Watch: A Dose of Old-School Destiny's Child
From 'Survivor' to 'Say My Name,' the girl group's most memorable videos.
Come Super Bowl Sunday, Destiny's Child will gets fans to "Jumpin', Jumpin'" all over again.
While Beyoncé will open the much-anticipated halftime show solo, rumor has it that the multi-Grammy winner will be joined by former bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for a Destiny’s Child reunion on stage in New Orleans, La.
Though Williams wouldn't confirm teaming up with the DC3 for the football finals, word on the street suggests Queen B has planned out a three-song set for the former chart-topping trio, including “Bills, Bills, Bills,” “Survivor” and spanking-new track “Nuclear."
So as the countdown to touchdown continues — and as Destiny's Child fans hold out hope for the gossip to prove true — Celebuzz is blasting back to the past. From the band's quartet beginnings to their 2000 reinvention as a trio, relive the girl group's best music videos.
"Survivor" Somewhere in the South Pacific, Destiny's Child washes up on a shore, wearing nothing but brightly-colored, curve-bearing rags. While little goes down in the video on a deserted island, no fan can ever forget the image of a soaking-wet Beyoncé seductively crawling on the sand, crooning to the camera how she's a "Survivor." Well, any girl that can transform some scraps of animal skins in a sexy getup is sure "gonna make it."
"Say My Name" Just after former bandmates LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson were unceremoniously dropped from Destiny's Child, this video debuted, featuring newly-minted members Farrah Franklin and Michelle Williams. But despite the band drama, the clip made a splash, showcasing the ladies striking poses in color-coded sets.
"Bills, Bills, Bills" In this clip, as Destiny's Child bemoans all the "good-for-nothin' type of brotha," the singers find strength in numbers among the other fed-up women getting glam in a beauty salon. Fun fact: the locale was chosen in tribute to Tina Knowles, Beyoncé's mother.
"Bootylicious" Are you ready for this jelly? 'Cause Destiny's Child thinks not. In the opening sequence, the bling-out trio strike poses, as they ask, "Can you handle this?" After an appearance from a guitar-strumming Stevie Nicks, the girl group breaks it down — wearing, what else, but bright, body-hugging hues — in dance routines that pay homage to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Though the singers were already lusted after, this sex-soaked video fully established Destiny's Child as, well, bootlycious.
