Musical groups like N’SYNC and Destiny’s Child, among many others, were wildly successful during their reign. One thing that almost all music groups have in common is that they have lead members. It’s rare for no one to be designated as the lead vocalist or frontman/frontwoman of the rest. We’re thinking of Justin Timberlake, Fergie, and many more. These leaders often veer off on their own and end in extended careers. Here are some of the artists who went solo and found more success independently than with their groups.

Fergie used to be the only female member of the Black Eyed Peas group. The Black Eyed Peas made a countless number of hits together, and Fergie was the glue that held them together. Will.i.am was also a vital member of the group, but Fergie had more of that “it” factor.

She parted ways with the band in 2006 as she released her solo album, The Dutchess. Since then, Fergie has married Josh Duhamel, had a kid and started her own clothing line.
