The 36-year-old singer, who debuted with the chartbuster in 1998 and went on to become a teen pop idol, took to Twitter Tuesday to thank fans.
“It’s hard to put into words what today means to me 20 years ago, the world heard my music for the very first time! So much has happened since then but what I really want to say is thank you to my amazing fans who have been there for me since day 1…
“Your support over the years has meant the absolute world to me! Love you all!” Britney said.
