When Crosses single “Vivien” came out, there was a good chunk of people wondering if one of the chorus melodies was a reference to Britney Spears‘ 1998 hit “Baby One More Time.” It was just subtle enough not to be incredibly obvious, but enough people picked up on it that questions started circulating. Turns out it absolutely was a reference to pop hit.

In an interview with Revolver, Crosses vocalist Chino Moreno said the melody was a “wink” toward Spears. “I think it may have been a slight wink,” said Moreno. “I think it’s funny how a lot of people are like, ‘Oh my god, did you hear this?’ And to me, I kinda just have a little smile about it. It’s one of those things where … yeah, I would just say it’s a possible little wink there.”

When asked if he was consciously referencing Spears or if it was just a happy accident, Moreno said “Yeah, I’d say I embellished on a couple little things in there to give it that wink, yeah.” So there you go – Crosses made you think about a pop hit from 1998.

Moreno also mentions later in the same interview that he hopes Crosses will play some shows in either spring or summer 2023.

“Yeah, we don’t have a specific timeframe but we’re hoping by late spring, summer [of 2023] for sure, to be out there,” he said. “I think we’re just trying to figure out the logistics of all of it. What the live performance is going to look like, who’s going to be involved, what it would be. But we definitely want to play some of these songs live. These songs lend themselves to a lot of experimentation live. We’re excited to see what that looks like.”
