Britney Spears Becomes First Throwback Thursday Hall-of-Famer With ‘…Baby One More Time’
Britney Spears has become our first-ever, fan-voted Throwback Thursday Hall-of-Famer, as the iconic pop songstress took the win for four consecutive rounds with her breakout hit ‘…Baby One More Time.’ Congratulations to Spears and all of the fans who voted for her week after week!
For her first round of competition, Spears took on fellow ’90s teen queen Christina Aguilera and her breakthrough chart-topper, ‘Genie in a Bottle.’ It was a tough race to the top, as tens of thousands of people casted their opinion on the ultimate throwback jam — but Brit overcame Xtina by a hair, taking 51% of the votes in the end.
The next two rounds were a bit easier for Queen Brit, since she kind of dominated over her contenders, ‘N Sync and the Spice Girls. During the second round, ‘…Baby One More Time’ annihilated (not a verb we ever thought we’d use in accordance with this song) ‘Tearin’ Up My Heart,’ and it must’ve been sweet for Brit to know that she’s got more ’90s cred than her ex JT. She then went on to beat the Spice Girls’ ‘Wannabe,’ showing that power in numbers is no match for Spears.
Finally, another supergroup of ladies tried to beat Brit in her last week, as she took on Mya, Pink, Lil Kim and Xtina yet again, but this time with the collaborative classic ‘Lady Marmalade.’ Again, Spears exhibited her staying power and ability to fly solo, as she won over the quartet to secure her Hall of Fame status.
Congrats to Brit again! ‘…Baby One More Time’ is now retired to PopCrush’s Throwback Thursday Hall of Fame, where you can play it on repeat till the world ends.
