Years of backflips, dancing, friendship, girl power, and of course… Singing along to “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls.

Yesterday, everyone’s favorite girl group celebrated the 25th anniversary of their debut single, “Wannabe”. From topping worldwide music charts, touring the world, backflipping across stages and teaching young girls the importance of female empowerment and friendship… The girls have nearly done it all. It is so crazy to think that it has only been 25 years since their debut single changed the world of pop music forever.

The girls took to Instagram to celebrate “Wannabe”’s 25th birthday by sharing old photos and memories to their millions of fans and followers:

“I remember seeing this picture on a poster for the first time in Finchley next to my favourite chicken shop and I knew this was gonna be something very special! 💗” - Emma Bunton

“25 years! Can you believe it?! With the help of our amazing fans this song catapulted us on our incredible journey, so much love and thanks to you guys today, the wonderful Matt and Biff, and my darling Spice Girls ❤️ So many memories! The Strongroom, St Pancras, those stairs! And backflipping all over the World! Happy Birthday Wannabe! Can't wait until we Zig a zig ahh again!!!” - Melanie C

“The first picture was taken in my back garden on a Sunday - we were all listening to the radio together that day we went to number 3 in the charts!!” - Geri Halliwell

To think the girls have been in the game for 25 years completely blows our mind! Their songs continue to inspire, empower, and bring joy to our daily lives... and we couldn’t be more grateful!
