The second solo album by the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who died in a 2002 car accident, will finally see the light of day. The long-awaited 12-track album, Eye-Legacy, will hit stores November 11, according to XXLmag.com. It features previously unreleased vocals from the TLC rapper and collaborations with Chamillionaire, Lil Mama, Bobby Valentino and Missy Elliott, who appears on the first single, “Let’s Just Do It.”
The LP is being released through Mass Appeal Entertainment, in conjunction with the Lopes family. It will also feature songs from Lopes’ 2001 solo debut, “Supernova,” which was never released in the U.S. UrbanNetwork.com reports that a duet with late rapper Tupac Shakur called “Legendary” will also appear on the disc.
“We hope people understand the message in Lisa’s music and appreciate her as not just a member of TLC, but as a solo artist as well,” the Lopes family said in a statement. “This album is Left Eye’s musical gift to her fans and adds to the beauty of her legacy.”
A percentage of the proceeds from the album sales will go to the Lisa Lopes Foundation and her orphanage in Honduras, according to UrbanNetwork. In April 2002, Lopes was vacationing in the Central American country when the SUV she was driving flipped over. Lopes was the only fatality among the eight passengers in the vehicle. She was 30.
In May 2007, VH1 premiered “Last Days of Left Eye,” a documentary culled together from video footage Lopes took during her trip.
