A fandom divided!
On Tuesday evening, the first song from the Spice Girls‘ spinoff trio leaked online and it’s getting met with mixed reviews. Oof!
As you surely know, fans of the iconic ’90s girl group were sent into a frenzy this summer when Mel B, Geri (Halliwell) Horner, and Emma Bunton revealed that they’d be reuniting as a threesome called GEM. However, after one pregnancy announcement and a shady interview, it seemed as if the reunion tour might be on hold for awhile.
Nonetheless, hope was restored once again when GEM’s Song For Her began circulating online. Unfortunately, fans aren’t necessarily loving the new track as they’ve since taken to Twitter to voice their opinions on the matter.
Be sure to ch-ch-check out the new single for yourself (below) AND take a peek at the VERY mixed reactions (also below)!
It appears as though countless Spice Girls fans aren’t sold on the reformed group as many of them posted:

The leaked Gem/Spice Girls song isn’t great but my 8-year-old gay-as-shit self is LOVING it

Well I like the Spice Girls GEM tune. Even though 5 Become 3 it’s still giving me everything I need for now.
