Michelle Williams knows how to keep a secret. “We’re the secret queens,” the singer tells Billboard in the wake of performing two consecutive weekends at Coachella with headliner Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. The trio, who rose to commercial acclaim in the late ‘90s and early aughts as Destiny’s Child, had been keeping the surprise under wraps since February, when Bey reached out to her former band members and asked them to join her for a medley of their mega-hits including “Say My Name,” “Lose My Breath” and “Soldier.”
“It’s just like old girlfriends coming together,” explains the 37-year-old, who last reunited as Destiny’s Child at the 2015 Stellar Awards where they performed her upbeat gospel single “Say Yes.” “It’s something that when the three of us come together, we all know we feel safe within each other. Like I got your back. We’re good. I really love that about us.”
Since Destiny’s Child went on hiatus in the wake of their last album, 2004’s Destiny Fulfilled, Williams hasn’t slowed. She’s put out four solo full-lengths including her final release, 2014’s Journey to Freedom (which won’t be her last); starred on stage as leads in Chicago and Aida; launched her own furniture and candle line Believe by Michelle; and, more recently, got engaged to pastor Chad Johnson just prior to her Coachella performance. Still teeming with excitement from the pair of shows, Williams explains how it all came together.
There were rumors before Coachella that a Destiny’s Child reunion might happen. How did the conversations begin for this? Did Beyoncé call you and just say, “It’s time?”
Beyoncé’s debut at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 14 powered big gains for her music sales and streams in the U.S. in the week ending April 19, according to Nielsen Music.
The diva headlined the second night of the festival, which was streamed live on YouTube. Her well-received performance featured her husband JAY-Z, her sister Solange and a Destiny’s Child reunion alongside group members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams .
Combined, the album and song catalog of both Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child saw an 83 percent increase in sales in the week ending April 19, as the two acts combined sold 8,000 albums (up 102 percent from 4,000 a week earlier) and 37,000 digital tracks (up 79 percent from 21,000).
The biggest-selling album between the two acts was Beyoncé’s 2016 set Lemonade, which re-enters the April 28-dated Top Album Sales chart at No. 24 with 5,000 sold (up 142 percent) -- its best sales frame since the week ending Dec. 28, 2017.
On the Billboard 200 -- which ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption -- Lemonade re-enters at No. 91, while her self-titled 2013 album returns at No. 138 and 2008's I Am… Sasha Fierce jumps back onto the tally at No. 160.
Not only did Beyoncé's Coachella 2018 performance make history and shake pop culture, it also sold a ton of music. In particular, that snazzy Destiny's Child reunion where Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams harmonized with Bey to sing "Soldier," "Lose My Breath" and "Say My Name," ushered in a major bump in digital sales.
According to Nielsen, after the performance ended, digital song sales for Destiny's Child hits soared some 767% on Sunday, April 15, not even 24 hours after the group collectively wowed the crowd. The trio is marking the 20th anniversary of the chart-topping girl's group, and the sudden uptick in downloads means the ladies have not lost relevancy even though they don't often perform live together. As for Bey, though it's hard to fathom that there are some people out there who don't already own her music, she still managed to sell yet more of it. Digital song sales for Beyoncé's catalog saw a 228% increase compared to a baseline established prior to Coachella.
Beyonce, with 7,000 units sold, overall moved more units because her baseline is larger than that of Destiny's Child, which moved around 1,200 units, according to Nielsen.
Of all that music, the song "Hold Up" was the top-selling track for Beyoncé with a sales spike of 287%.
The singer's most recent album, Lemonade, hit the number 1 spot on the overall worldwide iTunes chart, as well as national charts in Brazil, Denmark and Norway. In the United States, it ascended to the fifth position.
The nominees for the 2018 Billboard Music Awards have been revealed! Beyonce is up for two awards:
Top R&B Female Artist: Beyonce
Top Latin Song: J Balvin & Willy William Ft. Beyonce, “Mi Gente”
Becky G ft. Bad Bunny, ”Mayores”
Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Bieber, “Despacito”
Maluma, “Felices Los 4”
Wisin ft. Ozuna, “Escapate Conmigo”
The 2018 Billboard Music Awards will air on NBC live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 20 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's new album "Unmasked: The Platinum Collection" featuring "Learn to Be Lonely" performed by Beyonce at the 2005 Academy Awards was released on Friday. Buy the album now on iTunes to listen to the song!
In the most recent Rolling Stone cover story, former White Stripes frontman Jack White revealed the existence of an unreleased version of Beyonce’s “Daddy Lessons.”
White spoke openly of his collaborations with Beyonce, saying the two were supposed to take to Saturday Night Live to perform "Don't Hurt Yourself" -- the searing cut from Lemonade that explicitly referred to Jay-Z’s infidelity, laced with White's cryptic guitar keys -- though the plan never came to fruition.
He also revealed another unreleased collab with Queen Bey, saying the singer had requested an (even more) country-inspired version of “Daddy Lessons,” citing blues musician Seasick Steve as the alternate arrangement’s inspiration. White was impressed by the request, but his version of the song remained unused on Lemonade.
DJ Khaled's new single "Top Off" has arrived. The track features guests Beyoncé, JAY-Z, and Future, and will appear on the producer's eleventh studio album, Father of Asahd. Buy the song on iTunes or listen below!
DJ Khaled has announced a new song featuring JAY-Z, Beyoncé, and Future called “Top Off.” He writes that the song will be “available everywhere” this morning at 6 a.m. eastern. Watch his teaser video for the collaboration below. In the announcement, Beyoncé is notably billed as just “B.”
The newly released Documentary "Girls Tyme - Making a Child of Destiny (The Andretta Tillman Story)," shares never before seen interviews from key people who influenced Beyoncé and Destiny's Child on their rise to fame. The documentary includes clips of rare unseen performance footage of the Flawless star and the rest of her Girls Tyme crew.
Produced from largely previously unreleased footage and personal interviews, the documentary examines Andretta Tillman's life as the driving force in launching Queen Beyoncé and Destiny's Child's legendary careers, as well as many other Houstonian artists, who also rose to fame under Andretta's management.
"We felt an obligation to show the world the true impact of Andretta's irreplaceable contribution to the success of Queen Bey and her Destiny's Child band mates. We opened the vault of Andretta Tillman's estate to provide the viewer with an understanding that, what you see Beyoncé and Destiny's Child doing on stage today, was rooted in them through Andretta's irreplaceable influence and tutelage, from way back in the early 1990's as young ladies in Girls Tyme. Where they are today, is a direct result of the solid foundation Andretta Tillman taught them." cited Executive Producer of the documentary, Brian "Kenny" Moore (from whose book the documentary evolved).
"We at Dousic are delighted to have secured a partnership with Amazon to ensure the documentary reaches the masses. We are giving Beyoncé and Destiny's Child fans an up-close look at the excitement, distresses and sacrifices made to elevate the band to stardom, by revealing the hidden part of their story of Andretta's enormous contribution and sacrifice that has not been told, or has hitherto been omitted," said Michael Ferguson, Executive VP of Dousic Media Group.
The documentary features interviews with Gospel great Kathy Taylor, Original Girls Tyme/Destiny's Child members Nina and Niki Taylor. Former Co-manager Kenny Moore, Hip Hop Producer Cory Mo, Former Rap a Lot recording group Flajj, Destiny's Child first choreographer Harlon Bell, and members of Andretta Tillman's family.
The pair created one of the most memorable movie soundtracks ever for The Lion King 25 years ago.
And now Sir Elton John will be returning to the studio with theatre legend Tim Rice — as well as superstar Beyonce — for Disney’s live-action remake.
The Sun revealed last month that Bey had reached out to Elton to ask if they could work on the soundtrack together and now the Rocket Man has confirmed that they intend to collaborate on a new song for the eagerly anticipated movie.
In an exclusive interview, Elton told the Sun: “They need to have a new end credits song.
"There’s going to be four of our songs in the film, from the original: Can You Feel The Love Tonight? Hakuna Matata, I Just Can’t Wait To Be King and Circle of Life.
“And then there will be an end, closing song, and we’ve been speaking to Beyonce’s people and hopefully Tim and I and her can cook up something.
“That’s going out in 2019 as well. And it will be great to work with her. So we will see.”
Beyoncé has emerged as one of this year's Billboard Latin Music Awards nominees.

With his 70th birthday just around the corner, Andrew Lloyd Webber is letting all the memories flood back with a special retrospective release.
Barbra Streisand, Beyoncé, Lana Del Rey, Madonna, Michael Ball, Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman are just some of the big names who appear on Andrew Lloyd Webber Unmasked: The Platinum Collection, due out March 16 through UMe / Polydor.
One of the most successful theatrical-music composers of the modern era, Lloyd Webber's portfolio includes the celebrated musicals Sunset Boulevard, Cats, Aspects Of Love, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Starlight Express, The Phantom of The Opera, and Love Never Dies.
The new collection, available now to pre-order, is curated and overseen by Lloyd Webber to feature works from early in his career through to his most recent, School of Rock, and includes newly-recorded songs from Lana Del Rey ("You Must Love Me", Evita), Nicole Scherzinger ("Memory", Cats) and Gregory Porter ("Light at the End of the Tunnel", Starlight Express).
Unmasked: The Platinum Collection will be available in 2-CD or 4-CD editions, the latter containing a 40-page book containing in-depth notes on each song and an introduction from Lloyd Webber. Scherzinger’s version of “Memory” is available now as an instant grat track.
Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé's "Perfect" tops the Billboard Hot 100 for a fifth week. The song also takes over as the most-heard hit on U.S. radio, reaching No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart.
"Perfect," released on Atlantic Records -- first as a solo track by Sheeran on his album ÷ (Divide) -- spends a sixth week at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 109,000 downloads sold (down 34 percent) in the week ending Jan. 4, according to Nielsen Music.
The song also lifts 2-1 on the Radio Songs tally, up 7 percent to 139 million audience impressions in the week ending Jan. 7 (with radio playing both Sheeran's original solo version and the duet). Sheeran scores his second Radio Songs leader, following ÷ lead single "Shape of You," which reigned for 12 weeks beginning last Feb. 25.
Beyoncé adds her sixth solo Radio Songs No. 1 and first in nearly nine years. Her previous toppers: "Crazy in Love," featuring JAY-Z (eight weeks, 2003); "Baby Boy," featuring Sean Paul (nine, 2003); "Check on It," featuring Slim Thug (three, 2006); "Irreplaceable" (11, 2006-97); and "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" (five, 2009). Beyoncé first ruled Radio Songs as a member of Destiny's Child with four singles (consecutively) in 2000-01: "Say My Name," "Jumpin', Jumpin'," "Independent Women Part 1" and "Survivor."
On Streaming Songs, which "Perfect" led for a week, the song slips 2-4 with 36.4 million U.S. streams (down 4 percent) in the week ending Jan. 4.
MeLo-X (whose real name is Sean Rhoden) is a musician, D.J. and multimedia artist with tastemaking cred in hip-hop and the fine arts. He has collaborated with Beyoncé, including on her 2014 On the Run Tour with Jay Z. His photographs and films have been displayed at the Sean Kelly Gallery in Chelsea.
After honing his D.J. skills with amateur mixtapes, MeLo-X was hired in 2009 to be tour D.J. for Theophilus London. At the same time, he began making unauthorized remixes of albums, which he would interpret with his ambient and serrated electronic sound. His remix of Beyoncé’s 2014 album, which he called “Yoncé-X,” caught the pop star’s attention; she asked him to collaborate on her next tour. “She liked how I deconstructed the music and the way that I time-stretched her voice, pitched things down,” Melo-X said.
His collaboration with Beyoncé continues. He can’t say much, but he is working on behind-the-scenes clips and short films for Beyoncé’s YouTube channel and website. “Beyoncé is god to many,” he said. “Maybe to me, too, but I won’t let her know.”
Coldplay collaborations can be a shocker (see: “Lost” featuring Jay Z and the Chris Martin and Kanye West duet "Champion"). But the four-piece British rock group are flipping the script for their forthcoming farewell album, A Head Full of Dreams.
Frontman Chris Martin recently opened up to The Wall Street Journal about the group’s track featuring Beyonce called “Hymn on the Weekend,” a song that was born out of his desire to create a club track.
“The original kernel was that I was listening to Flo Rida or something, and I thought, it’s such a shame that Coldplay could never have one of those late-night club songs, like “Turn Down for What.” What would we call it if we had one?,” said Martin.
“I thought I’d like to have a song called 'Drinks on Me' where you sit on the side of a club and buy everyone drinks because you’re so f---ing cool," he continued. "I was chuckling about that, when this melody came -- 'drinks on me, drinks on me' -- then the rest of the song came out. I presented it to the rest of the band and they said, 'We love this song, but there’s no way you can sing "drinks on me."' So that changed into 'drink from me' and the idea of having an angelic person in your life. Then that turned into asking Beyonce to sing on it.” Read more...

Producer Deputy is etching both his name and sound into the minds of the masses – thanks largely to the commercial and Pop cultural success of Rihanna‘s ‘Bitch Better Have My Money.’
Together with songwriter Bibi, the Roc Nation talent crafted the hit on everyone’s lips – and is gearing up to bake even more blazing numbers for RiRi.
Speaking to That Grape Juice while in London recently, the rising star relived his journey and revealed that he’s also worked on new music for Beyonce and Alicia Keys.
Who else are you working with at the moment— here in London and home in the US?
Deputy: Out here, I’m working with the artist Ray right now. Met with Dizzee Rascal earlier during the visit. Tinie Tempah, Nick Brewer.
Over in the US—Zendaya, Keke Palmer, Beyonce, and Alicia Keys.
So, you’re not going to say Beyonce’s name and we’re not going to kind of hone in on that. Tell us a little bit about what it’s been like working with her?
Deputy: I actually don’t know. I did a record, and for the people who heard it, thought it was really a dope Beyonce record—so, we got it over to her and she liked it.
The whole ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ experience has opened a lot of doors. It’s also taught me to not overthink things anymore. You know, once I do the record and I decide to just leave it alone and just let things happen, right? And then if they happen, they happen, and if they don’t, I just keep it moving—work on to the next project. Read more...
