Remember Spice Girls? Well, if you are too young, let us clue you in. Spice Girls, as the name indicates, was an all-female English music group and the most famous British pop culture icons particularly in the 1990s. It seems like they are coming back! All the five members of the group – Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, and Victoria Beckham – are set for a 2018 reunion. According to The Sun, sources say Victoria Beckham was the only one who had “always been the person holding back on a reunion.”
Formed in 1994, Spice Girls rose to global fame with their debut single “Wannabe” in 1996. Their debut album released in the same year and became the best-selling one by a female group in the history. With sales figures of 85 million records, they are the best-selling female group of all time.
“The five of them have been locked in secret talks since the summer, and finally they are all on-board for a 2018 reunion. As it stands, they will be working together on a series of projects, which will include an album and a TV special celebrating the Spice Girls. And getting Victoria to agree has been a coup for everyone involved, given she has always been the person holding back on a reunion,” a source said.
“The fact she is on board now is down to how much closer the five of them have become recently. Things between them were quite icy at the start of the year. But gradually the ice thawed, and Mel was the one who drove that. Mel’s divorce battle also helped to bring them back together, as did the birth of Geri’s son. Plans at the moment are still in the early stages, and everything involving the girls tends to be complicated because they are so busy. It is not easy to get them all in the same place at the same time,” the source continued.
The last time all the members of Spice Girls were seen together was in 2012. In London Olympics, they performed “Wannabe” and “Spice Up Your Life” at the closing ceremony. Later in the same year in December, they reunited for the premiere of Viva Forever!
