Can We Expect A Full Destiny's Child Reunion? What Are The Chances?

After a show-stopping half-time show at this year’s Super Bowl, what exactly does the future hold for Destiny’s Child? They’ve admitted that their new track ‘Nuclear’ was recorded in a hurry. Will they be trying to make amends by spending a bit more time in the recording studio and trying to better their back catalogue with a new slew of songs? Or was Beyonce merely using Michelle and Kelly as pawns in a bid to build the hype around her post-baby career and Super Bowl performance?

The bulk of the hype surrounding Beyonce (ok, putting aside all the lip-sync nonsense) was over whether or not the band would reunite for the performance. We all knew they would, of course and they did a terrible job of pretending otherwise but the build-up was half the fun. When it came to the actual performance, though, there was no pretending who the real star of the show was. Whilst Beyonce oozed sass and confidence, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams showed the nerves of two performers unused to performing to such a huge audience (let’s not forget the TV viewers at home, let alone those in the stadium) and ended up looking like little more than Beyonce’s hand-picked backing dancers / vocalists. Does Beyonce really need a Destiny’s Child reunion? We think not.

Looking at Beyonce’s recently announced tour dates, she’ll be heading off in a few weeks to start the tour on April 15 and won’t be done until August. The pop world is unforgiving and has a short memory - much of the Destiny’s Child reunion hype will have died down by then. Plus, as career driven as she clearly is, she will most likely want a bit of quality time with Blue Ivy and Jay Z once she’s done shaking her thighs all across the globe. Fun though that reunion was, we don’t think Kelly and Michelle should sit waiting for Bey’s call for too long.

First of all, I absolutely do not feel that Beyonce used the girls to build up some type of hype around her post-baby career and Super Bowl performance. Not at all, she alway in special moments, include the girls in specials opportunies to share in!! I think thats really big hearted of her.... But before one jump on the bashing Beyonce's bandwagon, one needs to think about all the DC girls prior engagements. And furthermore, I truly think this is just to satify contractual agreements with Matthew & their record label. Then ponder whether they are available to even consider a DC reunion tour. As far as the song "Nuclear" is considered, well I honestly feel that song is one of many that the girls recorded early on that didn't make it on any of their previous CDs... I know Michelle Williams is now supposely joining the cast of "Fela'' (a production Jay-Z & Will Smith is affiliated with.). So, they all have their own solo projects going on. I would love a DC reunion, why NOT let Beyonce do her thing & hopefully the latter part of the year, DC will be READY!! One can only hope.... I'm just sayin'.....
