These four acts have sold more than 150 million albums combined. They have kept themselves busy lately too. NKOTB recently returned to the stage, the first time in 2 years, at Fenway Park in Boston. Last year, Salt-N-Pepa received a Lifetime Achievement Award. Rick Astley has amassed a million YouTube followers and his music is just as popular now due to social media influence. En Vogue celebrated the 30th anniversary of their first album Born To Sing and just released a podcast.
