Spice Girls' 'Wannabe' Gets A Perfect Makeover To Shed Light On What Girls 'Really Really Want'

And it's much more than just "zigazig ha."

In 1996, following the release of "Wannabe," one of the all-time best-selling singles by a female group, Spice Girls took the world by storm. In their platform shoes and flashy outfits, the five ladies behind the British pop band declared to the world that girl power is here to stay. 

20 years later, "Wannabe" remains one of the most iconic songs of female empowerment.

Now, The Global Goals campaign, which aims to make each of the U.N.'s 17 sustainable development goals famous, is pushing the notion of "girl power" even further with its remake of the song. The campaign partnered with female artists from the U.K., Nigeria, India, South Africa, Canada and the U.S. to call for equal rights for women across the board.

"What do you really really want?" the video asks, echoing the song's original lyrics. "Girl power has come a long way. Let's take it further." 


Turn the sound up and watch the video below:

"In 2015, world leaders promised to put girls and women first when they signed up to the Sustainable Development Goals to end poverty, fix climate change and tackle inequalities. Girls and women are disproportionately affected by these challenges and are key to building resilient communities to withstand them," the Global Goals campaign explains on its website. "That's why we need to ensure World Leaders and the Secretary-General of the United Nations listen to the voices of girls and women and put them first in policies and plans."

Make some noise, ladies. You can do so by sharing a photo of yourself holding up what you "really, really want" for girls and women around the world using the #WhatIReallyReallyWant hashtag.
