Britney Spears' debut album, ...Baby One More Time, was released 20 years ago, spawning Britney's Dance Beat

Not initially loved by critics and reviewers, the album eventually took off selling over 25 million copies and a few video games.
Britney Spears' debut album, ...Baby One More Time I remember when this album dropped and Britney's video began airing. Everyone loved the video and replicating her dance moves seemed to take over teenage lives. I thought it was a catchy song, but it makes me feel old to know it's twenty years old today. Feels like it came out much more recently :)

If you were really into Britney's dance moves, you could fire up Britney's Dance Beat on Nintendo and Sony game consoles and even PC. Versions of the game were released for Game Boy Advance on March 25, 2002, PlayStation 2 on May 8, 2002, and PC on June 19, 2002.)

Featuring music and video from Spears first albums, your goal is to pass auditions to become one of Britney's backup dancers. It's kind of mindless, but tie-in games were often rushed to coincide with various events. Some of them are quite good, but we don't expect too much from this genre.
