Britney Spears Shares New Version Of ‘Baby One More Time’

While criticising her sister Jamie-Lynn for singing her songs live, Britney Spears admitted that she had 'wanted' to re-record a version of her popular 1990s song for '14 years' but had been told "no."

Britney Spears performed a cappella rendition of one of her best singles for her millions of fans! On Friday, July 15, the pop queen, 40, sang the legendary words to 1998’s “…Baby One More Time” in a video shared (then removed and re-posted) on her Instagram page. Britney demonstrated she still has the singing ability, belting out the lyrics with no background or music just her own vocal chops.

Spears confessed in a long essay that she had wanted to record an “alternative version” of the song for 14 years. “This is me yesterday doing laundry and separating clothes… I haven’t shared my voice in an extremely long time … maybe too long. And here’s me playing at my house with a different version of ‘Baby,'” she wrote in the caption of her Instagram post.

After scribbling out part of the song’s lyrics, Britney stated why she wanted a different take on the tune and claimed she was furious that her sister Jamie Lynn Spears, 31, had sung one of her songs at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards. “Well I have asked for what I wanted for 14 years… a different version of ‘Baby’ but have the producers actually work for me and put it together… a start,” Britney continued in her caption.

“But as the TEAM said NO and serves me with 4 girls, my sister included, doing a 5-minute version of 4 remixed songs to a T not even having to give effort or dance just shot it beautifully and the sound was NEW !!! They ruined it for me, embarrassed me and made me feel like absolutely nothing!!!” When Britney’s album’s lead single from the same year, a huge hit song, was released, she was just 17 years old.

The song, which Swedish music great Max Martin wrote and produced, went on to become one of the most popular songs in history after topping the charts in 22 different nations. Additionally, it was the top-selling single of 1999, and with 10 million copies sold, it is still a major force today. The Nigel Dick-directed schoolgirl-themed video is still recognizable today and received a lot of MTV airtime.
