I was always a fan of Britney, but THIS SONG is what made me STANNNNNNN! I remember being so slayed and replaying it non-stop until the album was released.  And lets not forget that at the time, this was her BIGGEST HIT since BOMT on billboard.  A moment.

Still hoping she re-records the video one day though.

The day the pop world forever changed! This song is ICONIC!!! Pure pop perfection.

I remember hearing it the first time and I didn't know how I felt about it cause it was such a shift in sound and mood for Britney. Then I played it a few more times and was HOOKED! Still am hooked to this day. Never gets old, still sounds fresh, still has an infectious beat and still makes me (and everyone, Britney Stan or not) dance and cheer!
