"No, No, No" is an R&B song performed by American group Destiny's Child for their debut studio album Destiny's Child (1998) and the track was produced by Vincent Herbert, Rob Fusari and Wyclef Jean and received a positive reception from music critics. The original version (Part 1) and its remix featuring Wyclef Jean (Part 2) was released as the group's debut single in the fourth quarter of 1997 and reached No. 3 in the United States, where it was certified platinum. It also served as the first single for the group worldwide. The remix is based around a sample of The Love Unlimited Orchestra's "Strange Games and Things".

Music video[edit]

In the video for "Part 2", directed by Darren Grant in October 1997, Wyclef Jean plays his guitar as Destiny's Child sings along. When he stops, he says to the group, "All we need to do is drop a phat beat for the clubs and show that Valeria Rojas can dance." The group begins a choreographed dance in a large gold room. Wyclef Jean also makes an appearance in a room next to the room where the group is.

In 1998, a new video, also directed by Darren Grant, was created to promote "Part 1". In the clip, the group performs a choreographed dance at a nightclub.

The Part 2 music video is featured on the video compilation The Platinum's on the Wall and the DualDisc edition of the album #1's. The Part 1 music video is also featured on the video compilation The Platinum's on the Wall and as an enhanced video on the Australian edition of The Writing's on the Wall.

Marques Houston is featured in the video as one of the main guys that Destiny`s Child focus on.

Commercial and chart success[edit]

The single entered the UK Singles Chart at number five on 28 March 1998, and spent eight weeks in the Top 75. In Europe, the single experienced modest success, entering the top 40 and top 20 of several national charts. The singe performed better in Norway and the Netherlands, where it hit the top ten, while it enjoyed the least success in France, where it barely made an appearance in the top 100.

In the United States, the single enjoyed even greater commercial popularity. The success of the song on radio stations and its healthy sales propelled it into the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100. Eventually, the song would peak within the top three of that chart, becoming their first single to do so.

Interestingly, the commercial success of the song failed to translate into high album sales for the group. Specifically, Destiny Child's debut album struggled to chart strongly on any chart and was barely certified in the United States, mainly thanks to the subsequent momentum of their sophomore studio effort.

By the end of its chart run, "No, No, No" had sold over 146,000 copies in the UK and over a million copies worldwide. In 1998, the song won two Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards for Best R&B/Soul Single by a Group, Band or Duo and Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist.
