I have a fascination with sassiness. When I was in elementary school, music from Destiny’s Child, 3LW, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Brandy, Missy Elliott, Aaliyah etc. were on the radio. I liked their tunes when they came out, along with almost everything on the radio (I had no knowledge of electronic music), but these diva ideals stuck with me over the years, and I want to share them on Disco Droppings. This will be a weekly series called “Diva Dayz”. For all the independent ladies reading this, I hope these artists will encourage you. Their fierce attitude and personality seems to be lacking in today’s musical and social landscape.
This R&B girl group remains iconic and an inspiration to new school electronic producers, looking back to this golden age of modern soul and pop. Selling over 45 million records around the world, Destiny’s Child are one of the best selling recording artists in the United States. When the group was in its early stages, several members came and went, leaving Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams as the final trio. These ladies had outfits for DAYS. Beyonce’s mother would create clothes for the 3, with tweaks and changes to each so they were distinct and at the same time, worked together as a unit. I’ve included the tracks that get me so hyped, along with a hilarious interview with the group, sass to the max..especially from Beyonce.
