From The Vault: Destiny’s Child – ‘Girl’

Published: Sunday 2nd Aug 2020 by Joe

We’re taking a brief break from ‘Black Is King’ to bring you this week’s From The Vault pick. It’s Destiny’s Child solidarity anthem, ‘Girl.’

Released in 2005 as the third single from the ladies’ final album ‘Destiny Fulfilled,’ it was produced by 9th Wonder and written by Sean Garrett alongside the children of destiny.

Almost a decade after its release, it was revealed that the song was about an abusive relationship Kelly Rowland was in back when they were recording the album.

It was a Top 40 hit in the US, peaking at #23 and it charted at #6 in the UK.

The video for ‘Girl’ – directed by Bryan Barber – saw the belles paying homage to the HBO hit show ‘Sex And The City.’ DC3 can be seen walking down the streets of Manhattan in high fashion dresses, having lunch at a fancy restaurant, and Bey and Michelle let a unhappy Kelly know that she can count on them whenever things are bad with her partner.

*************

With Beyonce having obviously mastered the art of releasing successful and impactful side projects, the prospect of a Destiny’s Child reunion in any capacity is as titillating as ever. Whether a tour, a video streaming special, or a brand new LP/EP, we say the climate is fairly favorable for the girls to fully revive their supergroup in the most major of ways.

But as the Queen Bey hasn’t released any new material under her sole name since 2016’s ‘Lemonade’, we might have to wait a little while more to see our favorite gals together. But then again, with that one, you never really know…until you do.

Destiny’s Child, girls, we love forever.
