RETRO CENTRIC// Destiny’s Child “No, No, No (Part 1)”Published by Justin Joseph on Tuesday, September 4, 2012 at 10:54 am.
When Destiny’s Child’s “No, No, No” hit the radio in 1997, few could deny it’s infectious chorus (who doesn’t love the effective use of repetition?). Produced by Vincent Herbert (yes, that’s Tamar Braxton’s husband), Rob Fusari and Wyclef Jean; the song reached number one on the Billboard R&B charts—giving the girls the first of their 11 top ten R&B hits. A remix—which became more popular than the original—dubbed as “Part 2,” featured Wyclef Jean, and a 15 year old Beyonce flexing a sped up vocal delivery that would later become her signature style.
While we all know how things turned out for the girls, the original line-up—Kelly Rowland, Latavia Roberson, LeToya Luckett, and Beyonce—is and will always be the BEST line-up (no disrespect to Michelle Williams…oh, and Farrah Franklin).
Because we love a good slow jam here at Centric, we opted to go with part one of the song…
ED NOTE: We’re wishing Beyonce a very happy 31st birthday!
