Girl band Girls Aloud held on to the number one position in the British pop charts with their awful rendition of The Pretenders' "I'll Stand By You." New in the chart this week (entering on number 4) is ex-Spice Girl and gay favorite Geri Halliwell with the seductive pop stomper "Ride It."
Sample Geri Halliwell "Ride It"
This is Halliwell's first new effort after a three year hiatus from the music scene. The single is taken from her forthcoming third solo album (due May 2005). She co-wrote the track with Swedish duo Quiz & Larossi and it has been produced by mixer Ian Masterson.
Halliwell has been able to maintain a fairly successful pop career after leaving the Spice Girls. She's vying for attention with Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton who is expected to release an album early next year [read my earlier report]. Sexy spice is not a terrible gifted singer or songwriter, but with her flirtatious persona and brash attitude she pulls off some worthy pop entertainment and another dancefloor hit.
