Given that it’s 20 years since the Spice Girls were unleashed on the world, it seemed only appropriate that the band would reform in some capacity to celebrate the momentous occasion.

It was, of course, announced that Geri Horner née Halliwell, Emma Bunton, and Mel B (that’s Ginger, Baby, and Scary) would be reuniting as a three-piece called GEM.

While no concrete plans are confirmed, and given that Geri is now pregnant with her second child (CONGRATULATIONS GERI!), it was revealed that the GEM had been in the studio working on new music. In fact, in July there was news that one particular song had leaked on to the internet. However, no music actually emerged.

Well, now a snippet of that song, “Song for Her” has appeared on Instagram and O-M-G it’s new music by (some of) the Spice Girls.

Speaking in July, Emma Bunton, who hosts a radio show in the UK, confirmed the song’s existence.

The track appears to be a female empowerment anthem, with pounding drums and totally has some of the Spice Girls magic.

Despite the fact that GEM want to do *something* to celebrate the band’s 20th anniversary, not every member of the Spice Girls is on board.

Victoria Beckham has repeatedly said that she has no plans to rejoin the band, and wants to instead focus on her fashion empire and her family. Likewise, Mel C has also said opened up about her decision to not return for the reunion.

Continuing, she said that she found it hard to turn down not only the girls but also the fans.

Given that the Spice Girls *did* reform back in 2012 for the London Olympic Games Closing Ceremony, we do have some recent memories of all five girls back together.

However, we totally get Geri, Emma, and Mel B wanting to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band, and, we’ll be honest, any new music from any members of the Spice Girls is exciting to us! As this old video shows, we need Girl Power more than ever.
