Stop was the 7th single released in the UK and the sixth single released in the US by girl group phenomenon, the Spice Girls. The song was their third release from their second album, Spiceworld and was their least successful single ever in terms of chart performance and worldwide sales. It only managed to peak at #18 on the Hot 100, which was the same position "Spice Up Your Life" obtained, making the two songs their lowest chart singles in the US. In the UK, it broke their run of consecutive #1 hits, at 6, but allowed them to become the first act in history to have their first 6 singles make #1. This record was eventually overtaken, however they were still the first. The song stalled 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".
"Stop" mainly appealed to the younger crowd, and people who were six or seven-years-old at the time remember it as one of their favourite Spice Girls song.
The video for "Stop" is set back in a working class community in Ireland, around the late 1960's or early 1970's with the girls running around the streets dancing, jump roping, hula hooping and participating in random competitions. At the end, they all sing on stage at a bar.
