As if we weren't already spinning from the news that David Bowie was back, Beyonce's recent tweet means that we'll be getting music from possibly the finest pop groups ever to stride the planet. The superstar broke the news on her site with a simple message: "I am so proud to announce the first original Destiny's Child music in eight years! - Beyoncé". Additionally there was a link to pre-order the new material from Amazon, with the price suggesting that this could be an entire album of new songs. The news means that both Knowles and her husband Jay Z could have new music out this month, with speculation mounting that a new Justin Timberlake track will be revealed today (January 10, 2013) featuring Hova.
This is perhaps more exciting though; as Destiny's Child, Beyonce - alongside Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams - were one of the most successful pop acts going in the first half of the last decade. Selling more than 50 million records worldwide, the trio were known for tracks like 'Say My Name', 'Independent Woman' and 'Bootylicious'. Though Knowles and Rowland in particular have gone on to solo success, it's been new Destiny's Child material that fans have always been hankering for. The group's last album was Destiny Fulfilled, a number two US- charting release which came out in 2004.
