The MMC was her stepping stone to making it big. It helped her earn a resume in the entertainment field.

After the MMC ended, she got in touch with Larry and he took her record label hunting. JIVE took an interest in her, so they set up an audition for her where she sang Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" for the label execs. They liked it, so they gave Britney the option to cut a real demo tape.

Some producer had a Toni Braxton song left from her album sessions called "Today". Britney recorded the song and scored a contract.

She then started working with Eric Foster White and then Max Martin where she really grew into her own star vs what the label originally inteded for her.

They ruined her voice. All you need to know.

 

edit: I do love current Britney, but what I wouldn't do for her to sing from her guts again. I mean, her forcing her unnatural viice is the main reason she doesn't sing live

She's been a chain smoker for 2 decades. You think she can even sing still?

After the MMC was cancelled, she headed back to Louisiana and tried to live a normal life for a while. She was the most popular girl in the 9th grade, became a great basketball player and went to prom with Reg Jones whom she dated. Then she got fed up with the simple life and started sending some demos to several producers. Meanwhile, Lynn Harless (JT's mother) wanted to put together a girl group (Innosense). Britney met with the other girls and saw they were all competing with each other to be the #1 star, so she decided not to be involved. Britney wanted a solo career, so Lynne called Larry Rudolph whom she already met before and kept contact over the years. Larry liked her tapes and sent Britney to NY. Mercury Records and Sony rejected her, and she got a deal with Jive and the rest is history.

After MMC

 

Britney was dating Reg Jones and was producing an album with Stone Creek Productions.

Britney was also almost a member of the female group Innosense run by Lou Pearlman.

Larry told Lynne they should turn that deal down and shop Britney as a solo artist.

From there Britney went on and auditioned for Mercury and Sony and they turned her down.

Britney's last audition with Jive Britney was signed to development deal.

Reg Jones (1995-1997)

Before she was a big deal in the pop music scene, Britney Spears was just a regular teen growing up in rural Louisiana. And her boyfriend at 14 was a guy by the name of Reg Jones who, as Us Weekly would reveal years later, was the one Spears lost her virginity to. Spears' lawyer Eric Ervin admitted to Us that Spears' "virgin" image was a "PR blitz." So much for that!

This is not true! When he was asked about the virginity thing, he said no they did not have ***, and then in other interview somebody gave him money to say that... so.....

I don't think she was as famous as most of the Disney stars have been recently. It was different back then as The Disney Channel wasn't a regular cable channel that's easily accessible like it is now (it was sort of a premium channel back then, or you had to really search for it). Nickelodeon was the main children's network, so kids/teens on Disney shows were not as known as the ones on Nick.

Sometime in 1996 she was signed onto Stonecreek Records and they tried to produce a ballad album, however something happened with the label and that was scrapped. One working song title was 'Take It Away', heard by Eric Foster White.

She started working with Jive around June 1997 and was first put with Eric Foster White... they tried to get her into a pop sound and away from the ballad or Whitney style she was used to sing.  Britney worked with White for a while, stemming 'I'm So Curious' in August 1997 and a bunch of other songs which remain unreleased. Jive was okay with White's results, but when Jive saw Martin and his work with Robyn, they got him onto the album and she happily converted to the star we know now. They flew her out to Sweden and finished off the album. The Beat Goes On was White's last piece with Britney under pressure to do pop work instead of ballads and replaced You Got It All, which was originally intended for the album.

 

The album was originally titled Britney Spears... earlier artwork from 98' shows this. But BOMT blew up and the rest is history.

You Got It All was included on Oops! due to a contractual agreement, and White was never called up to help Britney again.

 

Where Are You Now was also written for BOMT, however JIVE  pushed the album to go to a pop sound.  It was re-recorded for Oops.
