It looks like TLC may have already been dropped from Epic Records — a mere four months after signing a new deal with the label.
Although not officially confirmed yet, a TLC fansite pointed out on Twitter that the group’s name has been removed from Epic’s roster, while the label’s logo no longer appears on TLC’s own website.
The duo only signed a fresh deal with Epic back in July to release their greatest hits compilation, 20, and new single, “Meant To Be.” In October, TLC confirmed to MTV that they were working on a new studio album with L.A. Reid, due for release in early 2014, and a couple of days after that, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story premiered on VH1 to record ratings.
It sounds like things couldn’t have possibly been going any better for TLC. After so much success, why would L.A. Reid (the same man who brought Ciara over to Epic Records at the lowest point in her career) pull the plug on a legendary act like TLC so suddenly?
Are we seeing a possible connection here?
Of course, we’re just speculating. We don’t know for sure if TLC were even dropped yet, and the whole Pebbles thing is just a theory we came up with because we couldn’t think of any other viable reason for Epic to ditch the girl group at this point in time (Please don’t sue us, Pebbles!).
What do you guys think of the whole situation so far? It’s fishy, right?
