Britney Spears is singing the song in her heart.
The Grammy Award winner, 40, took a break from washing laundry on Friday to play acoustically for her 41.8 million Instagram followers. She sang her 1998 debut single, “…Baby One More Time,” in a melancholy performance.
She captioned the photo, “This is me yesterday doing washing and separating clothes.” “I haven’t voiced my opinion in a very long time… perhaps too long… now here I am playing a different rendition of “Baby” at home.
She also discussed how her long-running effort to get the song updated and released, was reportedly unsuccessful because she had little influence on her career during her 13-year conservatorship.

After her conservatorship was ended in November, a source previously told PEOPLE that Spears is “talking a lot about her profession” and that she “loves creating music and wants to offer her fans a new album.” She appears to be concentrating on one item at a time.
Following the decision, Mathew Rosengart, the Glory artist’s attorney, referred to it as a “monumental day.” For the first time in ten years, we can state that one individual will determine what Britney does next. Britney has the final say,” he remarked. “Britney is a free woman as of today.”
Spears also shared a video of #FreeBritney fans rejoicing on the street outside the courthouse on Instagram to show her joy. “Good God, my love for my followers is insane! I anticipate crying the rest of the day! The best day ever… thank the Lord #FreedBritney, she wrote. “Can I get an Amen?
Jamie Spears’ father must be deposed as part of an investigation into his capacity as the conservator of Britney’s estate, according to Judge Brenda Penny, the Los Angeles justice who revoked the conservatorship, in a decision made on Wednesday.
