Riff: Destiny’s Child – “Nuclear”

Jan 23, 2013

We’re just getting better/When the two become one /On a quantum level

from Nuclear lyrics by Destiny's Child

In the same week Timbaland‘s new JT production was met with a resounding shrug, his early 00s rival, Pharrell, struck a much bigger blow with this dreamy trip-hop ode to sexual chemistry. Props to Destiny’s Child for managing to shoehorn the word ‘quantum’ into their effortlessly classy comeback.
