Ready to feel old? Britney Spears’ first ever single “…Baby One More Time” debuted 21 years ago today! The Max Martin produced track sky-rocketed the singer into pop superstardom and the rest is history. Record breaking pop music history. The song and album of the same name topped The Billboard Hot 100 Charts and cemented Britney as the Princess Of Pop.
I remember hearing this song for the first time and watching the music video on MTV like it was yesterday. It was the most amazing feeling and was the moment that I fell in love with pop music and Britney. I remember making my parents drive me to the music store to buy the album the day it was released and literally played it all day every day. Memories!
Fun fact: Britney actually wasn’t the first pick for the song. It was actually offered to The Backstreet Boys and TLC first but the group passed on the track, which ended up going to Britney.
