Of all the iconic Spice Girls hits, Wannabe is the one that made the biggest statement.

Released way back in 1996 (yep, twenty years ago), it was the bands first single, first music video and their first taste of the crazy world of fame.

We know every word, every dance move.

Wannabe also gave US our very first taste of what the Spice Girls were all about – sweet, sweet girl power.

So nearly twenty years on from the song’s release, it seems fitting that a remake of the now iconic video should be released to the world. This time round, it’s about inspiring a new generation and highlighting the fact that women still have a way to go in terms of equality.

The video is the hallmark of Global Goals Campaign’s ‘#WhatIReallyReallyWant’ movement, shedding light on the issues that still affect young women across the globe such as domestic violence, lack of education, the gender pay gap and child marriage.

The cast in the video remake include Sri Lankan Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez, Nigeria's Seyi Shay, South Africa's Gigi Lamayne and Monoea, the United States' Larsen Thompson, the U.K.'s M.O. and Canada's Taylor Hatala.

It also features A LOT of those nineties dance moves that we all know oh so well.
