Updated on March 13, 2013

All about the album Baby One More Time by Britney Spears

Baby One More Time is the debut album by Britney Spears. It was released in January 12, 1999 when Britney was 17 years old. It started an era of music based around bubblegum pop and dancing that all youngsters loved. The album was named after her debut single, which was a #1 chart topping hit and is still Britney Spears' biggest hit. The album broke records and won many awards.

The album Baby One More Time reached number 1 in 15 countries and reached top 5 in 19 countries. It's the 27th best-selling album in American music history, and 4th best-selling album by a female artist. It is the best-selling album by a teenager and the best-selling female debut in the U.S.

I was about 11 years old when Baby One More Time came out. The first time I saw Britney Spears was on TV for her music video for Baby One More Time. It was the first CD I ever bought and it made me an instant fan. She was the girl that every young girl wanted to be and all of the boys wanted to date.

      Met Britney backstage when she filmed the Disney Special with Joey McIntyre, got a pic with her and she autographed a calender I had of her. Very cool!

      Classic. I always looked up to her growing up and it's sad to see the path she has taken. I love her sill, though!

      Sigh, this really brings me back to 8th grade... I remember how scandalous we all thought her first video was... and boy what did that become!

      Hi Bethany,

      BABY ONE MORE TIME was a great song, & it seems it created a lot of jealousy among older listeners. I remember a lot of projecting onto this pretty straight-forward song.

      She & her friends sure came a long way from The Mickey Mouse Club!

      Thanks, for all those details about her early career, Bethany. :O)

      Sunshine & Blessings,

      Giovani
