Matthew Knowles Talks The Rise Of Destiny’s Child In New Tell-All Book “Destiny’s Child: The Untold Story”

#Beyonce’s father, #MatthewKnowles, is opening up about his experience managing hit former girl group #DestinysChild, Solange almost being added to the group and more.

Knowles, 68, still, to this day, claims he is the current manager of Destiny’s Child. Respectfully so, Knowles managed the popular band during its beginning stages, through its most successful years in the 90s and 2000s. Now, he is putting his journey as their manager into a tell-all book titled Destiny’s Child: The Untold Story, which will detail Destiny’s Child’s rise to fame and shares his insight on “managing, motivating, and maneuvering talented children through a resistant industry.”

The book was released last month, with an accompanying album, Destiny’s Child: The Untold Story Presents Girls Tyme and will include how Destiny’s Child began as the girls group Girls Tyme how they became a four-person Destiny’s Child with #LeToyaLuckett and #LaTaviaRobertson, and how the group, in the end, became Destiny’s Child with only Bey, #MichelleWilliams and #KellyRowland.

Along with Knowles’s personal anecdotes, the book will also feature interviews from the people who contributed to the group’s success through the years. In an interview with iHeartRadio, Knowles spoke about what fans will learn reading the book.

“It’s for that avid fan that really wants to know what happened. That’s really who I wrote the book for, those fans. I didn’t write it for people between the ages of 18 and 30. I wrote it for people who are 30-plus that actually were there with Destiny’s Child,” Knowles said.

He says he wrote the book after his cancer run-in. “After I had my cancer scare, it made me have a greater sense of urgency to get my story out on Destiny’s Child. There’s been so many innuendos and so many false stories about the path from Girl’s Tyme, which started back in ’92, that I wanted to set the record straight. And I have ten people that I interviewed, people that were there since day one, that knew the accurate story.”

The most shocking details of the book Knowles says details how #Solange, Beyoncé’s sister, and musical artist, almost was a Destiny’s Child.

“I talk about the strategies of Destiny’s Child for each one of the ladies to go in between each Destiny’s Child album with their solo album. And so, I talk about how Kelly got off of the game plan somewhat. And I also talk about the financial investment that I guarantee Kelly and Michelle didn’t even know I had to make so that they could have a solo career, and be successful with their solo career.

I [even] talk about Solange and how I wanted her to be a member of Destiny’s Child. I won’t say any more, but it goes into detail about that.”

Knowles says Beyoncé knows about the book. “I talked to Beyoncé about the book. I told her that I was coming out with the book. I didn’t really talk to Kelly and Michelle. I talked to them a while back and talked about all the things that I’m coming with, so I didn’t have to come back with one specific thing.” And at the end of the day, Knowles just wants his children to understand the sacrifices he made for them to be successful.

“I hope it actually makes them understand that sacrifices and the things that I did for them as a dad, and for them as their manager to make sure that they live a different life than I grew up. And to make sure that their kids live even a better life than they lived. That’s my hope, is not that I look and see what they’ve done for me, but that they look and see what I’ve done for them.”
