Who released their debut album first?

Most people remember Spears and Aguilera hitting the airwaves in the late ’90s, but they were actually introduced to the public much earlier when they were cast on the Disney channel’s The Mickey Mouse Club in the early 90s. The series was a variety show that featured a cast, known as Mousketeers, singing popular tunes in front of a live studio audience.

Spears and Aguilera joined The Mickey Mouse Club in 1993. Their fellow castmates included Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake, and JT’s future bandmate JC Chasez. Aguilera also appeared on TV sets as a youngster when she competed in Star Search.

Following their time on The Mickey Mouse Club, Spears and Aguilera signed deals with record companies and each released their debut albums to global success. Spears’ first single was “…Baby One More Time,” which was released by Jive Records on Sept. 28, 1998. Aguilera’s first track off her debut album was “Genie in a Bottle.” It was released after Spears’ hit on June 1, 1999. Prior to her self-titled album, Aguilera did enjoy success in 1998 when she recorded the song “Reflection” for Disney’s Mulan soundtrack.
