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."
