The group will reportedly perform its new song ‘Nuclear,’ plus some of its greatest hits!
When we first heard that Destiny’s Child is reuniting for a “new” album — Love Songs only actually contains one new song, titled “Nuclear” — we speculated that Kelly Rowland and non-Dawson’s Creek Michelle Williams might be joining Beyoncé on stage Feb. 3 for her Super Bowl XLVII halftime show performance. Now, a report from Us Weekly claims the ladies will in fact come together on the big stage to perform several of their greatest hits!
Beyoncé will open the halftime show by her self, the source says, before being joined by Kelly, 31, and Michelle, 32, for a medley of Destiny’s Child chart toppers. Following those songs, the ladies will reportedly perform their brand-new song “Nuclear.”
Then, perhaps symbolic of their history as a group, Kelly and Michelle will leave the stage and allow Beyoncé to claim the spotlight for herself. At that time, the source says, Beyoncé will perform a new song from her as-yet-untitled fifth album.
Destiny’s Child Reuniting After Eight Years Apart
It’s hard to believe it’s been eight years since Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle have put out new music as a group — and yet, it really has been that long.
Beyoncé used her official website to announced the news Jan. 10, writing, “I am so proud to announced the first original Destiny’s Child music in eight years.”
Kelly “Kelendria” Rowland also shared a few words, via Twitter: “Hi guys! I’m happy to announce new music from Destiny’s Child in eight years!”
Michelle also (sort of) chimed in with her thoughts, tweeting a link to her Facebook page, where a generic description of the Love Songs album could be found.
(Not for nothing, but you’d think the three of them would have more to say about their reunion, or at least would seem more excited about the album. Fans are freaking out!)
