The world is in full Beyoncé-overdrive once again, so it’s no surprise that her father, Matthew Knowles, has waited until now to announce that he is working on a biographical musical based around the rise and rise of Destiny’s Child.
Titled Survivor: The Destiny’s Child Musical and slated for a 2020 premiere, Knowles (via Consequence Of Sound) says the musical is an “honest, behind-the-scenes look at how the greatest girl group of all time was created.”
Now while that certainly might seem like a big call, it’s not undeserved: Destiny’s Child are the fourth highest selling girl group of all time, behind Spice Girls, The Andrews Sisters and TLC.
“I want to pull back the curtain,” Knowles, who used to manage the group, said in a statement.
“I feel it’s time to give the world an opportunity to hear, see and feel the victories and failures that I’ve had as a husband, father and manager who risked everything in pursuit of fulfilling dreams – those of mine and others.”
The musical is slated to premiere in Knowles’ hometown of Houston, with hopes of making it to Broadway and London’s West End.
It hasn’t been too long since we’ve had DC3 in our lives, either. Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams reunited last year for the former’s groundbreaking Coachella set, which has been immortalised in the Netflix documentary Homecoming, which was released last week.
