Beyonce is really throwing everything she can at the wall for her big comeback and hoping that something sticks. Anything this bitch can think of, she’s doing. A HBO documentary, Super Bowl performance, slutty magazine covers, soft drink endorsements, and now to top it all off, she’s temporarily reuniting with Destiny’s Child. Bey will apparently be joined by her bandmates on stage at the Super Bowl for a publicity-grabbing performance of the group’s hits. It’s sad that she only uses Destiny’s Child when it’s beneficial to her, yet was happy to let the group rot for the past decade while her solo career was fire while Michelle and Kelly were one flop away from collecting welfare cheques.
The Super Bowl performance is also being used to plug some new budget DC compilation called Love Songs, which comes with a “new” Pharrell Williams-produced track called “Nuclear”. It’s being billed as a new Destiny’s Child recording, but I’m betting that it’s probably a Destiny Fulfilled leftover that’s received a bit of a touch up for 2013.
“Nuclear” is a relatively hookless number which sees the girls cooing softly over a moody breakbeat, with flourishes of ’90s synths house synths here and there. It certainly screams “BONUS TRACK!” rather than “COMEBACK SINGLE!”, and won’t be sending them back to the top of the charts any time soon. I personally like it, but many others won’t.
But hey, at least it’s better than “Run the World”, right?
