If the rumors are true, Destiny's Child is going to have the reunion of the century.
Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams will reportedly reunite for a Destiny's Child performance during the 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show, according to Us Weekly. Sources tell the magazine that Beyonce will kick off the Halftime Show solo and then midway through, Rowland and Williams will join her to perform their new song, "Nuclear." Beyonce will then take center stage again for a big finale.
The possible Destiny's Child Super Bowl performance would be the group's first live show since a farewell gig during the 2006 NBA All-Star game, notes MTV News. The group split up in 2005 and each of the three members worked on solo projects.
On Thursday, news was posted onto the Destiny's Child Facebook page revealing that the group will reunite on the new album, "Love Songs," to drop in late January. "Love Songs" is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
Beyonce confirmed the news on her official Tumblr. "I am so proud to announce the first original Destiny's Child music in eight years!"
In August, Rowland dismissed a Destiny's Child reunion. "We have a good time together and I think that's the most important thing," she told Canada's Jam. "We don't want to scratch each other's eyes out; we love each other too much. If (reuniting is) something that we would want to do, you know, (we would do it) but in the meantime we're just enjoying each other's friendship. That's the greatest gift of Destiny's Child."
But Beyonce's father, Mathew Knowles, spoke of a Destiny's Child reunion tour to HuffPost back in July.
"It takes a year of planning to do these tours, but first it starts with the artist wanting to do it," he said. "And I think the ladies are still working happily in their solo careers. And I hope in the next five years that there is a reunion tour. I think it would be incredible. The hardest thing would be choosing which songs they’re going to do, because we would want to mix it up with solo hits and Destiny’s Child hits. We would have to throw away some number ones from off the set list."
