When word got out that Beyoncé was tied to the Super Bowl halftime performance next month, the world went gaga. The singer then brilliantly ramped up the anticipation by recruiting and reuniting her former band Destiny’s Child for the big event. And they have given us a taste of their upcoming performance with their new single, “Nuclear.”
Produced by Pharrell Williams, “Nuclear” definitely has the signature ’90′s feel, but not in a big hit sort of way. Though, it makes sense that it would sound like a filler track rather than a hit single. Whether or not the talented trio will make new music is unclear; their new upcoming album Love Songs is merely a compilation of their greatest hits from their past albums.
The new single is slower and chiller than I would have expected and sounds a little dated for this day and age. However, I love the fact that the song did not try to be “mainstream” following the recent music trends of dub-step and bass drops. Props for staying true to their time period!
Though the song may not make the 2013 greatest hits list, it definitely brings back memories for us 90′s kids. Listening to it reminded me of my old high school days, jamming out to “Jumpin’, Jumpin,” “Soldier,” and “Say My Name.”
