The Spice Girls have announced the launch of a new EP in honor of the 25th Anniversary’s celebration of the single Wannabe.

The hit song was originally released in 1996, on July 9th. It immediately became famous and Spice Girls received many certifications and awards, like Billboard Hot 100 and double Platinum by BPI. In 2020 was Spotify’s most streamed nineties song made by female artists.

Indeed, this dance-pop song embodies the female empowerment and the philosophy of the Girl Power and maybe that’s why right now it’s still famous worldwide. Also, the female friendship towards a bad relationship is a value promoted by the song and the group.

The famous group of Spice Girls was founded on 1994 as an “invented band” to fight all the boy bands present on the music market. However, they become a spread phenomenon and reached many fans and awards. Indeed, it is the best-selling album by a female group in history .

They were 5 women with given nicknames: Posh Spice, Sporty Spice, Scary Spice, Ginger Spice, Baby Spice. They break up in 1998 and reunited back in 2019 but without Victoria Beckham to make some reunion shows.

Wannabe25: contents and songs

The single Wannabe will be present in the new EP, but in three different versions: the original single, a remix made by Junior Vasquez and the original demo. Maybe is it because of being the seventh best-selling debut single of all time and thanks to the 1.3 million CD singles and download sales?

The remix was originally a bonus track on the 1996 “2 Become 1” CD Single.

Furthermore, there will be an unreleased ballad that the group wanted to share, called “Feed Your Love” written by Spice Girls and “Wannabe” co-writers Richard “Biff” Stannard and Matt Rowe.
