En Vogue, Soul Flower

En Vogue experienced enviable success from their first single, "Hold On," and went on to become one of the most recognized girl groups of all time. By their fourth album, however, original member Dawn Robinson left, and by their fifth, Soul Flower, Maxine Jones was gone as well. The last two original members, Cindy Herron and Tracy Ellis, recruited Rhona Bennett, but the independently released album failed to produce any singles that charted. Nine years later, the original members are now embroled in a legal battle over who can use the name.
