is from our perspective of what happened to us. It is very true. We did not lie.”

However, Pebbles is considering legal action. “I think she’ll probably wanna sue us,” said T-Boz.

TLC is working on a new album for 2014 with Dallas Austin, Rock City, and Lady Gaga (“Posh Life”).

Wendy raved about the movie, giving it “10s across the board.”

The ladies were also joined by the cast including Drew Sidora, Keke Palmer, and Lil Mama, who discussed their connection with the trio.
