On Saturday, Briney Spears (38) celebrated the 20th anniversary of her second album “Oops … I did it again”. The album held a 15-year-record for the biggest first-week sales ever for a female artist and sold over 1,319,000 copies. The only album to beat it was Adele’s “25” album.
The pop star took to Instagram to express her gratitude to her fans, who had commemorated the anniversary by posting a video of the title track along with various promotional interviews.
