According to the New York Post’s Page Six, record execs are so worried about Beyoncé’s newest album, 4, that they are considering a Destiny’s Child reunion. The album would tentatively be called, “Family Reunion.”
For those of you who don’t remember Destiny’s Child (what were you listening to in 2001?) they were the winsome threesome composed of Beyoncé Knowles, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland that brought us such gems as “Survivor” and “Say My Name.”
An industry insider told Page Six that Columbia Records is “very nervous” about Beyoncé’s new record.
“It doesn’t have the hit songs that her fans are used to,” the insider said. “They asked her to make changes, but she said no.”
Beyoncé officially denies the claim, however, Page Six Reports.
“All of this is completely untrue,” her rep said. “All of it.”
Beyoncé has obviously come a long way since her DC days, releasing two multi-platinum-selling albums and starring in the movie Dreamgirls, among many other achievements, since DC broke up.
The other members of DC have found their own success as well. Michelle Williams has recorded gospel albums and performed on Broadway, while Kelly Rowland recently reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs with her single “Motivation,” featuring Little Wayne.
With such solo accomplishments, will the members of Destiny’s Child really want to reunite?
Their reunion wouldn’t be unreasonable, however, as the group’s music is far from obsolete. If my high school prom is any indication, DC’s “Bootilicious” will continue to heat up dance floors for years to come.
What do you think, collegiettes™? Would you listen to a DC reunion album? Is this even going to happen?
