"Hi lovies! Today marks 20 years since #GenieInABottle was released... Got me feeling all types of emotional!

"At just 18 years old, I remember coming home from Japan and seeing that it had reached #1 on the Billboard charts and feeling so grateful and happy that you guys loved it as much as I did. Thank you thank you thank you for riding with me all these years. My fighters, I love you!" Aguilera wrote in an Instagram post on June 22.

She also shared a clip with rushes from the track's video and the behind-the-scenes of its recording and making.
