En Vogue “Funky Divas” CS (1992)
Details: En Vogue's second album, "Funky Divas," gave the trio a number one Billboard rated album and skyrocketed the group to acclaim and commercial success until the mid-2000s. The band members only recently returned to touring and success in recent years. Previously owned cassette, very good condition. The artist at the height of their early success.
Description: "It was the ladies’ second album, Funky Divas, that would cement them as a household name. Released on Eastwest Records, a part of the Warner Music Group, the album debuted twenty-five years ago, on Tuesday, March 24, 1992, and would go on to reach the Top 10 in the United States as well as the United Kingdom.
Funky Divas hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, and, to date, has been certified Platinum in Canada and the UK, as well as three-times Platinum at home here in the U.S. The bulk of the album’s commercial success was due to its catchy singles – namely “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It),” “Giving Him Something He Can Feel,” and “Free Your Mind” – though the 1993 “Whatta Man” duet with Salt-N-Pepa did not hurt the album’s sales at all.
Funky Divas was a collection of thirteen-songs that were produced to perfection with addictive choruses, beautiful harmonies, and offered a stunning homage to the great girl groups of the ’50s and ’60s. In a year that saw the eclectic likes of Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks, and Nirvana owning the charts, En Vogue were something completely left of center. Please remember, these ladies came before the Spice Girls, that shamefully fun spoof of a girl group who embraced girl power. En Vogue might not have trotted around in dayglo and platforms, but they definitely embraced the belief that ladies do it better!" - Cryptic Rock
