Music rivalries is also a thing in girlbands. From 1990s, there are girl groups who became rivals. Until, there are girl groups which the media is considering rivals.
En Vogue vs TLC
En Vogue is an R&B girl group of four who released their debut album in 1990. Since then, they had score platinums and multiplatinum albums. After two years, a younger and hipper group existed which is TLC. The latter group achieved more success when their second album “CrazySexyCool” was released, which became the second biggest selling girl group album according to reports. En Vogue though kept on scoring top ten singles. Still, TLC left a legacy which made them bigger stars.
Spice Girls vs All Saints
Spice Girls broke records and changed the pop scene in 1996. They became phenomenal and Spice mania has become known elsewhere. Their first two albums were big sellers. They scored total of 9 number 1 hits in a short time. Other girl groups came out like She Moves and Solid Harmonie came out after them. But the one who came close to them was All Saints. The girls debuted in late 1997 and worldwide success was achieved in 1998. They were big in UK then and internationally, however, success in the US is limited where they had at least one top ten hit. Clearly, All Saints’ international popularity were miles behind the Spice Girls, but at least they became the rival of the biggest pop act of their time.
Fifth Harmony vs Little Mix
Fifth Harmony and Little Mix was formed from the same show, but different countries. Fifth Harmony was formed from US version of X-Factor, while Little Mix was created by the UK version, the same with One Direction. They became rivals as fans are fighting in social media about who is the top girl group at the time. Fifth Harmony had top 5 album in the US and top 40 songs. Little Mix had top 10 albums there too. While in UK, Little Mix is way far more popular than Fifth Harmony. The verdict? Fifth Harmony is more popular in US, Little Mix takes UK. About who is bigger and better, it’s hard to say for now as nobody reached the Spice Girls level.
