Thanks supaspaz!

 

20 Years ago on Jan. 12, 1999, a Pop Princess was born when 17 year old Britney Spears stepped on the music scene and released what is arguable the most iconic teen pop album of the millennium. Coming from her background of appearing on Star Search in 1992 and starring as one of the mousketeers on The Mickey Mouse Club for two seasons, Britney wanted more. After connecting with her future longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, he eventually got her a deal with Jive Records. After that, the rest is history.

 

After debuting with her lead single, …Baby One More Time, which became an immediate hit that reached #1 throughout the world, her debut album of the same title emerged and broke records nonstop.

 

Debuting at #1 on the BB200:

 

  • She became the first new female artist to have a number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one album on the Billboard 200 at the same time
  • The first new artist (male or female) to have a single go to the number one spot the same week that the album debuted at number one
  • The first new female artist to have the first single and first album at number one the same week.
  • The youngest female in Billboard history to have a simultaneous single and album at number one in the same week.

 

It became certified Diamond (14x Platinum) in the US, selling over 12M copies alone, and went on to sell nearly 30M copies worldwide, becoming the best selling album by a teen solo artist.

 

With the success of BOMT, Britney has been credited for leading the new revival of teen pop and becoming an international pop icon with her follow-up concerts and dance skills, arguably paving the way for other new teen pop artists.

 

Please participate in this ranking by completing this song sorter (created by the talented @supaspaz) and PM me your list by January 6th. Each song will be scored, your #1 song worth 15 points down to 1 point with #15. Comments are allowed.

 

Ranking starts on Saturday, January 12th, the anniversary date!

 

Enjoy yourselves Army!!!

I can see there's two options to choose from, but no song title shows in them.

What do you mean?

But don't worry, it seems to be an issue of the browser. It works fine in Chrome, so I'll do it there and send you my results.
