Flashback Soul: Salt-N-Pepa & En Vogue Rock “Whatta Man”

These ladies hardly need an introduction. Salt-N-Pepa of course paved new lanes in 90’s rap, and their sisters in En Vogue charmingly chided their suitors that they’re “never gonna get it!”

In 1993, the ladies combined forces on “Whatta Man,” a track originally recorded in 1968 by Linda Lyndell, then a support act for James Brown. Their delightful, groove-a-licious cover version reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was nominated in 1994 for the Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group.  So fire this up and get ready to bust a move!  Enjoy.
