  1. On February 14, 2013, will.i.am released the Scream & Shout (Remix) video featuring Britney Spears, Lil Wayne, Hit-Boy, Waka Flocka Flame and P. Diddy, after it leaked a day ahead of its planned released through a Chinese website. MTV news was at the filming of the video, where will.i.am said: A couple of days before the release, Britney teased a picture from the videoshoot, where she was wearing a Jeremy Scott x Adidas cage track jacket, to which Jeremy Scott himself tweeted about in excitement. Later in April, they talked about it briefly during a Google Hangout interview that was livestreamed The remix was so different from the original song, that it charted separately, debuting at #49 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. In 2016, a clean version of the video was uploaded to will's channel.
  2. On November 28, 2012, will.i.am released the music video for Scream & Shout, featuring Britney Spears. It was premiered during The X Factor, where Britney was participating as a judge at the time, and it was later uploaded to his official VEVO channel. The music video was directed by Ben Mor. It was filmed in October in Los Angeles. will.i.am described the concept for the video as "uber fresh fashion". He originally intended the video and the song to be released at the same time, but due to the song leaking, they had to officially release it a few days earlier. The music video doesn't really have a storyline but it's more about the imagery and symbolism of the song. We see will.i.am and Britney in front of white and black backgrounds, in different poses and activities, as well as some extras and shots of several objects. Ben Mor, who would work with Britney the next year for her music video Work *****, told MTV News that he had one word in mind for the production of this video "iconic". He said: He also commented in the relationship will and Britney had with each other on set: About the disco ball in flames: Ben Mor would also work with will and Britney in early 2013 to shoot the remix video of the song. Before the release of the videoclip, Britney Spears commented on working with will.i.am through an official statement: "There are few people on the planet who inspire me like will.i.am does. I couldn't be more excited to work with him again. I can't wait for people to hear the song and see the video." The music video became a hit. To this day, it's got over 800M views, making it the most watched video on YouTube of both artists. Related:
  3. On November 20, 2012, will.i.am released Scream & Shout featuring Britney Spears, the second official single off his fourth studio album #willpower. The song, which had already leaked online on November 17, was written by will.i.am, Jef Martens, Tulisa, Jean Baptiste and it was produced by Martens (also known as Basto) under the alias of Lazy Jay. The club banger references Britney's 2007 Gimme More with the phrase "Britney, *****!" The song went #1 in 24 countries, and it was at least top 5 in almost every other country it charted. In the UK, this was will.i.am's second consecutive #1, and for Britney, it would be her first #1 since Everytime (2004). In the United States, the electropop track peaked at #3 on the BBH100 but it became the first #1 song on the newly created Dance/Electronic Songs chart in January 2013. Britney and will.i.am had already collaborated in 2011 on the song Big Fat Bass, from her Femme Fatale album. In 2012, while Britney was working as a judge on the second season of The X Factor, will.i.am joined her as a guest during the Judge's house stage of the competition. In August she confirmed she had been recording on will's new single. In 2013 they would collaborate again, when will.i.am produced Britney's eighth studio album, Britney Jean, where he also appears as a featured artist on the track It Should Be Easy. At first, the track was rumored to be titled "**** ****" and it was confirmed to be part of will's new album, which was supposed to come out in October. However he pushed the release after several of the tracks leaked online. A music video for the song was shot in October, directed by Ben Mor, and it was released on November 28. will.i.am and Britney have never performed the song live together. However, will.i.am has done it by himself, including a notable performance with French singer Alizée. Britney on the other hand, included the song as an interlude on her Piece of Me show in Las Vegas. In January 2013, a remix was released featuring Waka Flocka Flame, Hit-Boy, and rappers Diddy and Lil Wayne, but this version was more urban, and significantly different as to chart separately on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2018, singer Tulisa won a lawsuit she had filed since 2012 against will.i.am. It turns out, she co-wrote with Jean Baptiste the original version of the song for her debut album, and recorded it as "I Don't Give a ****". The producer of the song didn't give one either, and decided to pass it to will.i.am who re-wrote it as a Britney duet. Despite her vocals appearing on the final track with Britney, she was not credited, thus the lawsuit. After she won, she's now entitled to 10% of the royalties of the song.
  4. Before Britney deleted this Instagram post (and posted another saying basically the exact same thing), her Britney Jean accomplice, will.i.am, commented on it saying he missed her. Maybe she saw his comment and that's why she deleted the entire thing. Would any of you like them to reunite in the studio? Delete Britney Jean next queen Except "Work *****" And "Now That I Found You" Now stream God & Shout :
  5. 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.
  6. I'm looking for PROOF of this conspiracy theory that Myah Marie sang most/all of the vocals on Britney Jean. As in, actual factual evidence that this is supposedly the secret truth. Saying "I'm a fan, I know her voice" is not proof, it's opinion. Saying "Britney doesn't sound like that" or "The lyrics obviously aren't her style" is also not proof, it's more opinion. Please do not waste your time spamming this topic with your feelings and emotions and hunches. I want receipts, kiddos My opinion: I do NOT think that Myah Marie had as big a part in these vocals as most people say. When I hear Myah Marie's own songs and the demos that she makes for Britney, it's clear to me that their voices are similar but not identical. I'm not sure why everybody is so quick to completely forget power of electronic engineering of voices and pitch adjustment and all sorts of really nifty technology (e.g. Auto-Tune) used all over the music industry to intentionally modify the original vocals. Britney Jean was obviously heavily edited vocally and in its overall production. I don't find this as a reason to entertain this ridiculous theory that Myah Marie is the main vocalist here. But if your claims can be fact-checked, then let's hear them.
  7. The fact that Sean Preston, a 10 years old kid, did to Glory so much more than Will.I.Am did to Britney Jean says a lot. Let's praise the royalty of music for a sec. Sean is a truly prince and he's definitely talented and gifted! He gave us Glory!
