Twenty years ago (yes, 20), the world of pop music changed forever -- and this song (and music video) played a big role. It's no secret Britney Spears is hailed as one of the main faces of the genre, not to mention one of the first names people think of when they look back to the '90s and '00s. We're tearing up just thinking about how far she's come, especially since her first hit, "...Baby One More Time," is now 20 years old!

  • Britney took to Instagram to commemorate the big anniversary with a heartfelt message for her fans.

    "It's hard to put into words what today means to me … 20 years ago, the world heard my music for the very first time!" the celeb mom wrote in her Instagram post about the 1998 hit song.

    "So much has happened since then … but what I really want to say is thank you to my amazing fans who have been there for me since day 1. Your support over the years has meant the absolute world to me!! Love you all!"
