What En Vogue does best is creating a mosaic of hits in their unmistakable voices, re-setting the clock for female pop and R&B groups for more than a decade.
Since their 1990 debut they've released three full-length multi-platinum albums, one best-selling EP, and a slew of history-making videos that have carried the torch for the ever-fashionable look and sound of one of pop's most venerated and imitated institutions, the girl group.
Their acclaimed debut disc, 1990's Born To Sing, launched three consecutive #1 hits, including the memorable 'Hold On.' The album sold a breathtaking three million copies, christening the then-foursome as the new female force to be reckoned with. Their 1992 follow-up album, Funky Divas, is now considered a pop and R&B classic, and featured the unforgettable smashes 'My Lovin' (Never Gonna Get It)' and the dazzling 'Free Your Mind', with the video earning three MTV video award nominations. The album went on to sell more than three million copies and was nominated for five Grammy awards. With their audience clamoring for more, En Vogue released a six song EP in 1993, Runaway Love, which featured a cover of Salt N' Pepa's 'Whatta Man.' They also completed a sold out tour with superstar Luther Vandross, that included shows in England, Germany, the Netherlands, and France.
Family obligations saw the group take a break in 1995 (both Cindy and Maxine have children), but in 1997, their contribution to the Set It Off soundtrack, 'Don't Let Go (Love)' garnered them a #2 hit on Billboard's Top Singles chart. Soon after, Dawn Robinson left the group to pursue a solo career, and in May of '97 the girls released their third full length album EV3. They closed out the century with Best Of En Vogue, a greatest hits collection that capped their incredible first decade. In fact, Billboard magazine ranked En Vogue in the top 20 artists of the 1990's.
