It’s really one of the big questions of Our Time, or at least this On The Run-heavy week. First there were rumors Jay Z allegedly dropped a clue and said “pregnant with another one” in concert, but then Beyonce posted some photos of her drinking champagne, which seemed to send a pretty strong “Nope!” message. Who really knows? (Beyonce, for one. Jay Z, probably. Maybe Blue Ivy Carter, but she’ll never tell.)
As for the rest of us, we can continue to wildly speculate…. or we can fondly remember another time Beyonce was kid-focused. Walk with me back to 2001, when girl group Destiny’s Child was eager to lend a hand to one of their member’s little sister’s burgeoning singing career (Solange!) and the whole gang performed the theme song for a new animated show for kids, The Proud Family.
Things that are delightful about this video:
1.) “It’s really cool. It’s a great channel for kids,” Beyonce once said about the Disney Channel.
2.) As is standard in videos from this era, the camera mostly focuses on the Knowles’, followed by Kelly Rowland, followed by Michelle Williams, who was also in the group.
3.) Baby Solange (she’s about 15 here) is already a budding fashionista in pink jeans, long braids… and a bedazzled jean jacket. Don’t worry, Solange — you only go up from here.
