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”

Wisin ft. Ozuna, “Escapate Conmigo”

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.
The global icon scored seven nods, thanks to "Mi Gente," her hit collaboration with Latin star J Balvin:

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.

We take music videos for granted. In about 35 years, they’ve gone from an alleged scourge on the musical imagination to a form of oxygen. Every so often, one comes along that touches a nerve or causes a scandal. Back in February, on the eve of the Super Bowl, “Formation” stopped the nation. It was another Beyoncé sneak attack, but also a statement piece and a work of art. And for a month, the intent of its imagery — Beyoncé atop a sinking New Orleans Police Department cruiser; the witchiness of her wide-brimmed hat and her seemingly spiritually possessed head bob on the porch of a manse; a young black boy dancing before a phalanx of militarized cops — was deconstructed, debated and defended.
This was Beyoncé, of course. But it was also Melina Matsoukas, who directed “Formation.” These are edited excerpts from The New York Times' conversation with her.
At what point did you get involved with “Formation”?
Right after I came back from Cuba last year, after the family vacation. Beyoncé was performing at the Super Bowl, so she wanted this to come out right before that, obviously, to set up her performance. She wanted to shoot in two weeks. And because it was also my birthday, I probably didn’t even really think about it for a week. Read more...
“The Best Is Yet to Come” for Tony Bennett, who at 90 years old is showing no signs of slowing down.
“There’s still a lot I’d like to do,” the iconic crooner tells PEOPLE.
The past two years, Bennett has won the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album trophy at the Grammys, this year for Cheek to Cheek, his collection of jazz duets with longtime pal Lady Gaga — and he insists there’s more classics where that came from.
“I’d love to do a second album with Lady Gaga,” he says. “She was performing at a benefit the first time I met her. I told her backstage, ‘You were terrific! I’d love to do an album with you someday.’ She said, ‘Let’s do it!’ Boom! We get along great. We’ve been close ever since.”
Indeed, Gaga — as well as A-listers including Elton John, Michael Bublé and Stevie Wonder — will honor the musician and painter during Tony Bennett Celebrates 90, a two-hour music and comedy special airing at 9 p.m. ET on NBC, Dec. 20.
And Gaga isn’t the only diva Bennett has plans to collaborate with — he and Queen Bey may have something in the works.
“Beyoncé. She’s thinking of something to do with me,” the singer adds with a laugh. “We met at a benefit, and she said, ‘I’ve got an idea that we should do something together.’ She didn’t tell me what it was yet, so we’ll see what happens!”
The nominees for the 59th Grammy Awards were announced this morning (Dec. 6), with last year's Best New Artist winner Meghan Trainor unveiling the contestants for the marquee categories live on CBS. The field is led by Beyoncé with 9 nominations, followed by similarly huge stars Drake, Rihanna and Kanye West (8 each). The awards show will air live from Los Angeles' Staples Center on February 12th. Check all of Beyonce's nominations below!

Join others on Tuesday for a viewing of Beyoncé’s "Lemonade" video, followed by an audience discussion of the issues this unique video album addresses.
The screening and conversation are presented in conjunction with Global Voices for Social Justice: Art as Activism, a current exhibition at New Bedford Art Museum/ArtWorks! curated by the New Bedford Historical Society, the event is free and open to the public and slated to run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
New Bedford Art Museum / ArtWorks! is located at 608 Pleasant Street, New Bedford, MA 02740. Winter hours are noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Friday-Sunday and noon to 9 p.m. Thursdays.
It looks like Beyonce is rolling out “All Night” as the fourth US single from Lemonade. The cover art surfaced online today (here) and the Diplo-produced ballad is being added to rhythmic radio on December 6 according to All Access.
Somewhat amusingly, “All Night” is already a top 40 hit. The song debuted at number 38 on the Billboard Hot 100 after the release of Lemonade and has charted in Canada, France, UK and Australia among other countries. It could soar even higher if it gets a little love from pop radio — something “Formation,” “Sorry” and “Hold Up” failed to achieve.
This year CAMERIMAGE Festival, The International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography which takes place in Bydgoszcz, Poland, will present two remarkable films connected with the music video creativity.
The first is Beyoncé’s “LEMONADE”, the visual accompaniment to her 12-track sixth studio album and a portrayal of every woman’s journey of self-knowledge and healing.
The screening will tak place on November 13 at 12:15 p.m. an will be followed by a Q&A meeting with DPs Chayse Irvin and Malik Sayeed.
BeyonceOnline.org will be in attendance so you can expect a coverage of the event!
Additionally, Beyonce's "Formation" is nominated for Best Music Video and Best Cinematography in a Music Video. The winners will be announced during the Festival's Closing Ceremony on Saturday, November 21.
