Though there’s still no word on that reunion tour nor the new music we had hoped for, we are happy to report that Destiny’s Child will be returning to the charts this October with a finally confirmed the release of their greatest hits collection called Playlist. The 14-track album will account for the many iterations of Destiny’s Child — Beyonce, LaTavia, Kelly, LeToya and Michelle each being represented at some point — and is set to arrive on October 8th, just in time to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of their first No. 1 hit, “No, No, No Part 2.”
Earlier this year Beyonce’s father and the group’s manager, Mathew Knowles, told the Huffington Post that he is working to release two catalog albums this fall, along with some previously unreleased material. Playlist doesn’t include anything new, and though we might also have included “Apple Pie A La Mode,” “Dangerously In Love,” or “Confessions,” they seem to have otherwise made sure that all the hits (“Bills, Bills, Bills” to “Soldier”) and fan favorites (“Illusion” t0 “So Good”) are covered. It’s been seven years since the girls released Destiny Fulfilled and then went each their own way, but we’ve never stopped saying their name or wishing for a comeback. Until then, this new Playlist should do!
