I think she's going for a more matured sound. Feel like she left the Ginger Spice days far behind her.Ewokguy15 wrote:It's a bit dull like all of her more recent stuff. Doesn't she remember she is Ginger Spice . . . Where is the sass, where is the sex!!!!
Don't get me wrong, I love her, but this latest single was a total bomb and there is no interest for her at all. She was SO good up until Passion.menime123 wrote:Warner have signed her, so clearly they will spend moneyBlueScorpion wrote:Is she still releasing music after bombing hard with HOM ?

She bombed recently with ‘Angels in Chains’ too...BlueScorpion wrote:Don't get me wrong, I love her, but this latest single was a total bomb and there is no interest for her at all.

What?MrLeonix wrote:Geri was my favorite Spice Girl, she seemed to be the leader or the one that stood out the most to me, as a kid I always had the perception that she was the one with the biggest hype among them and the one that media followed the most when they were in the group ..... However as a solo act I think she was never great or anything, those #1 UK hits she got where due to her fame and whole leaving the Spice Girls scandal hype at the time and not because her albums and songs were particularly great, actually her debut album wasn't much of a big thing in sales, Mel C even put bigger solo albums.
I don't think Geri will ever have a solid solo career to be honest.
Cool stats, but I just don't think her music was that good, her other post-debut albums were even worse. I think with her debut she just had the hype at the time, at some point she seemed to be the biggest star of the group when they were still together like she was the Beyonce / Justin Timberlake of the group. I think she could have pulled what Bey and Justin did and have a respectable solo career if she had actually released great music, but obviously that dull music was set to burn out fast, she seemed really lost without the Spice Girls and didn't prove to be as "brilliant" or "good" as people expected her to be in the long run.menime123 wrote:What?
Schizophonic was amazing - it’s everything the 3rd Spice Girl album should have been. Yes Mel C outsold it, but let’s not forget she was the ‘creditable’ one out of the 5 of them. Schizophonic sold double Forever and it’s double platinum in the UK. Geri was the media darling when she was solo, had 4 straight UK #1s and held the record for most #1s by a British female until Cheryl Cole got her 5th with I Don’t Care (which is quite nice - Geri was a judge on Popstars: The Rivals so helped discover her).Geri has the most solo #1s of the Spice Girls, the most solo top 10s and the biggest selling solo Spice single. She is also the only Spice Girl never to be dropped.
I agree she hasn’t much of a chance with a big chart career now, but Mel C manages to keep churning them out and selling tickets. Geri could do the same.
Hahaha .. Well I've noticed most hate that single and consider it among her worst. I personally like itmenime123 wrote:There not too much to love about a song that’s about bulimia, in fairness.

This is all we did so please no more messages comments on every social media post making my life a spicy hell.
The story is. I am a left of field song writer music producer that does not really play by the music industry rule book. Most people in the industry treat me like an unusual koala bear that they like to look at from afar because they're scared if they cuddle me I will bite them on their a&r noses.
This kind of koala bear can be good to work with successful artists who usually only get rule book producer song writers through the door who will do the same thing as the next guy.
I worked with Geri for a few weeks and she was excited that we were doing something new.
Warners though decided to go with a ballad about George Michael for a single, which I had nothing to do with.
To my furry ears what we were doing was kinda cool and had a bit of edge. But it is almost never about the music when it comes to major label decisions. So what'ya gonna do? I snap at Warners fingers annoyed that I had wasted a few weeks and I run up my tree and chew on my eucalyptus leaves.
