TOP FIVE MOST POPULAR GIRL GROUPS OF ALL TIME

Here comes our first Top Five List for June. But before we proceed, I just want to inform you that I'm going to make series of Repost starting this month. I'm trying to sort out my Top Five List and divide them into separate categories. This is an ideal way too to refresh my previous entries for the past four years. Though, I also prepared some new entries for this month too.

A girl Group as what the term suggests, is a popular music act featuring several young female singers who generally harmonise together. Girl groups emerged in the late 1950s as groups of young singers teamed up with behind-the-scenes songwriters and music producers to create hit singles, often featuring glossy production values and backing by top studio musicians. In later eras the girl group template would be applied to disco, contemporary R&B, and country-based formats as well as pop. Listed below are five of the most popular girl group in the music history.
