Destiny’s Child

In the era of all woman groups Destiny’s Child is surely one of the most successful all woman group’s that ever created music prior to their disbanding by the members to go onto individual solo careers. Destiny’s Child was formed in Houston, Texas in the 1990’s. The band was originally known as Girl’s Tyme and was comprised of Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett. The initial band had some success but in the mid-90’s, the band changed their name to Destiny’s Child after signing with Columbia Records. The band’s success started to come after the release of their second album “The Writing’s on the Wall” which produced such hits which became No. 1 on the charts like “Say My Name” and “Bills, Bills, Bills”. Unfortunately the success of Destiny’s Child with the original members would be short lived because of internal strife among Knowles and Rowland on the one hand and Robertson and Luckett on the other. The latter two ended up leaving the band and were replaced by Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin.

The latter addition Franklin later left the band and the band composed of Beyonce, Rowland and Williams continued Destiny’s Child as a trio. The Trio hit their stride with the release of their third album “Survivor” which produced monster hits including “Bootylicious”, “Survivor” and “Independent Women”. While solo careers of Beyonce Knowles and Kelly Rowland put the group into a hiatus, the trio did come back for one last album in 2004 entitled Destiny Fulfilled. The album was commercially successful despite mixed reviews from the critics. The album reached No. 2 on the Billboard charts and produced a number of hit singles including “Lose My Breath”, “Cater 2 U”, “Soldier”, and “Girl”. Destiny’s Child disbanded after this last album and the members have not been in talks to reunite anytime soon. However, Beyonce at least hinted that Destiny Fulfilled may not be the last album. For fans of Destiny’s Child, we hope its not.
