Before Destiny’s Child saw their name penciled in history books as one of the world’s best-selling female group, the first incarnation of the group was the six-member ensemble, Girl’s Tyme.
Formed in 1990, the sextet featured Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and Latavia Roberson and would rise to national attention thanks to a failed appearance on the then-wildly popular televised talent show, ‘Star Search.’ Later managed by Mathew Knowles (who advised a few member and group name changes before settling on “Destiny’s Child”), the teen troop would later go on to world domination with most of their previous work under the Girl’s Tyme moniker “locked in a vault”…until now.
Mathew, who recently made headlines himself for revealing a battle with breast cancer (click here to read more), is well on recovery’s road and back to work. His latest effort? A “new” album of unreleased Girl’s Tyme music. More inside:
Taking to Instagram last week, Knowles announced:
The revelation – which comes just months after reports he is also hard at work on a Destiny’s Child musical (click here to read more) – was not accompanied by news of an official release date.
A move that will certainly appeal to die hard fans of the group’s history, its release only adds to overwhelming DC chatter as calls for a reunion increase heading into 2020 (which would mark the 20th anniversary of DC as a trio).
