It seems 2013 is going to be a big year for music comebacks.
Beyonce announced today, via her website, that her girl group Destiny’s Child plans to release a new album. The “Bootylicious” girls haven’t put out new music together in eight years.
Bey’s solo career has since taken center stage, while bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams have mostly stayed out of the music spotlight.
“I am so proud to announce the first original Destiny’s Child music in eight years!” The “Single Ladies” singer posted.
The album, titled “Love Songs,” will be released Jan. 29, according to various media reports, just ahead of Beyonce’s Super Bowl half time performance.
Rowland and Williams have yet to comment on the new music.
And if that wasn’t enough, Justin Timberlake also made a vague announcement about a new project he has in the works.
The former ‘N Sync boy bander released a video on Thursday, which shows him heading into a music studio and discussing how he hasn’t released a new album since 2006.
“I’ve only done two albums in 10 years,” he said in the video. “I’m ready.”
The video indicated something would be released in three days, sending fans into a frenzy on Twitter about both music comebacks.
“Justin Timberlake AND Destiny's Child are coming back?!!? This will be a good year,” one fan tweeted.
“I am crying!!! Destiny’s Child and Justin Timberlake both releasing new music. Thank you!!!” another chimed in.
