Such a modern classic. This was a UK #1 single & a worldwide smash - one of the best-selling singles of 2000. Released 15 years ago & it still sounds fresh today. Not to mention the futuristic video, which is fantastic, too.

I just thought to myself - if Melanie were to perform it on a high-profile show, who could do justice to Lisa's rap - maybe Nicki Minaj? Discuss! 8-)

Brilliant single, but I don't think Nicki should rap on this! :-? :-?

The yoga choreography with Mel C and Left Eye (during the latter's rap part) is so cool, it amazes me how two girls from the two biggest girl groups in the 1990s can create such a stellar collaboration.

Great song, feature and video. She always had the best material overall out of the girls. This might be my favourite solo single from a Spice Girl along with What Took You So Long.

In Europe it was a huge hit though.

Lisa Left Eye Lopes <3

This is Mel C's best single. Both video and lyrics are great.

No Scrubs should have been a UK #1 but I’m glad Left Eye snatched one. 8-)

The whole style of the music video still looks lit.

Lisa's verse on this>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>others' entire careers.
Lyrics & delivery are ace. Her writing skills and spitting game are unparalleled <3

This was my jam back then. Well, the whole Northern star record. An amazing body of work, tbh.

Nah, Onika is wack... Perhaps Lil Mama, who's wack too but can at least attempt imitating Left Eye's technique

This sounds so US calibrated, should have exploded there.
