Britney Spears. Baby One More Time

Twenty years ago, on October 23, 1998, 16-year-old Britney Spears released her debut song Baby one more time, which “blew up” all the world pop music.

The song captured music charts in 18 countries and became the best selling single of all time.

Britney wrote: “It’s hard to put into words what today means to me… 20 years ago, the world heard my music for the very first time! So much has happened since then… but what I really want to say is thank you to my amazing fans who have been there for me since day 1…”


Oh baby, baby
Oh baby, baby
Oh baby, baby
How was I supposed to know
That something wasn’t right here
Oh baby baby
I shouldn’t have let you go
And now you’re out of sight, yeah
Show me, how you want it to be
Tell me baby
‘Cause I need to know now what we’ve got

My loneliness is killing me
I must confess, I still believe
When I’m not with you I lose my mind
Give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time
