Stop everything. Beyonce just announced via her Facebook page that after eight long years, Destiny's Child is finally getting back together!
Bey, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams are releasing a compilation CD, titled Destiny's Child: Love Songs. The slow-jam-heavy album hits stores on January 29th, and it features a never-before-heard DC track — "Nuclear" — produced by Pharrell Williams.
Cue the dance party! We hope this announcement means that Destiny's Child will be back in the fashion spotlight, because we've really missed those Tina Knowles-designed matching outfits.
Everyone has a Destiny's Child fashion memory, right? Here are a few of ours.
Lindsay: The year was 2000, and I was ecstatic because my grandparents bought me and my best friend tickets to the Nickelodeon "All That Music & More Festival" it was my second-ever concert behind N*SYNC. We were so excited, we went to the mall and bought coordinating outfits at the Gap. Mine? A dark navy bedazzled halter top with cut-off denim shorts. Oh, and a nameplate necklace that said "Sassy" after my AOL screen name "SassyChik713," of course. It was the best day of my life, one because, duh, "Jumpin' Jumpin" live! And two, my grandparents bought tickets four seats away. That's, like, ground-breaking stuff when you're in middle school, guys.
Danica: The first and only time I ever saw Destiny's Child perform live was in late 1997, when they supported Wyclef Jean on tour—right before their first single, "No, No, No" dropped. The venue? A college gymnasium in New Hampshire—there were maybe less than 200 students there? I don't think the show sold out. The Destiny's Child girls wore baby-tees with butterflies screenprinted on them. They were booed offstage, with the college kids chanting "No, No, No, No, No" right back at 'em.
Me: Sadly, I never saw Destiny's Child live. But the orange suede poncho dresses and turquoise middle school art teacher jewelry they wore to the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards will be forever seared into my brain.
Tell us, are you guys really ready for this jelly?
