Singer Britney Spears is credited for reviving the teen pop genre in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Her music has shaped an entire generation’s childhood with her relatable lyrics and punky beats.
Known as the princess of pop, Britney, who turns a year older today, has created some award-winning iconic numbers that remain in rage even today. This year, birthday celebrations began a day early as the Grammy-winning singer posted two snaps on social media with boyfriend Sam Asghari to mark the occasion. Taking to Instagram, she wrote: “Happy b-day to me” followed by lots of emoticons to express her excitement.
What better way to celebrate Britney’s music than to listen to them. Here are her top 5 tracks:
Released as the second single from ‘In the Zone’, Toxic is an age-defying number that won Britney her first Grammy. The two-decade-old song recently was in craze in India for its parts being sampled from Lata Mangeshkar and SP Balasubrahmanyam’s Tere Mere Beech Mein.
Baby one more time
The 1999 debut album of Britney aptly managed to grasp the potential of the pop artist. Baby one more time was the title track and it was a huge hit. The song revolutionized American pop as it was seen in those days.
Oops!…I Did It Again
Birtney’s career was riddled with controversies and undue spotlight on her personal matters. But the singer remained unapologetic about her choices and her mantra gets reflected the best probably in this song.
With over 147 million views on YouTube, this song is one of the tracks that best describe toxic relations. One can guess the track’s popularity by playing it out loud in any situation and finding at least one person who still remembers the lyrics.
Revenge songs were the rage during those days and as per reports, Britney had co-written this track as a response to then ex Justin Timberlake’s song Cry Me A River, which was allegedly based on their relationship.
