Right can we all calm down a little here. I can see why people may be confused as to who sings what as I admit I was fooled at first into assuming Geri sings the rap in the album version of Step to Me - and I'm a hardcore Geri fan. It's obvious that there's people confused on this subject, so can we debate it without throwing insults at each other!

How many more times are we going to have to have this discussion? :death:

I'm a gynormous Geri fan, but she doesn't rap in Step To Me. For the umpteenth time, there are two different vocal takes - OF MELANIE B - in this song. One is a bit faster, and used in the 7" mix, and the other is a bit slower and used in both the Extended Mix and the Japanese Album Version.

They are both Mel B. Geri doesn't rap in either..... :despise:

Seriously - Listen to the Love Thing rap by itself, and listen to Melanie and Geri play off one another. Then listen to the 7" mix's rap (Just the rap) - obviously Mel B, THEN listen to the Extended or Album version rap (JUST the rap), one right after the other - it's clear it's Mel.

I'd love to know which concert you went to, as Step To Me was only ever performed live as a five-piece in Istanbul and at TFI Friday. On both occasions, Melanie B performed the rap.

Just because your nan's friends with Mel C's mum and your iTunes says it's the Geri-version, doesn't mean it is. Geri doesn't perform the rap - fact. Stop fighting an invalid point before you look even more stupid.

Mel B is better with the rhythm up tempo. Geri seems like she's trying to keep up.

You mean trying to keep up with Mel B, who's the one doing the rap? Only Geri's mic is off, and they didn't tell her - which is why you can't hear her, and only Mel B?

What you said just totally confused me - but let me try to clarify what i mean -

In the Geri-rap version, it seems like she can't keep up with the beat of the song while she's rapping, like she's consistently a half of a beat behind.

With the Mel B-rap version, she raps right with the beat of the music, and doesn't seem to struggle getting the words out in time.

I don't think you understood my joke - or read my previous two posts.

There is no version with Geri rapping, it's two vocal takes by Mel B done with different pacings. I suggest going back to page 3. :angel:

See I don't really get it - There's only ONE line "who do you think I am?" - in the slower rap (which is in the extended and album versions) that sounds a BIT like Geri, because Melanie's voice gets raspy. But otherwise it all sounds like Mel B, especially if you listen to it right after the other version, and also listen to the love thing rap between geri and mel b - which really distinguishes their vocal differences.
