Beyonce Expects Destiny’s Child Members’ Solo Albums To Be Diverse
Destiny’s Child singers Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams recently announced that they are putting the group’s career on hold temporarily as they head out as “independent women” to purse their own respective solo careers.
Knowles recently explained what kind of solo albums fans can expect from each of the ladies. “I know Michelle has always wanted to do a gospel record, Kelly has always wanted to do an alternative record, and I always wanted to do an old-school soul record, so now we can do that,” she said.
Knowles added that even though Destiny’s Child will be on hiatus for a while, the group will still remain the ladies’ first priority. “I know Destiny’s Child. We’ve put out four records in four years, and I know we need a break,” she explained. “We’ve worked really, really hard. During the break, all the things that we’ve always wanted to do individually, we’ll do. The great thing about Destiny’s Child is so much support in the group, and everything that we do we talk about and we make sure that it fits Destiny’s Child’s agenda–that’s our very first priority.”
Meanwhile, Destiny’s Child’s holiday album, Eight Days Of Christmas, was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association Of America on December 3.
