The song was the lead single off Britney’s second album, which was named after the track.

It was a commercial success and peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 2000, while also securing her a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

The song is remembered for its video (and her outfit), but the experience was far from easy for Spears.

In addition to the warm suit, MTV reported at the time that she had to contend with a serious head injury after a camera fell on her.

Despite her mother Lynne Spears’ fears that she might have suffered a concussion, Britney merely got stitches from a doctor on set and rested for four hours before resuming work.
