Girl Power: 1990's

Now that we've gone through the 1960's, 70's and 80's it's time to start on the girl group renaissance, the 1990s! Kicking off the decade with their 1990 debut album was Wilson Phillips. Topping the charts, getting nominations for multiple awards and selling over 10 million copies, this trio of ladies started off the pop girl group trend of 90's.

A large number of the all girl bands from the 90's continued to move more towards the hard rock and punk end of the spectrum in attempts to get away from the cute chicks with instruments mindset that still plagued them. 

During the 90's the R&B and Hip Hop scene exploded, for both male and female artists. Girl groups in this music genre grew like crazy but at the top of the pack were groups like TLC, En Vogue and Destiny's Child. These ladies saw multi millions in album sales, chart topping tune after chart topping tune and they helped to bring R&B to the mainstream.

This was also a time of another British Invasion. Which was led by one of my favorite bands, The Spice Girls! Other bands like B*Witched and Eternal hopped the pond as well but didn't have anywhere near as much success as the Spice Girls.
