"Say My Name" won the 2001 Grammy Award in the categories of Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal and Best R&B Song. The song was also nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award in the categories of Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year.
This limited-edition release of WRITING'S ON THE WALL includes 21 tracks by R&B trio Destiny's Child.
This release has an extra disc featuring four additional songs.
With their second album, Writing's on the Wall, Destiny's Child still suffers from slightly uneven songwriting, but it's nevertheless an assured step forward for the girl group. Not only are they maturing as vocalists, they are fortunate to work with such skilled, talented producers as Kevin "Shekspere" Biggs, Rodney Jerkins, Dwayne Wiggins, Chad Elliot, Daryl Simmons, and Missy Elliott, who all give the quartet rich, varied music upon which to work their charm. So, even when the album fails to deliver memorable songs, it always sounds alluring, thanks to the perfect combination of vocalists and producers. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Vibe (9/99, p.272) - "...[a] winning sophmoric disc....funky, beat-savvy tunes guaranteed to offend certain fellas as the battle of the sexes rages on..."
