Before Destiny's Child, we had Girls Tyme and Matthew Knowles has now shared the first-ever project from the young icons-in-the-making.
If you know your R&B history you'll know that Destiny's Child was not always just Beyoncé, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. We used to have two other members, Letoya Tuckett and LaTavia Roberson and before that versions of a young DC were actually called Girls Tyme.
Now Beyoncé's dad Matthew Knowles has released an album by pre-Destiny's Child collective Girls Tyme for the first time ever.
Named 'Destiny's Child: The Untold Story', the new album features 15 new songs featuring Beyoncé and the rest of the group and has been released alongside a book of the same name revealing the group's history.
It's reported that Matthew Knowles bought the rights to Girls Tyme's masters back in the early noughties, however he decided not to share anything from the group due to the success of Destiny's Child.
Fans pointed out that the song 'Girls Tyme Fun' was actually what Beyoncé used during the intro to her iconic set at Coachella 2018.
It's also been claimed that the new Girls Tyme album was released against Beyoncé's will and has given fans a decision to make about whether they support it.
So far Beyoncé and her fellow Destiny's Child members have stayed quiet on the release of their old music.
i want to not support the release of the girls tyme album because released it without bey’s consent, but these girls are SINGING. pic.twitter.com/XkaXvRen06— ؘ (@luvthatforbey) December 2, 2019
So I’m listening to the Girls Tyme album..even though I feel like it’s shady and that Bey probably didn’t support it lol. But anyways, I wanna cry because it’s so crazy hearing baby Bey and then going 30 years later and listening to Bigger. So inspirational omfg. Wow. pic.twitter.com/4s43zT6Lc0— Tre (@_trevohn) December 2, 2019
