When Lisa ”Left Eye” Lopes died in a car crash in April, she left behind a number of unreleased tracks, recorded both for TLC and for her solo project. At the time, that music seemed trapped in limbo. But now that the two surviving members of TLC have announced a Nov. 12 release date for a final album by the trio that will include contributions by Lopes, Suge Knight has followed suit by announcing the release of Lopes’ solo album a few weeks earlier in October, MTV reports.
Lopes recorded an solo album last year for Arista, TLC’s label, called ”Supernova.” It was released throughout the world but, inexplicably, not in the United States. The frustrated Lopes turned to Knight and his revived Tha Row label, recording an album for him under the stage name N.I.N.A. (New Identity Not Applicable). It’s not clear how much of the album was finished before her death, or how different it will be from her TLC work.
