Released in 1998 this is one of the first “internet” made hit songs.
This was former Mickey Mouse Club cast member Britney Spears first hit, and it propelled her to stardom.
Song with it’s catchy hook and thick production certainly got plenty of radio play. The image of the schoolgirl Spears, just 16 when the song was released, made her a sensation and a staple on music video channel MTV.
However, it was the internet that gave her the most traction, as teenage girls and guys of all ages logged into their AOL accounts and typed some variation of “Britney Spears” into Alta Vista to see more of her.
