Destiny’s Child — as a group and as solo artists — have taught us a thing or two about love. The group’s sophomore studio album, The Writing’s On The Wall, is laced with stories on temptation and trust, or a lack thereof. Gender roles are reversed; what men can do, women can do. The original members — Beyoncé, LaTavia Roberson, LeToya Luckett and Kelly Rowland — deal directly with cheating. In fact, the album is predominantly about the cause-and-effect of cheating, nearly mapping out a revenge plot over its sixteen tracks. As well, the full-length tackles other issues, such as satisfaction and self-worth, that one can’t help but relate to.

Destiny’s Child is one of the biggest girl groups in music history. Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams are not only known for their effortless harmonies and coordinated, sexy ensembles but also for representing the ladies properly and promoting the image of a strong, independent woman.
All of that can be seen in the new Destiny’s Child Video Anthology, a career-spanning collection of 16 iconic short music films available on DVD June 4th.
