The “Britney Jean” controversy continues after some fans, and non-fans, began questioning its authenticity.
Underground music collectors began trading stems (individual parts of a song) from Brit’s eighth studio album – eventually falling into the wrong hands and finding its way onto the the Internet for all to hear. Namely Exhale.
In these stem packages, there are obvious (if you’re a die-hard stan) takes that showcases Britney’s voice. They’re also takes where it’s painfully obvious it ain’t the legendary Miss Britney Spears. WOMP. That, and the original stem file-names making the rounds used someone else’s name: “Myah Marie,” a background singer who lent her voice, and sounds a lot like Brit Brit, to the “Femme Fatale” and “Britney Jean” albums. In other words, some think they swapped Myah’s voice with Britney’s and tried passing it off like it was our girl.
Myah’s denied the allegation in the past, telling BreatheHeavy, “while I am so grateful for the opportunity to provide background vocals for Britney Spears on a small number of her most recent works, I most certainly cannot take credit for her tremendous talent as a singer.”
Now, Myah’s taken to Twitter to defend herself from the relentless Britney Army once again.
