...Baby One More Time is the debut studio album of American recording artist Britney Spears, released on January 12, 1999, by Jive Records. In June 1997, while Spears was in a negotiation 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 he wanted to pitch her to record labels, sending them a demo tape with an unused song from Toni Braxton. Jive Records was interested in working with Spears, and appointed the singer to work with producer Eric Foster White. After hearing the recorded material, Jive signed Spears for a multi-album deal.

Aside from Eric Foster White, Spears traveled to Sweden to work with producers Max Martin, Denniz Pop and Rami Yacoub, among others. Martin showed Spears and her management a track titled "Hit Me Baby One More Time", which was originally written for American R&B group TLC; however, when the song was submitted to them, they rejected it. Spears later claimed that she felt excited when she heard it and knew it was going to be a hit record. By June 1998, the album had been finished. The songs on ...Baby One More Time are sung by Spears in a mid-nasal voice, and lyrically talks about love and relationships.

Contemporary critics gave the album mixed reviews, who described the singer as a Madonna next door, despite considering it silly and premature. The album was successful on the charts, reaching the top five in several countries, while reaching number one in Canada and the United States. It also received several certifications around the world, including a fourteen-times platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), for shipments over 14 million units in the country. ...Baby One More Time is Spears' most successful album to date, selling over 26 million copies worldwide.

Five singles were released from the album, with "...Baby One More Time" becoming a worldwide success and also one of the best-selling singles of all time, with over nine million copies sold. The album was promoted with several appearances on live television, and also by the ...Baby One More Time Tour in 1999, with a second leg titled Crazy 2k Tour starting in 2000. Spears revealed she wasn't able to explore her vocal ability in the songs of the album. ...Baby One More Time marked the singer's progression as an artist, celebrity, and woman, and was also responsible for setting Spears' international pop culture icon image.

Background and development

Cquote1.png

I had been in studio for about six months listening and recording material, but I hadn't really heard a hit yet. When I started working with Max Martin in Sweden, he played the demo for 'Baby One More Time' for me, and I knew from the start it one was of those songs you want to hear again and again. It just felt really right. I went into the studio and did my own thing with it, trying to give it a little more attitude than the demo. In 10 days, I never even saw Sweden. We were so busy.

In June 1997, Spears was in talks with manager Lou Pearlman to join female pop group Innosense.[3] Lynne asked family friend and entertainment lawyer Larry Rudolph for his opinion and submitted a tape of Spears singing over a Whitney Houston karaoke song along with some pictures.[3] Rudolph decided he wanted to pitch her to record labels, therefore she needed a professional demo.[3] He sent Spears an unused song from Toni Braxton; she rehearsed for a week and recorded her vocals in a studio with a sound engineer.[3] Spears traveled to New York with the demo and met with executives from four labels, returning to Kentwood the same day.[3] Three of the labels rejected her, arguing audiences wanted pop bands such as the Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls, and "there wasn't going to be another Madonna, another Debbie Gibson, or another Tiffany."[3] Two weeks later, executives from Jive Records returned calls to Rudolph.[3] Senior vice president of A&R Jeff Fenster stated about Spears's audition that "It's very rare to hear someone that age who can deliver emotional content and commercial appeal. [...] For any artist, the motivation—the 'eye of the tiger'— is extremely important. And Britney had that."[4] They appointed her to work with producer Eric Foster White for a month, who reportedly shaped her voice from "lower and less poppy" delivery to "distinctively, unmistakably Britney."[5] Spears recorded ten songs with White, including "Autumn Goodbye", "E-Mail My Heart", "From the Bottom of My Broken Heart", "I'm So Curious", "I Will Still Love You", "Soda Pop", and "Thinkin' About You".[6] The singer also recorded a cover of Sonny & Cher's 1967 single "The Beat Goes On".[6] White was responsible for the vocal recording of the cover and song production, while additional production was done by English electronic music group All Seeing I.[6]

After hearing the recorded material, president Clive Calder ordered a full album.[5] She flew to Cheiron Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, where half of the album was recorded from March to April 1998, with producers Max Martin, Denniz Pop and Rami Yacoub, among others.[4][7] Martin showed Spears and her management a track titled "Hit Me Baby One More Time", which was originally written for American R&B group TLC; however, when the song was submitted to them, they rejected it. Spears later claimed that she felt excited when she heard it and knew it was going to be a hit record.[8] "We at Jive said, 'This is a fuckin' smash'," revealed the label's A&R executive at the time Steven Lunt;[9] however, other executives were concerned that the line "Hit Me" would condone domestic violence, later being revised to "...Baby One More Time".[8] The singer revealed that she "didn’t do well at all the first day in the studio [recording the song], I was just too nervous. So I went out that night and had some fun. The next day I was completely relaxed and nailed it. You gotta be relaxed singing ‘… Baby One More Time’."[10] By June 1998, the album was already done,[11] and Spears embarked on a promotional tour sponsored by L'Oreal.[12] ...Baby One More Time was then released as Spears' debut album on January 12, 1999.[13]

Composition

Spears had originally envisioned "Sheryl Crow music, but younger more adult contemporary" but felt all right with her label's appointment of producers, since "It made more sense to go pop, because I can dance to it—it's more me."[4] The album opens with the first single "...Baby One More Time", a teen pop and dance-pop song that begins with a three-note motive in the bass range of the piano, opening that has been compared to many other songs, such as "We Will Rock You" (1977), "Start Me Up" (1981) and the theme song of the film Jaws due to the fact the track "makes its presence known in exactly one second".[16][17][10] According to magazine Blender, "...Baby One More Time" is composed by "wah-wah guitar lines and EKG-machine bass-slaps".[10] Claudia Mitchell and Jacqueline Reid-Walsh, authors of Girl Culture: Studying girl culture : a readers' guide (2008), noted the lyrics of the song "gesture toward [Spears] longing for the return of an ex-boyfriend."[18] The next song and third single, "(You Drive Me) Crazy" runs through a moderatly slow dance beat,[19] and has a rhythm and blues similar melody mixed with edgy synthesized instrumentals.[20] The third track and second single "Sometimes" is a heartbroken ballad,[21] where Spears declares at the beginning of the song "You tell me you're in love with me/That you can't take your pretty eyes away from me/It's not that I don't wanna stay/But every time you come too close I move away".[22] Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic noted the song has "a catchy hook and endearing melody, with a reminiscent euro-dance rhythm."[1]

After "Sometimes" is ...Baby One More Time's fourth track, "Soda Pop", a song that draws influences from bubblegum pop and dancehall,[1][14] and features background vocals from the co-writer Mikey Bassie.[6] Spears' vocals on the fifth track and fourth single, "Born to Make You Happy", spans over an octave,[23] and it's lyrics alludes too a relationship that a woman desires to correct, not quite understanding what went wrong, as she comes to realize that "I don't know how to live without your love/I was born to make you happy".[15] The sixth track and final single, "From the Bottom of My Broken Heart", is a sentimental teen pop ballad that runs through a slowly tempo.[24][25][26] "I Will Be There" features a guitar riff similar to Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn" (1997),[15] with a "rousing chorus about standing by your man (or a best friend or a house pet)", as noted by Kyle Anderson of MTV.[15] The eleventh track, "E-Mail My Heart", is a sensitive piano ballad where Spears' sings, "E-mail me back/ And say our love will stay alive".[15] The cover of Sonny & Cher's 1967 single "The Beat Goes On" is influenced by bossa nova and trip hop,[27][15] and features a similar sound to spy movies themes.[15]

...Baby One More Time received mixed reviews from contemporary critics. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic gave the album four out of five stars,[1] and commented that, by the time Spears launched her career, "everything old was new again", comparing the album to Hangin' Tough (1988) by New Kids on the Block.[1] Erlewine further complimented the quality of the singles while praising Max Martin, "who is also the mastermind behind Spears' debut."[1] Entertainment Weekly's Beth Johnson noted the singer "sounds remarkably like the Backstreet Boys' kid sister", saying, however, that this was "not surprising, since BSB hit-meister Max Martin wrote the candy-pop-with-a-funky-edge smash debut."[30] Robert Christgau commented Spears portrayed a "Madonna next door" in the album with songs like "...Baby One More Time" and "Soda Pop",[29] while Craig McDennis of The Hamilton Spectator said the album "offers a glib compendium of soul/pop cliches, served with a giddy, uptempo verve that recalls Debbie Gibson on a chocolate high."[34] Amazon.com's Rickey Wright gave ...Baby One More Time a mixed review, saying that "a few of the disc's cuts are pleasantly catchy",[14] noting, however, "neither does the 17-year-old Spears's debut album contain anything else that remotely approaches that instant hit single ['...Baby One More Time']."[14] Billboard's Paul Verna considered the album "a top 40-ready workout filled with hook laden songs from the same bag as the title cut".[28]

Toronto Sun journalist Jane Stevenson found the album "somehow appropriate that the first new teen queen of 1999 is a former Mousketeer",[27] despite commenting that "for the most part, this 11-song collection threatens to turn your brain into mush."[27] Stevenson, however, noted "it's only when the material slightly elevates itself, that Spears -- who counts her favourite singers as Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Michael Jackson -- is not half bad",[27] praising songs like "Sometimes", "Soda Pop", "I Will Be There", and the cover version of "The Beat Goes On".[27] Kyle Anderson of MTV said he "was surprised in more ways than one" with his first listening of ...Baby One More Time, commenting he "expected there to be a lot of filler (there sort of is), though I didn't expect it to be as odd (at least sonically) as it ended up being. There has never been any mystery to why Spears became such a superstar, but these songs probably would have been huge even if Britney wore burlap sacks in all of her videos."[15] Barry Walters of Rolling Stone gave the album two stars out of five,[32] and compared the album's sound to early hits of Debbie Gibson, Mariah Carey, and Samantha Fox.[32] Walters also said that "while several Cherion-crafted kiddie-funk jams serve up beefy hooks, shameless schlock slowies, like 'E-Mail My Heart', are pure spam."[32] A NME reviewer rated ...Baby One More Time 1 out of 10, saying that "we seem to have reached crisis point: pubescent pop is now so rife that 17-year-old Britney 'lizard-lounge' Spears is already halfway through her lucrative showbiz career".[31] He also noted the album as preamture, commenting, "hopefully, if she starts to live the wretched life that we all eventually do, her voice will show the scars, she'll stop looking so fucking smug, she'll find solace in drugs and we'll be all the more happier for it. Now grow up, girl. Quick!"[31] Amanda Murray of Sputnikmusic felt that, "with the exception of the terrific title track, ...Baby One More Time is a collection of either competent pop songs underwhelmingly executed or underwhelmingly written pop songs competently executed."[33]

Spears started to promote the album in 1998, when she did a small promo tour in malls and food courts around the US, mostly in larger cities. Her set was around 30 minutes, and she had two female dancers with her on the stage. The promo tour is also known as the L'Oreal Mall Tour, because it was sponsored by L'Oreal.[12] Spears made many promotional appearances including talk shows and live performances all around the world to help promote the album.

Tour

On March 5, 1999, it was reported that Spears was planning her first headlining tour to support her first studio album.[94] Shortly after, she announced that the tour would start in July.[95] On May 12, 1999, Tommy Hilfiger was announced as the main tour sponsor. During the time of the announcement, Spears was being featured in the "AllStars" campaign launched by the company.[96] On December 17, 1999, during the premiere of the music video of "From the Bottom of My Broken Heart" on TRL, Spears called the show to announce March US tour dates. The extension, entitled Crazy 2K Tour, was considered a prelude to her future world tour.[86][97] The leg's main sponsor was Got Milk?. Media director Peter Gardiner explained, "Britney is magic with teen-age girls, and that's an absolutely crucial target for milk". Spears shot an advertising campaign to be shown before her performances began.[98] The secondary sponsor was Polaroid and the corporation released the Polaroid I-Zone as the official camera of the tour. Spears also used the I-Zone onstage to take pictures of the audience and further promote the product.[99]

The show was divided into various segments, with each segment being followed by an interlude to the next segment, and it ended with an encore.[100] The setlist consisted of songs from her debut album and several covers.[100] Some changes were made during the 2000 leg, with the covers replaced by songs Spears premiered from her second studio album, Oops!...

Legacy

Following her debut, Spears was credited with leading the revival of teen pop in the late 1990s. The Daily Yomiuri reported that "[m]usic critics have hailed her as the most gifted teenage pop idol for many years, but Spears has set her sights a little higher-she is aiming for the level of superstardom that has been achieved by Madonna and Janet Jackson."[107] Rolling Stone wrote: "Britney Spears carries on the classic archetype of the rock & roll teen queen, the dungaree doll, the angel baby who just has to make a scene."[108] Rami Yacoub who co-produced Spears's debut album with lyricist Max Martin, commented, "I know from Denniz Pop and Max's previous productions, when we do songs, there's kind of a nasal thing. With N' Sync and the Backstreet Boys, we had to push for that mid-nasal voice. When Britney did that, she got this kind of raspy, sexy voice."[109] Following the release of her debut album, Chuck Taylor of Billboard observed, "Spears has become a consummate performer, with snappy dance moves, a clearly real-albeit young-and funkdified voice ... "(You Drive Me) Crazy", her third single ... demonstrates Spears's own development, proving that the 17-year-old is finding her own vocal personality after so many months of steadfast practice."[110] Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic referred to her music as a "blend of infectious, rap-inflected dance-pop and smooth balladry."[1] Spears later commented, "With ...Baby One More Time, I didn't get to show my voice off. The songs were great, but they weren't very challenging".[111] Sputnikmusic writer Amanda Murray noted the album "offers a marker for Spears' progression as an artist, as a celebrity, and as a woman."[33]

Spears became an international pop culture icon immediately after launching her recording career. Rolling Stone magazine wrote: "One of the most controversial and successful female vocalists of the 21st century," she "spearheaded the rise of post-millennial teen pop ... Spears early on cultivated a mixture of innocence and experience that broke the bank".[112] She is listed by the Guinness World Records as having the "Best-selling album by a teenage solo artist" for ...Baby One More Time, which sold over thirteen million copies in the United States.[113] Melissa Ruggieri of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported, "She's also marked for being the best-selling teenage artist. Before she turned 20 in 2001, Spears sold more than 37 million albums worldwide".[114] Barbara Ellen of The Observer has reported: "Spears is famously one of the 'oldest' teenagers pop has ever produced, almost middle aged in terms of focus and determination. Many 19-year-olds haven't even started working by that age, whereas Britney, a former Mouseketeer, was that most unusual and volatile of American phenomena — a child with a full-time career. While other little girls were putting posters on their walls, Britney was wanting to be the poster on the wall. Whereas other children develop at their own pace, Britney was developing at a pace set by the ferociously competitive American entertainment industry".[115] ...Baby One More Time is Spears' most successful album to date, with worldwide sales over 26 million copies.[116]
