United Kingdom In the UK, Stop ironically ended the run of the pieces of the Spice Girls' consecutive #1 songs, at six (from Wannabe to Too Much), but still allowed them to become the first act in history to have their first six singles make number 1 in the UK. This record was eventually overtaken by Westlife, whose first 7 singles went to number 1 in the UK. The song debuted at #2, being kept off the top spot by the million-selling Jason Nevins remix of Run DMC's 1983 hit It's Like That.
United States This single is seen as the group's second least successful single ever in terms of chart performance and worldwide sales. It only managed to peak at number sixteen on the Billboard Hot 100, two positions higher than Spice Up Your Life, but dropped out of the top fifty much quicker, making it the pieces of Spice's least successful United States release.
