2016 was supposed to be the year of an epic Spice Girls reunion to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut. Fans imagined a tour, a televised concert, or some other worthy reassembly of the original five-piece. Busy schedules and cold feet kept Victoria Beckham and Melanie Chisholm from rejoining Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Melanie Brown to commemorate the milestone. That’s how “GEM” (Geri-Emma-Mel) became a thing over the summer.
The trio have spent some time in the studio, and a song titled “Song for Her” leaked this week. It’s not clear whether the three-fifths majority of the Spice Girls intend to release an album, an EP or just some promotional singles to coincide with appearances. The group sounds polished and charming as ever.
