"...Baby One More Time"

The last teenage popstar of the 90s… and absolutely the Millennium Teenage Queen

It’s quite common for us to dispute about who was the first worldwide star in a specific period. For example, the first top artist in the third millennium, or, in the next period, who will be the shining star of the 20s. But if I should say who was the last pop queen of the second millennium, the girl who, with her songs and videos, introduced us to the 2000s, well, there is no doubt. Britney Spears broke down full speed into the world of pop in late 1998 with her first song and video. Her success was so huge that her debut album, released at the end of 1999, topped the charts in many many countries, and her fantastic career definitely skyrocketed. Britney Spears was only 16, and she played the role of the attractive teenage girl, always balancing between being innocent and being attractive, a continuous teasing game of moves and gazes. She was not the first, of course; Lio and Elli Medeiros in France during the early 80, Madonna and her “Like a Virgin” look in the States, Sabrina Salerno with her “Boys” in Italy, Patsy Kensit of Eighth Wonder and Kylie Minogue were teenage icons of beauty and joy of life in the UK during the late 80’s. Many of them are still active, and few of them have been able to remain faithful to their character, and also to evolve during the years. Britney Spears did all of this. I can’t think of any Britney’s hit during all the years, that would not perfectly fit also in the early Britney character ad attitude. It’s a sort of, how to say, everlasting Britneyism!

Britney Spears Ushers In The New Millennium With An Auspicious Debut Album

Britney Spears would’ve just been 17 years old when she was recording songs for her debut album …Baby One More Time. That explains the overwhelming teenybopper pop that pervades in the album, and although the video for the megahit “Baby One More Time” showed her as a sexy coed in school wearing those barely there skirts, she was really just a teenager when this album was in production. In a way we can say that we saw Britney grow up in front of our eyes since many also know her as one of the kids in the TV show Mickey Mouse Club (along with Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, and Christina Aguilera) in the Disney channel. Years later, three of them would all break through in a big way in the music industry while the other one will snag several Best Actor Oscar nominations. From those auspicious beginnings, we remember her as someone cute and sweet and nice – someone you definitely want to be friends with. This was way way before her massive emotional meltdown a decade later, and her eventual recovery and return back to the top of the US charts. It has been quite a wild ride for this former Disney princess, but you wouldn’t have predicted it just by listening to this album. All the hullabaloo started when Britney released the title track of this album. I remember it was around Christmas 1998 and New Year 1999 when it was released and it was warmly received by her new fans. The song and video were a virtual cultural phenomenon, with parodies made of the video – and the shameless imitation of the singer by many drag queen wannabees. I am not so sure if those imitations were for her, the highest form of flattery. In the start of the new millennium, Britney not only became a formidable pop force, people knew a major artist had arrived. Good thing is, even through her ups and downs, Britney was able to achieve a solid track record in terms of hit singles and hit albums – so every dramatic event about her life that media reports and spreads around through the tabloids, behind that is a very hardworking woman who knows it’s still all about the music.

About

...Baby One More Time is the debut studio album by American pop singer Britney Spears. It was released on January 12, 1999 through Jive Records. In June 1997, while Spears negotiated with her manager at the time, Lou Pearlman, to join female pop group Innosense, her mother, Lynne Spears, asked a Spears' family friend and entertainment lawyer, Larry Rudolph, for his opinion. Rudolph took interest and decided to pitch her to record labels. Rudolph submitted a tape of Britney Spears singing over a Whitney Houston karaoke song, along with a demo tape of an unused song from Toni Braxton. Jive Records was interested and appointed the singer to work with producer Eric Foster White. After hearing the recorded material, Jive signed Spears to a multi-album deal.
