Amid rumours of a comeback tour, Spice Girls‘ new single as GEM has leaked online. Check out ‘Song For Her’ below.
Back in the summer, three of the five original Spice Girls announced a reunion of sorts as ‘GEM‘ – with Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Mel B all coming back together to mark 20 years of seminal hit single ‘Wannabe’.
They promised fans “we want to have a party, and when we do, you’re all invited” – and amid rumours of them headlining a huge show in London’s Hyde Park and reports that they were back in the studio working on new songs, now were have the first taster of their future material. The light and airy R&B tinged feel-good pop of ‘Song For Her’ has leaked online – complete with ‘Millennial whoops‘ and all. Check it out below.
Mel C refused to take part in the reunion as she believed they ‘reached their peak at the 2012 London Olympics’ – however she did also recently claim that she was ‘bullied’ during her time in the band in the ’90s.
“I’m not going to name names – but yes,” she said when asked if she was the target of abuse while in the ‘Girl Power’ sensation. “It’s been addressed, they were aware of what they’d done. They apologised.”
She continued: “Now I’m older, I’m a lot more confident and I will not be shat upon. But when I was younger I let people shit on me. What’s done is done but I’d have liked to have been a bit stronger,” she continued. “When we were kids we were so hard on each other and so determined to succeed that if anybody fell out of line they were quickly brought back in. That was quite a lot of pressure to live under.”
Successful fashion designer and entrepreneur Victoria Beckham meanwhile is said to be ‘too busy’ to take part in the reunion.
