Destiny’s Child are back, and their army of celebrity fans are rejoicing. Just last week, Beyoncé, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland got fans feeling nostalgic when they dropped “Nuclear,” a new track off their upcoming compilation album.
“Oh my God, that is a dream come true,” fellow diva Jennifer Hudson told MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival, where she is promoting her new movie, the drama “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete.”
“I am the biggest Destiny’s Child — Beyoncé, Kelly, Michelle, all of them — fan in the world. I’m excited about it,” she said, visibly giddy with excitement. “I grew up with these ladies listening to their music. I’ve always been a fan, and now I’m blessed to know each of them. I’m happy for all of them and cannot wait to hear this album and I love the song ‘Nuclear.’ I get it. I love it.”
“Nuclear” was produced by Pharrell and co-written by Pharrell, Williams, James Fauntleroy and Lonny Bereal. The album is set to be released on January 29. It is their first album since 2004’s Destiny Fulfilled, and will be composed of songs recorded between 1997 and 2004, along with some of Destiny’s Child’s hit love songs, “Cater 2 U,” “Say My Name” and “Emotion.”
In the spirit of Hudson’s excitement for new music from Destiny’s Child, we can’t but also feel excited to see more of what Hudson is doing, particularly since she is working on her own new music with super producer RedOne. Acting-wise, the Oscar-winner has several film projects in the works in addition to “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete,” and did a guest stint on NBC’s “Smash” this season.
