#17 debut for a new singer's first song before the digital era (I know there was internet but no streaming, YouTube, etc) is mind blowing. How?!? That's amazing

I had the same reaction when I found out. :barbie_hair_flip_hairflip_weave_proud_cocky:

I think it was a combination of it's radio impressions rising and the strength of sales for the CD single. It hit #1 on the Billboard sales chart. And the video came out a week after it debuted on the Hot 100 so it could not have been that. Of course the MV definitely helped it climb the charts faster and have a more consistent performance and longevity. :mhm_britney_nodding_yes_mhmm:

Back to when having a Top 20 Single signified a hit :letitburn_elmo_fire_flames_burn:

So impressed still 

I think artists should release the video within days of the song release if not at the same time of release of the song
