Official Chart Flashback 2001: Destiny's Child - Survivor

They weren't going to diss you on the internet, but they were taking over the chart. This week in 2001, Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle – aka the third, final and definitive lineup of Destiny's Child – were celebrating their second chart-topper.

Survivor was Destiny's Child defiant recovery from a tough time. Two original band members had quit the year before, and a replacement member hadn't lived up to the band's high expectations, apparently after a problem with lost luggage caused friction between her and Queen B. They'd all but been written off, but a chart-topping theme song for the new Charlie's Angels movie, followed by this confident classic, let people know they were back in business.

Survivor sold 104,000 in its first week and was the band's last Number 1 together. Not that they're complaining, of course – their mama taught them better than that. It finished on 260,000 sales that year and 2001's 31st best-seller.

Survivor's total figure has grown considerably since then, currently at 760,000, including 40 million streams since records began in 2014.

Survivor is still a really great song dance.gif I think it's safe to say its in at least most peoples Top 3 Destiny's Child singles too. It definitely deserved the #1 that week despite really strong competition (although they fell to #2 the following week as S Club 7's Don't Stop Movin' debuted at the top !). It's a shame Emotion only made it to #3 in the UK it definitely deserved to be another #1 for them sad.gif
