Salt 'N' Pepa (also stylized as Salt-N-Pepa or Salt 'N Pepa) is an American hip-hop girl group formed in 1985. Group members included Salt (Cheryl James), Pepa (Sandra Denton), and DJ Spinderella (Deidra Roper). They were signed to Next Plateau Records and released their single "Push It" on March 8, 1987, which hit number one in three countries and became a Top Ten or Top Twenty hit in various other countries. Their debut album Hot, Cool & Vicious sold more than a million copies worldwide, making them the first female rap act to achieve gold and platinum-status. Their fourth album Very Necessary sold over 7 million copies worldwide (5 million of those in the US), making it the highest-selling album by a female rap act in history.

Links to Peel

Peel played tracks from the group's materials in the 80's, a time where female hip hop artists started to rise up in the field, but by the end of that decade, when Salt N Pepa achieved success, he had lost interest in them and looked for other upcoming artists. Despite this, he nominated their track 'Tramp' for his Peelenium 1986.
