Ever since you first rocked out to “Say My Name” on your Walkman in 2000 you just knew you were listening to the future song of a greatest hits compilation twelve years down the line. It was destiny, duh.
The former girl group of the late ‘90s, early aughties will release “Playlist” on October 9—the inevitable greatest hits collection that coincides with the 15 year anniversary of the trio’s first number one hit “No, No, No, Part 2” in 1998.
Here’s the complete 14 song tracklist:
2. Bug A Boo
3. Emotion (The Neptunes Remix)
4. Jumpin', Jumpin'
5. Independent Women, Part I
6. Say My Name
7. No, No, No, Part 2 (feat. Wyclef Jean)
9. Lose My Breath
10. So Good
12. Bills, Bills, Bills
13. Soldier (feat. T.I. & Lil Wayne)
14. Illusion (feat. Wyclef Jean & Pras of Refugee Camp)
As evidenced by that list, Destiny’s Child really did release some of the best R&B songs of the past decade and a half. By the way, this October album isn’t to be confused with the anticipated reunion album of new unreleased Destiny's Child material that Mathew Knowles—Beyonce’s father and the group’s manager—says will be out in November.
Fans will be replacing “No No No” with a whole lot of “Yes Yes Yes” starting next month.
It really sort of pains me inside that there are 15-year-olds running around in this world who have no idea Destiny’s Child had four original members and wore matching Japanese-inspired get ups made out of K-Mart fabric. Humble beginnings.
