After signing with Virgin Records, they released their first single Wannabe, which hit first place on the UK charts and became an iconic pop song at the time. From many of their legendary songs in the Spice album to 2 Become 1, the 5 girls - Mel B, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Melanie C, and Geri Halliwell, gained prominence and became wealthy beyond their wildest imaginations.
Although Spice Girls is no longer reuniting as a pop band right now, it is still considered one of the most commercially successful girl groups of all time.
