There can be miracles when you believe.
Earlier today, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news now heard ’round the world–Destiny’s Child frontwoman Michelle Williams is about to star in her very own reality TV show. Bet you didn’t expect that.
Sorry. Wait. I can’t do this without some assistance. Michelle? You there?
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.
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.
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.” (!!!)
