DESTINY’S CHILD HAD A MINI REUNION! Listen In On Beyoncé Saying She’s ‘Cooking Up New Music’ During Group Chat With Kelly & Michelle!

Michelle Williams let us all in on a “group chat” with her Destiny’s Child sisters Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. And while “checking in,” Bey revealed she’s “cooking up” new music. This comes on the heels of Mama Tina Knowles-Lawson spilling tea about her daughters new projects.

More inside!

 

We love a good Destinys Child reunion around these parts.

Singer (and now author) Michelle Williams called up her Destiny’s Child sisters, Beyoncé & Kelly Rowland, to “check in” before the release of her new book titled, “Checking In.” Sharing a phone conversation with the ladies, Michelle gave fans an intimate look at the sisterhood between the DC ladies – years after they stopped performing together.

While chatting and kiki’n it up, new mom again Kelly Rowland (picture above holding her second son Noah) was whipping up a soup in the kitchen. Mrs. Carter chimed in that she’s also cooking up something….musically!

“I’m cooking some music. That’s Chef Boyardee and Chef Boy-Kelly,” she joked.

Take a listen below:

If you’ve been keeping up with the Knowles family then you already know Mama Tina Knowles-Lawson spilled tea last week that both Bey and Solange were working on new projects. Catch up HERE in case you missed. 

We’d also like to note that Tina mentioned all THREE of her daughters working on new projects, so either Kelly is working on something solo or the ladies may come together in some form of fashion musically. We shall see. Listen, if they decide to end up doing a Destiny’s Child Reunion Tour, we’ve already made a list of requests we’d appreciate, which you can check out HERE.

During their conversation, talked about mental health and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic had on their lives as well as the importance of staying in touch with family and friends.

”My Bro @richpaul and myself got the brothers together for an intimate, special ‘TACO TUESDAY’ on a MONDAY (lol) in honor of the BEST new TEQUILA by our bro @kingjames !! @lobos1707,” Lenny wrote on social media. “Only we’re ignorant enough to have a Taco Tuesday on a Monday. Thank You @mrserinharris for always executing the best events.”

Everyone mixed and mingled during the outdoor celebration, enough star power in one room for everyone to wish they were a fly on the wall to get the inside scoop on everything they chopped it up about.

And yes, fine a** MBJ and sexy a** DAMSON were in the same space to tequila toast with everyone — OUR OVARIES! Sheesh.

”Anyone that knows me, knows the best way to get me out of the house is good people, great fun, and (yup) FOOD!,” Kelly Rowland captioned. “And we got the call & joined @richpaul & @kingjames to celebrate the release of their new tequila @lobos1707 (P.S. it was so smooth) THIS WAS THE BEST TACO TUESDAY(on a Monday, lol) I’ve been to in YEARS!! Thank you to them and the whole @lobos1707 team for having us! I am straight jacking this idea! The churros were the sweetest touch! Shout Out to: @mrserinharris & @kodaklens”

Right after the Lobos event, LeBron and the Lakers went up against Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors. And guess what? They secured their playoff spot. The Lakers just slid by the Warriors, 103-100.

For their first playoff game, the Lakers will go up against the Phoenix Suns this Sunday.

‘BLACK IS KING’ IS HERE: Beyoncé Elevates The Visual Album Bar To A Level Only She Can Reach + Drops ‘Already’ Video

 

Beyoncé’s Black Is King visual album is here and we’re all shooketh to highest level of shook! The Queen gifted us all with a masterpiece that’ll be on repeat during the coming days. And a fashion feast that gave us bawdy and GOALS.  Catch the vibes inside…

 

Beyoncé dropped her Black Is King visual album as promised and it’s EVERY.THING.

Every couple of years, Bey raises the bar for the visual album.

Let’s not forget, Bey’s first real visual album was her sophomore album B’Day. It was the first time she released full-blown music videos for every single track. Then, she stopped the world when she unexpectedly released her 2013 self-titled album, Beyoncé, which def changed the game. Then, she snatched our wigs with her 206 visual album LEMONADE.

It’s 2020 and Mrs. Carter did NOT disappoint with her Black Is King visual album, which was a year in the making. Bey just raised the visual album bar even higher, reaching a level only she can reach. And we STAN.

Black Is King reimagines the lessons of Disney’s The Lion King for today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns. The visual album was shot all across the world, from Bey’s backyard to Ghana, Johannesburg, Belgium and the Grand Canyon.

Before unleashing her masterpiece, the Grammy Award winning singer spoke with “Good Morning America" about her new film via video conference.

“I worked with a diverse group of very gifted directors and actors and creatives from all over the world to reimagine the story of The Lion King,” she said. “The narrative unfolds through music videos, fashion, dance, beautiful natural settings, and raw new talent.”

“It was truly a journey to bring this film to life and my hope for this film is that it shifts the global perception of the word Black, which has always meant inspiration and love and strength and beauty to me,” she continued. ‘Black Is King’ means Black is regal and rich in history, in purpose, and in lineage.”

The 90-minute film draws from last year’s Lion King: The Gift album. Kwasi Fordjour, who is the creative director of Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment, co-directed.

Once Black Is King hit Disney+, the BeyHive was locked in to see what Mrs. Carter cooked up for them. Needless to say, it was more than what they expected:

What Beyonce’ has done is amazing. How many times were black people, my people, stripped of their Beauty? Ridiculed for our looks? Classified as less than??

I tip my hat off to Beyoncé for using “Mbube” the ORIGINAL version of “The Lion Sings Tonight,” a song written by a South African man named Solomon Linda who died a pauper, his song sold to the world. #BlackIsKing

Love seeing all the South African artists who were part of #BlackIsKing on the TL today promoting their work. Really cool. What Beyoncé did here is honestly groundbreaking. To more of this international collaboration type projects where everyone really does win.

Kelly Rowland Reveals How She Almost Went ‘Rich Broke’ Trying To Maintain A Luxe Lifestyle & Her Husband No Longer Being Her Manager

Kelly Rowland opens up like never before in an interview with her pastor about the trials and tribulations she has gone through in the music industry from Destiny’s Child to becoming a mother, wife and entrepreneur. She shares how she almost lost everything trying to maintain this luxe lifestyle. More inside…

Kelly Rowland. Mom. Wife. BOSS.

The Destiny’s Child singer basically grew up in the music industry and true fans have been right by her side along the rollercoaster ride of fame.

At one point in her life, she almost lost EVERYTHING trying to keep up a luxe lifestyle that she couldn’t afford. Oh? The Fabletics ambassador opened up to her pastor Erwin McManus – lead pastor of Mosaic in Los Angeles – and she revealed about how she almost went broke. It was the first time she talked about her financial troubles publicly.

”Even going through my own time where there was a lot of like… no one will believe this and it will actually be the first time I talk about it – where I almost lost everything because I was so busy trying to keep up. Whether it was the look, whether it was the wardrobe, whether it was the car, whether it was the place, you know what I mean? All that silliness. Rich broke!,” she said while laughing.

The imposisbly beautiful "COFFEE" singer said she chopped it up with one of her friends about her finances and her friend encouraged her to give during her financial storm. She wasn’t with it at first, but she eventually did it. Literally a week later, good things started happening to her.

“Grace! Ooo! Grace! It was grace. And it was so real,” she said.

Once she realized the more she gave, the more she received.

”The more I gave, I got back double,” she said.

Look at God!

#US I LOVE YOU UNTIL………The end of time! HAPPY ANNIVERSAY MY 1 P.S. can you tell he feels so comfortable in front of the camera.

These days, Kelly has new music (“COFFEE”) and she has been popping up in guest starring roles on “American Soul,” “L.A.’s Finest,” and more. A few years ago, Kelly’s husband, Tim Witherspoon, was managing career. Now, they’re just husband and wife.

”Well, actually now we’re just husband and wife,” she said when asked if Tim was still her manager. “We no longer work together. He is so talented, and he always pushes me to always be the best version of myself and I’m so grateful for him.”

Aww! That’s good they were able to figure out what wasn’t working and fix it.

Also in the interview, the "Motivation" singer talked about losing her confidence and gaining it back, losing her faith while she was in a toxic relationship, how she met her husband, tips on what women should look for in a husband, her favorite Bible verse, her passion for giving, feeling anxiety after she found out she was having a baby boy, going to therapy with her husband, and more.

Also, Little Titan even joined in on the conversation (at the 21-minute mark).

Kelly Rowland – Kelly lyrics

My skin is my cape, huh
My black is my bitch, huh
Natural face, huh
That’s how I wake up
No love for the fake ones
You get what you give, huh
Bills, bills, bills, been spent
Kelendria rich, huh?

Sa-saucy on ice, but this shit is sweet
Go another side, that you never seen
Ice on my (?), you watching me
I talk to God, my minutes are free (free)

Two double g’s, two double g
Cross the wall through [?]
Lil shit back then, I let that slide, ain’t get by me
All they trying to get is a act from me
And it’s all for the reach
Back-back up off of me, back up off of me
Rose petals at my feet

Kelly got bands, Kelly got a check
Kelly got wig, Kelly got deals
Kelly got class, Kelly got ass
Kelly’s got a man, Kelly pop tabs
Kelly got flex, Kelly got wheels
Kelly got drill, Kelly got a stash
Kelly got a house, big house on a hill
Kelly’s so blessed, thick, yes XL
Kelly ain’t-Kelly ain’t got no chill
Kelly don’t really give a fuck how you feel
Kelly ain’t humble no mo’ nigga
Kelly got a foot on your throat nigga
Kelly ain’t humble no mo’ nigga
Kelly got a foot on your throat nigga

Go Kelly go, go go Kelly go
Go Kelly go, go go Kelly

Cop that bag if it’s designer
I’m so rich that I ain’t buy it
Don’t get tired, I’m too wired
Light it up and get inspired
All my business, keep it private
You know bosses move in silence
And I ride it like it’s stolen
‘Cuz my name is Kelly Rowland, ah

Everyday I meet the quota
Bitch I really thought it was over
I’ll always be around, thought I told you
Back up off of me, back up off of me
Forget [?]

Kelly got bands, Kelly got a check
Kelly got wig, Kelly got deals
Kelly got class, Kelly got ass
