After finishing her ...Baby One zaidi Time Tour and vacationing for 6 days, she returned to New York City the week of September 20, 1999 to begin recording her follow-up to her debut. She however didn't start recording the bulk until November 1999. The only songs that were recorded at Max Martin's Cheiron Studios from November 1–7, 1999 were "Oops!... I Did It Again", "Walk On By", "What U See (Is What U Get)", and "Don't Go Knockin' On My Door". The songs "Stronger" and "Lucky" were recorded, but the final mixes weren't complete until January 2000, along with the album's first single, "Oops!...I Did It Again". "Where Are wewe Now" was recorded in November at Cheiron and finished at Battery Studios, NYC in January 2000.
On January 7, 2000, Britney was about halfway through the recording process of the album. She has been working on the (then untitled) album both in the U.S. and in Sweden. Spears alisema that this time around, "The album will be a bit funkier and edgier than [her] awali material". At the time she was in New York City recording new songs and finishing up songs she began working on in November and December. "When I did the first album, I had just turned 16. I mean, when I look at the album cover, I'm like, 'Oh, my lordy,'" she said. "I know this inayofuata album's going to be totally different, especially the material. I just got finished recording the first six tracks in Sweden two months ago, and the material is so much zaidi funkier and edgier. And, of course, it's zaidi mature because I've grown as a person too." Britney was heavily pressured for the follow up album due to ...Baby One zaidi Time's" huge commercial success: "It's kind of hard following ten million, I have to say. But after listening to the new material and recording it, I'm really confident with it." "Can't Make wewe upendo Me"'s instrumental track and melody were recorded in the fall of 1999 in Sweden, with Britney recording the vocals in mid-January at Parc Studios in Orlando, FL.
During the release of Oops!...I Did It Again, Britney alisema "I mean, of course there's some pressure, but in my opinion, [Oops!] is a lot better than the first album. It's edgier - it has zaidi of an attitude. It's zaidi me, and I think teenagers will relate to it more." Geoff Mayfield, director of charts at Billboard, adds that the decision to release Oops! less than a mwaka and a half after Spears' debut amounts to "very smart timing. My philosophy is, when wewe have a young shabiki base, get 'em while they're hot." Tour
The album had one supporting tour called Oops!...I Did It Again World Tour which had performances on North America, Europe and a promotional appearance in South America, that performance in Brazil took part of Rock in Rio.
