Britney Spears Celebrates 20th Anniversary Of “Oops!…I Did It Again”

Britney Spears proved that she was anything but a one hit wonder when she released her sophomore album Oops!…I Did It Again on May 16, 2000. The album held the record for 15 years for the biggest sales week ever for an album by a female artist, debuting at No. 1 on the June 3, 2000-dated Billboard 200 with 1,319,000 copies sold in its first week.

The album showed a more mature and more confident side of the singer as she continued her reign in pop music with a slew of iconic hits including the album’s title track, “Stronger,” “Lucky” and “Don’t Let Me Be The Last To Know.”

The pop star couldn’t believe that her hit sophomore album, Oops!…I Did It Again, was released 20 years ago and neither can we! Britney posted the most amazing compilation featuring clips of herself circa 2000 on her Instagram page.

“Thank you to whoever made this,” she wrote on Instagram Saturday (May 16), the set’s 20th anniversary. “I just nearly dropped my phone I wasn’t expecting it!!!!! 20 years since the Oops! album …. the anticipation and the butterflies I felt before it came out were crazy …. all of my expectations were exceeded!!!! And it’s all thanks to you folks.”

Britney added: “Thank you for sticking with me and growing with me. I am one Lucky girl. God Bless and thank you all!!!!!! PS you see even 20 years ago I still liked to twirl!!!!”

The video features interview clips with Spears at the time, as well as glimpses at her in the recording studio and at the album’s photo shoot.
