The second solo album from former TLC member Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes is set to be released in January, more than six years after her death in a car accident.
The album ‘Eye-Legacy’ features unreleased vocals from Lopes, as well as guest appearances by Missy Elliott and the late rapper Tupac Shakur. Elliot’s contribution is to the first single ‘Let’s Just Do It’ while Shakur’s vocals appear on ‘Legendary’.
A percentage of the sales will be donated to the Lisa Lopes Foundation and her orphanage in Honduras, according to UrbanNetwork.
Lopes died in an accident in 2002, when her SUV left the road as she swerved to avoid another car while driving in Honduras.
In 2007, VH1’s screened ‘The Last Days Of Left Eye’, which documented the singer as she holidayed in the Honduras countryside. The footage includes the shot that was being filmed the moment the accident happened.
