The debut single of Pop Princess Britney Spears, titled "...Baby One More Time," was released on October 23, 1998. The song served as the lead single for her debut album of the same title.

Composed by Max Martin and co-produced by Rami, the song was initially intended for Backstreet Boys and TLC, under the title "Hit Me Baby One More Time." However, the song was turned down by both groups.

The song is regarded as one of the best-selling singles of all time and earned Spears two MTV Europe Music Awards for Best Pop and Best Song. In 1999, she was also recognized with the Teen Choice Awards for Choice Single and a Billboard Music Award for Female Singles Artist of the Year.
