The early aughts are coming back in full force in 2013!
First, the biggest news of the morning that we awoke to (nope, not the Oscars)—that Justin Timberlake will bring sexy back in three days!—put a smile on our face; now, just in time for our lunchtime margarita, we have something extra to cheer to: the Destiny's Child reunion is confirmed!
But today we've gotten word that the ladies are taking one massive stage to make it official...
Updated Friday, 11:15 a.m. (PST):
US Weekley is reporting (so who knows how confirmed it really is...) that Destiny's Child will actually perform together during Beyoncé's Super Bowl haftime show!!
According to reports, Beyonce will open the show, and will eventually be joined by Destiny's Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. The trio will perform a short medley of their biggest hits, as well as a new song, "Nuclear."
So, Instincters, does this at all change your plans for Feb. 3?
That's right, the first new music in eight years from one of the most successful pop groups of all time will be released in due time, according to a tweet from Beyoncé.
"I am so proud to announce the first original Destiny's Child music in eight years! - Beyoncé"," the deity tweeted earlier today.
Contact Music has more:
Additionally there was a link to pre-order the new material from Amazon, with the price suggesting that this could be an entire album of new songs. The news means that both Knowles and her husband Jay Z could have new music out this month, with speculation mounting that a new Justin Timberlake track will be revealed today (January 10, 2013) featuring Hova.
This is perhaps more exciting though; as Destiny's Child, Beyonce - alongside Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams - were one of the most successful pop acts going in the first half of the last decade. Selling more than 50 million records worldwide, the trio were known for tracks like 'Say My Name', 'Independent Woman' and 'Bootylicious'. Though Knowles and Rowland in particular have gone on to solo success, it's been new Destiny's Child material that fans have always been hankering for. The group's last album was Destiny Fulfilled, a number two US- charting release which came out in 2004.
Beyoncé herself will be releasing new solo material ahead of next month's Super Bowl. Better find a bomb shelter 'cause our heads are about to explode!
