Destiny’s Child have reunited, appearing together last night (March 28) at the taping of the 2015 Stellar Gospel Music Awards.
Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland joined their former bandmate Michelle Williams to perform her recent single ‘Say Yes’, in which they both appear. Watch footage of the performance beneath.
Destiny’s Child formed in 1990 and sold around 60 million records before disbanding in 2006. They previously reformed for a performance at the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé scrapped an entire Fela Kuti-inspired album, according to one of her record producers, The-Dream. The singer recorded approximately 20 songs in an attempt to replicate Kuti’s classic afrobeat sound, most of which have never been released.
The-Dream – who has worked with Beyoncé on a number of tracks, including ‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)’ – revealed the news in an entry for lyric annotation site Genius.
“We did a whole Fela album that didn’t go up. It was right before we did [the album] ‘4’,” he wrote on the Genius page for ‘End of Time’. “We did a whole different sounding thing, about 20 songs. She said she wanted to do something that sounds like Fela. That’s why there’s so much of that sound in the ‘End Of Time’.
“There’s always multiple albums being made. Most of the time we’re just being creative, period. We’re talking about B, somebody who sings all day long and somebody who writes all day long. There’s probably a hundred records just sitting around.”
