Destiny's Child's New Albums Will Arrive This Year, Mathew Knowles Says
Destiny's Child fans are getting an early Christmas present this year in the form of two new albums. The projects, which feature the singing trio of Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and Beyonce, will debut come November, according to the latter's father Mathew Knowles.
In an interview with The Huffington Post Black Voices, Bey's dad, who heads Music World Entertainment, revealed the news while speaking about his company's plans for success in the years to come.
"At Music World, we got to shift our direction and certainly stay in music," Mathew Knowles states. "We've grown our Music World Gospel to the fifth largest Gospel label in America. But again, even for the label, we got to partner up. It's similar to what's happening in corporate America back in the '80s.
"You saw a lot of mergers and acquisitions. We have to be smart in who we can partner with to do it better. We still have our joint venture with Sony and in November we're putting out two Destiny's Child catalog records with new material. So we're going to start doing strategic things like that."
The forthcoming albums from the girl group are set to feature "all released material with some previously unreleased material." The proposed LPs will be a follow-up to the group's final album, 2004's Destiny Fulfilled and the compilation of their top songs, 2005's #1's. In June 2005, Destiny's Child announced they were officially parting ways as a group.
