Los Angeles: It's 20 years since Christina Aguilera's hit single "Genie in a Bottle" released and the pop star says she is grateful for all the love and support. The 1999 song that went on to become a chartbuster was the lead single of Aguilera's self-titled debut album, which also received favourable reviews.
"Hi lovies! Today marks 20 years since #GenieInABottle was released... Got me feeling all types of emotional! "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!" Aguilera wrote in an Instagram post on June 22.
She also shared a clip with rushes from the track's video and the behind-the-scenes of its recording and making.
"Genie in a Bottle" was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), having sold more than 1.4 million copies in the US.
