Undeniably, this week’s top Pop news came in the form of the comeback of one of the biggest selling group in history – the Spice Girls!
To celebrate the tour de force, From The Vault journeys back to the 90’s with their retro-sounding jam ‘Stop.’
A tribute of sorts to the Motown era, ‘Stop’ was written by the ‘Girls alongside production duo Absolute. It was released as the third single from their sophomore effort ‘Spiceworld’ in March 1998. This single is also infamous for breaking their consecutive streak of #1’s on the UK chart, after peaking at #2.
It was a Top 5 in both Canada and Australia as well as a Top 20 hit in the US.
For the song’s visual, the British belles took it to the streets of Dublin for a carefree affair.
The clip saw Scary, Sporty, Baby, Ginger, and Posh perform Supremes-like choreography but also interacting with the locals and later on performing at the town fair to wide acclaim.
Notably, it was their last video to be released that featured Geri Halliwell until their comeback as a five-piece in 2007.
This week marked the beginning of a new chapter for the Spice Girls. Once again a foursome, they’re about to embark on a mammoth UK stadium tour.
With the scheduled dates literally selling out in a matter of minutes as soon as they became available and the girls already adding extra dates, word is that 2019 will see the band expanding the tour to the rest of the globe.
Now that’s we call Spice World!
Welcome back, ladies!
