“Spice Up Your Life” is a song by English girl group the Spice Girls from their second studio album, Spiceworld (1997). The song was co-written by the group with Matt Rowe and Richard Stannard, at the same time as the group was shooting scenes for their 1997 film Spice World, while production was handled by the latter two. It is a dance-pop song, with influences of Latin rhythms such as salsa and samba. The song’s theme reflects the group desire to “write a song for the world” while the lyrics has been labeled as dance oriented with a self-promoting message.
Adele sang a snippet of the song during one of her shows on the Adele Live 2016 tour in support of her third studio album, 25. This is the second Spice Girls song Adele has covered, having previously sung part of their hit “Wannabe” during her “Carpool Karaoke” segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden in 2016.
