The Spice Girls are releasing Forever, their third and final album, on vinyl for the very first time. It will coincide with the underrated R&B experiment’s 20th anniversary, arriving on November 20. What can you expect from this glorious reissue? According to the press release, “the vinyl will feature a gatefold sleeve, four collectable art prints and artwork specially re-created for this vinyl release.” I’ve always had a soft spot for SG3, so I’m definitely adding this to my collection.
While Forever didn’t match the record-breaking success of the super group’s first two albums, it still sold a very respectable four million copies worldwide and delivered the mega-hit “Goodbye.” However, that ballad was something of an outlier on the opus. The rest of the tracklist is comprised of R&B bangers produced by Darkchild and Jam & Lewis. Of those, “Holler” is the standout. The world wasn’t ready for the Spice Girls to drop a racy bedroom anthem, but it has become a cult classic over the years. Revisit that banger below.
