''Hold On" is a song by American girl group En Vogue. It was released in early 1990 as the lead single from their debut album Born to Sing (1990).

Following its release, the single peaked to #1 one on the Billboard Hot R&B Singles, #2 on Billboard Hot 100, and #1 on Billboards Hot Dance chart. "Hold On" was also a huge hit in several countries, reaching the top five or top 10; #5 in the UK, #5 in New Zealand, #6 in Germany, #10 in the Netherlands, and #12 in Austria.

In 1990, the single became one of the biggest hits in the US and overseas. "Hold On" reached No. 1 on the Billboard Year-End chart for 1990 as the top R&B hit, and as the No. 8 pop hit on the Billboard Year-End chart.

My favourite En Vogue single, even though I think many prefer Don't let go (love) (their biggest hit) over this.

I'm surprised that Hold On did so well in Europe. It's a great song. Don't Let Go will always be my favorite though.

Love it! Aesthetically, I don’t think they’ve ever sounded this ghetto again until “Whatever” (unless you count “Whatta Man”).

Such an amazing intro.

Favorite song is My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It) though.

How they dance to this especially with the fierce intro is everything! 8-) 8-) 8-)

They were basically the template of 80% of the nineties R&B girl groups!

Iconic sisters! :cry: :cry: :cry:
