Wannabe, originally released on July 8th, 1996, catapulted the Spice Girls to global stardom. 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.
Furthermore, Wannabe 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.
The new EP includes the original single, an in-demand remix by Junior Vasquez (originally a bonus track on the 1996 2 Become 1 CD Single), the original demo recording, and Feed Your Love, a demo of a previously unreleased ballad written by Spice Girls and "Wannabe" co-writers Richard Biff Stannard and Matt Rowe.

Here’s the story from A-Z ...!
After their iconic 1996 debut single Wannabe topped the charts in 37 countries, 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.
The girls have gone on to sell 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.
This quite brilliant 25th Anniversary 4-Track Picture Disc opens on the well known Wannabe (Original Radio Edit - 2:53) and backs it up with the drum and synth-laden, funky Caribbean-flavored Wannabe (Junior Vasquez Remix Edit - 5:57).
Flip this beautiful picture disc over and the next track is the Previously Unreleased Wannabe (Demo - 2:58), where everything is toned down, both the beats and their singing, and then the 25th Anniversary vinyl is rounded out with Feed Your Love (4:36), another Previously Unreleased song that features Mel B’s quieter, soulful R&B balladry vocals at their finest.
