Love Songs

Not to turn into Perez Hilton or anything, but the same day we get the news that Justin Timberlake, another pop star who actually puts out great music, is releasing new material, Beyonce announced on facebook that Destiny's Child have recorded their first original song in eight years and Pharrell produced it. The song will appear on Love Songs, the upcoming Destiny's Child compilation which is due out on January 29 via Sony Legacy and can be pre-ordered now. The tracklist is below.

In related news, Beyonce, who is about to perform at the Super Bowl on February 3, but not until after she sings the National Anthem at President Obama's inauguration ceremony on January 21, said in an interview with GQ that she'll have her new album out "as early as April" and will go on a world tour in support of it. The album may or may not include her rumored sequel to her collaboration with Lady Gaga, "Telephone." (And that song may or may not also feature Azealia Banks.)

The album will follow 2011's 4, much of which saw Beyonce stripping back her sound and pulling more from '70s soul than contemporary R&B, but it also contained "Countdown," which is up there as one of Beyonce's greatest pop singles, and just one of the greatest pop singles of recent years in general.

The video for "Countdown" and the video for Destiny's Child's "Survivor" below...

3:34, you proved a point to all of us with your copy & pasting job.

You really did.

This is seriously ridiculous. If I wanted to look up watered down Top 40 bullshit, I would just go on Perez Hilton's website.

Hey, Brooklyn Vegan - I would say 99.8% of your readers couldn't give 2 hairy pricks about this post. Let's make this disappear & act like it never happened.

Nothing like reading a D.R.I. post on the same page as a Destiny Child's write up.

A good pop act, but this isn't really the time or the place, BV. Poor taste. We are all offended.

I've read BV for 5 years, and the diversity is what makes it a good blog. I'm guessing there's a decent overlap between all the people freaking out and all the newfound republican readers. At least, the homophobic comments in the Timberlake post certainly suggest so.

4:42 - you're an idiot.

And, Brooklyn Vegan -- you should be ashamed of yourself for posting such blasphemy.

This shit is an insult.
