A few days ago fans prematurely speculated that a new Destiny’s Child project could be on the horizon after the group updated the headers on their social media platforms for the first time in years.
Fans who were down bad for a new Beyoncé or Destiny Child album further assumed that a new track from Beyoncé, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland may have been what Bey was referring to when she said “Yes, the music is coming” during her Harpers Bazaar cover story.
In unfortunate turn of events; Beyoncé’s father, who is still the group’s official manager says there’s nothing at all in the works at the moment from the iconic trio. Mathew Knowels told TMZ that the recent header updates to DC’s Twitter and Facebook accounts were just random, routine updates done by the label, and he wasn’t aware of it.
He was however impressed with the fan buzz to a likely Destiny’s Child reunion and didn’t rule against it happening in the future.
Destiny’s Child began their mainstream exploits in 1998 – then comprising of Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson, and LeToya Luckett.
In early 2000, after a falling out both Roberson and Luckett were replaced with Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin. Franklin quit after five months, leaving the group as a trio.
Following the release of their third album Survivor in 2001, the trio went on a two-year hiatus before subsequently reuniting in 2004 for their fifth and final album Destiny Fulfilled.
Kelly Rowland released her last album “Talk A Good Game” in 2013, while Michelle Williams’ last album “Journey To Freedom” was released in 2014. The album featured the aingle “Say Yes” which saw Michelle reunite with Beyoncé and Kelly.
Beyoncé remians the most active of the three. In 2018, she released Everything Is Love, a collaborative album with her husband, Jay-Z and in 2020 she released the musical film and visual album Black Is King to widespread acclaim.
She also recently revealed that she’s been in the studio for a year and a half working hard to bring her fans some new music.
“I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half. Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies. Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio. After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!”
