So, Britney Spears probably/maybe/most likely didn’t sing all that much on her latest album, Britney Jean.
Yep, one of Britney Spears’ longtime backup singers, Myah Marie, who sounds EXACTLY like Britney, has been accused (revealed?) to be the one doing most/all of the singing on Britney Jean.
Recently, some stems (the different audio sources in a song, like the main vocals, backing vocals, etc.) from Britney’s song “Passenger” were leaked online by some of the song’s producers, and many of those “stems” for so-called Britney songs were labeled “Myah Marie.” If you listened to those “Myah Marie” stems, they sure sound a lot like Britney’s voice on the final song.
One insider even said, “You can hear that some parts sound more of somebody impersonating her than her actual voice. Some main vocals are drowned to the point where the background singer takes the lead place.”
All we’re saying is…why would a clip from a Britney Spears song, which sounds a lot like Britney, be sent to the producers but labeled as Myah Marie?
Listen to this version of “Hold It Against Me.” It’s JUST Myah Marie singing the background vocals.
Doesn’t Myah’s background vocals sound exactly like the actual song? It makes us wonder what part of the final track even features Britney’s actual voice?
Now listen to Myah’s solo song, “Animal.”
This is ALL Myah, but it sounds like a Britney song!
Below is a demo for the song "Black Widow," which Myah recorded for Britney. They might as well have just released it as is—it sounds just like Brit.
When the Britney Jean album dropped, Myah’s dad Murray Langston told Star magazine, “My daughter sings for Britney Spears. The truth is, Myah can sound just like her. Maybe Britney doesn’t know whose voice is on her album. Maybe she just comes in, lays down the track, leaves, and doesn’t care."
Whether she was pressured by the label to do so, or was speaking truthfully, Myah swiftly denied being the voice on Britney Jean.
“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,” Myah released in a statement, “She is a veritable ‘living legend’ with a longstanding reputation for excellence in all aspects of her artistry.”
Something about that overly gushy statement just seems phony. Considering how much Britney Spears is worth, we imagine Myah Marie gets paid a lot to keep her mouth shut and just keep singing like Britney.
But things really started to heat up when Myah recorded a parody of Britney’s song “Piece of Me,” but called it “Don’t Take My Kids from Me.”
Some of the lyrics include:
“I was miss preteen wet dream
When I was 17
I lip sang and
Pretended to sing
Got breast implants
And a wedding ring
Then I flashed all my privates they put pictures in the magazines
Don’t take the kids from me, Don’t take the kids from me”
Of course, Myah is mocking Britney’s now infamous custody battle with ex Kevin Federline when she locked herself in her bathroom and was immediately placed on a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold.
This parody song was uploaded to Youtube in 2011. Apparently Britney’s people never saw it, because they kept bringing Myah back to sing on the album.
The song was recently unearthed online, and naturally, Britney fans are outraged.
So what do you think? The facts are: Myah sounds exactly like Britney, she mocked her in a parody song, she is credited as a backing vocalist yet her vocals for “Passenger” sound an awful lot like the final product, and her dad even said she’s the one singing on the Britney Jean album.
