Victoria Beckham has spent the past decade or so focused on her fashion empire — and she’s ready to sing again!
Beckham returned to music during a brief Carpool Karaoke-esque ride with James Corden as a part of a Late Late Show reboot of the 1987 film Mannequin. The late night host took on Andrew McCarthy’s role while the designer embodied Kim Cattrall’s part. During the bit, Corden and Beckham belt out the lyrics of the 1997 hit “Spice Up Your Life.”
On Wednesday, the 42-year-old style star showed fans on Snapchat a behind-the-scenes sneak peek of her TV appearance. “We are here about to film Carpool Karaoke!” she said, turning the camera on Corden.
Beckham, of course, first found fame as a singer as one of the five members of the Spice Girls. The group — who released their first single, “Wannabe,” in 1996 — is the best-selling female group of all time, with over 80 million records sold worldwide. Posh — as she was known in the group — is the first Spice Girl to take a ride in Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. She’ll join a long line of music stars to star in the segment, including (among others) Adele, Elton John, Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, Gwen Stefani, Mariah Carey, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez and Bruno Mars.
After the Spice Girls, Beckham attempted to launch a solo music career — with a self titled debut album released in October 2001. Despite three singles — “Out of Your Mind,” “Not Such an Innocent Girl,” and “A Mind of Its Own” — the album never hit in the U.S. market. Follow-up records in 2002 (Open Your Eyes) and 2003 (Come Together) were planned but never released. Her finale single, released in the U.K. in December 2003, was “Let Your Head Go” / “This Groove.”
