When it comes to naming any of the first female innovators of Hip Hop, Salt-N-Pepa had better be on that list. The New York duo (trio if including DJ Spinderella) blasted onto the music scene back in 1985. They were one of the very first all female Hip Hop groups and shot up the charts with their infamously classic hit, “Push It”.
Over their career span, they went from underground emcees to becoming an influential powerhouse within the pop realm with songs like “Let’s Talk About Sex” and the En Vouge featured, “Whatta Man”. After a lengthy hiatus from 2002 to 2007, the ladies returned to the spotlight and this time, it was for their very own show on VH1 entitled, “The Salt-n-Pepa Show”.
After reuniting and performing on numerous tours and awards shows, the ladies dropped some new music. During that time frame, the “Big Girls” single surfaced. The tune is an ode to all the boss ladies out there. Performed in true Salt-N-Pepa fashion, the duo exchanged verses in their confident bravado. The song finally found itself in the remix world with a Wiz mix that placed the song over a vintage Hip Hop based instrumental.
