Rumors Stir Again That A Destiny's Child Reunion Album Is On The Way, Label Denies It

​ ​ ​ ​

Word has it Beyonce's record label isn't feeling her new album to the point they want to throw an emergency Destiny's Child Reunion album in the works to balance how badly they believe she's going to flop.  But what's her label really saying?

 

Deets inside....

The NY Post is reporting that Beyonce's label is so scared her new 4 album is going to bomb, that they are already scraping together a Destiny's Child album to keep Beyonce and her brand at the top.  Supposedly, Columbia Records asked her to return to the studio to record new tracks to be added to the album before it's release, and she refused. So now they're supposedly looking to a comeback reunion album with Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland to off-set what they believe will be a bomb.

"They're very nervous about Beyoncé's new record," an industry insider told us. "It doesn't have the hit songs that her fans are used to. They asked her to make changes, but she said no."

Bracing for the worst, Columbia suits are strategizing in case of slower sales and have had "quiet discussions" about the reunion of Destiny's Child.

"Beyoncé's career has stalled a bit," a source told us. "Columbia seems to think they can get some mileage out of a comeback record with all of the girls." Another source tells us Destiny's Child could start recording together as early as October, with a suggested album title "Family Reunion."
 

A Post source said, "[Kelly] has her own solo career now, why would she want to be singing back up for Beyoncé?"

And Columbia Records denies all this saying:

"All I know is that the record came in . . . Nothing was ever discussed to change it." Beyoncé's rep said, "All of this is completely untrue. All of it." Rowland's rep didn't get back to us.

Time will tell.....
 

Beyonce is set to appear on "Piers Morgan Tonight" in a one hour interview the day before her album release, June 27th, on CNN.

I wouldn't necessarily call

I wouldn't necessarily call myself a Beyonce fan, but the statement, "Beyoncé's career has stalled a bit," seems to be over the top. She has to be one of the most overexposed artists out there. If the album flops, it won't be because her career has fallen off--she just did a project that broke from her norm. That's what true artists do. Putting out similar music every year gets old( and too many artists do that). Maxwell's second album "Embrya" tanked... but it helped him grow to where he is, as an entertainer, today. If sales suffer, hey, that's a part of the game.

totally agree with this

totally agree with this statement beyonce is still a superstar and she is allowed to do something different that is what artist do and its not always popular

Exactly. Her label is in

Exactly. Her label is in panic mode and they need to just allow the project to come out and stand behind their artist. I not a "fan" per se, but I like what I've heard from her and she is definaetly talented. Maybe she'll draw a broader fan base from this.

I've listened to alot of the

I've listened to alot of the songs on 4. I think her voice sounds amazing. I just think that she has to mix up tempo songs with fast pace songs. Don't just do all slow songs or all club songs. Mix it up for a good listen like dangerously in love. but the songs are beautiful and there are few in her league right now

Don't do it. It's a step

Don't do it. It's a step backwards for Kelly and Michelle. Then once its done, she'll go on to shine while they fade into the woodwork once again.

I agree with you, i do think

I agree with you, i do think Beyonce is a good entertainer, but usually you don't instantly like her music, it seems like she relies on radios and her videos to make it a hit.

BEY HAS REACHED HER PEAK

BEY HAS REACHED HER PEAK !JUST LIKE OTHER Superstars BEFORE HER Janet,Madonna,Michael etc...IT'S ALMOST TIME FOR HER TO Bow out gracefully,SHE NEEDS TO FOCUS ON GETTING PREGNANT SHES ALMOST 30,JAY GOING ON 50. BEY NEEDS TO STOP BEING SELFISH AND Self Absorbed,SHE IS ALREADY AN ICON,THE ONLY WAY TO GO NOW IS DOWN,BEY NEEDS TO STOP WHILE SHES AHEAD.

she went a different route

she went a different route with Run the World. I didn't like it at first, then the video sold me. I think that Best Thing I Never Had will blow up. It's a great song! It's in the same realm as Irreplaceable. I think people will vibe to it. I heard a few other songs and they aren't grabbing me just yet. Time will tell.

well i heard the entire album

well i heard the entire album on music @aol.com or something like that....i dont know much about how the industry works but i thought the first single was to set the tone for the rest of the album....none of the songs on there sound anything like run the world...to me its all over the place and usually there are a song or two that jumps out at me where im like damn i cant wait to buy that single and see the video (for any artist not just bey) but that didnt happen for me...maybe when a song is crammed in my ear from being played a million times i would like it but so far im not sold.....im not the type to buy an album based on who it is but by the music along...sorry bey but i wont be buiying this one....but i have no doubt the album will do well!!!

for people saying that she

for people saying that she will sell because she is beyonce, Not true. The masses are not checking for her this time around as evident with the itunes and chart performances of her singles. Without any hit singles, she will have a decent first week because all of her fans will get it, but the album will fall off quickly. Which is ok in my book...she's done A LOT...go have Jay some babies...:)

The entire unfinished ablum

The entire unfinished ablum leaked and people like it. and does anyone think she would go back to DC when she refuses to re-record a song. Thats like asking for a dollar, she say's no, and you turn around and ask for 100$. That makes no sense. The CD will do fine. Also Kelly is finally on top with a hit song and a good show. You think she wants to come back to be Bey's back up? Some "sources" sound iek they making ish up.

Umm, Beyonce might need to rehire Papa Knowles. This CD and the production is turning out to be a disaster.

IMO, Beyonce has nothing to

IMO, Beyonce has nothing to prove to anyone. She took a different route with her album & that is what I like to see artists do. Who wants to hear the same ol same ol? She is an amazing performer and a great vocalist. I believe her album will sell like hot cakes. And I, for one, will be in line awaiting my copy. People have so much to say about her b/c no one else can do what she can. I'm not a Bey fan like I used to be, but I love music so much that I can't wait to see what she's put together.

Rihanna is the current IT

Rihanna is the current IT girl & Lady GaGa as well (for the pop market). No one needs to steal her shine ... she has not been THE IT girl for years. This is not a snub to her either - just how the industry goes - ask Ashanti or any of the other it girls of yesteryear ...

DC's last album was not that

DC's last album was not that big of hit so not sure why this is in the cards. Even tho Kelly got more mic time, I doubt that she would want to do it now that here solo career is taking off.

It's sad how people hate on

It's sad how people hate on Beyonce! Her whole album is really nice. You can tell that she as grown a lot with this album. Also, Beyonce is letting people know that she is the the puppet ran by the record label executives. She is releasing music she wants to release! I do not think 4 will flop at all, despite the 4 being leaked.

A lot of people want Bey's

A lot of people want Bey's album to flop because they want someone else to shine now, so they are starting rumors to get people to not want to buy the album. Mostly, her fans have recieved the album really well. Bey's career has not stalled. She's got the billboard millenium award, She's headlining Glatonsbury, she is staring in the new Clint Eastwood movie, being asked to join the academy, co producing a broadway musical, new fragrance and the list goes on. This is foolishness and I wish her the best.
People trip me out 's picture

well lets see here as i see

well lets see here as i see it Beyonce is palyed out an dshe looks druggrd out a diva in her past her prime to me and even then she was overrated. she can dance her singing is haky and if this first single is any indication of where her career is headed then lets just say the reunion is not that far fetched even though who wants to see them again Beyonce is SahsFirece Aka Youngs Sex Slave he controls her so she really is a rocnation artsit managed by "Young" AkA JayZ is her husband she wack and ppl r just under her spell

LMAO @ the rampant dumb

LMAO @ the rampant dumb rumors. The tabloids must be working overtime, trying to come at her from different angles. first it was, there was an emergency meeting between Beyonce and record label to revamp the album and postpone the album release.Well that turned out to be a lie, and the album release is still scheduled to be released on June 28th. Now they trying another angle with this tired rumor of destiny's child reunion, to supposedly save Beyonce's career. I mean lets use some common sense here people. Meanwhile Beyonce busy with her sold out promo tour dates. So somehow(according the non-existing source), kelly and michella are simply gonna halt their careers just for a quick destiny's child album,LOL. Use some common sense people. Beyonce is gonna do fine, her album sales isn't dependent on a quick #1 hit single(bday prove that)

She hasn't promoted? She was

She hasn't promoted? She was already on Piers Morgan for that one song. She was on the most watched show in America, Ameerican Idol twice! She premiered her video on American Idol and sang her other song on the finale which was watched by so many people I can't even say. Other artists would cry for such promotion. Beyonce promotes, don't ever use that as an excuse. Besides all black blogs especially this one promote her more than any other singer so just stop. Also how is Best Thing I never had climbing the charts? 33 #1 songs? on what chart?

I know for a FACT this this

I know for a FACT this this story was leaked by people inside of Sony because Jay-Z has taken over this project. This is just bitterness from Sony trying to lower expectations from a very SOLID Album. Beyonce took a different turn on this CD because she's in a different place in her life. I love the transition. Musically she's not in the "Sasha Fierce" mood or space. New York Magazine said it best! "There’s nothing dull or tame about this newly settled mood; there are actually a great number of things to love about it. Ballads have not always been Beyoncé’s strong suit, but the string here is charming: There are giddy, girlish tunes about being with the one you love; mopey, spaced-out songs about not being with the one you love; resigned heartbreakers about realizing exactly how much power the ones you love can turn out to hold over you" Work it B! This is a GREAT CD. And this TRASH about Kelly not wanting to do a new DC record is BULL! All of them are under contract to complete this final DC record and they ALL will be present. This "source" is from Sony again trying to throw HATE at the Queen and Jay-Z and it's not going to WORK. Page 6 is very irresponsible with it's NASTY unnamed "sources" don't believe the LIES! #TEAMBEYONCE!

I don't know how you know

I don't know how you know this, but your so correct..It's funny they wanted her to do more urbanish, cuts... and correct. they do have one more lp to put out.. Thing is. It's set under contract until 2015... Every1 can hush also cause TY has already insured me, that this is her LAST LP for a while. So I assume she will go have kids and come back during the close period of 2014 intime for the DC final album. after all they will each be in the early 30's.. plus it will be gearing towards thier 20 years in the buzz. PROMOTION. she dont Need TV promotion to sell albums. she has mastered that already..

She knows because she's in the industry as I have been saying all along. She trolls YBF to try to sway public opinion of the artist she works for. Nobody in their right mind would ride so hard for an artist unless they were a stalker or getting paid to do it.
