A few days after her recent legal victory in court, Britney Spears shares her passion and love for music with her fans, singing a powerful new version of her hit song ‘Baby One More Time’.
Spears, who was expelled from her conservatory last November after 13 years, took to Instagram to post a brand new version of “Baby One More Time,” the single that catapulted her to superstardom as a teen when she released it in 1998.
“I haven’t shared my voice in an extremely long time… maybe too long,” Spears wrote Friday in her caption, which accompanied a video of her belting out the song that made her famous — but this time an a cappella one. Version.
Spears sings with power in the video, showing off her raw vocal skills, which garnered a lot of praise in the comments section. Spears’ new version includes one notable difference from the original lyrics: “Give me a fucking sign,” she slams hard in her new video, which she says she recorded earlier this week.
In her caption, the singer alludes to the fact that she’s wanted to record a new rendition of the song for the past 14 years, which roughly corresponds to the time she’s spent under a conservatory. “The team said no,” Spears wrote.
Spears wrote of her family, who has regularly criticized her on her social media since leaving conservatoire: “They ruined it for me, embarrassed me and made me feel like absolutely nothing.”
“I’m sharing this because I’m aware of my love and passion for singing,” her post continued. “And my own family made a fool of me … I will not be a victim.”
Spears was released from her conservatorship last year but her legal battle against her father Jamie Spears, who oversaw over her conservatorship for most of the time, continues and has been accused of abusing the conservatorship and hiring a security firm to conduct electronic surveillance over his famous daughter and the financial mismanagement of the star’s multimillion-dollar estate. Earlier this week, Spears had a major court victory when the judge ordered her father to sit for an upcoming testimony that her attorney, Mathew Rosengart, has been fighting for months.
“Baby One More Time” was released in 1998 as the debut single from Spears’ debut studio album of the same title, released in 1999 by Jive Records. The song became a worldwide hit and made the then 16-year-old crazy Spears an international pop icon. “Baby One More Time” topped the charts in more than 20 countries and is one of the best-selling songs of all time.
