En Vogue is an American R&B girl group whose original line-up consisted of Terry Ellis, Dawn Robinson, Cindy Herron, and Maxine Jones. Formed in Oakland, California, En Vogue members began their musical endeavors in 1989. After immediate success of their first album "Born to Sing", they went to redefine imagery of female groups. En Vogue was launched further into mainstream recognition following the 1992 release of their best-selling second album, Funky Divas, which contained the number-one singles "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)" and "Giving Him Something He Can Feel". Despite critical and commercial success, the group was plagued by poor management and legal turmoil, as Robinson attempted to split from the group in 1997, followed by Jones in 2001.
Both Robinson and Jones were soon replaced with Amanda Cole; however, in 2003, Cole left and was replaced by Rhona Bennett during the recording of their album Soul Flower. In 2005, the original members briefly united before departing again. In 2009, the original members once again reunited for their "En Vogue: 20th Anniversary". Shortly after the tour, Robinson and Jones departed from En Vogue to pursue solo careers, with Bennett rejoining the group as a trio.
En Vogue has sold more than 20 million records worldwide to date. Billboard magazine ranks the group as one of the greatest musical groups of all time, the eighteenth most successful artist/band of the 2000s. The group has won more MTV Video Music Awards than any other female group in its history, a total of seven, along with five Soul Train Awards, six American Music Awards, and seven Grammy nominations.
