Wham!consisted of an English pop do consisting of George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley, formed in London in 1980 after the breakup of their first band, The Executive. They became one of the most commercially successful pop acts of the 1980s, selling more than 30 million certified records worldwide from 1982 to 1986. The duo were influenced by funk and soul music and presented themselves as disaffected youth.
There was a change in their image for their second album,“Make it Big.” Under the advisement of Ridgeley, they moved on from their leather-wearing, angry, and somewhat political sound to a fluffy, flashier, friendlier pop sound. Image won over substance with the popularity of MTV, and“Make it Big” went gold in the United States.
