Will: The “Scream & Shout” Accent Was Britney’s Idea

April 23, 2013 By Jordan Miller

Britney’s British accent on “Scream & Shout” is wildly famous, and it was her idea!

Will played the demo for Britney, which at the time featured Tulisa’s voice, and Britney loved the sound of the accent in the song.

“The original demo was sang by Tulisa. Things happened to where I was like, let’s get Britney on it. So Britney sung it regular and we came and listened to it again and she was like, ‘I kind of like it with the English accent. Want me to do that? I love doing that, I like playing characters.’

That was her idea actually.”
