Destiny's Child Christmas Songs & Music

Destiny's Child followed in the footsteps of great soul artists like The Temptations and The Supremes when they released their one and only Christmas album in 2001. The girls put their unique stamp all over the holiday tracks they covered, renaming tracks, rewriting harmonies and even using the track Platinum Bells to spruke their range of manufactured dolls.

8 Days of Christmas

2001: 8 Days of Christmas

Destiny’s Child bring their trademark R&B flavour to eight traditional carols, plus four holiday themed originals. Their renditions of classics like White Christmas are up-tempo and grooving, whilst Beyonce Knowles’ soul infused Silent Night is plaintive and beautiful. The group takes the liberty of renaming and several tracks: Silver Bells becomes Platinum Bells, a self-indulgent reminder of the band’s multi-platinum sales whilst The Twelve Days of Christmas is reduced to just eight days, with the substituted lyrics bringing gifts of Chloe shades and diamond belly rings. This is definitely a Christmas album for the new millennium, completely devoid of the sit round the fire feel of classic holiday records. Traditionalists will no doubt be seething, but for others, 8 Days of Christmas could be a breath of fresh holiday air.
