Today in music history

In 1997, the Spice Girls became

the first group to top the British

charts with their first four

singles when the double-sided hit

Mama and Who Do You Think

You Are? went to No. 1. The

group began their run of hits

with their debut single Wannabe,

and followed it up with Say

You'll Be There and 2 Become 1.

Wannabe also topped the charts

in the U.S. and Canada.
