The Spice Girls are an English pop girl group formed in 1994. The group originally consisted of Melanie Brown ("Scary Spice"), Melanie Chisholm ("Sporty Spice"), Emma Bunton ("Baby Spice"), Geri Halliwell ("Ginger Spice"), and Victoria Beckham, née Adams ("Posh Spice"). They were signed to Virgin Records and released their debut single "Wannabe" in 1996, which hit number one in 37 countries  and established them as a global phenomenon.

Their debut album Spice sold more than 31 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling album by a female group in history. Their follow-up album Spiceworld sold over 20 million copies worldwide. The Spice Girls have sold 85 million records worldwide, making them the best-selling female group of all time, one of the best-selling pop groups of all time,  and the biggest British pop phenomenon since Beatlemania. Among the highest profile acts in 1990s British popular culture, Time called them "arguably the most recognisable face" of Cool Britannia, the mid-1990s celebration of youth culture in the UK.


Measures of their success include international record sales, a 2007–2008 reunion tour, unprecedented merchandising, record-breaking achievements, iconic symbolism such as Halliwell's Union Jack dress representing "girl power", and a film, Spice World. The group became one of the most successful marketing engines ever,  earning up to $75 million per year,  with their global grosses estimated at $500–800 million by May 1998.  Under the guidance of their mentor and manager Simon Fuller, the Spice Girls embraced merchandising and became a regular feature of the British and global press. In 1996, Top of the Pops magazine gave each member of the group aliases, which were adopted by the group and media.

 According to Rolling Stone journalist and biographer David Sinclair, "Scary, Baby, Ginger, Posh and Sporty were the most widely recognised group of individuals since John, Paul, George, and Ringo". :ix With the "girl power" phenomenon, the Spice Girls were popular cultural icons of the 1990s. They are cited as part of the 'second wave' 1990s British Invasion of the US.
In 2016, Mel B, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell reunited and launched a new website called "Spice Girls - GEM".

Spice Girls - Viva Forever
Viva Forever





"Viva Forever" is a song by the Spice Girls from their second album, Spiceworld. The song was released on 20 July 1998 in the United Kingdom and received critical acclaim. The song also charted fairly well becoming the band’s seventh UK number one single gaining a Platinum certification whilst also topping the charts in New Zealand. The single was a commercial success despite the poor promotion.
An accompanying music video directed by Steve Box was released featuring the five band members as animated fairies that interact with two friends in a forest.

 The video was commissioned months before Geri's departure, and as such she appears in the video and the accompanying single artwork. The four remaining members performed the track on shows Top of the Pops and on the National Lottery television show. An adapted duet version was performed with Pavarotti at his annual charity event Pavarotti and Friends. The song was also performed live as a five-piece on their return concert tour, Return of the Spice Girls.

"Viva Forever" is widely considered as the best work of the Spice Girls in their career.  In the book "The Spice Girls Revisited" by David Sinclair it was confirmed by the co-writers/producers of the song Matthew Rowe & Richard Stannard that Geri Halliwell was the main songwriter of "Viva Forever".

Spice Girls - Stop


"Stop" is a song by the British pop group Spice Girls. It was written by the group members with Paul Wilson and Andy Watkins, the songwriters and production duo known as Absolute, at the same time as the group was filming scenes for their movie Spice World. "Stop" was produced by Wilson and Watkins for the group's second album Spiceworld, which was released in November 1997.

"Stop" is an dance-pop song with influences of Motown's blue-eyed soul, and features instrumentation from a guitar and a brass. The music video, directed by James Brown and filmed in Ireland, features the group in a traditional 1950s working class street and showed them playing with young girls in various children's games.

The song received mostly positive reviews from music critics, with many of them complimenting the Motown influences and production. "Stop" was performed by the group in a number of live appearances in Europe and North America including their three tours.

Released as the album's third single in March 1998, it peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart behind "It's Like That" by Run-D.M.C. vs Jason Nevins, ending the Spice Girls' streak of consecutive number-one singles in the on the chart at six. It was moderately successful internationally, peaking inside the top twenty on the majority of the charts that it entered.

In the United States, "Stop" peaked at number sixteen on the Billboard Hot 100 becoming the group's sixth consecutive top twenty on the chart. It was the group's last single that was released before Geri Halliwell's departure in May 1998 though it was not the last single to include her vocals.
