Britney Spears 'Baby One More Time' Chosen As Max Martin's Best Written Track
Music Times has ranked Swedish songwriter/producer Max Martin’s best number 1’s from the last 15 years. Martin has achieved 18 number ones throughout his career. The track that takes the top spot on this list is none other than Britney Spears’ 1999 classic ‘Baby One More Time’. Not only was it the pop princess’s first number one single it’s also Martin’s first number 1.
"But seriously, nothing outside of ‘Toxic’ has touched this Spears since she began her career in 1999. Maybe it was the fact that she was in high school (perhaps you remember the music video), but this remains the sexiest Spears song to date. The trick for such a track is to get in the listener’s head without getting in their face, a skill that Spears (and to a degree Martin) have lacked in the years since this single. What some might consider schlock is actually a stellar pop music entry."
Two other Spears hits that made the list is 2011’s ‘Hold It Against Me’ which ranks at number 9 and 2009’s club banger ‘3’ made the list at number 16.
