Group leader Beyoncé Knowles wrote it after reading a review comparing the member changes to the TV series Survivor, which debuted in 2000 and was a sensation when this song was written. Beyoncé says that this song was a defining moment in the career of Destiny's Child, as with their success also came a great deal of negativity. The criticism encouraged her to "write them out of the negativity," which is how she came up with this song. This won the 2001 MTV Video Music Award for Best R&B Video.
