Two years on from their unforgettable reunion at Coachella, it is speculated that former trio; Beyoncé, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland are in talks for another reunion sometime soon. Speaking to The Mirror, insider sources note there have been “tentative talks” between all three parties, noting that new music could be in the pipeline later in the year following the end of the coronavirus pandemic. “They’ve always said they would get back together one day when the time is right – and there is no time like the present,” the source said.
Including hits such as Independent Women, Survivor and Say My Name, the trio was once of the world’s most successful girl groups, having sold over 60 million records and having been nominated for a total of 14 Grammy Awards. While all three of them have gone on to have successful solo careers in their own right, a reunion would “really lift fans’ spirits,” according to the source. Having officially disbanded in 2006, Beyoncé, Williams, and Rowland have remained friends, featuring in each other’s music and making guest appearances in one another’s performances. Prior to Coachella, they reunited to perform at Beyoncé’s Half Time performance at the 2013 Super Bowl.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight last year, Rowland addressed the possibility of a reunion, saying “I know every time there is a decision to be made for myself and the ladies to do something, it’s usually a surprise.” “Our fans have always been so supportive and so awesome, so I like to give them surprises.” Echoing her sentiment, Beyoncé’s father and previous manager of the group, Matthew Knowles prompted discussion around doing something to mark Destiny’s Child’s 30th anniversary this year, saying “we’ll reveal some of the original Destiny’s Child wardrobe. So it would be great to consummate that with a Destiny’s Child tour, or integrate a tour into that activity.”
