Quote

...Baby One More Time is the debut studio album by American singer Britney Spears. It was released on January 12, 1999 through Jive Records. In June 1997, while Spears negotiated with manager Lou Pearlman to join female pop group Innosense, her mother asked family friend and entertainment lawyer Larry Rudolph for his opinion and submitted a tape of Spears singing over a Whitney Houston karaoke song. Rudolph decided to pitch her to record labels, sending them a demo tape with an unused song from Toni Braxton. Jive was interested and appointed the singer to work with producer Eric Foster White. After hearing the recorded material, Jive signed Spears to a multi-album deal.

I remember buying it in March of 99. It was spring break and I was crazed. I remember my sister looking though the catalogue booklet with the merchandise and laughing saying you can tell she isn’t going to be famous long. I took it to school and in gym class it was all everyone could talk about. I remember  this girl I had a huge crush on asked to borrow it. It made me really popular at school for like a whole week. Britney did that.

Can you name a bigger debut era? Maybe Whitney's self-titled but even that is debatable.

 

OT: The birth of The Pop Princess, Britney's domination in those years is part of my earliest memories of pop music. OIDIA was just as big.

Older than most people in here and more iconic, legendary and impactful than all of their faves combined.

 

This masterpiece just keeps getting better by the day. Ugh, an ALBUM!

A debut era.  :jonny4:

 

I remember seeing the video on MTV one afternoon, but didn't start stanning until "Making the Video" for "Crazy."
