Bag It Up

Album: Schizophonic (2000)
Charted: 1

Songfacts®:

  • This was the fourth and last single to be released from Schizophonic, which was Halliwell's first solo album and the first solo effort for any of the Spice Girls. After a huge promotional campaign, the single shot straight to #1 in the UK, giving Halliwell her third #1 single in a row, proving critics in the media wrong that she was to fail in search of a solo career. >>

  • In this song, Halliwell gives her thoughts on how to deal with men, and it's clear she likes a bit of control and doesn't conform to traditional gender roles. The video shows many shirtless men doing her bidding, something that Halliwell repeated when she performed the song at the 2000 BRIT Awards.
