''I had this one track with a Stevie Nicks’ ''Edge of Seventeen'' guitar loop on it and that would become “Bootylicious.” I got a call from someone else who wanted to use it on a Bell Biv Devoe record, but I gave it to Mathew for Destiny’s Child. It had no lyrics, it was just the track. Then I talked to Beyoncé over the phone and she had the ''Bootylicious'' concept in her head.” She knew what she wanted to say.'' - Rob Fusari (producer)
''When I was cutting ''Bootylicious'', I definitely thought it was going to be a hit. Beyoncé was sitting sideways on the effects rack behind me in the studio, and we wrote the song in one sitting right there. She and Kelly would tap each other in singing the parts. Bootylicious” was a real-women, real-bodies type thing.''- Workman (engineer)
