SOURCE: BEYONCE IS IN TALKS WITH KELLY ROWLAND & MICHELLE WILLIAMS ABOUT DC REUNION – (08/06/2019)
Rumor has it that Destiny’s Child may be reuniting once again! On the heels of the 20th anniversary of their second album The Writing’s On The Wall, The Sun reported that the trio is in talks of reuniting next year — the 20th anniversary of Michelle Williams joining the group.
The source said,“Beyonce has been desperate to get the girls back together with her in the studio and she can’t think of a better time than 2020, when they will be marking two decades as one of the world’s biggest all-female groups. She saw the success of the Spice Girls tour and wants to replicate that — but far bigger and better.”
The source added, “Beyonce has been meeting with Kelly and Michelle and discussing what they can do. It’s early days but they want to record new music and put it out alongside some of their biggest hits. Then they want to do a tour which will be short enough for them to fit it into their schedules, but big enough to make sure all their fans can make a date to see them.”
Meanwhile, Kelly recently said that a DC reunion ain’t happening. She said in an interview, “We haven’t talked about it. It hasn’t been on our radar. Everybody’s, like, basically doing their own projects right now and we’re just supporting each other.”
LIL NAS X EXTENDS HIS BILLBOARD HOT 100 RECORD TO 18TH WEEK; COVERS GQ HYPE – (08/06/2019)
Lil Nas X’s smash hit song “Old Town Road” has earned an 18th week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, extending his record of the most weeks spent on top of the chart.
The 20-year-old rapper, who collaborated with Billy Ray Cyrus on the song, recently broke the 16-week record set by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men with their song “One Sweet Day.” Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber tied the record with their song “Despacito,” but no song had dethroned the track until now.
Meanwhile, Lil Nas X, real name Montero Hill, appears on the cover of British GQ Hype this month, and spoke to the magazine about what he’s doing after “Old Town Road” and what people have been saying to him since he came out as a gay man.
Although he has felt a little overwhelmed at “having to be a voice” as a gay black man, Lil Nas is proud that his decision to come out has helped other young homosexual men in his community. He said, “Live your life to its fullest potential and don’t really care too much about what other people think of you. I used to say that cliché, but I never really lived by it, until now. Since I came out, people have been coming up to me saying, ‘You’re making a way for us’.”
“I’m still in the first stage of figuring out who I am,” he added. “I don’t know what kind of music I’ll be making ten years from now. I want to do everything and I’m still learning how I work. But the one thing I’ll always know is that people don’t know what they want until they get it. They didn’t know they wanted a song about taking a horse to the old town road in 2019. But they did.”
This time last year, Lil Nas had just finished high school and was running a Nicki Minaj fan account as well as jumping from various jobs at theme parks to chicken fast food chains and he had no idea what his future entailed. Everything changed when his song ‘Old Town Road’ became a huge global hit after it was released last December and he admits he still finds it crazy to think so many people love his track. He said: “I’m happy it’s become a part of so many people’s lives. Kids are going to grow up with that song and play it to remember these times, which makes me feel amazing. It’d never have made it out there without the meme culture that embraced it.”
Lil Nas promoted the track himself with the use of videos, images, and memes on social media and it became a viral sensation as well as a chart hit and he recorded a number of “Old Town Road” remixes of “Old Town Road.”
