Notes: 'Let's Love', 'First Day of My Life', 'The Moment You Believe', 'Understand, 'Rock Me' &
'Let There Be Love' were not UK singles, and thus their sales are unknown. Although 'Better
Alone' was released in the UK, its physical formats were only sold through Melanie C's online
store. In 2005, a single had to be retailed in music stores to be eligible to chart, thus'Better
Alone' could not chart, and its sales are therefore unknown.

Notes (Originally written on 1st June 2015):
Spoiler: show
Spice Girls

'Mama' / 'Who Do You Think You Are' has often been cited as having sold 672,577 copies in a few published articles. This information could date back as far as 2003, however a source in 2009 stated this single as having sold 667,357. It is worth noting that its overall sales figure should be quite a bit higher by now. Please read this post for my theory on how it could have exceeded 680,515 copies.
-----
Sales figures for the aforementioned 'Mama' / 'Who Do You Think You Are' and 'Stop' are likely to be their physical only sales. Please read this post for my theory regarding how these singles are likely to be missing digital data. (Update: 'Stop' confirmed to have sold in excess of 400,000 copies as of 29th January 2016 = mystery solved for this single! :D).
-----
The Official Charts Company have listed different total sales figures for 'Wannabe'. On 19th August 2012 it was stated to have sold 1,242,521 by OZAP (sourcing sales from the OCC), but on 27th June 2013 the OCC themselves stated that the song was on sales of "1.34m". However on 20th December 2014, an OCC article mentions "1.28 million copies" instead. Who knows how much 'Wannabe' has really has sold definitively? I've just gone with the highest figure that they've revealed.


Solo

On 30th May 2013, the Official Charts Company revealed the biggest selling solo singles from Spice Girls members, in the form of a Top 40 list (although we were able to work out a Top 41 due to the OCC initially mistakenly leaving out 'When You're Gone' from the list). Sadly only a handful of sales were revealed in this article. The Top 41 is as follows:

1. When You're Gone [Melanie C] | 2. It's Raining Men [Geri Halliwell] | 3. Never Be The Same Again [Melanie C] | 4. Out of Your Mind [Victoria Beckham] | 5. Mi Chico Latino [Geri Halliwell] | 6. I Turn To You [Melanie C] | 7. Lift Me Up [Geri Halliwell] | 8. Look at Me [Geri Halliwell] | 9. What Took You So Long? [Emma Bunton] | 10. Bag It Up [Geri Halliwell]
11. I Want You Back [Mel B] | 12. What I Am [Emma Bunton] | 13. Northern Star [Melanie C] | 14. Feels So Good [Mel B] | 15. Tell Me [Mel B] | 16. Goin' Down [Melanie C] | 17. Scream If You Wanna Go Faster [Geri Halliwell] | 18. Take My Breath Away [Emma Bunton] | 19. Not Such An Innocent Girl [Victoria Beckham] | 20. Downtown [Emma Bunton]
21. Maybe [Emma Bunton] | 22. Word Up [Mel B] | 23. Calling [Geri Halliwell] | 24. This Groove / Let Your Head Go [Victoria Beckham] | 25. A Mind of Its Own [Victoria Beckham] | 26. Free Me [Emma Bunton] | 27. If That Were Me [Melanie C] | 28. Ride It [Geri Halliwell] | 29. Here It Comes Again [Melanie C] | 30. Lullaby [Mel B]
31. I'll Be There [Emma Bunton] | 32. We're Not Gonna Sleep Tonight [Emma Bunton] | 33. On The Horizon [Melanie C] | 34. Next Best Superstar [Melanie C] | 35. Crickets Sing For Anamaria [Emma Bunton] | 36. I Want Candy [Melanie C] | 37. Desire [Geri Halliwell] | 38. Melt / Yeh Yeh Yeh [Melanie C] | 39. Carolyna [Melanie C] | 40. All I Need To Know [Emma Bunton] + 41. Think About It [Melanie C]

The majority of sales figures we know for the solo singles were provided in June 2009, therefore they're very out of date. Nevertheless I have listed those 2009 sales instead of estimates. This means that there are certain singles which appear to have sold more than certain others, whereas the above list will suggest the opposite to be true (for instance, 'Scream If You Wanna Go Faster' and 'Take My Breath Away'. A higher sales figure is written for 'Take...', but 'Scream...' places higher in the Top 41 solo singles list. Sadly, we just can't know for certain how much some of these solo singles have sold to date.

(I don't have It's Only Rock 'N' Roll unfortunately, but do we count that towards the Spice Girls, when it's a Various Artists record?)

Anyway, I think it's fantastic when you look and see that with all their projects combined, they contributed over 20m sales to the UK music industry.

For God's sake, they have sold more than 20 million records just in the UK, i think it's pretty mind-blowing. Ok, they've released many albums and many singles, but still!

That's brilliant that they sold so much just within the UK. And Headlines at 39! I was expecting worse, but when you look at it compared to the solo stuff, it doesnt look that bad.

And Emma is the only solo Spice to have sold more with her sophomore album than her debut album. It's really sad to see how Melanie C and Geri have fallen.

Geri and Melanie Cs total UK sales as solo artists are really awesome for ex members of a band. I doubt many other ex girlband or boyband members could say they sold that much bar the likes of Beyonce

Forever and the GH did pretty shit really didnt they!
I suppose on the back of one single then its ok, but this is Spice Girls you'd expect double that on the back of one single, if the GH gets 400,000 then i think thats good but really i am dissapointed with those!
Really shows they were a phenonemon for the time alone!

I think for the calibre of hits on the GH, it didn't do well as it probably deserved. When it comes to the way the project was handled though, I think the sales are a miracle really! I'd never really dismiss a 300k+ seller as shit tbh, it's still Platinum.

Forever was a pretty poor show, but then it only had one single out before it and sold the majority of that in just two months (November/December 2000). With a couple more singles, who knows what it'd have ended with!

I am sure 20k would be sold if they did a one-off show, hardly needs a miracle. Even a publicised re-release with more bonuses would probably shift 20k to get it up to 400k.

a re-release with a bonus DVD with tour footage, or another new song would make them sell those 20,000 albums. hehe

but I see more possible that Holler reaches the 250k mark, it only needs 20 downloads to get it.



Looking at those sales figures it's pretty amazing how much they sold with just 3 albums and an active band-life of 4 years.



It would be amazing to get this kind of info but on a worldwide scale.
