Spears is described as a pop artist and generally explores the genre in the form of dance-pop. Following her debut, she was credited with influencing the revival of teen pop in the late 1990s. Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone wrote: “Spears carries on the classic archetype of the rock & roll teen queen, the dungaree doll, the angel baby who just has to make a scene.” In a review of …Baby One More Time, Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic described her music as a “blend of infectious, rap-inflected dance-pop and smooth balladry.” Oops!… I Did It Again saw Spears working with several R&B producers to create “a combination of bubblegum, urban soul, and raga”. Her third studio album, Britney derived from the teen pop niche “hythmically and melodically”, but was described as “sharper, tougher than what came before”, incorporating genres such as R&B, disco, and funk.
Spears has explored and heavily incorporated the genres of electropop and dance music in her records, as well as influences of urban and hip hop, which are most present on In the Zone and Blackout. In the Zone also experiments with Euro trance, reggae, and Middle Eastern music. Femme Fatale and Britney Jean were also heavily influenced by electronic music genres. Spears’s ninth studio album Glory is more eclectic and experimental than her previous released work. She commented that it “took a lot of time … it’s really different … there are like two or three songs that go in the direction of more urban that I’ve wanted to do for a long time now, and I just haven’t really done that.”
…Baby One More Time and Oops!… I Did It Again address themes such as love and relationships from a teenager’s point of view. Following the massive commercial success of her first two studio albums, Spears’s team and producers wanted to maintain the formula that took her to the top of the charts. Spears, however, was no longer satisfied with the sound and themes covered on her records. She co-wrote five songs and choose each track’s producer on her third studio album, Britney, which lyrics address the subjects of reaching adulthood, sexuality, and self-discovery. Sex, dancing, freedom, and love continued to be Spears’s music main subjects on her subsequent albums. Her fifth studio effort, Blackout, also addresses issues such as fame and media scrutiny, including on the song “Piece of Me”.
Spears’s music has also been noted for some catchphrases. The opening in her debut single “…Baby One More Time”, “Oh, baby baby” is considered to be one of her signature lines and has been parodied in the media by various artists such as Nicole Scherzinger and Ariana Grande. It has been used in variating forms throughout her music, such as simply, “baby” and “oh baby”, as well as the Blackout track, “Ooh Ooh Baby”. On the initial development of “…Baby One More Time”, Barry Weiss noted Spears’s inception of the catchphrase from her strange ad-libbing during the recording of the song. He commented further, “We thought it was really weird at first. It was strange. It was not the way Max wrote it. But it worked! We thought it could be a really good opening salvo for her.” The opening line in “Gimme More”, “It’s Britney, bitch” has become another signature phrase. An early review of Blackout suggested the phrase was “simply laughable”. Amy Roberts of Bustle called it “an indelible cultural turning point, transforming a frenetic, floundering moment in the superstars career to one of strength and empowerment”.
