One of the songs was about Eddie Murphy, so even if she could, I doubt she'd release it. (Since they're on better terms these days).

The 'Hot' era had no b-sides. 'Sophisticated Lady' was the b-side to 'Word Up', that was a stand alone single for the Austin Powers movie and wasn't even included on the album.


Actually it was included in the Japanese edition.

Apparently there's a few in existence from the LA State of Mind sessions, but Mel's cleaner can be heard singing along in the background as she washed the dishes and has threatened legal action should they leek.

I knew someone would point that out. 'Step To Me' was also included in the Japanese edition of 'Spiceworld' and we don't count it as a single nor as a track from that album. The 'Hot' era began with 'Tell Me' in 2000, not with 'Word Up' in 1999.

'Word Up' isn't a single from 'Hot', same as 'I Want You Back', 'What I Am' and 'Goodbye' weren't proper singles from 'Hot', 'AGLM' and 'Forever' either, they were just included because they were big hits but at the time of their release they were one-off singles, not the lead singles from the albums that followed later on, so it makes no sense to include none of those singles (and their b-sides) inside their respective albums' eras.

Ah "Whose Is It" lol, I totally forgot about that song. That intro with "YAH IM BRITISH! SAY WUTTTT, THE ILLEST OF THA ILLEST" and the line about the hokey-pokey are so cringe worthy lol. The rest isn't bad though.

I agree with what you say about it being a one-off single. Yet, to say that it wasn't included in Hot is technically wrong as it was included in the Japanese edition. It wasn't originally recorded during the Hot sessions, yet it was included in the Japanese edition because of its relative success -it wasn't even a big hit.

^When I said it wasn't included on the album it's obvious I meant the general edition of the album. That's like saying Holler's MAW Remix is a Forever album track that was included on the album just because it was a bonus track in the Japanese edition.
