Destiny’s Child Reunion???
Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle are reportedly in talks of reuniting next year, which will mark the 20th anniversary of Michelle Williams joining the group.
“Beyonce has been desperate to get the girls back together with her in the studio and she can’t think of a better time than 2020, when they will be marking two decades as one of the world’s biggest all-female groups. She saw the success of the Spice Girls tour and wants to replicate that — but far bigger and better.”
They want to record new music and put it out alongside some of their biggest hits. Then they want to do a tour which will be short enough for them to fit it into their schedules, but big enough to make sure all their fans can make a date to see them.
