Open your ears, listen to JUST the raps - one right after another, there's your cold hard fact. It shouldn't take a rocket scientist (altho apparently it does in this case) :death:

So basically a cop out answer seeing as you only have your opinion to back up your claim so everyone's opinion is their own.

it doesn't really matter, because simply put - you're still wrong. The rap's speak for themselves, some people are unable to tell the girls apart - others can.

I've just heard the other version for the first time ever and it's quite clear it's Mel B. It might confuse a bit on first listen, but just a little bit and not enough to think it's Geri. That's clearly Mel B's voice.

Why do people like you insist on bringing this topic up once a month. It's Mel B doing both raps - plain and simple. Shut the hell up and move on.

oh wow - sorry - i feel dumb! haha... i just listened to it, and it sounds like geri, but you're right - it probably really is Mel b. You seem like more of a pro than me - so I trust you. Sorry :)

Now, do this forum a big favour and bugger off and listen to your so-called Geri-rap on "Step To Me" :laugh:

there really is one! i will post it on youtube if i get a chance


No, there's not. There's never a GERI-Version Step To Me.
Stop fooling yourself. Get over it.

I'm so TIRED of hearing "It's Geri". I have the promo CD and also the Japanese Spice World, and the rap part of all versions on those CDs were sung by MELANIE SCARY BROWN.

I remember when people were arguing about this about a month or so ago. :D I listened to both versions then, and I have to say that I think it's Mel B on both as well. She just recorded the rap two times; one version is on the extended, the other on the regular version. That's my opinion anyways.

i'm not being cocky or anything but your opinion is just as good as everyone elses so dont state facts if you have not got substantial evidence to support your claims



I think the best way to make you understand the FACT is going to ask GERI yourself. She would open your ears with "It's MEL B".

Yeah, some people sure can't.
I really can't believe why people still thinks it's Geri.
IMO, the thing that really tells them apart it's the accent, they're completely different (it's noticeable even for a non native speaker like myself). If you download the song, it has a misleading title (Step To Me / "Geri's Rap"), I know that, but c'mon... You can be confused the first few times you hear it, but that's it.
It is and it's always been Mel B.

Why don't YOU share your "proof"? You can post it on youtube, most of the Spice Girls stuff on there is copyrighted so you can't use that excuse

Why hasn't someone uploaded the "Geri-version" onto youtube? Oh, that's right, because there isn't one!

I always thought that the rap was always done by mel b!

None of then even sound like geri. Maybe in the "who do you think i aaam!" bit. But always thought Mel b does the rap.
I prefer Mel b's rap because she does it better. Comparing to lovething Geri is a bit cheesy with her rapping!

I never knew that was geri! :dizzy:

Sorry!

With a debate like this it may have been true.

I've always thought all the raps were done by mel b!

It sounds as if they mixed Geri and Mel Bs voices, but Geri was never this fluid with her voice, so it's Mel B.

Geri never did the rap.

You're right, it's definitely Melanie B.

I'll say this, it's likely Mel B but it does NOT sound as harsh as it normally does when she sings it in other versions. She sounds oddly tame and pulled back on that version. I can understand why there is confusion. For a few seconds I did question it... but that's not Geri.

WTF, there is NO version with Geri doing the. LOL :dee:
You know you'll never be lonely,
No, you'll always be loved,
And maybe, you never need more than that.
But for the surplus that loves,
What's to become of us?
Does it even register on your conscience?

I can't believe this.
5 pages and 10 years arguing if it's Geri or not, when it's obviously Mel B.

Humm, guys! I rarely post here and I had never heard of these different versions until today. But I just went to YouTube now and there's a 35 second Step to me clip entitled "Step to me mystery solved" in which someone clipped together both Geri's and Melanie's rap version. Geri's voice is clear. I didn't post it here because I don't know how to, but anyone can type the abovementioned title and listen for themselves.

Like I said, I didn't know about this either.
