If The Walls Could Talk: Real-Life Events 'Writing's on the Wall' Lyrics Foreshadowed

It's been 15 years since 'Writing's on the Wall' was released and Destiny's Child didn't realize they foreshadowed their future. With songs that spoke to their fans, their music has transcended and is still relevant in 2014. Between the family drama and failed relationships, the revamped group's debut album's tracks have all come true in some form or fashion over the past 15 years. As we celebrate DC3's classic check out the 'Writing's on the Wall' lyrics that turned into real life events

"So Good"

"So Good" is Michelle William's response to Keyshia Cole's Superbowl remarks.

Quote she probably used:


"Bills, Bills, Bills" 

Kelly Rowland most likely played "Bills, Bills, Bills" on blast in her house days leading to her ending her relationship with her ex-fiance Roy.


"Confessions"

Confessions is Beyonce's father's theme song.


Bug a Boo

Beyonce's ex boyfriend that loves to do interviews about short relationship with Bey.


Temptation

All the men who lust over DC3, we know they don't give in to the game, but it does get tempting at times.

"Now That She's Gone"

Mathew Knowles probably tried to get back with Tina but she responded to his plea with the lyrics from "Now That She's Gone."

"Where'd You Go"

Beyonce and Kelly play this song to their husbands after they have a big fight.

"Hey Ladies"

Beyonce and Michelle probably played "Hey Ladies" when Kelly was in a relationship with her abusive ex.

"If You Leave"

Mathew Knowles' baby mother—and or potential one—probably gave him a lyrical ultimatum from "If You Leave."


"Jumpin, Jumpin"

After their "On The Run" tour, Beyonce is probably going to hit Jay with a line from "Jumpin, Jumpin" and head out for a night on the town with her gals.


"Say My Name"

"Say My Name" foreshadowed the elevator scandal between Jay and Solange. If the gossip is true, Beyonce was probably telling him to say her name on more than one occasion.


"She Can't Love You"

Tina Knowles played this song for her cheating husband when she found out about his indiscretions.

"Stay"

Beyonce's song she played on repeat when her and Jay Z were on the outs.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
