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?
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.
