Britney Spears's highly anticipated ninth album, Glory, dropped Thursday night like nothing else mattered. It even warranted its very own Twitter emoji. To celebrate the much-hyped release—and the pop star's triumphant return to the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday—we're taking a walk down memory lane with her best music videos. From "...Baby One More Time" to "Work B*tch," here are the best of the bunch. Nostalgia is a beautiful thing.

1. "Toxic"

The singer's epic nude bodysuit bedazzled with crystals will go down in history as one of the most iconic costumes.

2. "Oops! … I Did It Again"

Even though it's highly improbable to perform a concert in outer space, that doesn't make this video any less entertaining.

3. "I'm A Slave 4 U"

With her perfectly tousled hair, smoky eye, and hot pink scarf top with matching underwear, Spears radiated sexiness.

4. "… Baby One More Time"

The Catholic schoolgirl outfit put Spears on the map and inspired Halloween costumes for years to come.

5. "Lucky"

Lucky's story is presumably a fictional retelling of Spears life, which makes it all the more eerie when the singer is watching it unfold right in front of her.

6. "Me Against the Music (featuring Madonna)"

Nothing is more legendary than the two reigning queens of pop busting burlesque-style dance moves on either side of a wall.

7. "Work B*tch"

Performing in a desert with a whip in hand is an effective way to announce a residency in Las Vegas if we ever saw one.

8. "Womanizer"

By posing as various love interests in disguise, Spears exposes her man for the womanizer he is.

9. "Boys"

You can't compete with cameos from D.J. Qualls, Pharrell, and Mike Myers (in his Austin Powers persona), because, in case you forgot, Spears was a fembot in Goldmember.
