onstage during the 2016 Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena on May 22, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Britney Spears has been in the business for twenty years. A milestone that once again comes to mind this weekend.

“I am grateful for every moment”

“Can you believe that this album was released twenty years ago? Not me,” wrote Britney on the cover of her debut album Baby One More Time. “It has been the journey of my life, full of ups and downs, but I am grateful for every moment.”

On 12 January 1999, Britney released her first record. The album immediately made a superstar of the then 17-year-old singer. The CD includes hits like Sometimes, (You Drive Me) Crazy, Born to Make You Happy and of course Baby One More Time. Worldwide, more than 32 million copies were sold.

In October Britney also briefly discussed the twentieth anniversary of the single Baby One More Time.
