Destiny Fulfilled is the reunion album of the trio Kelly Rowland, Beyonce, and Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child after three years apart. The album was a fasttrack where it was claimed to be written in three weeks time only, which is an achievement of the group. The last studio album for the group, this reiterates that their destiny of being together has been fulfilled where next stop is to go on their own as solo artists.
Released on November 15, 2004 under Sony Urban/Columbia Records a world tour, sponsored by McDonald's, made Destiny Fulfilled hit 16 countries and over 75 cities worldwide, kicking off in Hiroshima, Japan on April 9, 2005, and ending in Vancouver, Canada; stops included Australia, Europe, and the U.S. and Canada.
Where in most of the albums Beyonce took control, in this album they showed equality as Beyonce no longer assumed central position. But instead higlighted the other two of the trio - Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. All of them contributed to the song tracks as well as co-produced the album.
"Lose My Breath" the album's first single, became the group's ninth Top 10 Hot 100 hit. The album saw the trio shift to a harder, 'urban' sound and was released in November 2004. There was a lot of accompanying photography and posters promoting the album.
In terms of vocals, on almost all tracks, they are divided evenly as Beyonce and Kelly Rowland do a verse each and Michelle Williams does the bridge or the third verse. The second single, "Soldier" featuring rappers T.I. and Lil Wayne quickly entered the Top 10, peaking at No.3 in February 2005 becoming the groups tenth Top 10 hit.
Overall, the album did not win any of the Grammy awards for which it was nominated. During this time, Destiny's Child was named the Best Selling Female Group of All Time by the World Music Awards on 2004.
