Beyoncé’s father might have been the first to say it, but don’t act like you don’t want it. Recently speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Mathew Knowles, Bey’s father and Destiny’s Child manager expressed that he’d like to see girl group reunite for “one last album.”

During the discussion, Knowles spoke of his desire for a possible reunion, saying that a return would be “a decision that the ladies would have to make.” and that he would “certainly support” it.
“I would certainly, certainly support that decision as I still manage Destiny’s Child. I would love to see that as well,” Knowles said.
“I think the fans will be just overjoyed, overwhelmed,” he told ET. “And hopefully they do one last time in their career. Hopefully they give us one last album. Who knows? You never know. You never say it can’t happen. Because this is entertainment. A lot of things can happen.”
For those concerned he’s been holding out hope all this time, don’t fret, the idea that Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle would have solo careers was always part of the plan. “We strategized five years out in the beginning of these ladies’ career, where they will be, which is why they did their solo projects. Doing Destiny’s Child, that was not happenstance or luck, that was strategy that each one of them will build their own unique following. And their own unique base, come back together, Destiny’s Child, go back out as solo artists. That was all strategy.”
Destiny’s Child, who split in 2006, last performed together in 2018 during Beyoncé’s iconic headlining Coachella set. For the mini-reunion, DC blessed us with three songs – “Lose My Breath,” “Say My Name,” and “Soldier.”
The odds of a Destiny’s Child reunion happening any time soon are unfortunately not in our favor, as Beyoncé is currently on her grand RENAISSANCE tour, and she’ll be booked and busy until at least late September.
