And they hit back at doubters who thought the girl group would never work together again...

DESTINY’S CHILD are back in the studio working on their fourth album.

And Kelly Rowland has spoken out against all the doubters who assumed that their solo projects would mean the end of the group.

She told MTV: “It was a no-brainer that all of us wanted to do another DC record. That’s where we started. That’s the mould everything grew from and you can’t just stray away from that. I know all of us are so excited about this next record and we wouldn’t have done the solo records if it wasn’t for Destiny’s Child records.

“All of us have been in three different places, so there’s a lot to talk about, a lot that’s gone on, personally. I think it’s important to talk about that on this new record, to put what we’ve been going through separately into the new record. Beyonce will tell you the same thing. With fame comes people trying to split us up, make something out of nothing.”

Famed for their knack of working with the best upcoming producers, the group are talking to Rockwilder, Kanye West and ‘Crazy In Love’ producer Rich Harrison for the follow-up to 2001’s ‘Survivor’.
