Where my Destiny’s Child fans at?!
Matthew Knowles seems to be cooking up a little treat for you’ll. In a recent interview with Huffington Post, Matthew Knowles chit chats about an upcoming Destiny’s Child compilation, which could see some unreleased material and possibly a reunion tour.
This year also marks the 20th anniversary of Music World. What are your plans to ensure that you’ll be successful for years to come?
We have to be realistic. At Music World we got to shift our direction and certainly stay in music. We’ve grown our Music World Gospel to the fifth largest Gospel label in America. But again, even for the label, we got to partner up. It’s similar to what’s happening in corporate America back in the ’80s. You saw a lot of mergers and acquisitions. We have to be smart in who we can partner with to do it better. We still have our joint venture with Sony and in November we’re putting out two Destiny’s Child catalog records with new material. So we’re going to start doing strategic things like that.
New material meaning previously unreleased tracks?
It’s all released material with some previously unreleased material.
Will there be a Destiny’s Child reunion tour to complement the two projects?
Not on the first release. It takes a year of planning to do these tours, but first it starts with the artist wanting to do it. And I think the ladies are still working happily in their solo careers. And I hope in the next five years that there is a reunion tour. I think it would be incredible. The hardest thing would be choosing which songs they’re going to do, because we would want to mix it up with solo hits and Destiny’s Child hits. We would have to throw away some number ones from off the set list [Laughs].
And it wouldn’t be an interview if Blue Ivy’s name wasn’t brought up.
Earlier this year your granddaughter, Blue Ivy, was born. How does it feel to have your first granddaughter in the family?
Blue Ivy is a special gift, so nothing but love. The same goes to Juelz, my grandson. So I’m a proud grandpapa.
I’d love to see a DC reunion!
