With '...Baby One More Time' fast approaching its 20th anniversary, the Guardian published an article on the making of this iconic song, including quotes from Britney herself!

‘It was a bit of a blur’: Britney Spears on the making of ...Baby One More Time
by Michael Cragg

As the smash hit that changed the musical landscape turns 20, Britney, along with her collaborators, discuss the creation of a pop masterpiece

DUN DUN DUN. “Oh baby, baby ... ”. In just three seconds ...Baby One More Time, which turns 20 this year, announced the arrival of a new superstar: the then 16-year-old ex-Mouseketeer from Kentwood, Louisiana, Britney Jean Spears. Along with its equally iconic high school-set music video it re-turfed pop, kickstarting an entire sound (think funk-tinged R&B grooves mixed with Abba melodies), sweeping aside the dregs of grunge (sorry, Bush) and US heartland rock (bye, Hootie & the Blowfish), revitalising pop radio and MTV in the process, before cementing its songwriter and co-producer Max Martin as one of modern music’s most influential exponents. In the space of just three minutes and 31 seconds, Spears launched millennial teen pop, fusing family-friendly, girl-next-door fun with good old fashioned controversy, forging a template for those who followed.

Without it, there would by no Christina Aguilera, no Katy Perry, no Charli XCX; Taylor Swift would probably still be singing country songs, and Eminem – who arrived in 1999 – would not have had as much to rail against. Released in the wake of Alanis Morissette’s hugely successful 1995 album Jagged Little Pill and its litany of imitators, it presented a different angle to the prevalent idea of female angst; this was gloriously OTT teen girl longing, encapsulated by a lyric – “My loneliness is killing me” – that feels depressingly evergreen. “The whole song is about that stress that we all go through as teens,” Spears tells me. “I knew it was a great song. It was different and I loved it, [but] I don’t think you can anticipate how a song is going to be received.”

https://www.amazon.ca/Baby-One-More-Time-Vinyl/dp/B07HSKPHR9 The album is being released on picture disc - the first time that it’ll be internationally available on vinyl.



Note: There’s been two previous vinyl pressings that were Urban Outfitters exclusives in the US (2017 - pink & white swirl vinyl: 2,500 copies limited edition // 2018 - clear vinyl: 10,000 copies limited edition).

I've never been a fan of the American cover of BOMT (the album) it looks a bit too cheesy and girly, the UK one is far superior!

I prefer the international cover too; that is the image that I associated with the album for many years. I don't think I knew about the US/Canada cover for quite a long time! I wonder why her label decided to go with two different front covers?

The picture disc actually looks cute, it's going to be in a transparent cover:



Side B of the record:



(I feel like the second side should have been the international cover, but oh well~)


Lots of other BOMT related merchandise here including t shirt, mug and a key ring! ~ https://store.britneyspears.com/?utm_campai...;utm_term=N%2FA
