Spice Girls' 'Headline' Single, a Flop in U.K.

A rather sad news from the highly-coveted reunion of has been surrounded not only on the rumored friction within the band but also on their single 'Headlines'.

The song which is meant to be a comeback single is officially a flop in their home country, U.K. According to a press release, only 4,907 copies have been sold digitally, prompting radio stations to play it only once a day.

In the first week since the single was available for digital download in U.K. on November 5, 'Headlines' has only peaked at #20, a comparably low position to their 1998 single 'Goodbye' that went straight to #3 on U.K. Singles chart.

"The opinion of the Radio 1 playlist team is that the song isn't strong enough," George Ergatoudis, Head of Music at Radio 1 said. "Clearly there's a huge number of Spice Girls fans out there - look at the (concert) tickets they have sold. But Headlines is very disappointing. The song simply isn't strong enough. It would have been a B-side in their heyday."

'Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)' is one of the two tracks that appear in their 'Greatest Hits' that will be released worldwide throughout this month, except for U.S. The Stateside release is limited this month but will be distributed widely in January 2008.
