FOREVER

i
Forever

Spice Girls third album "Forever" was a departure from the first two albums. Their first album without Geri & the girls worked with new producers which lead to a more R & B sound. Forever took the longest to record with tracks recorded upto 18 months before release. Recorded at Abby Road Studios, the album produced 2 UK #1 hit - Goodbye [Dec. 11, 1998] & Holler / Let Love Lead The Way [Oct. 23, 2000], The album had many incarnations - speculation in early 1998 was there would be a duet album - to a pop album - to changing direction completely into a R&B album when the girls worked with US producers Jam & Lewis and Rodney Jerkins. Worldwide sales of "Forever" are estimated at around 4,000,000.
