Technically, Farrah Franklin's absence makes this incomplete, but she left the group just five months after stepping in.

Destiny's Child recently set the Internet ablaze after one of its members, LeToya Luckett, posted the group's first-ever picture of all five main members together. For those unaware, they went through various lineup changes throughout their history together, and they recently met up for the RENAISSANCE film's world premiere from Beyoncé. We thought that was all, but we just got this special new treat on Wednesday (January 3) to witness. It seems like this was a particularly thankful post from Luckett about her year as a whole that championed this as one of its best moments.

"ALL LOVE,' LeToya Luckett wrote on Instagram as the picture's caption, which sees Destiny's Child posing in silver, black, and white fits. "This was hands down my favorite moment of 2023. The Love, The joy, The Prayer, The Healing. May we all experience beautiful moments like this in 2024 @beyonce @kellyrowland @iamlatavia @michellewilliams. All of the Chilren." The superstar R&B group began as Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Luckett, and LaTavia Roberson. Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin replaced Luckett and Roberson in 2000, and after Franklin left after five months, this formed their most successful lineup.

Destiny's Child Poses Together For The First Time In New Picture

Furthermore, this caveat is why Franklin doesn't appear in this picture, although this doesn't seem to be a combative departure or omission. Regardless, it's amazing to see Destiny's Child come together after decades of greatness, especially amid certain rumors in the mill. Back in May of 2023, Beyoncé's father Matthew Knowles teased a potential reunion album. While he clarified that the decision rests solely within the current lineup, as their manager, he expresses his wholehearted support of the hypothetical moment.

Meanwhile, back in 2022, the music executive explained why Beyoncé's sister, Solange, never joined the group. "You would think joining [the group] would be a dream to her," he shared on social media. "She had every opportunity to seize the success that the group was experiencing. And Solange’s desires and faith in herself trumped my personal desires for her. You see, I realized then that she had an unmatched character and an unwavering belief in herself. Me as a father could never get in the way of that. I finally supported and encouraged her decision. I didn’t fight against it anymore." For more news and the latest updates on Destiny's Child, keep checking in with HNHH.
