Missed out on the limited edition "...Baby One More Time" LP? You can still listen to Britney Spears' iconic debut single on clear vinyl. Backstreet Boys, Big Pun & Joe, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé & Destiny's Child, Ginuwine, Jennifer Lopez, *NSYNC, OutKast, Ricky Martin, SWV, and TLC join the rave, too.
DerekPlease.com is once again the first to report on a Brit-Brit exclusive sure to "drive you crazy." Only 3,000 copies are being released of this Urban Outfitters nineties mixtape. The vinyl album cover features a faux CD mixtape design, with authentic details like handwritten Sharpie notes. It's sort of trippy and backwards, really; a vinyl release that's themed after the CD era. I dig it.
Interactive Track Listing
Click each song to watch its music video. So rad!
1. ...Baby One More Time - Britney Spears
It's Britney, bitch. An iconic #1 hit that reinvigorated youthful pop music years after Madonna began treading more mature ground. Starting this 90s album off with those three notes is high key genius.
2. Livin' la Vida Loca - Ricky Martin
This one was the go to jam in the car with my mom. I think I always sensed Ricky was gay like me.
3. I Want It That Way - Backstreet Boys
Honestly reminds me of the Burger King commercials. Iconic!
4. Pony (Radio Edit) - Ginuwine
I prefer the Rihanna version, "Jump," but the sexy original looked (err, sounded) great in "Magic Mike."
5. Bug a Boo (H-Town Screwed Mix) [#1s Edit] - Destiny's Child
A lot of basics forget Destiny's Child once had four members.
6. Still Not a Player - Big Pun feat. Joe
7. No Scrubs - TLC
Such an emotional and delicious R&B-pop song. Thank God they declined "...Baby One More Time"; Max Martin offered it to TLC before Britney Spears.
8. Tearin' Up My Heart (Radio Edit) - *NSYNC
I've always been more into *NSYNC than Backstreet Boys, sadly... it's my lot in life. They don't even tour or record music anymore!
9. If You Had My Love (Radio Edit) - Jennifer Lopez
Is this one of those ones people think Ashanti sings for her? All jokes aside, this song is such a bop. I do know her.
10. Right Here (Human Nature Radio Mix) - SWV
I didn't know this one as a kid, but fell in love with it a few months ago.
11. Genie in a Bottle - Christina Aguilera
Another #1 hit that launched a "Beautiful" pop career.
12. Ms. Jackson (Radio Mix) - OutKast
It's worth noting not all of these songs were released in the 1990s; "Ms. Jackson" dropped in October 2000. Maybe it was included by error, but as most of these tracks are from the end of the 90s, it fits.
The songs I annotated in the track list meant a lot to me growing up, and the others I'm coming to love as an adult looking back on the golden era of R&B. Urban Outfitters and Sony Music Entertainment compiled a solid 1990s Top 40 track list here.
You can pre-order "My 90s Mix" on UrbanOutfitters.com for $25.98. Its planned release date is November 17, 2017.
