Destiny’s Child have unwrapped their new single “Nuclear,” ahead of their highly anticipated reunion during Beyonce’s halftime show at the upcoming Super Bowl.
As announced by Beyonce via Facebook on Thursday, the one time world straddling R&B girl group are ending their eight-year hiatus to release a compilation album Love Songs, which includes the Pharrell Williams-produced and newly recorded “Nuclear.”
According to Us Magazine, and now everyone else, Destiny’s Child will make an appearance midway through Beyonce’s Super Bowl set to deliver a hit-laden medley which is expected to include a debut of “Nuclear.”
Billboard has confirmed that the 14-tracks featured on Love Songs will be entirely “romantic-themed songs” that were recorded between 1997-2004, with the exception of “Nuclear.” The album drops on January 29.
Citing influences fans can expect to hear, the singer revealed these to be:
“Mostly R&B. I always have my Prince and rock/soul influences. There’s a bit of D’Angelo, some ’60s doo-wop. And Aretha and Diana Ross.”
The Houston native has enlisted a cast of industry heavyweights — Pharrell, Timbaland, Dream, and Justin Timberlake — on co-writing and production chores, and the album is expected to arrive in 2013. Beyonce will reportedly unveil a new cut from her upcoming record during her Super Bowl performance, NME reports.
Super Bowl XLVII takes place on February 3 at the Mercedes-Benz superdome in New Orleans.
The countdown begins.
