Britney Spears' song 'Everytime' re-enters the charts for the first time in nearly 20 years

Britney Spears’ song ‘Everytime’ has entered the Top 100 on iTunes for the first time in nearly two decades.

Fans are revisiting the 2003 song after the singer revealed in her upcoming memoir she had an abortion after falling pregnant with her then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake.

Speculation has been swirling for years that ‘Everytime’ is a response to ‘Cry Me A River’.

However, following the bombshell revelation, many believe the song is about the pop icon terminating her pregnancy when she dated the ‘Sexy Back’ singer in 2000.
"It was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy. I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day,” she wrote in an excerpt in The Woman in Me, obtained by PEOPLE.
"This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated.

"But Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young."

According to music aggregator Kworb, the song currently sits at number 31 on the Top 100 US iTunes chart at the time of writing.

The music video, which debuted in 2004, contains one scene in a hospital, with one woman dying and one woman giving birth, which fans believe symbolizes Spears' unborn child.

One user wrote on X: “So we've been dedicating ‘Everytime’ to exes and our impossible fairytales when in reality Britney wrote the song in the process of healing the trauma of abortion... this is f**ked up like I’m gonna need some time to digest this.”

Another said: “The ‘Everytime’ music video hits different knowing Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake had an abortion.”

While a third commented: “I always wondered why ‘Everytime’ had a baby being born at the end of the video. I always thought it was out of place.

“Now I know it’s not out of place at all Britney is a beautiful icon. She showed her pain in 2004 and never spoke of an abortion. ...Almost 20 years later.”

However, some hit back at these claims.

One user wrote: “Don’t love that *they* collectively decided that ‘Everytime’ is about the abortion and they’re making it chart. That gives me the ick.”

While another shared: “I’m a Britney fan. I know ‘Everytime’ by Britney Spears is her apology song for cheating on JT. It’s not about abortion. The newborn baby in her music video symbolizes something else like a new life or keeping her vulnerability safe. Not abortion. Geez! Some fans are ridiculous.”
