The Clock Is Tickin’ And We Can’t Stop: Britney’s ‘Baby One More Time’ Album Turns 20-Years-Old

Last updated:

Britney Spears changed the face of pop music with Baby One More Time, and our lives were never the same.

I can still hear the clear, shiny plastic crinkle as 10-year-old me furiously worked to free Baby One More Time from its confines. Little did I know that the album would be a gateway drug to my addiction for pop music, and impact my and countless others' lives for the better.

BOMT debuted January 12, 1999. It became a global sensation preceding the digital era –– before artists could Tweet a link to millions of people and before MySpace forced you to rate your friends from most important to least. If "Email My Heart" isn't an obvious indication of how the era relates to present day, you're stuck in the past like me.
