Tell me what you want, what you really, really want! The biggest-selling girl band of all time, the Spice Girls, celebrates the 25th anniversary of its debut hit single, "Wannabe," in style by releasing an all-new limited-edition EP – “Wannabe25," which is available now via UMC / EMI.
"Wannabe," originally released July 8, 1996, catapulted the Spice Girls to global stardom. The band’s team said, “A song that embodies empowerment, it is the most emblematic song of the band’s ‘People Power’ philosophy and a song that continues to be treasured through the generations.”
"Wannabe" has broken numerous records. It is the seventh-best-selling debut single of all time, with over 1.3 million CD singles and download sales, as well as the longest-reigning No. 1 by a girl group.
The new EP includes the original single, an in-demand remix by Junior Vasquez (originally a bonus track on the 1996 "2 Become 1" CD Single), the original demo recording, and "Feed Your Love,” a demo of a previously unreleased ballad written by Spice Girls and "Wannabe" co-writers Richard 'Biff' Stannard and Matt Rowe.
Here's the Story From A-Z
After their iconic 1996 debut single "Wannabe" topped the charts in 37 countries, Spice Girls' debut album, “Spice,” went on to sell more than 31 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling album of all time by a female group. The girls have gone on to sell more than 90 million records around the globe, releasing three studio albums and 11 singles and winning a host of awards, including a BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music.
