The magazine specialized in music Rolling Stone published on Tuesday a list that ranked the Top 100 simple debut that have come on the market, and that leads into number one in the u.s. Britney Spears with the song “Baby One More Time”.
“The list that we have formed is very much inclined toward those ‘singles’ that became the foundations of great careers, although there are a couple of artists of a single success,” explains the environment in the introduction to the listing, which notes that no account has been taken of issues of figures that had been made famous in musical groups and later began a solo career.
Of “…Baby One More Time”, the experts say that it was “one of those manifestos of the pop that ushered in a new sound, a new era and a new century”, and described as “a statement that caused divisions, and that drew the line between the past and the future.”
