The Spice Girls are an English all-female pop group, formed in London in 1994. The Spice Girls, consisting of: Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell signed to Virgin Records and released their debut single, "Wannabe", in 1996. The song went on to spend seven weeks atop the UK Singles Chart and helped establish the group as an "international
phenomenon" who went on to release three studio albums and ten singles, selling in excess of 55 million records world wide.
The group embraced merchandise and became a regular feature of the British press. Each member of the group was given an alias by Top of the Pops Magazine in 1996, aliases which were adopted by the group and media alike. According to biographer David Sinclair, "Scary, Baby, Ginger, Posh and Sporty were the most widely recognised group of individuals since John, Paul, George and Ringo", stating that the group was "a social phenomenon that changed the course of popular music and popular culture".
They released three studio albums and went their separate ways in 2001 (a break-up was never formally announced) to focus on their solo careers. On June 28, 2007, they reformed and are now releasing a Greatest Hits album that will be accompanied by a World Tour.
