Background
In December 1999, LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson tried to split with their manager, Mathew Knowles, claiming that he was keeping too much of the group's profits and that he favored Beyoncé Knowles and Kelly Rowland.[2] When the music video for "Say My Name" debuted in February 2000, Roberson and Luckett found out that they were being replaced with Michelle Williams, a former backup singer, and Farrah Franklin, an aspiring singer-actress.[2] In July 2000, just five months after joining, it was announced that Franklin would be leaving the group.[2] According to the group, Franklin missed a handful of promotional appearances and concerts and was asked to leave the group.[2] Franklin stated that she quit because of negative vibes in the group and her inability to assert any control in decision making.[2]

Recording
After emerging as the group's focal point, Knowles assumed more control taking a greater hand in writing the material and even producing some of the record herself.[3] Knowles wrote and produced almost every single track on the album, although, Knowles didn't intend to write and produce most of the songs on the album.[4] She explained, "I only wanted to do like three songs ... The label kept saying, Do another song, do another song, do another song. It wasn't planned. It wasn't like I said, OK, I'm going to take charge."[4] The album was originally planned to be called Independent Women, but was later changed to Survivor because of the turmoil that has coincided with the group.[5]

The song "Survivor" was inspired by a joke that a radio station had made about the fact that three members had already left the group.[6] Knowles was inspired to take the negative comment and turn it into a positive thing by writing a song out of it.[6] Knowles wrote the song "Bootylicious" on a plane flight to London while listening to the track "Edge of Seventeen" by Stevie Nicks when the word "Bootylicious" just popped in to her head.[4] While recording sessions were going on, Rowland recorded the song "Angel" which appeared on the soundtrack of Down to Earth.[3]

With Survivor, Destiny's Child became the first U.S. female group to have a #1 album on the UK charts since Diana Ross & the Supremes hit that slot 24 years ago with a "Greatest Hits" package. Survivor is the first album of original studio material (i.e., not a "greatest hits" collection) by a female American group to hit #1 in the 43-year history of the UK chart. With two #1 UK singles ("Independent Women Part I" and "Survivor"), Destiny's Child holds the record for most #1 UK singles by any U.S. female group. The last female American group to have a #1 UK single was the Bangles with "Walk Like An Egyptian" in 1987.

"Survivor," the album's title track is currently the #2 single on the Billboard Hot 100 having spent six weeks in that spot. "Independent Women Part I" (the smash single from the "Charlie's Angels" soundtrack which also appears on Survivor) has occupied the #1 slot on Billboard's Hot 100, Hot R&B and Hot Dance charts. Destiny's Child has just finished lensing a video--featuring a cameo by Stevie Nicks--for "Bootylicious," the next single from Survivor.

The album garnered positive to mixed reviews. "Survivor" received a score of 63/100 on Metacritic, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[12] Entertainment Weekly praised the album saying that "(Survivor) is the divas' premature, but inevitable growing pains album." Spin Magazine commented that "Survivor is relentlessly inventive in its recombinations."[13] But New York Magazine was less impressed saying: "All fifteen tracks are one-dimensional disses and dismissals of scantily clad women, vengeful boyfriends, and the group's assorted doubters." Allmusic commented that: "As contrived and calculated as a Mariah Carey record, only without the joy."[14]
