The highly-anticipated Destiny’s Child reunion is a go, according to Mathew Knowles.
The longtime manager of the now-defunct R&B group is giving hope to a new tour and album ten years after Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams called it quits. There have been whispers of a reunion for quite some time, but it seems Mathew is finally in contact with the ladies and setting up their big comeback.
“There will be another Destiny’s Child album and a reunion. I got a wonderful email from Michelle [Williams, from the band] two nights ago,” Mathew recently told heat magazine. “She said, ‘Shouldn’t be a problem with you and I. I’m clear on who does what and that’s all that matters. I’ve been clear on my role for 15 years and have no issues.’”
“We set goals high and only had one – to be the number-one female artists of all time.”
Williams has also entertained reunion talk, although she has not confirmed or denied any truth to the rumors.
She told Radar Online last week: “We have not talked about whether or not we would do another tour, but sure! Why not? Every few years we do something together, so you never know. We always have a blast when we are together, so what you see when you see us out is just sisters having a good time together all the time.”
Destiny’s Child’s last studio album, Destiny Fulfilled, was released in November 2004, followed by several compilation albums including #1’s (2005), Playlist: The Very Best of Destiny’s Child (2012) and Love Songs (2013). The ladies have also performed on each other’s solo projects for songs such as “Say Yes” and “You Changed.”
