Salt-N-Pepa and En Vogue Shut Down the 2018 Billboard Awards-Ashly E. Smith
Salt-N-Pepa's here! Formed in 1985, Salt-N-Pepa is one of the first female Hip Hop groups, and has become one of the most prolific acts in Hip Hop history. Consisting of Cheryl “Salt”James, Sandra "Pepa "Denton and originally, DJ Latoya Hanson, who was replaced by Deidra Roper to become "DJ Spinderella,” Salt-N-Pepa remains a prominent staple in Hip Hop culture. Nostalgia was definitely in the air as the Queens, New York based trio took everyone back down memory lane. Introduced by Tyra Banks, Hip Hop's leading ladies opened with their hits "Shoop," "Let's Talk About Sex," and "Push It." Soon, the 90s hit making group En Vogue appeared to help the ladies deliver their 1994 smash "Whatta Man."
Throughout their three decade career, the Queens, New York based trio has won numerous awards, including a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 1995.
