Melanie Janine Brown (Harehills, Leeds, May 29, 1975), also known as Mel B , Melanie B or ‘Scary Spice ‘, is a British pop singer. He rose to fame as a member of the popular female group Spice Girls. He has English origins (from his mother) and Jamaicans (from his father). After the worldwide success in the Spice Girls in 2017 confirms that the group will meet again, but without compromising date.

Melanie Janine Brown’s Biography

At 18 he left his hometown for London in search of fame. There he was trying out in different castings and at night he worked in the odd musical. She appeared at the Stage casting and was chosen for the girls’ quintet that would later achieve success. Of the others, I already knew Melanie Chisholm with whom I had coincided in several shows. For her, the group is very important. After the departure of Geri -which the British tabloids attribute the great fault-, among all kinds of rumors, Mel released along with Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliot the single “I Want You Back”, the first as a soloist and which was number 1 in the United Kingdom. His second solo single (taking advantage of the break that the Spice Girls took in 1999 to prepare their third album) was “Word Up”, which was part of the soundtrack for the movie Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and already in autumn of 2000, almost coinciding with Forever (the third album of the spicy quintet) launched Hot, his first solo album. As expected, the return of the Spice Girls certainly darkened enough to the first album, which did not get good sales. “Tell Me” and “Feels So Good” were the promotional singles of the release of the album, but despite having been top 5 in the United Kingdom they did not help much to come back to Hot, who stagnated in the lists and little by little it was disappearing .

Virgin, after seeing that Scary’s career was in decline, gave her an ultimatum: they were going to give her the opportunity to get a single more, and if this one was not on the number one list of sales, she would be fired . “Lullaby”, the third single that was chosen, reached number 13, causing Mel’s immediate exit from the label.

After this, Mel dedicated himself only to his daughter Phoenix Chi -the one he had with his then husband Jimmy Gulzar, ex-dancer of the Spice team during the 1998 world tour- and to write his memoirs in his first autobiography called Catch a Fire that was released to the market at the end of 2002 telling all its history with Jimmy and his version of the history of the female group, achieving some success.

Later he began to dedicate himself to acting. In theater he participated in The monologues of the vagina reaching great recognition. Seeing possibilities within the interpretive field after appearing in the BBC series Burn It, presenting the TV show This Is My Moment and making a short film entitled Fish, he entered the cinema with the recording of LD50: Lethal Dose, a film of horror and suspense that would mean his second foray into the cinema after Spice World. The film was classified as Series B, since it was released in very few theaters in the United States and the United Kingdom in a promotional way.

Mel B’s most acclaimed work during 2004 was her appearance in the Broadway musical, Rent, playing the role of Mimi. The United States helped Mel in a certain way to get back into music, since, at the same time that he was acting in the musical, he held a concert in a New York theater, where he played new songs. In 2005, Mel released his second solo album called L.A. State of Mind, which was cataloged as a “gift for the fans” by Scary Spice itself, but the album and the promotional single “Today” were not successful.

Due to her resounding failure with her second album, Melanie Brown has been fired from her record label Amber Café Records UK and has become detached from the world of music.

In October 2006, she announced that she was expecting a baby from actor Eddie Murphy: Angel Iris Murphy Brown, who was born on April 2, 2007.

She was invited in 2011 as a jury in the Australian version of the talent show The X Factor, and in 2014 she changed the continent to participate as a fourth jury in the British edition of The X Factor.
