The American pop/hip hop all women band Destiny's Child was founded in Houston, Texas in 1990. Originally, that band consisted of at least five members who performed under the name Girl's Tyme. As the group struggled to get things going, three members (Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams) broke away to form Destiny's Child and signed a record deal with Columbia Records in 1996. The group's self-titled first album was met with critical acclaim, but modest sales. The second album, The Writing's on the Wall (1999) proved to be a prediction of the future as it hit #5 on the Billboard Hot 200 Albums Chart. Finally, the group struck gold with the 2001 release of Survivor. The new album went all the way to #1 on the Albums Charts in many countries throughout the world, including the UK and the US. The best-selling track from the album was the hit single "Bootylicious", which made it to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, following in the footsteps of the group's other #1 hits, "Bills, Bills, Bills" (1999), "Say My Name" (2000) and "Independent Women Part I" (2000). While the group continued its successful journey through the next 4 years, the group finally called it quits in mid-2006 so that members could pursue other interests, including solo careers. While Rowland would record a #1 album later that year, it was Beyonce who would go on to an amazing solo career and a high-profile marriage to rap superstar Jay Z. Despite a discography that spanned only six years and six albums, Destiny's Child still sold over 60,000,000 records, placing them amongst the top best-selling trios of all-time. Combined with her success as a solo artist, Beyonce can lay claim to being one of the most successful women is the history of music.
