It’s been almost a full week since Queen Michelle Williams reigned supreme at the Super Bowl halftime show (despite whatever Keyshia Cole had to say on Twitter), but I’m still stuck on the Destiny’s Child legend’s back catalog.
And by that, I mean her one non-Gospel album in 2008, Unexpected.
I could say that Beyonce slayed haters, dominated the stage and made all your faves mad during tonight’s Super Bowl Halftime Show.
I could say that there was a great degree of wig snatchery. I could say that she was fierce, ferocious and shined bright like a Beysus. But there are about a bazillion and one bloggers who are singing the praises of Bey out there right now, and I’m not trying to be yet another voice of approval. (For the record, it was amazing.)
I’m trying to tell a story. A story of truth. Tonight was not about Beyonce’s performance. It was about the return of Tenitra Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. And here’s how it all went down.
Long before President Beyoncé Giselle Knowles was busy practicing for her upcoming Super Bowl performance, wheeling Blue Ivy around in her Swarovski stroller at the Chateau d’Carter at a perfect 26 degrees Celsius, or simply lying to us all, she was fronting a small speed metal/indie-folk rock trio on the side alongside Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams called Destiny’s Child–otherwise known as one of the most successful girl groups of all time.
Today, Sony Legacy releases Love Songs, a compilation of DC3′s most sensual, baby makin’ deep cuts from their back catalog, just in time for getting it in (with yourself, let’s be real) for Valentine’s Day.
The collection includes songs like “Love,” “T-Shirt” and Temptation” (and, inexplicably, Kelly Rowland‘s “Heaven”), as well as their brand new Pharrell-produced track, “Nuclear,” which is thoroughly listenable, even if it’s not a proper “comeback” track.
To celebrate the release, MuuMuse is giving
away 3 copies of Love Songs.
The last time we heard Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams together on one song was back in 2005 with “Cater 2 U,” Destiny’s Child‘s last single off of their fourth album, Destiny Fulfilled.
(Technically their last single together was “Stand Up For Love” from their #1′s greatest hits compilation, but literally no one remembers that–nor should they, really.)
And now, as quickly as the announcement came earlier this week that the trio would be releasing their slightly bizarre compilation Love Songs on January 29, the one and only brand new song from the album, “Nuclear,” has surfaced.
According to US Weekly, Destiny’s Child is reuniting on stage at the Super Bowl.
Everyone knows that everything Us Weekly prints is true, especially because you should always believe everything that you read, so we’ll all just pretend it’s real because that’s a very exciting prospect. Besides, DC3′s got a new compilation coming out (with a new song!), so why shouldn’t it be real? It’s real, guys.
Now, we already know Beyoncé’s going to put on an amazing show. Obviously. She is Beyoncé. But what will happen when Destiny’s Child regroups onstage to perform a medley? Not any of the scenarios below, that’s for sure. But you never know…
