Listen to Britney Spears on iHeartRadio

In honor of Britney Spears' new video for her b**chn' new single "Work B**ch," let's throw it back to 2001 - "I'm A Slave 4 U."

This video single-handedly proves why Britney is a goddess. First of all, let's take a look at the title: "I'm A Slave 4 U." Where do we even begin? A: she uses the number 4 in place of "for" and U in place of "you." GENIUS! Why spell out the words when you can just use numbers and single letters?! And B: how can she just do this in 2001?! Because she's Britney b**ch, that's why! She probably revolutioned text messaging as we knew it back then.

Also, remember Brit's bod in this?! OH MY GODNEY. Just look at her muscles glisten. HELLO ABS!

"Oh hey y'all. Yeah, I wear underwear - OVER my leather jeans." She is solely the only person who can do this.

FINALLY, this was the year she performed "Slave 4 U" at the Video Music Awards WEARING A GIANT SNAKE around her neck. She looks like an Amazon jungle goddess! No fear - that snake knows who its master is. 

And this is why we are all slaves for 4 Britney. Re-live the entire glorious video below:
