The Black Rose: Girl Groups Through the Ages

2 min read

OK, I cheated, most of the artists here aren’t “girl groups” in the traditional sense.

A lot of them are duets or soloists with more female vocalists behind them. Those were my only requirements for this mixtape. As long as the vocalists were primarily female (rather than female-fronted bands with male musicians), I included them.
