Beyonce has never been a woman to do anything by halves, and the Bootylicious one shows no signs of changing in 2013.
Ahead of her highly anticipated halftime show at the upcoming Super Bowl XLVII, which kicks off at the Mercedes-Benz superdome in New Orleans on February 3, Us Magazine is reporting that Beyonce will reunite with Destiny’s Child for an onstage performance.
This news comes on the back of Thursday’s Facebook announcement that the R&B trio will release a compilation album titled Love Songs on January 29 along with one new song “Nuclear.” NME has the full tracklisting.
Of course, it’s more likely that Destiny’s Child are hooking up for one performance — or a few — to promote their album release, rather than reforming for the long-term.
Reasons why? Well, lets see: time, motherhood, and Beyonce’s upcoming new album –– not to mention Kelly Rowland’s very healthy dance/pop career.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the follow up to 2011’s 4 is already in the works. Scheduled to drop in 2013, the singer has enlisted heavyweight collaborators in the shape of Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Pharrell Williams, and Dream for her fifth album.
Beyonce may be superwoman, but with a recently inked $50 million Pepsi deal to honor, a child, a second presidential inauguration to perform at, and a self-directed HBO documentary to oversee before its February 16 airing — that doesn’t leave a lot of time for Destiny’s Child: Part two.
Regardless, one Destiny’s Child show or 100 will make for fantastic viewing and it will be interesting to see what Rowland and Michelle Williams bring to the table now that they’ve flown solo in the eight year interm.
According to Us Magazine, multiple sources claim Beyonce will open the show solo before she is joined by the girls midway for a hit-laden medley –– and the unveiling of their new song “Nuclear.”
The power-packed show will then reportedly end with the Houston native on stage by herself for a finale that will include the as-yet-unannounced first single from her fifth album.
If that all sounds like a tall order, it’s because it is. But if anyone can pull it off, it’s Queen Bey.
“When I was writing the Destiny’s Child songs, it was a big thing to be that young and taking control. And the label at the time didn’t know that we were going to be that successful, so they gave us all control. And I got used to it. It is my goal in life to be that example. I now know that, yes, I am powerful. I’m more powerful than my mind can even digest and understand.”
Now for that little something Blue … Ivy.
Captured for posterity by her parents in two shots which were released publicly, Blue Ivy spent her first birthday (January 7) in the Bahamas, the Daily Mail reports.
Her mother was also there for a photo shoot, but as the pictures show, Beyonce made sure she set aside some quality time to lark with her daughter in that spectacular ocean.
