was an American R&B group. Originally a quartet, the
group eventually became a trio consisting of Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and
Michelle Williams. 
According to the World Music Awards, Destiny’s Child is best selling female
group of all time. Billboard also ranked the group one the greatest musical
trios of all time. 
On June 12, 2005, the group announced in Barcelona that they would no longer be
performing together after completing their tour, and that they would be pursuing
their own individual careers in music, theatre, television, and film.
In 1990 Beyoncé Knowles and LaTavia Roberson met at elementary school and
became friends instantly — the duo loved singing. Beyoncé’s father, Mathew
Knowles, set about developing an act based on their singing and rapping, under
the name Girl's Tyme, which included R&B singers Keke Wyatt and Támar.
They landed an appearance on Star Search, but they did not win. LeToya
Luckett met Beyoncé Knowles in class and eventually bacame friends. In 1993,
LeToya Luckett and other friend Kelly Rowland joined the act. The group
underwent several name changes — Girl’s Tyme, The Dolls, Something Fresh, and
Cliché — before deciding upon Destiny’s Child, which is based on a passage from
the Book of Isaiah in the Bible.
They spent the next few years working their way up from the Houston club scene,
eventually opening for popular R&B artists like SWV, Dru Hill, and Immature. In
1997, Destiny’s Child was offered a recording contract by Columbia Records,
which they accepted.
The group made their recording debut with "Killing Time," which appeared on
the soundtrack for the 1997 film Men in Black. Destiny’s Child released
their debut album Destiny’s Child to mixed reviews on February 17, 1998.
The albums first single, "No, No, No", featured two completely different
versions of the same song. "No, No, No Part 1" and "No, No, No Part 2" were
released simultaneously, however, Part 2 was considered a "remix" version of
Part 1. "No, No, No Part 2", featuring The Fugees member Wyclef Jean, quickly
climbed to number one on the Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks
chart and #3 on the Hot 100 chart. The single sold over 1 million copies in the
U.S. However, follow-up singles "With Me Part 1" and "Get On The Bus" failed to
reproduce the success of "No, No, No". Although "With Me Part 1" had made a
peaked at thirty-five on US Rhythmic Top 40 in 1998. Destiny’s Child
eventually went Platinum after later success. Expectations were not high for the
group’s second album, as most industry critics considered them to be another
disposable R&B girl group with one-hit wonder status. The LP Destiny’s Child
eventually sold more than 3 million copies worldwide. Destiny’s Child failed
awards & nominations. However, Destiny’s Child garned 3 Soul Train Lady of Soul
Awards in 1998. They won for Best R&B/Soul Single, Group, Band or Duo and Best
R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist for the single "No, No, No", and Best R&B/Soul Album
of the Year, Group, Band, or Duo their self-titled debut and was also nominated
for Best R&B/Soul or Rap Song of the Year for "No, No, No".

The Writing’s on the Wall
Destiny’s Child re-entered the studio quickly, bringing in a new lineup of
producers, including Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs, Rodney Jerkins, Dwayne Wiggins,
Chad Elliot, Daryl Simmons, and Missy Elliott. Critics were generally positive
about the album; Music critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote: "The
Writing's on the Wall [...] an assured step forward for the girl group. Not
only are they maturing as vocalists, they are fortunate to work with such
skilled, talented producers…who all give the quartet rich, varied music upon
which to work their charm". Lead single "Bills, Bills, Bills" became the
group’s first number one Hot 100 hit (and second R&B number one) in the summer
of 1999, and paced by its success, the accompanying album, The Writing's on
the Wall, entered the Billboard 200 at number six upon its release on July
27, 1999. The second single, "Bug-a-Boo" hit the Top 40 pop charts, while its
music video received heavy rotation on MTV and BET. During international
promotions for the album they made the tour diary ‘ASAP’ with Burning Vision
Buoyed by the group’s breakout success, two of its original members, LeToya
Luckett and LaTavia Roberson, attempted to split with manager Mathew Knowles,
charging that he kept a disproportionate share of the band’s profits, attempted
to exert too much control, and unfairly favored his daughter. While they never
intended to leave the group, relations naturally grew strained, and when the
video for "Say My Name" premiered in February 2000, many fans (not to mention
Roberson and Luckett) were surprised to find two new members — Michelle Williams
and Farrah Franklin — joining Knowles and Rowland. Infuriated, Roberson and
Luckett took legal action in March, suing both Knowles and their former
bandmates for breach of partnership and fiduciary duties. A war of words
followed in the press; meanwhile, Destiny’s Child became a pop-cultural
phenomenon. "Say My Name" became the group’s biggest single to date and third
number-one single. The abrupt membership changes within the group seemed to only
heighten the group’s visibility, finally separating them from the endless pack
of teen pop starlets.
In June 2000, the album’s fourth single, "Jumpin' Jumpin'", became a top-five
hit; however, another departure came from the ever-evolving girl-group. Farrah
Franklin, who had replaced an original member just five months earlier, left the
group for various personal reasons. This split was less controversial, while The
Writing’s on the Wall would eventually be certified 8x platinum in the United
States alone and sell over 13 million units worldwide.
. In the meantime, toward the end of
2000, Roberson and Luckett dropped the portion of their lawsuit aimed at Rowland
and Knowles in exchange for a settlement, though they continued to pursue action
against Knowles' father; as part of the agreement, both sides were prohibited
from attacking each other publicly. The Writings on the Wall furthered
the girls' careers as it was one of the top ten selling albums of 2000.
Now a trio of Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams,
Destiny’s Child were chosen to record the theme song for the film version of
Charlie’s Angels; released as a single in October 2000, "Independent Women,
Pt. 1" raced up the charts and spent eleven consecutive weeks at number one (the
longest running of 2000 and by a female group). They quickly began work on a new
album to capitalize on their success. In February 2001, Destiny’s Child won two
Grammy awards for "Say My Name", including Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo
or Group and Best R&B Song. While speaking with MTV.com, Rowland had this to say
about the upcoming album: "I know everybody can relate to this album it’s very
diverse and inspiring. The year 2000 was very challenging, and I know that gave
Beyoncé a lot of inspiration to write songs for the album. We cannot wait for
everybody to hear it. It’s so empowering for a lot of people who have already
heard a little bit of it."
Solo projects after The Writings on the Wall
After only a few short months as a member of Destiny's Child Franklin
abruptly left the group. Since then she has been continuing her career as a
recording artist, and has worked on recording her first studio album while also
searching for a record label to release her debut. On 29 January 2007 Franklin
appeared with other former members of Destiny's Child, LeToya Luckett and
LaTavia Roberson, in The E! special The Boulevard Of Broken Dreams
a documentary of the lifestyle and issues which she had to face during her
membership and departure from the famous girl group. Franklin has also been
featured in music videos by artists such as Mr. Cheeks and R.L. Huggar. She is
expected to be featured on Erin Bria Wright debut single "Candy Girl".
After her departure from the group LeToya Luckett formed the girl-group Anjel
in 2000 with fellow Destiny's Child alumna LaTavia Roberson. The group
eventually disbanded in 2003 before releasing their debut album. After the Anjel
project fell through, Luckett signed with Noontime, an Atlanta-based
management/production company. After making the deal with Noontime, she recorded
a five song demo and later signed with Capitol Records that same year. After
which Luckett appeared on the albums of many R&B and Hip-Hop artists such as
MIMS, Houston, Bun B, Slim Thug, Diddy and several other artists.
Before LeToya released her album in July 2006, however, she released her
first single "U Got What I Need". This song was included on her album.
Her self-titled debut album (Letoya), was released in July 2006 and debuted
at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums
charts, outselling the compilation Now That's What I Call Music! and
Pharrel Williams' debut album. The album was certified gold after one month and
as of December 2006, the album has been certified platinum. The album's lead
single, "Torn", also became a smash hit reaching number two on the Billboard
Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Luckett is the second member of Destiny's Child,
after Beyoncé Knowles, to have an album debut at number one on the Billboard
200 and achieve platinum status.
On 29 January 2007 Luckett appeared with other former members of Destiny's
Child, LaTavia Roberson and Farrah Franklin, in The E! special The Boulevard
Of Broken Dreams
documentary of the lifestyle, issues, and successes which she endured during and
after her membership of the famous girl group.
After her departure from the group LaTavia Roberson formed the girl-group
Anjel in 2000 with fellow Destiny's Child alumna LaToya Luckett. The group
eventually disbanded in 2003 before releasing their debut album. After the Anjel
project fell apart she took a long break.
In July 2006, it was confirmed by Roberson herself that she has been secretly
recording her debut album on and off since March of that same year. So far she
has collaborated with producers such as Scott Storch. Presently, she is in the
studio working on her self-titled debut that may be released sometime in 2007
with help from Swizz Beatz, Polow Da Don and Andre 3000 of OutKast.
On 29 January 2007 Roberson appeared with other former members of Destiny's
Child, LeToya Luckkett and Farrah Franklin, in The E! special The Boulevard
Of Broken Dreams
documentary of the lifestyle, successes, and trails which she had to face during
and after her membership from the famous girl group.
On the third Destiny’s Child album, Beyoncé assumed more control than ever
before, taking a greater hand in co-producing and co-writing the entire album,
except for the song "Emotion" (written by Barry Gibb and Robin Gibb of the Bee
Gees), which was a cover of the hit song originally performed by Samantha Sang.
This version of Emotion was produced by Mark J. Feist and Beyoncé. "We're
excited about the album," Knowles told MTV News shortly before the album’s
release. She adds, "...I got a chance to co-write and produce all of the songs."
"And she did an incredible job", the group’s Kelly Rowland added. "But everybody
is a part of the music", Knowles said. "Everybody is singing lead on every song,
and it’s so great — because now Destiny’s Child is at the point vocally and
mentally that it should be at. It’s just great to be a part of this group."
Arguably, this was an inaccurate statement, as some of the songs are completely
sung/lead by Knowles, including "Brown Eyes, "Perfect Man", "Dance With Me" (in
the Australian and U.K. special versions of "Survivor"), and "Dangerously in
Love", the song that Beyoncé used for the title and lead track for her solo
album, even though it was credited as being sung by Destiny’s Child, while
Destiny’s Child are heard in the background. However, the lead vocals on the
majority of songs on the album are divided evenly, where Knowles and Rowland
sing a verse each and Williams does the bridge, however there were some
variations, particularly on "Bootylicious" (where Rowland sings two verses) and
"Independent Women Part 1" (where Knowles sings the first and second verses and
Rowland sings the pre-chorus twice).
Survivor – whose title was reportedly inspired by a DJ’s joke about
Destiny’s Child members 'voting one another off the island', much like the
popular CBS reality series Survivor – hit stores in the spring of 2001,
and entered the Billboard 200 at number one, selling over 663,000 copies in its
first week sales (the highest ever for a girl-group.) The first three singles,
"Independent Women Part I", "Survivor" and "Bootylicious", were predictably huge
hits, with the last becoming the group’s fourth number-one Hot 100 single. A
melismatic cover of the Bee Gees/Mark J. Feist produced' "Emotion" was also
successful, becoming a top-ten pop hit. Survivor sold well, certified 4x
platinum domestically and went on to sell over 10 million worldwide. In the UK,
Destiny’s Child had two consecutive hit singles at number one which were
"Independent Women Part 1" and "Survivor". In Australia, the album was certified
double platinum and debuted at number four on the charts. It made a comeback
months later, peaking at number eight on the Australian charts. "Independent
Women Part 1" reached number four and was certified double platinum, Survivor
reached number seven and went platinum, Bootylicious reached number four and
went Platinum, "Emotion" reached twenty-two and went Gold, and "Nasty Girl"
reached number ten and also went Gold. In total the albums and singles sold more
than 450,000 units in Australia, and for the second year running, were one of
the top twenty selling artists in Australia (following "The Writing’s on the
Wall" a year earlier). In the U.S., the LP was the seventh highest selling album
of the year.
Coincidentally, LeToya and Latavia once again filed another lawsuit against
Destiny's Child and Sony Music for derisive
lyrics about them in the Grammy-winning song Survivor. They felt that a
line in the song, "You thought I wouldn't sell without you, sold 9 million," was
specifically directed towards them, and thus was in violation of a previous
settlement barring either party from "making public comment of a disparaging
nature concerning one another." They sought and won unspecified damages.
Toward the end of the year, the group released a holiday album, 8 Days of
Christmas, and announced plans for a series of side projects, including solo
albums from all three members (to be staggered over the next year and a half, so
as to avoid competition). In early 2002, a remix compilation titled This Is
the Remix was released to tide fans over. The group also finished the
International leg of their successful world tour this year.
Solo projects after Survivor
Williams became the first member of Destiny’s Child to have a solo project
released. Heart to Yours, a contemporary gospel collection, reached
number one on the Top Gospel Albums chart and sold 480,000 copies in the U.S and
was certified gold.
Her second gospel album, Do You Know reached number two on the Top
Christian Album chart and number three on the Top Gospel Albums chart shortly
after its release in January 2004. To date, this album has sold just over
350,000 copies in the U.S.
Williams also received rave reviews after replacing Toni Braxton in the lead
role of Aida on Broadway in November 2003. In 2007, Williams will star in
the regional production in Chicago of the musical version of The Color Purple
(currently on Broadway) as Shug Avery, a glamorous singer known for her sexual
In October 2002, Rowland’s solo debut, Simply Deep featured the
number-one Hot 100 hit "Dilemma", a Grammy-winning (Best Rap/Song Collaboration)
duet with hip-hop superstar Nelly, Dilemma eventually spent ten weeks at number
one. The debut album did achieve moderate success. With "Dilemma" Rowland became
the first member of Destiny’s Child to reach number one outside the group.
Internationally, Rowland was on a roll, reaching number one in the U.K., where
her album was certified platinum, and in several other countries' album charts
went gold (Ireland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and
the U.S.), reaching number three on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Album chart
and twelve on the Billboard 200. The album has sold over 500,000 copies
receiving gold status in the United States and 2.5 million worldwide. In
2003, Rowland made her feature film debut in the horror film Freddy vs. Jason.
On July 3, 2007 she released her 2nd studio-album Ms. Kelly, which features
Like This, a collaboration with Eve and eleven other tracks. Like This peaked at
#30 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. The album Ms. Kelly debuted at #6 on the
Billboard 200 Album Chart. The video for her second single, "Ghetto" premiered
on BET's Access Granted on September 10, 2007. The song "Work" will be released
as her second international single. She is also planning a re-release for early
In 2001, Knowles co-starred with Mekhi Phifer in MTV’s remake of Bizet’s
Carmen, Carmen: A Hip Hopera. In 2002, Knowles co-starred with Mike
Myers in the box-office blockbuster Austin Powers in Goldmember. She
recorded a single for its soundtrack called "Work It Out". The song was a
different style for Knowles and failed to achieve commercial success in the US,
(although it was successful overseas), which led her to scrap most of the 45
songs recorded for her solo debut.
Her 2003 solo debut, Dangerously in Love, debuted at number one and
sold over 5 million copies in the United States and over 12 million worldwide.
It yielded the number-one hits "Crazy in Love" featuring hip hop superstar Jay-Z
(certified 2x platinum), and "Baby Boy" featuring Sean Paul (certified
platinum). Top-five songs "Me, Myself and I" and "Naughty Girl", the latter also
certified gold, followed.
Critically, Knowles has been well-received by many, even netting five Grammy
awards in one night, for Dangerously In Love, tying the record for most
Grammys received in one night by a female with Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, and
Norah Jones. Same year, Knowles co-starred in her second feature film, The
Fighting Temptations alongside Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr..
In September 2006, Beyoncé continued her success with her second album
B'Day. B'Day won one Grammy for "Best Contemporary R&B Album", and
Knowles also starred in Dreamgirls, the film production of the 1981 hit
In mid-2007, Beyonce fell head first down a small flight of stairs while
performing in Orlando, Florida. While not seriously hurt, she requested that
nobody upload the fall onto Youtube. Uploads did indeed happen, but mysteriously
disappeared a few days later.
In September 2007 Beyonce confirmed her next album will be released in the
summer of 2008. It is rumored to have collaborations with Kelly Rowland,
Michelle Williams, and Jay Z.
After three years apart, achieving individual success in films, on Broadway,
endorsements and with solo albums, the three women of Destiny’s Child reunited
with a new album, Destiny Fulfilled. A worldwide concert tour, sponsored
by McDonald's, Destiny Fulfilled… and Lovin' It Tour, went to sixteen countries
and over seventy-five cities worldwide, starting in Hiroshima, Japan on April 9,
2005, and ending in Vancouver, Canada; stops included Australia, Europe, and the
U.S. and Canada. "Lose My Breath", the album’s first single, produced by Rodney
Jerkins, became the group’s ninth Top 10 Hot 100 hit. The album saw the trio
shift to a harder, "urban" sound and was released on November 15, 2004. The
album also saw greater equality in the trio, with each member contributing to
writing on all tracks on the album, as well as becoming executive producers
aside Matthew Knowles. This was also evident in the photography, as Beyoncé no
longer assumed the central position- this was now occupied by Williams and
Rowland, who are the central figure on the cover of Destiny Fulfilled, as
well as a lot of the accompanying photography and posters promoting the album.
Destiny Fulfilled was one of the best selling albums of 2005, selling over 6
million copies worldwide, and pushed the group back into the position of the
best-selling female group and American group of the year.
The album did not win any of the Grammy awards for which it was nominated.
During this time, Destiny’s Child was named the Best Selling Female Group of All
Time by the World Music Awards.
Final destiny and the future
On June 13, 2005, it was announced the group would disband after their world
tour ends in the fall of 2005. It was decided that the split would occur
after the very last concert in Vancouver, Canada. The group first appeared on
MTV’s Total Request Live on June 21, 2005 to officially confirm their split.
Their management decided to document their final tour for a special farewell DVD
which was released March 28, 2006.
The group released their greatest hits album, #1’s on October 25,
2005. Despite the title of the album, they had only five number-one singles on
the billboard chart. The album includes three new songs, one titled "Stand
up for Love". Lyrically the song is the anthem for World Children’s Day, but
relates to troubled times such as third-world poverty, hurricanes Katrina and
Rita, and the late 2004 tsunami. "Stand up for Love" was Destiny’s Child’s last
single. #1's reached number six on the official U.K. album top forty,
with first week sales over 30,000 and number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 Album
chart with sales of 113,000. The album has sold over 3 million copies worldwide
to date, making it the best selling Greatest Hits album by a girl group.
Mattel released Destiny’s Child Barbie Collector Dolls in August 2005. In
November 2005, Destiny’s Child helped Wal-Mart kick off an intensive holiday
campaign with television ads, with the group celebrating the holidays with
family and friends. Destiny’s Child’s last televised performance was at the 2006
NBA All-Star Game on February 19 in Houston, Texas. Knowles told MTV News:
"Every time we go on someone’s television show, they want to be the person to
say it’s the last show. But we've said a million times, 'It’s not the last
show!' Because we're gonna sing together again, again and again. We love each
other and we're friends. It’s the last album, but it’s not the last show." On
March 28, 2006, Destiny’s Child were cemented on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, in
August they were awarded for winning the Billboard Poll for best music trio
On Wednesday February 28, 2007 on MTV’s TRL, Beyoncé Knowles announced that
for the re-release of her album B'Day she would have a music video for every
song on the b-side and that Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland were featured in
the video for "Get Me Bodied." Recently in another appearance on the broadcast
show she was asked by a VJ what was going on with Destiny’s Child and she
answered with, "Actually I just did a video with them..."
Knowles explained that doing the choreography rehearsals brought out the kids
in them and that they were all 'goofy' during rehearsals. The video is for "Get
Me Bodied" and will feature Beyoncé, Kelly, Michelle, and Beyoncé’s sister
Solange. The video was released on the B'Day Anthology Video Album in early
April 2007. She said, "It felt like old times..." Later in the episode she
quoted that Destiny’s Child could reunite in 2007 to make a song or
On Tuesday, June 26, 2007, Beyoncé, Kelly, and Michelle made a mini-reunion
at the 2007 BET Awards. Beyoncé performed Get Me Bodied with special guests
Michelle, Solange, and Mo'Nique. Then, Kelly performed Like This with Eve. After
the performance, they all danced to Like This.
Additionally, during the September 2, 2007 Los Angeles stop of The Beyoncé
Experience tour, Beyoncé invited Kelly and Michelle out to sing a brief snippet
of the Destiny's Child single "Survivor." They also sang Happy Birthday to
Beyonce. The performance was featured on Beyonce's tour dvd.
Destiny's Child Reunion and Fifth Studio Album
Destiny's Child is reportedly reuniting in 2009 according to an interview
given by Mathew Knowles. He said in the interview, "I believe that is the time
that the girls will get back into the studio together and make another album."
He said the Destiny's Child reunion was always coming but no one knew when until
recently. Apparently the girls want to finish up their solo projects. Beyonce is
currently in the studio working on her yet-to-be-titled third solo album. Kelly
is working on her re-release to be out in early 2008 and Michelle will release
her album in early 2008 as well. The girls will finish up their solo projects
before hitting the recording studios for their fifth album. Solange Knowles is
also reportedly joining Destiny's Child for the new album.
David Foster and his daughter Amy Foster-Gillies wrote Destiny’s Child’s last
single "Stand up for Love" for World Children’s Day, an event which takes place
annually around the world on December 31 to raise awareness and funds for
children’s causes worldwide. Over the past three years, more than $50 million
has been raised to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities and other children’s
organizations. Destiny’s Child lent their voices and support as global
ambassadors for the 2005 program.
Knowles, Rowland, along with Mathew Knowles, Tina Knowles, and Solange
Knowles, recently announced the formation of the Survivor Foundation, a
charitable entity set up for the purpose of providing transitional housing for
Hurricane Katrina victims and storm evacuees in the Houston, Texas area. The
Survivor Foundation extends the philanthropic mission of the Knowles-Rowland
