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
Millennium – Backstreet Boys
Enema of the State – Blink-182
Blink-182’s third full-length Enema of the State dropped on June 1, 1999. Iconic pop-punk anthems including “What’s My Age Again?” and “All the Small Things” were some of the most memorable tracks to grace the album.
Ricky Martin – Ricky Martin
Ricky’s Martin’s self-titled album was released on May 11, 1999 as his fifth studio full-length. The lead track on the record was none other than the mega-contagious “Livin’ La Vida Loca”—and it doesn’t get any more ‘90s than that.
The Writing’s on the Wall – Destiny’s Child
Destiny’s Child debuted their second full-length The Writing’s on the Wall on July 27, 1999. Some of the R&B-pop album’s most popular hits included “Say My Name” and “Bills, Bills, Bills.”
