Destiny’s Child Reuniting At The Super Bowl

There is a good chance the paycheck for the gig won’t cover any “bills, bills, bills” but this is definitely a big deal. Destiny’s Child’s reunion plans reportedly go beyond a new song, with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams rumored to be joining Beyoncé at the Super Bowl halftime show.

Earlier this week Destiny’s Child announced it would be releasing a new collection of songs featuring “the most sensual and romantic recordings” from the group’s career. Due out Jan. 29, Love Songs also includes the track “Nuclear,” the first new song from Destiny’s Child since 2004. The song was co-written by Williams with Pharrell Williams (who produced the tune) as well as James Fauntleroy and Lonny Bereal.

In 2004 Destiny’s Child released its fourth and final studio album – Destiny Fulfilled – before the band embarked on its final tour and the members went their separate ways. The group’s last scheduled performance was at the 2006 NBA All-Star Game in February 2006.

And now another sporting event is bringing the singers together once more.

US Weekly reports that multiple sources have confirmed Destiny’s Child will take the stage Feb. 3 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

With Beyoncé already scheduled to headline the Super Bowl halftime show, the plan is reportedly for the star to be joined by Williams and Rowland midway through her performance. According to US Weekly, Destiny’s Child will perform a short medley of the group’s hits as well as “Nuclear.” Beyoncé will then close out the show on her own by showing off a new tune from her upcoming album.

And as for that Super Bowl paycheck, last year Forbes pointed out that Madonna wasn’t getting paid for her halftime performance because halftime show acts usually play for free.
