Spice Girls: Who is the best-selling SOLO Spice? Biggest hits away from girlband revealed
Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie C, Mel B and Victoria Beckham all tasted solo success away from the iconic girlband, with all except Victoria managing to hit Number One on their own steam.
But who is the most successful solo Spice? Who had the biggest-selling song away from the group?
According to Official Charts data released in 2017, the latter honour belongs to Melanie C.
Yes, the best-selling solo Spice Girls single is her collaboration with Bryan Adams, When You’re Gone – released in 1998.
The track reached Number 3 in the singles chart and has sold around three-quarters of a million copies.
But even though Sporty Spice may have the top honour, the Top 10 solo Spice hits list is dominated by Geri – who accounts for half of them.
She has It’s Raining Men at No2, Mi Chico Latino at No6, Lift Me Up at No7, Look At Me at No8 and Bag It Up at No10.
Melanie C pops up twice more in the Top 10: with Never Be The Same Again at No3, and I Turn To You at No5.
She is believed to be the biggest-selling solo Spice overall, with 20 million records sold worldwide away from the band. Halliwell is not far behind on 15 million.
Victoria Beckham is at No4 with Out Of Your Mind, her 2000 track with True Steppers and Dane Bowers.
And Emma Bunton sneaks in at No9 with What Took You So Long, her No1 smash from 2001.
Mel B just misses the top end of the list; though she is at No11 with her Missy Elliot duet I Want You Back, which hit No1 in 1998.
