Beyoncé’s father Mathew Knowles wants Destiny Child to come back together for one final album. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, he expressed his wishes but ultimately says the decision is in Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams’ hands.
“It’s a decision that the ladies would have to make,” he said. “And I would certainly, certainly support that decision as I still manage Destiny’s Child. I would love to see that as well.”
He continued: “I think the fans will be just overjoyed, overwhelmed. 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.”
Knowles believes that fans would be ecstatic for a group comeback after their last album released was almost over 20 years ago.
Destiny Child was one of the most successful groups in the ’90s/early ’00s. The trio became the most-certified girl group of all time in 2020. Knowles never doubted the success of the group.
“If you don’t believe, who else is gonna believe? So it starts with you have to believe and you have to have the strategy,” he tells ET. “You have to have the talent. You have to have all the work ethics, being a visionary, all those things. There’s a lot of moving parts that bring success. The right record label, the right distribution, the right partners that we had like L’Oréal and Samsung. All those things is what brought about the success along with great songs.”
The members broke out into solo careers, which Knowles said was the plan all along.
“We strategized five years out in the beginning of these ladies’ career, where they will be, which is why they did their solo projects,” he adds. “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’s last album Destiny Fulfilled was released in 2004, which had hits such as “Survivor,” “Solider,” Cater 2 U,” “Independent Women,” and “Lose My Breath.”
