Run That Back!:10 Albums That Shaped Me
Survivor- Destiny’s Child
Ok, so you might be looking at this album cover like for real? But in all seriousness, Destiny’s Child was the ish for girls in middle school, like I was at the time. Even though I didn’t quite know what to call it back then, these ladies were singing about female empowerment (Independent Women Part I and II) and having respect for your body (Nasty Girl), while still managing to be Hot (Bootylicious). It also didn’t hurt that I was in a singing group at the time and we sang their gospel medley in a local talent competition. Even though I knew I never wanted to be a professional singer, Destiny’s Child still served as a great inspiration for a lot of little girls as well as our group.
