Following in the footsteps of David Bowie and Justin Timberlake in releasing new music after and extended hiatus are legendary R&B girl group Destiny’s Child (remember them? – they were Beyonce’s old band before she became uber-famous). A new recording titled ‘Nuclear’ will be included on the upcoming Love Songs compilation which pulls together the girls’ best love songs (as the title would suggest) when it is released on January 29th.  ‘Nuclear’ will mark the first new music that we have heard from the group in over 8 years.

Beyonce broke news of the new recording on her website, and one could only hope that 2013 could see a full Destiny’s Child reunion even if just as part of the Super Bowl half-time show that Beyonce is headlining (I will take credit for starting this rumour, thank you very much!).

To mark this auspicious occasion, we suggest that you turn this song on and do your best Bootylicious dance now.
