Could the R&B trio be reforming?
The R&B girl group formed in 1997 and sold around 60 million records before disbanding in 2006, making 2016 the 10-year anniversary of their split and 2017 the 20th anniversary of their formation.
Earlier this week, a Destiny’s Child Instagram page was launched, with three photos posted so far (see one beneath). Fans have since taken to social media to speculate what it could mean.
One wrote: “Destiny’s child 20th anniversary is next year and all of a sudden a Verified Instagram pops up. They have something planned”. Another added: “Destiny’s Child reunion?!? My soul isn’t ready”.
However, Stereogum has since pointed out that the Instagram account is managed by Legacy Recordings, a Sony imprint responsible for retrospective releases.
Singers Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams attended the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards together on Monday, where they were asked about a possible reunion. “We haven’t talked anything about that,”Rowland told E! News.
Rowland did, however, reveal that the pair had dinner with Beyonce the previous evening: “We’ve just been enjoying each other’s company and love and enjoying being women.”
Destiny’s Child previously reformed for a performance at the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show and later reunited live in March, appearing together at the 2015 Stellar Gospel Music Awards.
Rumours have circulated in the past that the R&B trio may reunite after the group’s manager Mathew Knowles described himself as “hopeful” that they will reunite for a new album.
