One last time! After 25 years, T-Boz and Chilli, will release a final album as TLC.

The two remaining members of the hip-hop group created a Kickstarter campaign on Monday, Jan. 19, to fund the upcoming project. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas asked fans for $150,000 to back a fifth and final studio album.

“We want to do one last TLC album,” T-Boz, 44, said in a video to fans. “We want to do an album but we want to do it on our own.”

“We want to be able to be creative, think outside the box, and just be free to do what we really want to do,” Chilli, 43, chimed in. “We want to give you guys the quality of work that we have always given you.”

In less than a week, the musicians met and exceeded their goal, counting $173,390 in contributions as of Thursday, Jan. 22. The funds came from followers and supporters, including one very famous face.

“A BIG Special THANK YOU 2 @katyperry for her pledge to our #Kickstarter Campaign!” T-Boz tweeted on Tuesday, Jan. 20. “Your awesome!”

“Wow @katyperry…” added Chilli of the star, who reportedly gave $5,000 to the fundraiser. “Thanks so much for pledging!”
