Britney Spears, Oops!...I Did It Again

EYE ON THE REPRISE Spears revisits past glory on her new single

B

Oops!...I Did It Again

Genre: Pop; Lead Performer: Britney Spears; Producer (group): Jive Records; Status: In Season

Those suggestive lyrics, that boombastic Max Martin production, those coy-nymphet come-ons, those ellipses: No, it’s not ”…Baby One More Time,” but a single so close to Britney Spears’ first hit that she could sue herself for plagiarism. As a statement of purpose, the single ”Oops!… I Did It Again” — on which Spears confesses ”I’m not that innocent” after leading a boy on — may be the supreme tart-pop anthem. But as music, it’s just a faded Xerox.
