Destiny’s Child Is Releasing a New Compilation Called ‘Love Songs’–With A Brand New Song
LITERALLY STOP YOUR ENTIRE LIFE AND LOSE YOUR BREATH.
Destiny has already been fulfilled, and now, it’s making a comeback.
As Beysus prepares to intercept wigs during her 2013 Super Bowl halftime spectacle, the group that launched her career–as well as that of Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams (and let us never forget, LeToya Luckett, Latavia Roberson and Farrah Franklin)–is about to put out a brand new compilation on January 29.
The album, called Destiny’s Child – Love Songs, is a collection of ‘romantic gems’ from the legendary R&B trio’s back catalog–including their first new original song since 2004: “Nuclear.” (!!!)
From the press release:
Music World Entertainment/Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings will release Destiny’s Child – Love Songs, a new career-spanning collection of the most sensual and romantic recordings from the best-selling vocal group, on Tuesday, January 29, 2013.
Comprised mainly of romantic gems recorded between 1997 and 2004, Love Songs features “Nuclear,” the first new Destiny’s Child recording since 2004. Produced by Pharrell Williams (who cowrote the track with DC’s Michelle Williams, James Fauntleroy and Lonny Bereal), “Nuclear” features vocal production by Beyoncé and Lonny Bereal.
The tracklisting is thoroughly bizarre-yet-amazing, including a 2002 Timbaland remix of “Say My Name” and “Heaven,” a solo cut from Kelly Rowland’s Simply Deep (?!). But with a new Pharrell-produced, James Fauntleroy co-penned track on the way, who could possibly complain?
Let us all join hands and form a circle to pray that this is only the beginning of new music from DC3 in 2013–and that Michelle gets more than a single line. Now, here’s the question: Will the trio be reuniting…live? Say, at an upcoming national sporting event?
