It turns out black chokers aren’t the only 90’s trend making a comeback. Any 90’s betch can proudly sing the entire “Wannabe” song and do the rap part better than the Spice Girls themselves, and it turns out the hype is still real.
It’s been a full two decades since the Spice Girls came out with “Wannabe,” and the music video that was played on our pink desktop Macs throughout junior high was just made into a campaign video for international gender equality. The video was remade by Project Everyone as a part of the Global Goals, a UN initiative of 17 goals.
The video is filled with female artists from around the world, like betchy Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez and a British hip-hop group called M.O. The singers and dancers advocate for equality in education, job opportunities, and to end violence against women. Basically, we can’t stop watching. Like, could there literally be a betchier combo than the Spice Girls and worldwide girl power?
Turns out the Spice Girls themselves are totally fan-girling over the remake too. Melanie C, or Sporty Spice as you may know her, posted the link on Facebook on Tuesday, with the caption, “So flattered and honoured that our crazy song is being used so beautifully for such a great cause.” Victoria Beckham, or Posh Spice (duh), followed up with her own status that stated, “20 years on—Girl Power being used to empower a new generation. I’m so proud of The Global Goals.”
The video ends with the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant, so let’s get that shit trending.
