Destiny's Child are fighting off reports they're ready to split up by announcing plans to release two albums in 2004.

Reports about a split have started circulating again after the group's three stars, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and Beyonce Knowles, all had successes from solo ventures this year (03).

Rowland had a hit movie debut in Freddy Vs Jason, Knowles scored big with her solo album DANGEROUSLY IN LOVE, and Williams, who shot to the top of the gospel album charts with her debut album, has signed up to star in AIDA on Broadway, New York.

But the trio are determined to regroup to release a romantic Valentine's Day (14FEB04) album and a new pop album later in 2004.

The Valentine's Day album, which is as yet untitled, has already been recorded.
