On November 14, 2000, Jive Records released the holiday album Platinum Christmas. It contained 16 songs by different artists such as Britney Spears, Whitney Houston, *NSync and Monica among others. The album peaked at #32 on the US Billboard 200.

Britney's track, My Only Wish (This Year) opens the album and it has become the most popular song out of the record. It's been included in several Christmas albums over the years and in 2020 it was re-released as a vinyl and digital single with a new cover. On Spotify, is Britney's sixth most streamed song.

 

The American tracklist of the album is:

  1. My Only Wish (This Year) - Britney Spears
  2. Grown-Up Christmas List - Monica
  3. This Christmas - Joe
  4. I Don't Wanna Spend One More Christmas Without You - *NSync
  5. Silent Night - Christina Aguilera
  6. Posada (Pilgrimage to Bethlehem) - Santana
  7. Little Drummer Boy - Jars of Clay
  8. Christmas Song - Dave Matthews
  9. Christmas Day - Dido

  13. My Gift to You - Donell Jones
  14. Sleigh Ride - TLC
  15. The Christmas Song - Toni Braxton
