Britney Spears shared a clip of a new version of her debut single “Baby One More Time” Friday that she said she shot on her phone Thursday while doing her laundry.
The “Gimme More” singer belted out an a cappella version of the 1998 hit, saying it was the first time she had shared her voice in an “extremely long time… maybe too long.”
Spears said she had asked for an alternate version of “Baby One More Time” for 14 years after she first donned pigtails and a school girl outfit as a teenager in the original music video, but producers refused to do it and she had little control over her career due to her conservatorship that started in 2008.
