BackgroundEdit

The single was once again another number-one for the girls in the United Kingdom, becoming their ninth chart-topper in their home country, and also making the top ten in eleven different countries. However the single only peaked at number seven on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles (essentially the equivalent of number one hundred and seven on the Billboard Hot 100), becoming their first single not to make the Billboard Hot 100.

Holler was the first single from the re-formed Spice Girls that did not receive a commercial CD single release within the U.S. With poor promotion (due to the girls promoting as a duo; ex: Mel B and Mel C covered Europe, while Victoria and Emma covered the Americas) and radio airplay, the single failed to enter the Billboard Hot 100.

Holler became the eleventh UK number-one single with Melanie Chisholm as a songwriter. She surpassed the record set by former bandmate Geri Halliwell, whose third UK number-one Bag It Up had topped the charts the previous March. Mel C held this record until Madonna tied it in 2005 with Hung Up, and surpassed it in 2006 with Sorry.

ReceptionEdit

This single topped the MTV Asia Hitlist amidst competition between girl group Destiny's Child, whose number-one hit Independent Women Part I had strong radio airplay at that time. Since Holler had a slow time to be picked up on radio, the single had a low charting debut at number eighteen. It climbed the chart two notches at a time, a slow pace for a Spice Girls single, until it reached the top ten. The following weeks were tougher, because fellow pop acts Backstreet Boys and Westlife had released their singles at that time. Westlife was able to top the charts faster with their single My Love but since the Spice Girls had larger radio airplay and requests the following week, Holler inched its way three notches to gain the top spot for one week, before Westlife's My Love dethroned them the week after.
