Feed Your Love was thought to have never been released because it was consider too racy for their audience at the time, according to The Sun, but a short snippet of the ballad leaked on the internet back in 2016. 

Speaking of Wannabe25 and their #IAmASpiceGirl campaign, the band said: ‘The Spice Girls belong to everyone and that’s why we want to mark 25 years of Wannabe by celebrating our incredible fans’.

Wannabe was originally released on 8th July 1996, and catapulted the Spice Girls to global stardom.

Their iconic track topped the charts in 37 countries and 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 Number 1 by a girl group.

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. 

Putting the band’s much-loved and dedicated fans at the heart of the action, the campaign will be a global celebration of the pioneers of people power.

The band are inviting all fans to take a trip down memory lane and share their stories to be featured on the Spice Girls website and socials as part of the celebration. 

There is a Spice Girl within all of us, and their rise to fame was a story lived by millions of us around the world…it’s time for those stories to be told. Fans can send in their videos and messages via socials using the #IAMASPICEGIRL or send to spicegirls@umusic.com

The 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.

Since then, the girls have sold 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.
