  1. On July 08, 1996, Wannabe was released in the UK as the debut single by English girl group Spice Girls under Virgin Records. Produced by Matt Rowe and Richard Stannard and co-written by the two of them along with all the members of the group, the dance-pop track was also the lead single off their first studio album Spice, with Bumper to Bumper as its B-side. The song became an anthem of female empowerment with lyrics that value the female friendship over a relationship with a man, setting the theme for all of the upcoming music from the group: Girl Power. Wannabe topped the charts in 22 countries, including the Billboard Hot 100, and it is the best-selling single by a female group worldwide. Also, according to a study published in 2014 by the University of Amsterdam in association with Manchester’s Museum of Science & Industry, Wannabe is the most recognizable pop song of the last 60 years. An iconic one-shot music video directed by Johan Camitz was filmed at the Midland Grand Hotel in London, and it was released in May of that year. It currently has over 500M views on their official YouTube account.
  2. Wannabe was released internationally 24 years ago today, Virgin intentionally planned the US market to wait for January of 97 so the girls could solely focus on the market for a good solid four months, this was a major key in breaking into our Notoriously difficult music industry. Many international acts refuse to do that now saying that they already established other places, if the US is a failure, then so be it. Wannabe was a huge success between 1996 and 97 the single charted at #1 a record 33 countries including the US. The song was the tenth biggest selling single in the US in 97. While the Album itself was the best selling album of 97 in the US. Wannabe caused a huge shift in the Uzs market. Before wannabe happened Record buyers were obsessed with acts like Alanis Morissette and serious song writers. Even Alanis in a 90s CNN special said: "Thank god for these girls cos even I got tired of my own music and me just being representing a genre (Grunge) that was already dying cos of The leaders untimely death. " Even Boy Bands NSYNC and Backstreet boys credits the Girls success in America for helping them breakthrough into their own home country. Still to this day. The backstreet boys wants to do A Spice Girls/BSB global stadium tour. Congrats to the girls for bringing pop music back to the forefront in the 90s and pioneering the teen pop movement before it became a thing in 1999. Here's the full CNN 90s Music documentary titled isn't it ironic.
  3. It just dawned on me How dirty and Adult wannabe is. Especially the rap. We all recited it. But as I got older. It's actually them telling the lover what they are like in bed.. "So here's the story from A to Z. You wanna get with me, you gotta listen to carefully. "We got Emm in the place, who likes it in your face, we got G Like MC who likes it on an Easy V doesn't (come) for free, cos she's a real lady and as for me.... ah you'll see. Slam your body down and wind it all around" That just basically telling us what they like to do in bed. Talk about Childhood ruined. Thx to the marketing. The follow up album "Spiceworld" was more kid friendly as it wasn't as ****** and "rude" as the British would call it. Read the album "Spice' lyrics" It was very grown up and adult. Now I understand why Forever was very ****** in nature. Their targeted audience were already exploring and enjoying thier sexuality as normal 16 and 17 year olds do. Though society frowns upon teens doing it. It's understandable why Spiceworld became kid friendly. The girls and their marketing team and Virgin records understood their biggest market was the pre teens and *** and sexuality was far from their idea of having fun. @JordanMiller @Roxxy
