Remember when TLC started singing about grown-up sex and narrowly escaped the backlash against novelty phenoms? The Spice Girls do. After some awful solo projects and Ginger’s ugly defection, the Girls sniffed something rotting in Spiceworld. So they’ve dropped their nicknames, hired a platinum-plated R&B producer, and reinvented themselves as…Spice Divas. Forever’s urbanized come-on, however contrived, improves on their cartoonish past (“Holler” and “Oxygen” are actually listenable). But how big an accomplishment is that?
