Since we haven't seen Beyonce in a while, I decided to upload some older photos that were missing from our gallery. Enjoy!

After more than 10 years, Destiny's Child is back at No. 1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart. Meanwhile, Brandy reigns after seven years.

"The Girl Is Mine," by 99 Souls featuring Destiny's Child and Brandy, rises 2-1 on the chart (dated March 5). The track is a mash-up of Destiny's Child's "Girl," a No. 5 Dance Club Songs, and No. 23 Billboard Hot 100, hit in 2005, and Brandy and Monica's "The Boy Is Mine," which led the Hot 100 for 13 weeks in 1998.

Destiny's Child scores its fourth Dance Club Songs topper, Brandy her third and British house duo 99 Souls its first. Destiny's Child had last led with "Soldier" (featuring T.I. and Lil Wayne) in February 2005. Brandy had last topped the chart with "Long Distance" in March 2009. Notably, the three principal Destiny's Child members have all hit the summit as soloists: Beyonce (22 No. 1s), Kelly Rowland (three) and Michelle Williams (one).

Remixes from Chris Lorenzo, Crookers, and Danny Howard, among others, helped "Girl" grab the No. 1 spot.

“As a child, I spent every single summer with Beyoncé and Solange. The last day of school, Aunt Tina would pick me up, then they dropped me off home the night before the first day of school. I’d go to watch Beyonce perform, and she was probably 5 years old—beauty pageants, whatever Houston had, she was there performing with a mic in her hand. I mean, she loved it, but there was still something very unique and pretty, something different from all the other 5-year-olds who sang their favorite songs. In some ways, she was kind of shy. I think she understood then that she had a great voice, because I think when you sing it’s something you feel. You can feel your voice box, the vibrations; you can hear it. But she was never overt. She didn’t walk into a room, and be like, ‘Hey, check this out, look what I can do.’ No, she was very humble and quiet. If she was asked to sing, she gladly did it, even if she wasn’t in the mood. You know, family is proud. We’d go visit other relatives and she would be playing like a normal kid, and then, ‘Hey, come sing this song for my friend.’ She’d say, ‘OK.’ And then she’d go sing to them, and then she’d go back and play. She never reveled in it. She’d went back to being a kid.

"I do believe that if she could sing under a secret identity and still affect people and touch their lives that she’d rather not be famous. That, if she had her choice, she’d rather take off her shoes and do cartwheels in the park. That’s really who she’d like to be. But unfortunately that’s something you give up when you become as famous as she is. We’ve tried it many times. We tried it in London a few summers ago—Tina, Solange, and myself. We were riding bikes and just hanging out, and Beyoncé was at the hotel and was, like, "I’m coming!" And we waited, and she got there and arrived with a big crowd of people behind her. We tried to ignore it, but even in that moment she said, "You guys enjoy the day and I’m going to go." And she left. But she doesn’t complain about it. This is what she was born to do and she’s loved it since she was a kid. She never takes it for granted. She appreciates every second of it. It’s like she’s painting a piece of art. Until the last color is on the canvas, she’s not done. Until it’s dry and it’s amazing and it’s finished and it’s up hanging on the wall, she’s not done.” Read more...

Music World Entertainment, Columbia Records, and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, proudly announce the upcoming release of the Destiny's Child Video Anthology, the first-ever career-spanning collection of sixteen iconic short music films that define the look and sound of a pivotal era (1998-2004) of musical and cultural history. The DVD will be available starting June 4, 2013.

Originally made to accompany smash singles and key tracks from the era's top-selling female vocal group, the Destiny's Child video catalog shows the artists' mastery and understanding of visual and musical elements alive in the zeitgeist.

Collaborating with top directors and creative teams for their videos, Destiny's Child realized a vision of pop ferocity and elegance that set the bar for generations to come and opened up whole new horizon for R&B/Pop with an unbroken string of groundbreaking classics beginning with "No, No, No " (Parts 1 and 2) in 1998, running through MTV Video Award Winners "Say My Name" (from 1999's The Writing's On The Wall) and "Survivor" (from 2001's Survivor) and other groundbreaking classics including "Independent Women Part 1," "Bootylicious," "Bills, Bills, Bills" and more.

The Destiny's Child Video Anthology is the group's third release through Legacy Recordings. The first two -- 2012's Playlist - The Very Best of Destiny's Child and 2013's romantically-themed Love Songs -- were career-spanning compilation albums illuminating different sides of the profoundly influential vocal group, helping to fuel a renewed surge of interest in Destiny's Child which crescendoed in the group's triumphal "reunion" set at the Super Bowl 2013 half-time show. Released in October 2012, Playlist - The Very Best of Destiny's Child is among the most successful of Legacy's popular "Playlist" series--as noted in (November 30, 2012), "The highest ranking 'Playlist' album is Destiny's Child's Playlist: The Very Best of Destiny's Child...."-- while Love Songs made waves with the debut of "Nuclear," the first new Destiny's Child studio recording since 2004. Both Playlist (#77) and Love Songs (#72) debuted in the upper half of the Billboard 200 and, coincidentally, each hit #14 on the R&B Albums chart, remarkable achievements for catalog releases.

Drake knows what's up.

Girls (and boys, dogs, unicorns—everyone!) love Beyoncé. Late Monday night, the 26-year-old rapper released a new, NSFW song, aptly titled "Girls Love Beyoncé." In the track, James Fauntleroy even covers a portion of Destiny's Child's 1999 hit "Say My Name."

"Look, I know girls love Beyoncé," Drake raps, then quickly turns to, "Girls love to f--k with your conscience / Girls hate when n---as go missing, and shawty you ain't no different."

"These days it's hard to meet women / Feel like my love life is finished / I've been avoiding commitment / That's why I'm in this position," he goes on. "I'm scared to let somebody in on this / No new friends, no, no, no, no / You know how this s--t goes."

Drake, with the help of Mr. Fauntleroy, rap-sings, "If you're alone, then say my name, say my name, say my name." (Y'all remember the chorus.)

The rest of the track continues with more from Drake on the woes of women, and of course, the vintage Destiny's Child track remains the hook.

While Beyonce saw some early sales increases a week ago on Billboard's charts, the full impact of her Feb. 3 Super Bowl halftime performance is felt on this week's tallies.

The new charts reflect the Nielsen SoundScan sales tracking week that ended on Feb. 10 -- the first week's worth of post-game reaction.

For the week, the overall combined album sales of Beyonce and her group Destiny's Child (which reformed during the show) gain by 40% to 28,000. The largest-selling album of either act for the past week was Beyonce's "4," which moved 6,000 (up 59%).

In the week before the Super Bowl (ending Jan. 27), their combined album sales were just 7,000. A week later (ending Feb. 3), they moved 20,000.

Individually, Beyonce's albums sold 15,000 in the week ending Feb. 10 (up 62% from 9,000) while Destiny's Child's moved 13,000 (up 21% from 11,000).

A year ago, in the first week after the Super Bowl, 2012 halftime performer Madonna saw her album sales dip to 22,000 (down from 26,000 the week of the game).

In terms of song download sales, the Beyonce and Destiny's Child sold a combined 280,000 downloads (up 68%) for the week ending Feb. 10. Comparatively, in the week ending Jan. 27, they sold 72,000. A week later, they jumped to 167,000.

The best-selling song by either for the week ending Feb. 10 was Beyonce's "Crazy In Love" -- which was performed in the halftime set. It sold 33,000 for a gain of 203%. The next four largest-selling Beyonce/Destiny's Child songs for the Feb. 10 week were all by Beyonce: "Halo" (32,000; up 68%), "Single Ladies" (22,000; up 81%), "Love On Top" (18,000; up 94%) and "End of Time" (12,000; up 212%).

While the Super Bowl happened on the final day (Feb. 3) of the most recent Nielsen SoundScan sales tracking week, the game's halftime performer -- Beyonce -- still sees some mighty sales gains on the charts.

The diva headlined the CBS-broadcast festivities in New Orleans, where she performed eight songs and reunited with Destiny's Child.

In terms of sales figures, Beyonce's catalog of albums (solo and with Destiny's Child) sold 20,000 in the week ending Feb. 3 -- up 197% compared to the previous week. Splitting the two acts apart, Beyonce sold 9,000 (up 119%) while Destiny's Child shifted 11,000 (up 328%). The latter number is inflated thanks to the new release Love Songs, which bowed on Tuesday, Jan. 29. The compilation sold 6,000 copies and debuts at No. 72 on the Billboard 200.

Love Songs features one new recording, "Nuclear," which moved 4,000 downloads last week (its debut frame). It was Destiny's Child's fourth-largest seller for the week, after "Say My Name" (6,000; up 231%), "Survivor" (5,000; up 168%) and "Independent Women (Part 1)" (4,000; up 550%).

Two Destiny's Child tunes were performed at the Super Bowl: "Bootylicious" and "Independent Women (Part 1)." As for "Bootylicious," its sales also gained. It sold 4,000 last week -- up 347%.

As for overall digital song sales, Beyonce and Destiny's Child shifted 167,000 downloads for the week (up 132%). Beyonce's own songs moved 122,000 (up 103%) while Destiny's Child's sold 44,000 (up 286%).

The biggest selling song for either act in the week was Beyonce's "Halo," which moved 19,000 downloads (up 338%). The song closed the diva's halftime performance.

Further impact from the halftime show could be felt next week, after a full seven days' worth of sales are registered post-game.

Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime show has predictably sent sales of her music skyrocketing.

The diva headlined the Super Bowl XLVII halftime festivities in New Orleans last night (Feb. 3), where she performed eight songs and reunited with Destiny's Child.

Industry sources suggest that in the week ending Feb. 3, Beyonce's digital album sales jumped by over 230%. Meanwhile, those of her group Destiny's Child soared by more than 600%. That latter increase is inordinately large as it includes sales of the trio's brand new "Love Songs" compilation, released last Tuesday. The set features one new recording, "Nuclear."

The album sales gains are also aided by discount pricing in both the iTunes and Amazon MP3 stores. The former discounted key earlier titles from Beyonce and Destiny's Child to $7.99 while the latter marked them down to between $5 and $7.99.

In terms of digital song sales, Beyonce's grew by an estimated 85% while Destiny Child's rose by over 300%.

Beyonce's biggest selling song of the week was "Halo," which closed her eight-song halftime set. The biggest Destiny's Child song of the week, according to early data, looks to be "Say My Name" (which was not part of the halftime medley). Two Destiny's Child tunes were performed at the Super Bowl: "Bootylicious" and "Independent Women (Part 1)."

The week's official Nielsen SoundScan sales figures for Beyonce and Destiny's Child will be released on Wednesday (Feb. 6). Further impact from the halftime show will be felt next week, after a full seven days' worth of sales are registered post-game.
To construct their brief-but-electric reunion at the Super Bowl in New Orleans on Sunday (Feb. 3), Destiny's Child singers Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams had a slew of beloved classics to choose from -- and, as it turns out, Beyonce nixed one of the supergroup's biggest hits from the setlist, a source tells Us Weekly exclusively.

"They rehearsed with 'Bills, Bills, Bills,'" the source says of the trio's 1999 smash -- their first bonafide number one single. "And the band started talking about, 'How come they're not doing 'Bootylicious?'"

The problem with "Bills"? "It turned out to be too slow and wasn't flowing with the rest of the set," the insider explains. 2001's number hit "Bootylicious," which the group ultimately performed together, "was a better way to introduce the girls with their names. It worked so much better."

Beyonce also opted to nix the group's midtempo new single, "Nuclear," opting instead for 2000's "Independent Women Part I" before seguing into Beyonce's solo hit "Single Ladies."

Jay-Z was also supposed to join Beyonce on stage for "Crazy in Love" but decided at the last minute not to do so.

"He wanted that to be her moment and didn't want to take away from it," a source close to the couple tells Us Weekly. "She had been working her ass off."

Instead, the 43-year-old hip-hop mogul watched his wife perform from a special area with their 12-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy, and other family members.
Millions of fans cheered on Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams during their Destiny's Child reunion at Sunday's Super Bowl. But there are a few particular fans who are making sure everyone knows they're team players, even if they were off the team long ago.

LaTavia Roberson, who was part of Destiny's Child in its first incarnation, said she had nothing but love for the ladies.

"Obviously, seeing Beyonce perform was the highlight for me," Roberson told Celebuzz on Monday. "I got a real surprise when both Kelly and Michelle both popped up on the stage like that."

"Hats off to Bee's halftime show! She murdered it!!!!" Roberson tweeted Monday.

She added that she was "pleased" with the performance she couldn't be a part of.

"I thought they all looked great and did a good job with their dance moves," she added. "Beyonce was especially amazing. She looked fabulous, and her voice was really strong. During the performance somebody texted me to say they could not hear Kelly and Michelle sing. It was so noisy in the house where we watched the performance that I did not really notice anything wrong. But who knows? They probably had some technical problems." Read more...
Beyonce thanked Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for performing together at the Super Bowl halftime show in a letter which she posted on her Tumblr page and also added two new Instagram pictures from behind the scenes.

How true are the rumors about Destiny’s Child performing at the Super Bowl this weekend?

It could be a possibility. I just know with my schedule right now, it’s just been a little hectic. The possibility of a reunion in the future, is near.

What was the inspiration behind the forthcoming Destiny’s Child Love Songs album?

It’s a compilation of the old songs and we were just like “You know what, let’s give these lovely supporters of ours something new, just to tease them a little bit.” It was beautiful recording it together. We did it before Christmas and it was just amazing to be back together like “Ooo, we still got it!” Beyonce was like “Girl, we sound good together!” and I was like “Duh! That’s what we do boo.” DC’s voices…The connection is divine and I got goosebumps just laying my part down and blending with the other voices of Beyonce’s and Kelly’s. It was just beautiful.

Can we expect new material from Destiny’s Child soon?

In the near future. Absolutely.
After eight years of passionately pursuing solo projects, which have included both music and acting, the ladies of Destiny's Child finally reunited this year to release "Nuclear," an original single that will appear on their upcoming compilation album, Love Songs. And as Michelle Williams tells it, the trio haven't lost their vibe one bit.

"It was a bunch of fun. It was just picking up right where we left off," Williams told MTV News of collaborating with Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé on the Pharrell Williams-produced single. "The harmonies and just us stacking ... Beyoncé laid hers first, then I'd go and lay another note to the bottom, and I'm like, 'Wow, this is dope.' I literally got goose bumps. Beyoncé sent an email like, 'Man, we sound good together!' I'm like, 'Duh, that's what we do, boo! That's what we do!' "

In addition to "Nuclear," Love Songs will feature 13 additional tracks, including "Say My Name" and "Emotions," all of which were handpicked by the ladies. "Since it was titled Love Songs, it was like, 'What are some of the best love songs ?' You've got 'Cater 2 U' then you've got 'If' — meaning you're not doing right, but I still love you — then the title song 'Love' from the Destiny Fulfilled album."

Michelle said the most difficult part of selecting songs for the compilation fell on Beyoncé and Kelly, who had to look way back to their teenage years. "I think what was harder for them was to go back even before I got in the group, to the archive from when they were 12 and 13 years old singing about love," she explained. "I think it might've been a little more difficult for them to choose those songs, but it really was fun. I was cracking up when we were compiling the artwork and we could tell which pictures were good budget, low budget, records sold, not that many sold." Read more...
