All Music Guide:

The female vocal quartet En Vogue was conceived and put together by the production team of Denzil Foster and Thomas McElroy, both former members of Club Nouveau. Foster and McElroy wanted a vocal group that could exude sultriness and intelligence in addition to vocal proficiency, and as producers, they wanted material that would fuse R&B and girl group traditions with hip-hop and new jack swing rhythms. En Vogue's 1990 debut album, Born to Sing, launched the pop crossover smash "Hold On." When En Vogue returned in 1992 with Funky Divas, critical and commercial response was overwhelming.
