When thinking back on the music of the ‘90s, iconic names like Britney Spears,  The Spice Girls, NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys probably come to mind. While pop music certainly defined much of the decade, it definitely wasn’t the only powerhouse genre around—other major rock and R&B artists dominated the scene, from Blink-182 to Destiny’s Child.

We’ve rounded up six nostalgic albums that are celebrating the big 2-0 in 2019. Check them out below.

 

…Baby One More Time – Britney Spears

 

Britney Spears, the original princess of pop, released her debut album …Baby One More Time on January 12, 1999. While the iconic record featured hits like “(You Drive Me) Crazy” and “Sometimes,” they were no competition for “…Baby One More Time.

Millennium – Backstreet Boys

The ‘90s was the era all about pop boy bands. The Backstreet Boys dropped their third full-length Millennium on May 18, 1999. Some of the fan favourites included “Larger Than Life” and “I Want It That Way.”

 

Christina Aguilera

 

Continuing in the era of pop music, Christina Aguilera’s self-titled debut album was released on August 24, 1999, introducing fans to instant classic pop hits like “Genie in a Bottle,” “What a Girl Wants” and “Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You).”
