Britney Spears is THE Queen of Pop!
Since we dubbed Justin Timberlake to be the current King of Pop, it only seemed right Britney Spears is the Queen of Pop! She has clearly made a comeback since her “Oops!…I Did It Again” days. With her recent rise back to stardom, and her past and current success, she is clearly the Queen of Pop!
Britney Spears did not become a star overnight. At an early age, Britney was clearly born for greatness. In 1992, she was on the popular entertainment competition Star Search. At the age of 11, she was chosen to be part of the Mickey Mouse Club which also had famous artists like Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera. After the Mickey Mouse Club ended, she landed a contract with Jive Records which would jump start her career to stardom.
Britney’s first single and album, “…Baby One More Time”, was a big hit right of the bat! This single shot to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and was on it for 32 weeks! Honestly, who can forget the music video with Britney Spear’s dressed as a Catholic School girl!
Hits that were also part of this album include “You Drive Me Crazy” and “From the Bottom of My Broken Heart.” Then, she released “Oops!…I Did It Again” which peaked at #9 on the charts in 2000. During her peak stardom teen pop days, she released other albums including Stronger, Britney Spears Greatest Hits: My Prerogative, In the Zone and Britney.
She has won countless MTV, Teen Choice, Grammy and Billboard Music awards over the years which speaks for itself. Recently, she won the Billboard Music Special Millennium Award! With this recent award, she is clearly still on top in the pop music industry!
She’s clearly now more popular than ever! She just released her new album, Glory, beginning a whole new era for Britney. Prior to the release of Glory, she released her new song, “Make Me…” featuring G-Eazy. So far, it already has almost 21 Million YouTube views!
Clearly, this is album is meant for Glory! In recent news, Lifetime announced they want to do a biopic of Britney. Natasha Bassett will be playing the pop queen, and the movie will follow her rise to fame starting from her childhood in Louisiana. You know you’ve made it big when Lifetime wants to do a movie about you!
What a career so far Britney Spears has had! From being the Pop Princess of the 90’s to the present Pop Queen, she is truly an amazing artist! If you want to see her LIVE, she has a show currently in Las Vegas!
