riginally called Girls Tyme and the launchpad for the careers of Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. . Let's find out more about them, their biggest hits and my personal top five faves.
Back in 1990 the original members were Letoya Luckett and LeTavia Robertson. According to Wikipedia, LeToya started out in a choir in her local Baptist church where her father noticed she had talent and tried to get her into the music business. LeTavia auditioned for a girl group to become a rapper and dancer and then met future Destiny's Child member Beyonce Knowles, according to Wikipedia. They hit the mainstream in 1999 with their best selling second album called ‘The Writing’s On The Wall’.
Destiny’s Child three biggest hits were:
Bills, Bills, Bills – In 1999, this song peaked at Number Six in the UK Weekly Singles Chart and sold over 165,000 copies.
Jumpin’ Jumpin’ – This song was released in 2000 and it peaked at Number Five on the UK Weekly Singles Chart and sold over 195,000 copies
Survivor – Released in 2001, this song peaked at Number One in the UK Weekly Singles Chart and at the end of the year it peaked at number 35.
What I like about Destiny’s Child is that they’re quite unique and quirky. They have their own style and their vocals just all blend well together. Their songs are quite catchy and have a good beat. Their individual styles are quite cool, they look good together in the group and they know what songs work and what doesn’t work.
My Top 5
I love their song ‘Survivor’ because the lyrics “I’m a survivor, I’m not gon’ give up, I’m not gon’ stop... “ connect with me because I’ve gone through some personal issues and I’ve kept going and I’ve not let anything get me down. I’m a survivor!
Bug a Boo
I like this song because its got a good beat and I love how their vocals blend well together. I feel the song is about a girl whose boyfriend is annoying her by texting and calling her all the time therefore she tries to get rid of him. "Bug A Boo" sums up the song perfectly I think.
I like this song because its got a really good beat and I like how the song gives off a vibe like being in a club and the music is 'jumpin'. I think that there's a vibe as if all your friends are in a club and you're all enjoying being there and having fun.
Say My Name
I really like this song because I like how the girls tell their own version of how they're being cheated on and how they're 'calling out' their boyfriends. I also like the beat of the song and how Beyonce shows off her amazing vocals .
Lose My Breath
I really love this song because I feel like its got a 'dance battle' vibe to it, It has that vibe because at the time of this video, the girls were going through a rough patch and they were trying to figure out their different personalities. This definitely comes across during the song. They wanted to do this to get all of the animosity out of them.
So there it is. The career of Destiny’s Child. Their career has spanned 16 years. But unfortunately they did not stay together. Solo projects from the final members were put first. They did however reunite for the Superbowl Half Time Show in 2013, as Beyoncé Knowles was performing. You know what I think of them. I want to know what you think of them and what is your favourite song by them.
