    LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - One of the biggest girl groups of the 21st century is making a comeback. Or, at least, some new music.

    Destiny's Child - a bootylicious R&B act consisting of Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams - announced on Thursday that they will be releasing a compilation album later this month, which contains the first new song they've recorded since 2004.

    "We are so proud to announce the first original Destiny's Child music in eight years," a post on the group's Facebook page read.

    If this is a sign of a reunion album or tour to come, the girls are taking baby steps for now.

    "Nuclear" will be the only new track on "Love Songs,"a collection of the best-selling group's most romantic recordings, which include "Cater 2 U," "Brown Eyes" and one of their biggest hits, "Say My Name."

    The girls called it quits in 2005 after releasing four full-length studio albums, which sold over 60 million copies between 1997 and 2005 to make Destiny's Child the world's top-selling female vocal group.

    Following the split, Beyoncé became a household name as a solo artist, actress and Jay-Z's wife, while both Rowland and Williams found some success pursuing independent careers as well.

    The 14-track "Love Songs" drops on January 29, but is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
