MØ‘s cover of the Spice Girls’ “Say You’ll Be There” is one of the best. Its 2014 debut preceded the release of her debut album and solidified MØ as one of the artists to watch. Now, she’s performing with an actual Spice Girl. Talk about coming full circle.
During a show at London’s Roundhouse, Melanie C—aka Sporty Spice—joined MØ on stage for a special duet of “Say You’ll Be There.” The cover relied more on the Spice Girls’ original upbeat tempo than MØ’s hypnotic, turned-down cover. It was a pop music emergency, nonetheless.
MØ says Melanie C is her childhood idol. She told Billboard back in 2014 that the first albums she ever bought were by the Spice Girls. Melanie C shared an Instagram after the performance, saying, ”[MØ] was inspired by the Spice Girls as a kid, now she inspires me.” Consider life to be truly spiced up.
