    BTW .. I already remembered that paparazzi video. I mean, there’s one where she was playing “Heaven On Earth” and she also said that song was her favorite from the record at the time.

    And there’s another paprazzi video of her from 2006 (“Blackout” wasn’t even close to be released at that time) and she was playing demos, it wasn’t just “State Of Grace”, she also played “Rebellion” and “To Love Let Go” but she never commented anything on the songs and never answered the paparazzis back.

    Between 2004 and 2006 it was very usual she leaked songs intentionally.

    She herself presented (unannounced and as a total surprise visit) to a Radio station in December, 2004 to premiere “Mona Lisa” on Radio. She literally went a leaked an unreleased song to radio intentionally.

    Through her website she would also leak either songs’s snippets or full songs like “Rebellion” and “Just Yesterday”. Or she would play songs in front of the Paparazzis.

    It was normal for Britney to do that.

    Yeah you’re making it up. It was “Heaven On Earth”.

    I would have loved “State Of Grace” to be included on “Blackout” but I think it didn’t make the cut because it was perceived as not suiting enough for the album rebelious and electro style.

    “State Of Grace” is perfect for a Rarities collection though. I know the song was sold to some French singer eventually but Britney still has her version.

    For her 25th anniversary, instead of doing another boxset or some cr*p like that or another Greatest Hits album for the hundred time … I would rather prefer celebrating with a Rarities collection instead. A compilation of the greatest unreleased tracks she has through her +2 decade career.

    I hope that too, State of Grace is one of my faves and I think these leaks are only fans contained so even if they get some good polishing for B sides it would make sense imo. I know it would never happen but lots of artist re record their stuff for anniversaries, dreaming is always free

    I’m sure Blackout will be expanded at some point but it’s worth remembering a lot of the leftovers leaked. I think I’d be more interested in seeing the producers come together to finish the demos and release Blackout 2.0 with a full studio album of leftovers.

    I am not saying she doesn't love it, what I am trying to say is Blackout can get some B sides with vinyl re issues or some new remixes

    ^ Exactly. And she recently posted an insta clip with “Get Naked”.

    Britney also seems to love singles “Gimme More” and “Piece Of Me”, and she does have an obsession with “Freakshow”. She loves the album.

    Her other album I know she loves is “In The Zone”, she seems to respect and she seems proud about the 3 first singles (“Me Against The Music”, “Toxic” and “Everytime”), it’s no sercet she has an obsession with album tracks “Breathe On Me” and “Touch Of My Hand” and she recently posted about “Brave New Girl” and gave insight of the track. So yep, seems like ITZ is a favorite from her.

    Britney loves Blackout, what are you guys on about?

    The Circus Tour had more Blackout than it did Circus, and she’s been performing Freakshow (an album track) from it ever since.

    Britney rarely talks about any of her albums directly though. It’s not just a “Blackout” thing. She literally never talks about any of her albums.

    Actions are more powerful than words though. She has supported songs from “Britney”, “In The Zone” and “Blackout” on her social media recently.

    It would be cool if she did talk about it but doesn’t seem to be her style, she has always liked the music to speak for itself instead. The best thing that I aspire for “Blackout” is another re-issue for the 20th anniversary of the album in 2027

    As for her 25th anniversary overall I think her label might release another boxset or something like that and that’s it. Don’t expect Britney to sit on a couch to talk about her albums.

    15th anniversaries are rarely celebrated by labels or artists. It’s unusual. Most wait for 20th or 25th anniversaries.

    ”Blackout” was re-issued in Vinyl once in 2019 and then it was re-issued 3 times more in 2020 (two on Vinyl and one as a cassette) though. That would make a total of 4 re-issues (most recent one less than 2 years ago). Her entire Vegas show was called “Piece Of Me” in honor of her single, the “It’s Britney Bitch” line has been authorized for multiple samples. And by the time she did the “Circus Tour” the setlist was filled with “Blackout” tracks to the point that it seemed a Blackout Tour instead

    You guys act as if “Blackout” was released and never addressed again LOL

    I hope we do see something like a boxset - vinyls etc for 25th anniversary. Regarding her playlisting on spotify it's a different story but still I'll be looking forward for physicals releases for 25th.

    Blackout just never saw any light from Britney, so 15th anniversary imo would be perfect to do somethisomething one cool editions of vinyls would suffice in that case Britney won't have to be involved but she loves this body of work, perhaps one day we could see some acknowledgment from her

    Guys .. Her label has been milking her old albums a lot lately with multiple vinyl releases for their 20th anniversaries, in 2020 not only they re-issued “Oops I Did It Again” album with a vintage cassete release ideal for collectors but they also released a B-sides and remixes vinyl album from the “Oops I Did It Again” era that even charted on the Billboard 200. Her label has also been working with some 90s and early 00s Spotify playlists and the usage of her music (mostly old one) in movies, ads and media has increased like 300% more compared from 00s decade to now in the 20s.

    Artists normally only celebrate catalogues 3 times (10th anniversary, 20th anniversary and 25th anniversary and that’s it). She ain’t be celebrating every year.

    Her label celebrated big time her 10th anniversary with a boxset of all of her singles that included original artworks and B-sides. The 20th anniversary was more discreet but most artists and labels prefer to make a bigger thing for the 25th anniversary anyways.

    Her relationship with her label is odd, I mean we just don't know how her career for her old work will turn out. They missed out on 20th anniversary of 'Britney' album (perhaps she was still under conservatorship) but I don't have any expectations for Blackout turning 15 this year same for her 25th anniversary next year

    Her old work holds a lot of place in my heart, I grew up to those albums so you know Britney talking about how was her experience what she liked doing what she didn't, what creative inputs she had what she just went along etc etc that's what at some point I do would love to know from her perhaps in her book we will.

    I doubt Britney has a lot of love to her first 2 album music tho, era sure she did confirm as well, she considers herself as an performer first so it makes sense but something just released to her dancing - choreography- music - costumes. Only her experience for her music, I would really love to know her thoughts which we never got.

    She makes Sam listen to her music, so I'm sure she's proud of it. It would be a very good experience for a longtime fan like me to know what she thinks of it.

    I don’t think she dislikes her first two albums but I don’t think she loves them or is crazy about them.

    She does hate “Sometimes”, said it herself. And I suspect she doesn’t like FTBOMBH that much as it never made it into any of her compilations (not even the Remix albums).

    She has said she’s tired of “Baby One More Time” and “Oops I Did It Again” songs but more than a personal dislike it’s something that happens quite often with most artists and their classic songs (they get sick of them).

    Britney herself said (her own words) the only part of her career that she enjoyed were her first 3 eras .. so I know her first two albums bring her good memories from an experience point of view.

    Music-wise she seems to be more into the “In The Zone”, “Blackout” and “Britney” albums though.

I'm sure she's not very much attached to her older work but these two teen albums made Britney an icon she is today imo.

    I lived this era in real time, a massive era posters everyehere and i had a bagpack of her face on it, it was quite cool as a lot of girls had it in my school. This album had some waiting in our CD stores, I didn't get the album the minute it came out but got it in like 3-4 days after waiting in line and then remember playing it in my dad's car
    Britney’s label hasn’t started turning her catalogue into a legacy machine just yet, so we’ll see what Britney does once her album start turning 25.

    D*mn …. I still remember this era vividly. I experienced it and it was MASSIVE.

    I remember that after the BOMT album escalated so much and sold so crazy the second album was a make or break situation and the hype was insane. “Will she be able to repeat the success?” Was the main question back then and honestly I’m surprised they were able to replicate the success with back to back Diamond and 20 million selling albums. Hence the title for this album was brilliant, ironic and yep, pretty much intentional at the time.

    The “Oops” single premiere was a pop event and the song and video (at the time) felt huge. Literally MTV in the year 2000 would be Eminem and Britney back and forth.

    The era was pop perfect, the first 3 singles were back to back pop gold and that VMAs performance

    Back in the day the only artists that were having big success with pop music were bands (like boybands and girlbands), Madonna wasn’t doing pure pop music anymore (at that time) and Michael hadn’t been active with a studio album since 1995. When you think about it Britney (with BOMT and OIDIA eras) was the first solo artist that had MASSIVE (Diamond) success with pop music since Madonna and Michael Jackson. No wonder she was named the “Princess Of Pop”.

    22 years ago

    Some facts:
    On May 16, 2000, Britney Spears released in the United States her second studio album, Oops!... I Did It Again. The album had already been released in Japan on May 03, and Austria, Germany and Switzerland on May 15.
    Preceded by its lead single of the same name, which came out a month prior, Oops!... I Did It Again debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, getting the #1 in 20 charts around the world, #2 in six other countries and #5 in Italy. It broke the record for the biggest first-week sales by a female artist ever in the US, with 1, 319, 193 copies sold, a record she held until 2015, when Adele released 25. It reportedly sold over 500,000 copies just during the first day. It still holds the record for biggest first-year sales by a female, with 7.89 million copies sold in 2000, landing at #4 in the year-end chart of that year. It also appeared on the year-end chart again in 2001 at #28. Oops!... I Did It Again was also the #6 most sold album of the 00's. It became her second album to receive the Diamond certification from the RIAA.
    Much as its predecessor, Oops!... I Did It Again is a teen pop / dance pop album, though it has more influences of funk and R&B, with an overall more mature and aggressive tone. Whereas ...Baby One More Time was filled by mostly bubbly ballads and heartbreak songs, Oops! has a more adult sound with tracks like Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know or Where Are You Now, and its mid-tempos gravitate towards the empowerment, in tunes like Oops!... I Did It Again, Don't Go Knockin' on My Door, What U See (Is What U Get), or the Rolling Stones cover (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction, with Stronger even nodding at her debut single by revealing her "loneliness ain't killing her no more". However, it doesn't completely leave aside the sweet melodies that characterized her debut album, with songs like One Kiss from You, Dear Diary or the bonus track Heart.
    The album was mainly produced by Max Martin and Rami Yacoub, but it counted with the collaborations of Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, Jake Schulze, Mutt Lange, Per Magnusson, David Kreuger, Steve Lunt, Larry "Rock" Campbell, Kristian Lundin, Rober Jazayeri, Paul Umbach, Timmy Allen, Barry J. Eastmond and Eric Foster White, the latter of which produced You Got It All, a cover from The Jets, which was originally recorded for her debut album.
    Most of the producers also provided the lyrics of the tracks, but additional songwriters include Alexander Kronlund, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (for the Satisfaction cover), Shania Twain (for Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know), Keith Scott, Jörgen Elofsson, Andreas Carlsson, Diane Warren (When Your Eyes Say It), Jason Blume, Eugene Wilde, Rupert Holmes (You Got It All) and George Teren. Britney herself co-wrote Dear Diary.
    The album was recorded in 1999 after her ...Baby One More Time Tour finished, most of the recording taking place in November. The recordings took place between New York, Hollywood, Orlando, Sweden and Switzerland. The first songs to be recorded at the Cheiron Studios in Stockholm were Oops!... I Did It Again, Walk on By, What U See (Is What U Get) and Don't Go Knockin' on My Door, followed by Stronger and Lucky, which along with Oops!, weren't finalized until January. Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know was recorded in December at Robert "Mutt" Lange's villa in Switzerland. Girl in the Mirror and Can't Make You Love Me were recorded in mid-January at Parc Studios in Orlando, Florida. She then recorded When Your Eyes Say It and One Kiss from You in New York, along with Dear Diary and Heart. Finally, in late February she recorded (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction at Pacific Recording Studios in Hollywood, California. You Got It All and Where Are You Now were outtakes from her debut album.
    Four singles were released in order to promote the album: Oops!... I Did It Again, Lucky, Stronger and Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know.

    She also embarked on a world tour, the Oops!... I Did It Again Tour, that lasted from June 20, 2000 through January 18, 2001.
    For the release of the album she held a special presentation in Tokyo and Paris, and she also made several appearances on MTV and other TV shows in the United States.
    The day of the release, she appeared on TRL to talk about the record, and she was signing some CD's for her fans.

    Feels like yesterday. I don’t think I bought it day of release but I definitely bought it before Lucky was released. I just remember buying it on the way to a family picnic and sitting in the car to listen to it
