Spice Girls: Britain’s Greatest Export And Gift To The World | “If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends…” Remember that song? That’s right, “Wannabe” was probably the very first song that I’ve heard from them. The Spice Girls weren’t the first ever female group to experience success. However, they are the first female group to ever experience this type of worldwide success. Hey, best-selling female group of all time. Respect!
