I belive that this page should be moved back to "...Baby One More Time" as this is what the album is offically called and all of the pages link to the redirect page of "...Baby One More Time". Also the single is under the name "...Baby One More Time (single)". Ianblair23 02:14, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Oppose The punctuation is a designer's treatment on the album cover, and not actually part of the title. The song ought to be moved to Baby One More Time (single). Michael Z. 2005-08-11 21:56 Z

It was requested that this article be renamed but there was no consensus for it be moved. violet/riga (t) 21:18, 20 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

14 Million Mark Doesn't Mean 14 Million Copies Sold!

We all know that "Baby One More Time" was certified 14X platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America on July 19, 2004, as we all beleived that it sold 14 million copies or units! But, we're definitely wrong the album sold only 10,534,000 copies respectively. And the other 3,446,000 copies where shipped to retailers.

Clarity

Can somebody clarify (for those of us not Billboard chart wanks) if the sales numbers refer only to Baby, to its several mentioned variants, to the other albums referred to, or what? Trekphiler 06:28, 22 October 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Singles section - OVERKILL

This is just way too much. Not only should these images not appear anywhere but on the articles for the singles, but they are way too huge and all of the information shown here should already be in the individual articles for the singles. All of this is absolutely not needed here - it looks like a fansite. - eo 17:28, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

I feel like there should be a section for the singles. I'm guessing that since eo made this comment, somebody completeley removed the singles section. I think it would be very important/helpful to include a section for a short description of the singles of this album.Hpswimmer (talk) 01:53, 10 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Secret Message?

This looks weird. Is it a troll? If not, I'd like to see a source. "In the very early releases of the album, there is a hidden message after "The Beat Goes On". It had Britney Spears promoting some of the songs from the Backstreet Boys' album Millennium. There is a secret message check it watch here

U.S and Worldwide Sales as of 2009 (UPDATED)

As of July 2009, the album has sold 10,534,000 copies in the U.S. according to Nielsen SoundScan and USA Today News of 2006 with additional 1,600,000 sold at BMG Music Clubs click here However, Nielsen SoundScan does not count albums sold through clubs like the BMG Music Service, which were significantly popular in the 1990's.link

According to the FOX News and the Telegraph.Co.Uk News the album surpassed the 25 million mark. According to "People Magazine" the album had sold 24 million copies worldwide since October 7, 2002. It still stated on her website www.britney.com on her career highlights, "Baby One More Time" sold only 22 million copies worldwide...but the certifications there are false like Mexicos' AMPROFON certification and the Brazilian's ADBP are did not match on its websites..I do not trust this site...please site an reliable source on changing the worldwide sales figure.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Adelbutt123 (talkcontribs) 08:40, 6 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Professional Reviews and Worldwide Promotion

This article lacks professional reviews, I think its because it was on January 1999. And the promotion is a mess! Britney did a worldwide promotion for "Baby One More Time" like in Japan click here and Hey!Hey!Hey! and at the Festival Bar in Italy click here

Certification

The album is certified both 14×Platinum and Gold by RIAA. In fact, every album with more than 10 Platinum is automatically certified Diamond. Saying 14×Platinum means it is certified Diamond. Saying Diamond does not mean 14×Platinum. Therefore 14×Platinum should be used in the certification table. --Muhandes (talk) 06:48, 21 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bowling for Soup

The band did a version of this song first track on their "Go to the Movies" album, should that be mentioned on the article? Govvy (talk) 11:04, 3 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
