Hip-hop trio Salt-n-Pepa, famous for taboo-shattering songs like Push It & Let's Talk About Sex, are more Rihanna's predecessors than Nicki Minaj's. The girls of Salt-n-Pepa are practically the godmothers of SWAGGER. Though they marked their early career with songs about female empowerment, Shoop, a funky, flirty, man-crazy track, became their first Top 5 hit on the Billboard charts in 1993 (not a surprise). All cynicism/sexism aside, Shoop is a fantastic throwback track to the delicious days of 90s RnB-infused hip-hop-POP. It is worth noting that even while licking their lips at enticing men, Salt-n-Pepa were nearly always ahead of their time; how many female DJs are rocking our charts in 2012?
