Music Video Of The Day: Salt-N-Pepa Feat. En Vogue 'Whatta Man'

By Lisa White in Arts & Entertainment on Feb 13, 2014 11:30PM

February is Black History Month and while there are numerous events to celebrate in Chicago, we are going to take a daily moment to recognize some of our favorite exceptional black artists in music with our 'Music Video Of The Day' column this month.

If you were a girl growing up in the 90s, chances are Salt-N-Pepa and En Vogue were an integral part to your early female development. These ladies taught you to free your mind, date a guy who treats you right and to not get involved with the he said/she said crowd. Their music was full of female empowerment and owning your womanhood and sexuality, a topic that might have been a little advanced for my younger mind at the time, but it set a good foundation for the future. Salt-N-Pepa have still got it, as I 'pushed it' with a few thousand ladies who were having a great time when the trio performed at the 2010 Taste of Chicago.

Today we take a look at the hit track that saw the two powerhouse groups teaming up to deliver a rework of Linda Lyndell's "What a Man." If you've got a good man (or woman), make sure to give them props, because as the ladies of the 90s told us, good ones are hard to find.

Since you apparently can't watch music videos on television anymore, we'll showcase one here daily. There's no rhyme or reason, time or season, to which video we'll choose. Have a suggestion? Contact us at
