Salt 'N' Pepa

Salt 'N' Pepa

Profile:
Successful pop-rap group from the U.S.

In the mid-'80s Cheryl "Salt" James met Jamaican-born Sandy "Pepa" Denton, both working at Sears in New York City. Another co-worker Hurby Luv Bug was studying record production at the Center of Media Arts and asked Cheryl and Sandy to record for him as a class project. This resulted in the single "The Showstopper" (an answer record to The Show) in late 1985 and reached no. 46 on the Billboard R&B chart.

In 1986 they signed to Next Plateau Records, recruited female high-school student-DJ named "Spinderella" and adopted the stage name Salt'N'Pepa.
Their first album languished until DJ's began playing "Push It" in 1987, sending it to no. 19 and pushing the record to platinum sales, resulting in their international breakthrough.

Sandra left the group in 2001, and they officially disbanded in 2002 and reformed in 2007.
