If you saw the breakup of Destiny's Child coming based on the title of their latest album, you were right on target.

"'Destiny Fulfilled' ... is not a coincidence," Beyonce told AP Radio in an interview. "This was something that we thought about. And it was really important for us to end this chapter when we were successful."

Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams recently announced plans to disband after their world tour ends in the fall. The Grammy Award-winning trio have had a string of hits, including "Bootylicious," "Survivor" and "Independent Women (Part I)."

"We don't like the word ‘breakup,'" said Beyonce. "We'd like to say that it's the end of a chapter in our lives."

Beyonce says the trio believes they're splitting up for the right reasons.

"Not because one person wants to go solo. Or not because we don't like each other. Or because we're not selling records anymore. But because it has to end at a certain point," the 23-year-old singer said.
