25 years ago today, Britney Spears released what was to become her international breakthrough song "...Baby One More Time". The pop hit and the debut album of the same name were the beginning of a successful but also drama-filled career.
On Spotify alone, "...Baby One More Time" had been listened to almost 700 million times by October 17, 2023, making it the second most-streamed song by the "Princess of Pop." As this infographic shows, the singer's most-streamed hit is "Toxic," the second single from her fourth album "In the Zone," with over one billion streams. In third place is "Oops!...I Did It
Again," with over 675 million streams.
Despite a long list of hits and recent collaborations with such greats as Elton John, the Mississippi-born singer has made more headlines recently for situations in her personal life. The fight to end her conservatorship, for example, inspired, among other things, the massive #FreeBritney fan movement. And, with the release of her much-anticipated memoir "The Woman in Me" on October 24, the pop icon is likely to remain in the spotlight for the coming months.
