Kelly Rowland the stumbling block?
There are quiet rumblings across the entertainment community about the reunion of an iconic Houston group — but it may be more out of fear than love.
The New York Post recently reported that Columbia Records is making moves that look suspiciously like preemptive damage control. On the assumption that Houston native Beyoncé Knowles's upcoming album 4 will be a colossal failure, there have been numerous "quiet discussions" about a possible Destiny's Child reunion. Apparently, the label saw little hit potential in Bey's new tracks, but she refused to make changes.
Despite Columbia's ominous prediction, Rolling Stone didn't seem to take up much of an issue with the album, lauding its refreshing sound and characterizing it as the kind of album "a pop star makes when she doesn't feel like she has anything to prove."
Destiny's Child, the all-girl pop group responsible for such hits as "Say My Name" and "Survivor," disbanded in 2005 so that members could pursue individual projects.

Columbia hopes that a reunion album, possibly titled "Family Reunion," could help counteract the possible stagnation of Beyoncé's career. However, the NY Post's key source is not convinced that member Kelly Rowland would be on board: "She has her own solo career now, why would she want to be singing back up for Beyoncé?"
Rowland recently signed on as a judge of the UK TV hit The X Factor, and rumors have also circulated that Beyoncé will be joining her as a mentor on the show.
