Destiny's Child - Love Songs

Yesterday, we learned that Destiny’s Child had gotten together to record their first new track since 2004, and that it’d show up on a new collection called Love Songs. And earlier today, news circulated that the group would reunite during Beyoncé’s Super Bowl Halftime Show performance. And just now, that song, the Pharrell-produced “Nuclear,” hit the internet. For all the hoopla surrounding the song, it’s an oddly low-impact piece of music, a breezy and soft pledge of devotion over a rattling breakbeat that reminds me of Soul II Soul. Given how huge this song is seemingly predestined to be, you’d think someone could’ve workshopped that hook a little bit longer. I don’t know; maybe it’ll grow on me. In any case, you can hear the song below.

Love Songs is out 1/29 on Sony Legacy.

  2. I’ve listened to six times in a row now and I think it’s kind of perfect. I’m probably wrong, but whatever.

          • hey you silly guys. over the past year, this website has spoken highly of music by justin bieber, destiny’s child (sort of), kesha, and taylor swift, among may other mainstream acts. It’s not a matter of selecting certain acts with which to approve, it’s a matter of connecting with music REGARDLESS of whether or not it satisfies some “hipster” qualification. So, you are completely, 100% off the mark. There is absolutely nothing about listening to destiny’s child that “makes them look cool.” it’s incredibly uncool to listen to destiny’s child if you think about it. so, by saying that people shouldn’t listen to destiny’s child because it doesn’t fulfill some sort of “cool criterion” that you have, you have actually endorsed the hipster ethos that you hate. in other words, HA!
            It’s sad to support an artist because you think you have to, or you think it’s what others expect of you. it’s also likely representative of a lack of confidence. HA!

            make some changes in your lives.

  8. I still can’t believe people actually expected this to be something worthwhile.

  9. Michelle will always be my favorite child of Destiny and I DONT CARE WHO KNOWS IT

  10. It sounds like they used Garageband samples.

  11. It’s crazy to think Michelle Williams from Dawson’s Creek was in this group.

  13. Hipsters can’t only like K-pop, we need to claim some American pop also.

  14. love the track

  15. If only Left-Eye was still around RIP. TLC would take this game to the next level of waavy.
    Although they don’t have Beyonce’s star power, TLC has the depth.
    Like the Giants willing the World Series, no stars but so deep.
