Boom Daily 80's Throwback- Pebbles "Girlfriend"

Decades before Taylor Swift's make up and break up anthems were even a possibility, teen girls of the 80's had Pebbles to provide their soundtrack. Back in 1987 Pebbles was actually dating Antonio "LA" Reid (who eventually went on to become a power house in the music industry) who was still performing with Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds in the band, The Deele. Pebbles had a huge hit with "Girlfriend", which encouraged women to crawl out of those lousy relationships and The Deele provided backing vocals and also appeared in the video which had major play on MTV. "Girlfriend" reached number 5 on Billboard's Hot 100.
