Destiny’s Child: The rocky road to the definitive line-up

October 6, 2020

Kelly, can you handle this? Michelle, can you handle this? Beyoncé, can you handle this? It’s a roll-call so iconic, it’s easy to forget this wasn’t Destiny's Child’s original line-up. A decade after the band first came together under a different name, it was in 2000 that they found their final form after a brutal year of line-up changes and legal battles. We go back to relive the drama and think about how it laid the foundations for who Beyoncé is today.
