Babies born in the late 80s, and a few years after, had the the pleasure of being raised in the magical time known as the ’90s. It was the decade that had the most official R&B music, the freshest (or at least most interesting?) gear, the most crucial dance moves, and the most in-your-face technological advances (who wasn’t walking around with a Walkman and thick CD case?). It was the decade that popularized pagers, floppy disks, finger waves, and tape decks. You better recognize. Here are things you knew about if you grew up in the 90s.

The Girl Group At Its Prime

It was the decade when girl groups stopped playing nice, grew up and started to get fed up with lame a** men. They stopped singing their praises and ballads of longing, and they started having frank conversations about sex, relationships and life. These women switched the game up, and girl groups have been venting their frustrations ever since (See: “No Scrubs” and “Waterfall” by TLC; “Bug-a-boo” by Destiny’s Child; “Let’s Talk About Sex” and “None of Your Business” by Salt-n-Pepa ft. Spinderella).
