Destiny's Child 'Nuclear' Available Online - Does it Meet Expectations? (Video)

Destiny's Child haven't just promised to return, they really have. Their first single, called 'Nuclear', has been uploaded online today and the jury's out on the track so far.

Comments on the YouTube video are indecisive. Some are dubbing it very '90s, which it isn't really. To call it 'oldschool' even is inaccurate. While there are certain aspects of the track that are reminiscent of a Brandy track or two, the production is distinctly contemporary. Despite being an R&B group, there is something of underground alternative bands such as MS MR, or even (and we're pushing the boat way out here) School of Seven Bells, in there somewhere too. Of course the sultry tones of Beyonce, Michelle Williams and Kelly Roland keep it very much 'Destiny's Child'. Dreamy and low tempo but repetitive and with a catchy melody, it's primed and ready for remixes and acoustic covers. 

Having said this, it's understandable for fans to be somewhat downhearted. Their music has reached a level of maturation that fans may not have wanted them to read. The days of 'Bootylicious' are not gone, per se, but it is certainly a product of the past. Beyonce is married and has a child now, while that isn't necessarily the be all and end all of being young and fun, singing a song with the lyrics "They want to know how we keep our sh*t together / They're wondering / It's just evolution / We're just getting better" makes sense.
