Passion is the third studio album by the English pop singer-songwriter Geri Halliwell, released on 6 June 2005 in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Canada. Two singles were released from the album, "Ride It", which charted at number four, and "Desire", which charted at number 22 on the UK Singles Chart. Critics praised Halliwell's improved voice,[2] but the album was a commercial failure, peaking at number 41, with only 5,432 copies sold[3] and charting for only one week, on the UK Albums Chart.[4] However, the album did manage to become a moderate hit worldwide, selling over half a million copies according to the Daily Mail. [5]

Background[edit]

Tracks for the album were recorded over an extended period between 2001 and 2004 with a number of producers. Songs co-written by Halliwell during her period which did not appear on the final album include "100% Pure Love", "Set Me Off",[6] "Geri's Got Her Groove Back"[7] and "Turn It On".[8]

Halliwell originally wanted to record the track "Some Girls" (written by Richard X and Hannah Robinson) for the album, but the track was instead given to Rachel Stevens, who had a top 3 hit with it in 2004.
