The Knowles family encouraged their daughter to form a music group with her friends LaTavia Roberson, Kelly Rowland, and LeToya Luckett.
Luckett and Roberson began to push for replacing Mathew Knowles with outside management, claiming he favored his daughter and was keeping too large a share of the profits.
Luckett and Robertson quickly found themselves booted out of the group.
Destiny's Child named their third album Survivor as a nod to joke about them "voting" members "off the island" after the departure of Luckett, Roberson, and Franklin from the group.
Beyonce's father decided to take over as manager of the group, and added LeToya Luckett.
