Destiny's Child's new song 'Nuclear' drops: Listen
Pharrell produced this airy track
- Critic's Rating B-
- Readers' Rating C
The term "nuclear" has a heaviness about it, but Destiny's Child's new song of the same name feels very much in the air.
As previously reported, the trio reunited for a fresh track for the first time in eight years, to pack an extra punch in with the release of their "Love Songs" hits compilation. "Nuclear" was produced by Pharrell Williams -- who is also helping on Beyonce's next solo album -- and the sound overall dips back into an early '90s R&B vibe, powered by high volts of tambourine.

It's a sweet and easy-listening tune, as Beyonce takes those runs in the refrain and Michelle Williams getting an even more angelic verse. It's not Song Of The Year by any stretch, due to lethargy, but it's pleasant hearing the Children back together.
According to Mashable (that's right: Mashable), Pharrell co-wrote "Nuclear" with Michelle, James Fauntleroy and Lonny Bereal.
Destiny's Child is on slate to take the stage with Beyonce during her solo career-driven halftime show at the Super Bowl, and they will tackle "Nuclear."
