Modelled on iconic 1960s girl groups like The Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas and The Ronettes, En Vogue stormed the 1990s charts with a string of sassy, funky, R&B pop hits. Put together through auditions held by producers Denzil Foster and Thomas McElroy, the all-girl harmony group shot to fame when their debut single 'Hold On' became a number two hit in the US. Glamorously dressed, they emerged with the New Jack Swing style of glossy, sexy, contemporary soul and worked as an ensemble, each taking turns to duel vocally with their powerful, classic, gospel wails. Their second album 'Funky Divas' (1992) proved their biggest success reaching number four in the UK and producing US top ten hits 'My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)', 'Give Him Something He Can Feel' and 'Free Your Mind' and they collaborated with rappers Salt-N-Pepa on the huge hit 'Whatta Man' in 1994. The single 'Don't Let Go (Love)' became their last big success reaching number two in the US, but amid infighting and a change of management the band drifted apart. The original line-up reformed in 2008 with a performance at the BET Awards. Although initially a one-off performance to celebrate girl groups of the '90s, En Vogue announced that they were officially reforming and set out on a tour to commemorate the 20th anniversary of their debut album 'Born to Sing'. The band signed a new deal with Pyramid Records and began working on new material which turned into 'Electric Café', their seventh studio album, which they eventually released in 2018.
