Producer Cainon Lamb laid the groundwork for Beyoncé's "Countdown" while listening to Boyz II Men. "The song, 'Uhh Ahh' starts with a countdown of '10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1,' Lamb explained. "Once the countdown was in the computer I sped it up a little bit. I put the snare drum taps to it and I started a beat." It was both kismet and prophetic. Destiny's Child opened for Boyz II Men 15 years ago. Also, Beyoncé professed her desire to expand her family when she sang, "I'm trying to make us three/From that two." In 2012, Beyoncé got her wish with the birth of Ivy Blue Carter.
