The same day Beyonce announced a new Destiny's Child track and a greatest hits album, sources confirmed to Us Weekly that the group would reunite for this year's Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 3. This will be the group's first performance together since 2006.
Beyonce, 31, will headline the show and open with a solo performance. She'll be joined later by former group mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. The trio will reportedly sing a combination of their original hits as well as their new single, "Nuclear." The track is the first original song the trio has recorded together in more than eight years.
Queen Bey, who is also scheduled to sing the national anthem at President Obama's second inauguration, will wrap up the show alone with a finale performance. She's slated to premiere a new track from her upcoming fifth album, according to the Us Weekly post. Beyonce reportedly worked closely with Justin Timberlake on the album, which is scheduled to drop as early as April.
