SALT AND PEPA TO CELEBRATE 30TH ANNIVERSARY ON BILLBOARD AWARDS
Salt-N-Pepa are set to perform at tomorrow’s Billboard Music Awards this Sunday to commemorate the 30th anniversary of them becoming the first female rap artists to hit the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Cheryl “Salt” James, Sandra “Pepa” Denton, and DJ Spinderella first debuted on the chart in 1987. The following year, their song “Push It" became the first rap song by a female act to hit the top 40 of the Hot 100, and it eventually climbed its way up to No. 19.
The 2018 Billboard Music Awards airs this Sunday, May 20, at 8 p.m. ET live on NBC.
