Taking it all the way back

Christina Aguilera shared a heartfelt post with fans as she celebrated the 20-year anniversary of her hit song 'Genie in a Bottle'

The singer took to Instagram on Saturday 22 June to mark the milestone, sharing a screenshot of the front cover of her self-titled debut album.

"Hi lovies! Today marks 20 years since #GenieInABottle was released... got me feeling all types of emotional!" she wrote. "At just 18 years old, I remember coming home from Japan and seeing that it had reached #1 on the Billboard charts and feeling so grateful and happy that you guys loved it as much as I did. Thank you thank you thank you for riding with me all these years. My fighters, I love you! #xxtina."

Genie in a Bottle sold more than seven million copies worldwide, and set the former The All-New Mickey Mouse Club star on the track to superstardom.

Christina followed her self-titled album with a Spanish album, Mi Reflejo, in 2000, and then 2002's Stripped, which spawned the racy hit single Dirrty.
Aguilera released her eighth studio album, Liberation, in June last year.
