4 Non Blondes was a San Francisco-based alternative rock band that was active in the 1990s. They officially disbanded in 1994, one year after the tremendous success of their song “What’s Up.” Since that time, the one-hit wonder has been covered several times, even by other celebrities such as the well-known singer Pink, who gave a performance of the song in 2009 for the Coca-Cola Live at MTV event.

Christa Hillhouse, who played bass, Shaunna Hall, who played guitar, Wanda Day, who played drums, and Linda Perry, who sang lead, were the members of the all-female rock band that first got together in 1989. In 1991, there was a record agreement signed between the band and Interscope Records.

In 1992, when the band was in the process of recording their first album, titled “Bigger, Better, Faster, More,” Roger Rocha took up the role of the band’s guitarist place of Shaunna Hall. The album did not sell very well at first, but when they chose to release one of the songs from the album as a single, “What’s Up,” the song became a huge hit all over the globe. This helped guarantee that “Bigger, Better, Faster, More” sold a total of more than six million copies.

Despite this, the single “What’s Up” turned out to be a one-hit wonder since it was the only song that the band was able to achieve commercial success with. This was due to the fact that the band was unable to develop more songs because the lead vocalist, Linda Perry, opted to depart 4 Non Blondes in the year 1994.

Following Perry’s departure from the band, the band did not see any additional success; yet, Perry went on to do something remarkable. After removing herself from the spotlight, the former lead vocalist went on to become a renowned producer and composer. She collaborated with famous artists like Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, and Pink, among others.

One of the musicians that Perry has been collaborating with even recreated the song that was a one-hit wonder for her previous band.

There is a video below that shows the renowned artist Pink performing the classic song “What’s Up” from the 1990s. The performance took place in 2009 at the Coca-Cola Live event that was held at MTV.
