7 Albums Turning 20 In 2019

Posted at January 7th, 2019 | by Shank | in Entertainment, Featured, Music

Hit Me Baby One More Time (Britney Spears)

The quintessential US teen-pop album, Britney Spears released her debut album in February 1999, featuring the  Baby One More Time,Born To Make You Happy, Sometimes and You Drive Me Crazy. The collection peaked at Number 2 in the UK and its combined sales to date stand at 1.21 million.

 

The Writings on The Wall (Destiny’s Child)

The group’s second album brought them to the masses in July. The collection may have peaked at Number 10, but its singles – Bills Bills Bills, Say My Name, Jumpin Jumpin – still make it an essential listen today. The group’s final and best-known line-up comprised Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams

P.S. Can you spot Beyonce on the cover?

2001 (Dr. Dre)

An album so good that Dre struggled for 11 years with a follow-up, 2001 is required listening for hip-hop fans and regularly appears in ‘Best Albums of All Time’ lists.

 

 

On The 6 (Jenifer Lopez)

J Lo released her debut album two decades ago this year, yet she hasn’t aged a bit (or the record, for that matter). On The 6 is a winning blend of R&B and Latin-pop that set her on course for global superstardom.

 

Supernatural (Santana)

After 17 studio albums, Santana went all out for their 18th collection Supernatural, blending their signature Latin rock with the current pop sound with the help of some of the world’s biggest stars, including Lauryn Hill, Cee-Lo Green and Eric Clapton. Featuring hits Smooth and Maria Maria (later sampled in DJ Khaled and Rihanna’s Wild Thoughts), Supernatural went on to win eight Grammys including Album of the Year.

Slipknot (Slipknot)

The arrival of Slipknot’s debut album brought a fresh perspective to nu metal; each track a sensory overload of thrash, speed and rap. It reached Number 37 on the Official UK Albums Chart but has since gone platinum with combined sales of 372,000.

 The Party Album (Venga Boys)

Truth be told, Dutch Euro-dance quartet The Vengaboys had no right to be as good as they were. Hits like Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!, We’re Going To Ibiza and We Like To Party! (The Vengabus) are, for many, defining moments of the late ’90s. Don’t believe us? It’s sold 555,000 copies.
