Carson: please welcome the most successful female group of all time,
Carson: Aren’t i the luckiest guy in the room thank you for being here.
We have a lot to talk about, “3-did” is out tuesday, an interesting story
about the title you got tell us about what it means.
>> Well, we always let lisa come up with the title of the albums, she
does that girl and we left that alone that’s her homework that means three
dimensions of T.L.C.
Carson: Thank you for letting us premiere some of the tracks.
Carson: Let’s get into the top 10 then we’ll listen to about four brand
new tracks never heard before right here on the show and talk to the girls
about them we’ll get to jennifer lopez throwin’ around her rock making
it officially to the top tenth wednesday here is jennifer lopez “jenny
from the block”
Carson: First time ever officially on the show jennifer lopez “jenny
from the block” let’s get into the “3-d” out tuesday. You co-wrote “turntables”
I’ll play a little down. Tell me about this song.
>> This more than any the whole album is a tribute to lisa but this
really goes out to her because
[Inaudible] Oursation we are going through without our sister and when
i wrote the part i wrote on this song it has to deal with after something
bad good can happen so this is like one of our favorite songs.
>> It’s my most favorite.
Carson: Appreciating life.
>> Everybody can get somethin’ from it, you know, 9-11, you know if
you are going through a rough time in your life. After something bad it’s
always something good. You know god is good like that
Carson: You know it is funny if you listen back to your first album
that came out in ’93 and think of this comin’ out how do you think your
sound has evolved the most, the one thing that stands out the most.
>> Oh, my god.
Carson: The lyrics, the way it sounds?
>> I think a lot of things. You grow over the years anyway just as a
person there’s always new things to talk about. Things to cover and i think
our voices have matured and, uh, a lot of things. What else?
>> I mean, it’s funny ’cause the cool thing about T.L.C., We are like
three different artists in a group together and it works. We have chemistry
between the three of us and it’s magical even with you know e vflin’ over
all this time we still keep the main ingredient that everybody loves about
us, that T.L.C.Sound the scratchiness in her voice, the smooth sound in
mind and everybody love’s lilisa’s tone
Carson: It has the classic T.L.C. Sound and also a new sound the neptunes
got with you on a song we’ll play some of that down what is it about them
they are everywhere. What did they do for you.
>> Actually L.A. Reed came to us and said will you let the neptunes
work on your album ’cause usually we keep the hot guys out we said, for
real give us something different. Their music is good but is a signature
Carson: If you listen underneath a bit of it.
>> That’s what they wanted and they came to the table and gave us something
they said they wanted you to listen and go, wow the neptunes did that?
Carson: A win-win situation to both of you. We’ll check out more tracks
after the next video at 9 avril lavigne “sk8er boi” on spankin’ new trl
Carson: What a great week spankin’ new trl continues. O-town, tlc our
prime focus today we’ll bring out the boys in a bit and show you a premiere
of T.L.C.’S video and play you someraracks off 3-d out next tuesday gigi,

person, you know, we can relate to this one who were hurt in relationships
and damaged. We try to go on to the next relationship and kind of have
baggage and pain saying i really, really like you and i really, really
care but don’t trip out because i trip out because I’m still damaged. I
