Hear the First New Destiny’s Child Song in Eight Years 

On the heels of the surprise announcement that the ladies of Destiny’s Child had reunited in the studio for the first time in eight years, and the even better news that members Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland would be joining Beyonce on stage during her halftime Super Bowl performance, comes a brand new song from the trio, “Nuclear.”

The song is a mid-tempo track that feels both old and new at once, reminiscent of early ’90s dance music (Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock’s “It Takes Two” comes to mind), mixed with the lush harmonies we’ve come to expect from the ladies. Between this and the news that Justin Timberlake may finally be returning to music after more than six years, 2013 is off to a great for pop music fans—especially those who really enjoyed 2003.
