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.
