Christina Aguilera took us back to the glory days of 1999 and sent a training video from " Genius In A Bottle " on the legendary Bops 20th birthday.
What a simple story and innocent time it was – The Matrix was in the cinema, the Nintendo 64 was in its prime and Britney and The Backstreet Boys ruled the charts.
& # 39; Genius In A Bottle & # 39; was five weeks ahead of the Billboard charts in the US and was the second largest single sold of the year, just behind . Cher & # 39; s & # 39; s Believe .
WHAT TO LIVE A TIME.
To celebrate her milestone, Christina Aguilera wrote on Instagram:
"Hi lovies! Today, 20 years after the release of #GenieInABottle, I have felt all kinds of emotions! At just 18, I remember coming home from Japan and seeing that it reached # 1 on the Billboard charts, feeling so grateful and happy that you loved it as much as I did , Thank you, thank you, thank you for traveling with me all these years. My fighters, I love you!
She also shared a video of a rehearsal of the song that contained some deeply era-appropriate dance moves that you can see below:
