Destiny's Child, Survivor

Destiny's Child attempted to be as discreet as possible with their member switching. Instead of a press conference, the ladies simply swapped out LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson for Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin in the video for "Say My Name," the third single off the group's sophomore album, The Writing's on the Wall. Just months after that, Franklin was gone as well and the three remaining members released the oh so apropos Survivor. Not a step was missed, however. That album debuted at No. 1, five spots higher than the previous.
