Back in the day ... Destiny's Child, from left, Kelly Rowland, Beyonce and Michelle Williams, at the 28th Annual American Music Awards on Jan. 8, 2001.
Destiny's Child fans have a new reason to say their name: the group, comprised of Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, is reuniting for the first time since splitting up in 2005. "We are so proud to announce the first original Destiny's Child music in eight years!" the group announced on their Facebook page Thursday.
On Jan. 29, they'll release "Love Songs," a collection comprised "mainly of romantic gems recorded between 1997 and 2004," according to their website. On the album will also be a brand new track, "Nuclear," the first new recording since 2004. Give it a listen below.
Now that there's music on the horizon, the next logical question is WHEN WILL THEY PERFORM. There's no official word yet, but the rumor du jour is that Beyonce's Super Bowl performance might be a great opportunity. According to Rolling Stone, Beyonce will open the show, then she'll be joined by Williams and Rowland to singe a Destiny's Child medley and their new song, then Beyonce would close the show. Naturally, no one within the Destiny's Child camp has any comment on this. Stay tuned.
