Destiny's Child reunites (again) (sort of) -- VIDEO

michelle-williams-video.jpg

Destiny’s Child announced its breakup all the way back in 2005, but the group has made a pretty regular habit of periodically reuniting. Usually that happens when Beyoncé, Kelly, and Michelle are releasing yet another greatest hits compilation, but as we pointed out recently, the trio’s best-known lineup recently got together to record a track for Michelle Williams’ new gospel-oriented album Journey to Freedom. Michelle may not be the Child with the most successful solo career, but “Say Yes,” with its dancehall drums and light dusting of squiggly EDM synths, is worthy of summer jam status.

Williams just dropped the video for “Say Yes.” She not only got her former bandmates to appear in it, but also got Beyoncé to rock her DC-era braids again. Solange, who contributed backup vocals, doesn’t appear, though she’s still getting a lot of traction from her last video role.

Michelle Williams debuts gospel track featuring Beyonce, Solange, and Kelly Rowland -- LISTEN

Journey

Get ready to lose your breath: It’s a Destiny’s Child reunion (plus Solange tagged along!).

For Michelle Williams’ upcoming gospel album, Journey to Freedom, she brought together her favorite independent women to give her an assist on lead single “Say My Name Yes,” based on the popular Nigerian hymn. Backed by Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Solange, the upbeat track takes the inspirational lyrics and throws them over a reggae beat. Williams has performed the track for the past several months by herself, but this is the first time fans have heard it with the other voices.

In addition to the album, Williams will next be seen in the upcoming Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour, where she’ll play the role of Mary Magdalene.

This is the only Beyoncé- and Solange-related news of the last couple of weeks, so this song should be the only thing you are possibly thinking about regarding the Knowles family. Everything’s great — just two sisters who love each other hanging out with Michelle Williams + Kelly Rowland. Listen to “Say Yes” below: READ FULL STORY

Kelly Rowland reunites with Beyonce, Michelle Williams on 'You've Changed': Hear it here

Kelly Rowland is on a roll, and now she’s brought Beyoncé and Michelle Williams along for one more reunion ride.

In anticipation of her upcoming new album Talk a Good Game, Rowland has debuted the song “You’ve Changed,” which features her Destiny’s Child compadres.

This comes after the release of another cut of hers that also features Beyoncé, though only in spirit: The confessional “Dirty Laundry,” which asked the question, “Post ‘Survivor,’ she on fire, who wanna hear my bulls—?” If you do, give “You’ve Changed” a listen below:

Kelly Rowland releases intense new track 'Dirty Laundry', talks abusive boyfriend, Beyonce struggles: Hear it here

While the rumor mill swirls about Beyoncé’s possible bun in the Bey-oven, her former Destiny’s Child stablemate is making her own internet waves with a confessional new song.

Kelly Rowland’s new album Talk a Good Game comes out next month, and so far we’ve already heard the smooth Lil Wayne-assisted “Ice” and the barely SFW “Kisses Down Low,” but this morning Rowland unleashed an entirely different kind of conversation starter in the song “Dirty Laundry.”

The song finds Rowland airing out her feelings about an abusive ex-boyfriend and having to watch as Beyoncé’s career skyrocketed while her own failed to reach those kinds of heights. Listen below: READ FULL STORY

Kelly Rowland confirms new album will feature track with Beyonce and Michelle Williams

Kelly Rowland is teaming up with her former Destiny’s Child bandmates for a track on her upcoming album, Talk A Good Game, Universal’s Republic Records has confirmed.

“It’s not a Destiny’s Child track, it’s me featuring Beyoncé and Michelle,” Rowland told Billboard of the as-yet-unnamed song. Describing the track’s sound, Roland simply said, “Soul.”

The collaboration will be the former group’s first since January, when the Pharrell Williams-produced “Nuclear” ramped up buzz for Destiny’s Child’s Love Songs compilation and the ladies’ on-stage reunion during Beyoncé’s performance at Super Bowl XLVII.

Game is due June 4 and will also feature a duet with Williams, an appearance from Wiz Khalifa, and production from Boy Wonder, T-Minus, and The-Dream, among others. Rowland told Billboard that she recorded “70-something songs” for the album but had to cut the final tally to 12.

The set’s catchy first single, “Kisses Down Low,” has already been causing a stir at radio because of its racy sex innuendo. Check it out below.

Beyonce, Destiny's Child get big post-Super Bowl bumps on iTunes

Ray Lewis and Oreo weren’t the only winners to come out of Super Bowl XLVII.

After delivering a nearly universally beloved performance at the halftime show last night, Beyoncé and her fellow X-Men Destiny’s Child colleagues scored big boosts on the charts today.

At the time of this post, a bevy of Bey albums and singles, as well as a handful of Destiny’s Child releases, have rocketed up to the list of iTunes’ top downloads.

Destiny's Child's 'Nuclear': Hear the group's first single in ten years here!

In the music business, as in Hollywood, January is generally not known for blockbuster entertainment moments.

So far in 2013, though we’re expecting the arrival of new music by Justin Timberlake, diving into a brand new David Bowie song, and cranking up the beyond-excellent album by A$AP Rocky. So far, 2013’s musical cup runneth over.

But the biggest news so far belongs (as it so often does) to Beyoncé, who not only has a new solo album on tap and a Super Bowl halftime headlining gig to prep, but also promised the first new Destiny’s Child single in eons.

That song, produced by Pharrell, was co-written by Michelle Williams, is called “Nuclear,” though that explosive adjective may not be quite what you have in mind when you listen to this low-key R&B jam; listen below: READ FULL STORY

Destiny's Child to perform at the Super Bowl -- REPORT

Well, that was fast: Just one day after the indigestibly powerful Beyoncé announced that new music from Destiny’s Child was on its way, it’s been reported that the group will be performing at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show as well.

According to Us Weekly, multiple sources have confirmed that the trio — Bey, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams — will be reuniting onstage for the first time since 2006. (EW has reached out to the group’s reps for confirmation but have yet to hear back.)

The Feb. 3 game will come just days after Destiny’s Child releases Love Songs, a compilation that’ll contain a new song called “Nuclear.” Likewise, the R&B group will reportedly perform a medley of hits when they take the stage, saving their latest single for the end.

Of course, Beyoncé will still be the star of the night. Sources tell Us Weekly that Beyoncé will begin the show on her own, bring in Rowland and Williams at halftime’s halftime, and then return for another solo run that’ll include a brand new cut from her upcoming album.

Beyonce covers GQ, announces new Destiny's Child release

beyonce-GQ

How powerful is Beyoncé?

Enough so to cover GQ, release new Destiny’s Child material, and perform at a Presidential Inauguration all in the same month.

Or, if she may so so herself: “I now know that, yes, I am powerful,” she tells GQ. “I’m more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand.”

The R&B superstar made a sneak announcement today, confirming that she and her old band are set to drop their first release since 2004’s Destiny Fulfilled. Titled Love Songs, the new Destiny’s Child effort will hit streets January 29th and is already available for preorder on Amazon. It’ll contain a new single from group, called “Nuclear.”

This comes after rampant speculation as to when Bey will be releasing a solo album of her own, given that her itinerary this year includes the Super Bowl halftime show and a high-profile HBO documentary.

Does this new announcement mean that her fellow Children of Destiny Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams will be join her onstage at the Super Bowl? That remains to be seen.

In the meantime, gaze upon Bey’s “Blue Ivy came from this” body on the cover GQ and read her interview with the magazine.
