Destiny's Child, 'Nuclear': Listen To The Trio's Sleepy, Pharrell Williams-Produced Track (AUDIO)

Posted: Updated:

Quite a bit of Destiny's Child news this week. First Beyonce announced that trio had reunited for a new song and compilation album. Then we learned Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams would join Bey at the Super Bowl halftime show. And now, just in time for the weekend, the single is here. "Nuclear," the only original song off the trio's upcoming album "Love Songs," hit the web Friday.

The Pharrell Williams-produced breakbeat track sounds like the '90s, but in a slower, more ... background-y way. Those pining for something a bit more "Say My Name" or "Jumpin' Jumpin'" are sure to be disappointed. That said, if you're looking for Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams to morph into a single, blanket-like voice, you're in luck. Give it a listen above and let us know what you think in the comments.

It's Sony (which owns Legacy Recordings), also made a tumblr page for the group.

From our earlier reporting:

Beyonce announced that beloved girl-group Destiny's Child will release "Love Songs" in late January, the band's first album since 2004's "Destiny Fulfilled."

The Amazon pre-order page for the album describes the project as a collection of previously recorded "romantic gems" -- with the addition of "Nuclear," a new song produced by Pharrell Williams. That song was written by Pharrell, Michelle Williams, James Fauntleroy and Lonny Bereal. Beyonce and Bereal provided vocal production.

"I am so proud to announce the first original Destiny's Child music in eight years!" she wrote.

The group split in 2005 following their successful "Destiny Fulfilled and Lovin' It Tour" to focus on their solo careers. Their last live performance was at the 2006 NBA All-Star Game, where the group sang "The Star Spangled Banner."
