From “Independent Women” to “Bills, Bills, Bills,” there were few boomboxes and Walkmans in the late ’90s/early 2000s that did not have Destiny’s Child hits blasting through the speakers. Alongside Beyoncé’s, Kelly’s, and Michelle’s harmonies and matching outfits (courtesy of Tina Knowles), the group championed a message of female empowerment and sisterhood, however flawed, that seems to be missing from today’s music. Destiny’s Child fans will be happy to hear that unreleased material from the high-powered girl group will be released this fall.
Former manager of Destiny’s Child and father to Beyoncé, Matthew Knowles told The Huffington Post that we can expect new music from the group as early as November:
“We still have our joint venture with Sony, and in November we’re putting out two Destiny’s Child catalog records with new material.”
A reunion tour, however, is not currently in the works:
“It takes a year of planning to do these tours, but first it starts with the artist wanting to do it. 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.”
Clutchettes, are you checking for new music from Destiny’s Child? What former girl group would you like to see reunited and in the studio?
