Salt-N-Pepa gave a feminine balance to the 1980s as the female answer to Run DMC’s commercial dominance. Consisting of Sandra “Pepa” Denton, Cheryl “Salt” James and later Deirdra “Spinderella” Roper, the group began as Super Nature. Their first song was “The Show Stopper,” an answer record to Doug E. Fresh’s “The Show.” Riding on the success of their saucy exchange, they changed their name to Salt-N-Pepa and released their 1986 album Hot Cool & Vicious, which yielded the hit song “Push It.” The group went on to become the best-selling female rap group and icons of their era.
