After the song's release, many people assumed that it would symbolize the disbanding of the Spice Girls, but the members assured everyone (particularly their fans) that the song was simply a special tribute to Halliwell which told that they would support her in whatever she wanted to do and continue to carry on the group. They also said that the words "It's not the end" were supposed to symbolize that they would not split up. A few months after the song's release, the members took time off to devote time to their personal lives and/or pursue solo projects. The group then made a comeback (without Halliwell) in the fall of 2000 with a single (the double A-side "Holler/Let Love Lead the Way", UK #1) and a third album (which was not as commercially successful compared to their other two albums). In the spring of 2001, the members ended up not practicing what they preached, and they disbanded to pursue solo careers.
