"Born to Make You Happy" was released 18 years ago today!
"Born to Make You Happy" is a song recorded by American singer Britney Spears for her debut studio album, ...Baby One More Time (1999). It was released on December 6, 1999, by Jive Records, as the fourth single from the album in European countries. Before recording the song, Spears had to ask the writers of the song, Andreas Carlsson and Kristian Lundin, to re-write it, since it was a sexual song. The singer first recorded her vocals in March 1998, and re-recorded them later in the same year. The dance-pop and teen pop song alludes to a relationship that a woman desires to correct, not quite understanding what went wrong, as she comes to realize that she was "born to make [her lover] happy".
#1: Denmark, Ireland, UK Top 5: Belgium, Europe, Finland, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland Top 10: Austria, France, Italy Top 20: Spain
In my opinion, "Born to Make You Happy" is one of her best releases ever, and the best single from her debut. It's such a feel-good song and it has aged so well. Not releasing this WW was a huge mistake! At least it was a massive hit in Europe and a #1 hit in the UK.
MusicRecords wrote:^girl bye songs like Toxic or Circus leave this in trash
Tbh, I think "Circus" is one of the weakest tracks on the album and "Toxic" has always been overrated xD None of the songs would make my personal Britney Top 50 xD
Songs I consider to be better than those two: ...Baby One More Time Sometimes (You Drive Me) Crazy Born To Make You Happy E-Mail My Heart Oops!...I Did It Again Lucky Stronger What U See (Is What U Get) Walk On By Can't Make You Love Me When Your Eyes Say It Where Are You Now Girl In The Mirror I'm a Slave 4 U I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman Boys Overprotected When I Found You Before The Goodbye Bombastic Love Cinderella Me Against The Music Everytime Breathe On Me The Answer My Prerogative Do Somethin' Someday (I Will Understand) Gimme More Piece Of Me Radar Get Naked (I Got a Plan) Freakshow Toy Soldier Why Should I Be Sad? If U Seek Amy Out From Under Phonography Amnesia Quicksand Blur Shattered Glass Lace And Leather 3 Hold It Against Me Till The World Ends Criminal Inside Out (Drop Dead) Beautiful How I Roll Gasoline He About To Lose Me Brightest Morning Star It Should Be Easy Tom's Diner Do You Wanna Come Over? Make Me... Slumber Party Mood Ring Just Luv Me Just Like Me Change Your Mind Coupure Életrique
So in the end, neither "Toxic" nor "Circus" would end up being inside my personal Top 60 xD
