Four Years on and we're still having this debate. Its getting tiring: - We know Britney was recording for a year (mid 2012 - mid 2013) with big name producers: She was seen on X-Factor in 2012 with Darkchild for no reason, and others tweeted). None of them featured on the album. - We know Producers pulled out or were scrapped for refusing to give Will.I.Am and his team the power to do final edits: William Orbit spoke out that the glitch wasn't his fault, they were Will.I.Am's and his team. - We have no images of Britney going to a recording studio any later than August 2013. We have no footage of Britney singing in I am Britney Jean (even though Adam said they were still working on the album). We have footage of Britney lying on a bed writing ''lyrics'', and we see her again, doing it outside the trailers during WB filming: There's no way Britney could still be writing tracks for Britney Jean, but was never filmed in the studio to record them, something that featured in every other Britney documentary and even Miley Cyrus' documentary - The only tracks Britney fans can agree only feature Britney are Perfume and Don't Cry: Neither of these tracks feature Anthony Preston as a vocal producer. Perfume features Will.I.Am as producer, but Christopher Braide as the vocal producer (both on the Dreaming mix, and album mix). - Producers who have made numerous Britney remixes who got their hands on the stems, have said that they didn't contain Britney's vocals for the chorus, and had files labelled Myah: We have the Passenger (CCMC Remix), which features different vocals on the second verse but Sia vocals in the chorus, Passenger (Acoustic Remix) with Sia Vocals in the chorus, Hold on Tight (acoustic remix), and Brightest Morning Star (Acoustic Remix). - The stems for Work ***** are available for viewing: Work *****'s ''LEAD'' vocal stem contains the same voice as the ''BGV'' stem, and neither voice is Britney's: Whenever Britney has performed this song on large platforms with clear audio (BBMA, and Apple Music festival). Britney precorded the vocals, despite not pre-recording songs that are (were at the time) five to seventeen years old at the time of performance. - The stems for Alien are available for viewing, and are very clearly labeled ''Brit'', ''Myah, and ''Ana'' (who wrote, atleast, the first first of the song, as her vocals feature her singing the second verse to non words eg. Dum da di dum dum). Myah is clearly heard imitating Britney's voice for half of the verses and the chorus: Only Ana Diaz is listed as an Additional Vocalist for Alien. Myah is not listed, despite having vocals present. - Body Ache was written by Myah Marie, but she is not credited as a backing vocalist: In the booklet's credits, there is no reference to addition backing vocalists or additional vocals. - The Britney Jean Booklet, when compared to the Femme Fatale and Circus, is more cautious about its phrasing in regards to vocals, and in some tracks (see BODY ACHE), does not reference backing vocalists: Both FF and Circus have very clear layouts, and credits are given on each track, as is standard protocol. - The demos for Tik Tik Boom (seven writers, Britney listed as first), and Passenger leaked (five writers, Britney listed first), and what is clear is that there were minimal changes to non existent: Britney had little input on these songs. - Tik Tik Boom features T.I.. Britney usually is complimentary of her collaborator, both as singers, rappers, writers, artistics and people: Britney only spoke about TI once, and had very little to say about him. - Britney is listed as the main first song writer in the credits for Perfume. In a number of interviews, Sia stated and alluded (''Thanks Britney for the...umm...Window treatment!'') that Perfume was already finished by the time Britney's team contacted her. Sia has no qualms about being brutally honest about her song writing in regards to Rihanna and Beyonce: Britney had little input into Perfume - Britney's interviews for Britney Jean were incredibly controlled and questions were prescreened, most of the interviews contained no new information, and Britney had a very limited vocabulary: Britney had little to no interest in the album. - During the Listening Party for Britney Jean, Britney sat twiddling her microphone wire, had trouble answering questions, or completely silent for two thirds of the album, and Will.I.Am answered questions for her, despite the fact that it was Britney's album, with supposedly Britney lead lyrics: Britney had little interest or input, and knew it wasn't an acceptable album. but overall: - We have to have these debates about vocals. Regardless of what Britney album is your favourite and your least favourite, a fans, we have always been able to identify Britney's voice in whatever form she's chosen to present it. We know the big, deep belts and southern accent and drawls of the Baby album, because we're able to follow them down through her later albums. We know the Punchy attitude she brought on the Oops album, because she brought it down through her later albums. We know the breathy vocals, cracks, vocal fry and her use of the falsetto range more often because it stayed. We recognise Britney's simple but honest writing style from ITZ. With Blackout, she brought everything to the table and was willing to play around and have fun in the studio but still deliver. Circus, had all the elements of the previously mentioned albums, and even on tracks like Mannequin, her accent was still there. On Femme Fatale, the vocals were simple pop melodies, as is Dr. Luke/Max Martin's style at the time, there was no writting, and Britney had little interest in this album also, but all the elements were there, and on Pretty Girls, Toms Diner and ALL of Glory, all these qualities reappear; So what made Britney Jean the odd one out so much so that it featured very little of any of these qualities, and unrecognizable voice? no slight shakes to the vocals, no drawl or growl, different emphasis on phrases, a higher tone to her voice both singing and speaking, that has never existed on any album before or since? Britney didn't sing on the Majority of the album. Move on.
