A newly unearthed vintage video of Britney Spears has surfaced showing the singer doing something incredibly rare — actually singing live.
Britney fan site MuuMuse has posted the 12-minute video, presumed to be from 1998, featuring a teenage Spears showcasing her debut album in Singapore.
It was a decidedly unglamorous beginning for Spears, who recorded her debut album in March and April 1998 in Sweden with hit maker Max Martin.
In the video Spears performs with no band or backdrop, and sings in front of road cases in what looks like a hotel. No audience members are visible in the clip, which has apparently been a prized item among Spears collectors, and there is no applause.
She sings "Baby One More Time," a No. 1 hit globally after being released in October 1998, and has sold over 10 million copies. Spears then sings the follow-up ballad "Sometimes" and "You Got It All," which would later surface as a bonus track on her second album.
