2020 has been a strange year, to say the least, and Kanye hasn’t managed to steer too far from controversy throughout, from running for president to ranting on Twitter the last few days he seems to never be too far from a headline.
Luckily, this time we’re talking about something less controversial as yesterday (September 15th) he took to Twitter to share a video of himself listening to Michelle Williams’ 2014 track ‘Say Yes’ which features her former bandmates Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. He captioned the clip “SAY YES!!!” later adding “We need to produce that Destiny’s Child gospel album.”
Although it’s unclear whether Kanye has had any contact with the group about the potential record, it seems a potential collaboration would be unlikely due to Kanye’s strained relationship with Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z.
However, that doesn’t stop us dreaming of a Destiny’s Child comeback backed by Kanye production especially after he showed his ability to produce a gospel record with last year’s Jesus Is King where the instrumentals were by far the best component of the project.
Destiny’s Child has been rumored to make a return since their brief reunion during Beyoncé’s Coachella 2018 headline set. Last year, the singer’s father claimed that a comeback was three years away. Kelly Rowland later addressed the reports, explaining she hoped it would remain a secret should the group return in the future.
