Album Background

After vacationing for six days following the completion of the "...Baby One More Time Tour" in September 1999, Britney Spears returned to New York City to begin recording songs for her next album; the majority of the recording took place in November.

The album featured contributions from Max Martin, Eric Foster White, Diane Warren, Robert Lange, Steve Lunt, and Babyface.

The songs: "Oops!... I Did It Again", "Walk On By" (later covered by Gareth Gates), "What U See (Is What U Get)", and "Don't Go Knockin' On My Door" were the first to be recorded at Martin's Cheiron Studios in the first week of November; followed by "Stronger" and "Lucky", which were finalized (along with the title track) in January 2000.

Spears recorded "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know" at Robert Lange's villa in Switzerland in December 1999; Lange produced the song. The song "Where Are You Now" was an outtake from her debut album. "Girl in the Mirror" and "Can't Make You Love Me"'s instrumental track and melody were recorded in the fall of 1999 in Sweden, with Spears recording the vocals in mid-January at Parc Studios in Orlando, Florida.

Spears returned to New York, linking up with producer Steve Lunt to record Diane Warren's song "When Your Eyes Say It" at Battery Studios on Friday, January 28, 2000, which preceded her TRL appearance that day.

The track "One Kiss from You" was also recorded at Battery Studios, but was later finished at 3rd Floor in New York City. Spears also recorded the last track for the album "Dear Diary" which would later be completed at East Bay Recording in Tarrytown, New York and at Avatar Studios in New York City.

Another song recorded during these sessions was "Heart". Her cover of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" was recorded with Rodney Jerkins at Pacifique Recording Studios in Hollywood, California during February 24–26, 2000 after attending the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards.

By January, the then-untitled album was halfway to completion; Spears had worked on it primarily in the United States and Sweden, and finalized material in New York City. She was heavily pressured after the huge commercial success of "...Baby One More Time", stating: "It's kind of hard following ten million, I have to say. But after listening to the new material and recording it, I'm really confident with it."

Upon the album's release, Spears said: "I mean, of course there's some pressure", and added: "But in my opinion, [Oops!] is a lot better than the first album. It's edgier – it has more of an attitude. It's more me, and I think teenagers will relate to it more."
