Mathew Knowles Teases New Destiny’s Child Project: Is This For Real?
We love reunions. Nostalgia is water to millennials. So that’s why we’re all really, really ready for another one, perhaps the biggest one of all.
With Beyonce on top of the world, maybe it doesn’t make sense to do a well-publicized throwback to her Destiny’s Child days. After all, she doesn’t need it. But in a lot of other, better ways, it’s what the world needs right now.
Despite the fact that Beyonce is no longer represented by her father Mathew Knowles, he has some projects in the works that at best, hint at a reunion and at worst, just gives the world more information about the hip-hop threesome we all loved.
The world got a hint of this hypothetical magnificence at the 2013 Super Bowl Half Time Show, when performer Beyonce brought to the stage her fellow (and former) Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Seriously, chills ran throughout the audience and across the world.
We need that again.
Hopefully, we’ll get it, or something similar. On Monday, Sept. 21st, Mathew Knowles revealed that he’s “working on a few Destiny’s Child projects right now” and that he’s “extremely hopeful that the ladies will come back with an album and a tour.” We are too!
Sadly, it seems like Mathew doesn’t have the power to reunite the girls, though that doesn’t mean they won’t do it themselves anytime soon. They recently sang together on Miz Williams’s gospel track ‘Say Yes,’ as well as performing the song at the Stellar Gospel Music Awards. Clearly, the girls aren’t opposed to working and performing together. That has to be a good sign.
However, Knowles’s project seems to be more along the lines of an autobiography and a corresponding biopic:
“My second book will be the autobiography of Destiny’s Child. I’m talking to the film and TV community right now, regarding a Destiny’s Child movie or TV series of some sort.”
I guess, for now, we’ll have to content ourselves with this development and cross our fingers for more.
