There's no bad blood between Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, nearly 20 years after their breakup. 

Spears reflected on their headline-making split on Instagram on Wednesday, while dancing along to one of "genius" JT's songs. 

"This is my version of Snapchat or TikTok or whatever the cool thing you're supposed to do these days ????!!!!! As you can see I’m not really dancing folks …… I’m just very bored ?," she wrote. "PS I know we had one of the world's biggest breakups 20 years ago …… but hey the man is a genius !!!! Great song JT ✨ !!!! Pssss if you KNOW WHAT'S GOOD ? !!!!!!" 

Spears followed up with "Part 2" of her dance video soon after, writing, "13 turns wheeeeee ????????????? !!!!!!!

Timberlake and Spears were one of the hottest couples of the late '90s and early 2000s before their split in early 2002.

In a 2017 interview with ET, Lance Bass opened up about the possibility that Timberlake and Spears could come together for a musical collaboration. 

"That would be amazing," he said. 

As for whether there's too much history between Spears and Timberlake for that to happen, Bass said they have long since put the past behind them. "I would love to see it happen, and I don't think it's not going to happen," he continued. "They're good. They're friends."
