When was her big break?

Britney Spears

She began auditioning for pop bands and caught the eye of Jive Records' Jeff Fenster.

He teamed her up with producer and writer for a then-popular Irish boyband called Boyzone, Eric Foster White, and R&B writer Max Martin.

Together they came up with her super hit - Baby, One More Time - in 1998.

After touring schools and setting up phone lines for fans to listen to her tracks, Britney eventually joined boyband 'N Sync on tour.
