Destiny's Child is the self-titled debut album of R&B group Destiny's Child, released through Columbia Records on February 17, 1998. It features the singles "No, No, No" and "With Me". It won the Best R&B/Soul Album of the Year at the Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards.

It was certified Platinum in the US after selling 1 million copies. It spent twenty-six weeks on the US Billboard 200 chart. As of 2002, the album has been out of print and it's considered a rare item.


John Bush of the website Allmusic graded the album with four out of five stars and wrote that "Destiny's Child isn't quite just another debut R&B album from an R&B girl group... Their voices sound beautiful together. Still, much of the album sounds indistinguishable from all the other girl groups out there."
