Want To Hear Brit Brit's Hold It Against Me Without Auto-Tune?!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBritney Spears

Britney Spears has never been known best for abilities as a singer, but it's easy to forget that although the pop star's range may not be as powerful as some of her peers, she actually has a LOVELY voice, which you can hear for yourself in the just-released, auto-tune free version of her debut single from Femme Fatale, Hold It Against Me!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

Nice, gurl! It's amazing how different the vocals are without any processing!

It really makes the tone of the track entirely different!

We know that a lot of the material on the latest album was supposed to sound overly distorted for aesthetic purposes, but if this is how she still sounds clean, then we hope on her next project she really shows off her voice again!

Well done, gurl!

What do U think?? Which version of Hold It Against Me do U like better?

    Sounds SO MUCH better

  2. 2


  3. 3

    She is one of the worst singers around. She should give all her money to her P.R. people, they earned it. This song is still electronically enhanced. She is horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. 4

    This verison is 50 million times better!!!! Auto Tune has gotten very old and tired. I always seem to think that talentless people use Auto Tune….like the Black Eye Peas…I am not hip to their shit….it is way to Auto Tuned it gets really annoying.

  5. 5

    You go gurl. That was something else.

  6. 6

    Princess of Pop…She's great

  7. 7

    Oh perez, i know she can pull it off coz she sang everytime without autotune.

  8. 8

    She's amazing..she just needs a little more time to really get back to herself..

  9. 9

    Princess of Pop..She's been in the game for 13 years

  10. 10

    She's madonna protege btw.

  11. 11

    I knew it coz she sang everytime without autotune and it was one of the best songs of hers all time…

  12. 12

    i highly doubt this is her without auto-tune.

  13. 13

    She's the best.she's one of the most amazing singers ever.!!!so stfu haters!!

  14. 14

    She sounds good! Wonder why they always auto tune the heck out of her?

  15. 15

    SO MUCH BETTER. Even though I think this still has autotune. It's just used minimally

  16. 16

    Uh, NO. This still has auto-tune… I am a music producer… All they did was remove the backup vocals and remove some echo and reverb from the vocals. However, there is DEFINITELY still auto-tune on her vocals here.

    I THINK I was expecting something a lot worse. Its not that bad actually.

  18. 18

    no auto-tune? i doubt it……….not nasally enough………

  19. 19

    I like both versions!!!!! Fullstop!!

  20. 20

    Re: mickyds – lolz!!try to sing dear and we'll see who is a sucker!!

  21. 21

    Re: LizardKinG – U must be waiting all 24 hours in front of your computer to bash about Britney!! I bet U must be so obssed with her!!

  22. 22

    She may not be auto tuned, but she still sounds auto corrected. No way her pitch is that perfect.

  23. 23

    Re: NadiaMend – Why are u so jealous of her??

  24. 24

    I LOVE IT!!! I hope Britney decides to do a clean track like this one sometime soon. AND perform it live. :)

  25. 25

    I like it, Brit sounds pretty damn good:)

  26. 26

    10 seconds of that shit and I was looking for something to cut myself with………..

  27. 27

    I hate to be the bad guy, but I have to call bullshit on this one. Heavy auto tune was left out but you can CLEARLY hear when the sound mixer had smoothed out her levels. I have never heard Britney sing unplugged, so I can't say whether she actually does have a voice or not - but don't be fooled, just because it doesnt sound like tin-can auto tune, doesn't mean there wasn't sound engineer interference. And even still, its just decent at best. Poor girl.

  28. 28

    Methinks someone in this thread is either obsessed or Britney herself. Ppfftt.

  29. Went says – reply to this


    You can still here that he pitch is biong fixed in this version.

  30. 30

    this definately still has some autotune, but it sounds a lot better than the single version

  31. Mr K says – reply to this


    She sounds great!! Why does she keep allowing producers to Robo her voice?

  32. 32

    Singing? She's basically talking the song not singing it.

  33. 33

    even if this doesn't have auto tune (which i doubt) it doesn't mean that her voice hasn't been enhanced at all. either way, she's still a terrible singer.

  34. 34

    It makes me so happy to hear this. I wish the whole album were this clear. It proves that she can actually sing and she sounds great! Especially the chorus. I like it so much better. GO GO BRIT!

  35. 35

    Lavlavlav it :) she sounds the same, only better!

  36. 36

    I love how you put this bullshit up, but Evanescence is previewing their new album and you cover NOTHING. Why don't you pay attention to real talent as opposed to this media puppet? It'll be nice when you cover real musicians.

  37. 37

    I've been a fan of Britney since I was 5 years old..She's the legendary Miss britneySpears

  38. 38

    first off, I am not a hater… I thing good for Britney that she is able to make all this money.. that being said, I still dont understand why.. she can't sing, she can't play an instrument, she does not write her music and can barely dance.. but, for some reason, people buy her music.. for that, she is pure genius!!

  39. 39

    This is NOT Britney. It's Myah Marie. And everyone in the 'know' knows it.

  40. 40

    theres still work done to her voice here. the just took out the backup vocals and that damn echo effect that all the FF songs have.
    but i will admit, i'll take this brit over the robot anyday.

  41. 41

    are we supposed this song is still not electronically enhanced? lmao!

  42. 42

    sorry, she canNOT sing.

  43. 43

    Wow. Cant believe people are so easily fooled!! Its still not her voice idiots!! If it was then the lazy britney spears should sing live. Yikes, scary that this is what music comes too.

  44. 44

    This is so much better!!!!!!

  45. Merab says – reply to this


    As people already said , it is STILL "processed" ..They took away some "heavy" effects to just fool people, but it is not real real Live recording. There are still a lot mixering there…I don´t think Brit has problem with a pitch ( like some suggest)…no…it´s just the tone and quality of her voice…it always needs adjustment cause it doesn´t sound good without "processing"

  46. 46

    Re: Dance_FloorGirl – There's no flies on you are there.

  47. 47

    they just released this fake crap to make people believe that's how she's going to sing in her tour… we can never, ever believe in these people.

  48. 48

    There is still some autotune there, I can tell…

  49. 49

    Re: rickraton – Fingers crossed u succeeded!!!! Lmao

  50. Alien says – reply to this


    This is what it SHOULD sound like. Auto tune is ruining music. I might even start listening to her if she would stop using it. She has a great voice and she should own it. Be proud of your voice girl, dont hide behind technology.

  51. 51

    Re: LizardKinG – So Perez made you cum again today?! How many times a day do you jack it and shoot loads while looking at pics of Perez's new bod?! 5? 10? Lmfao!!

  52. 52

    Re: Dance_FloorGirl – I know!! 13 years baby!!!!

  53. 53

    Re: Tash20 – Wah Wah Wah

  54. 54

    even though there's still some auto correction and all that, i still think it sounds pretty good. for sure better than the other version, less like a robot is singing.

  55. 55

    This is the main vocal mix. It's been available for three months.
    Where is Perez getting his news from?
    This was done by a fan.
    Shame shame.

  56. 56

    This was not Britney without auto-tune. Simply stated, have her sing LIVE and without any assistance and then maybe I will let her continue to sing in her own shower when no one is around. Maybe!

  57. 57

    Like them both. Great song.

  58. cuete says – reply to this


    that is still auto tune dear!

  59. 59

    Re: AleximaRe: Nannyb – Excuss me bitches britney does sing live during her tour and she sounds fucking great!! Live with it!

  60. 60

    Re: Alexima – Stay positive, Alexima!! Lmfao!!

  61. 61

    I love ms. spears… she has never been known for her vocals… but her performances. she is an entertainer, and will be for a LONG time. LOVE HER!

  62. 62

    Re: wifey. – gaga's wifey??lmao

  63. 63

    simply amazing! i wish she'd show this voice off more

  64. 64

    Re: Nannyb – Well, u should accept the fact that she has accomplished a lot in her career

  65. 65

    Why did she need autotune in the 1st please??? SHE SOUNDS PERFECTLY FINE!!! ugh stupid producers

  66. 66


  67. 67

    I just feel sorry for her if this is still autotuned a bit according to some of the comments, if she is really terrible than she probably thinks this is her real voice, and in a few years when her career in singing is over (Unless she gets her face stuffed with plastic) she'll realise what a lie most of her life was…

  68. 68

    I'm sick of autotune too. You can say what you want about it still being enhanced or whatever, but it SOUNDS a lot less processed. I like it.

  69. 69

    On the other hand if this really is her real voice she'll probably think to herself where the money went…

  70. 70

    There are PLENTY of effects/ corrections on that track? Who the fuck are you/ they trying to kid? Even an untrained ear hear it… jeez.

  71. 71

    The natural voice is WAY BETTER! I wish i had this one on my iphone.

  72. dp79 says – reply to this


    They shut off the auto-tune effects, but it's still being auto tuned and corrected. Drives me nuts every time auto-tune is used. Nothing against the singers, but it's like nails on a chalk board to me.

  73. 73

    Without auto-tune??? I think you mean, auto-tuned differently to play to gullible morons like you. Bitch can't sing, can't dance, useless puppet.

  74. 74

    I like it 100 times better. Go on girl

  75. 75

    Re: Nannyb – Lmao!! You comment like a poor person. Get a motherfucking job, twat cleaner!!

  76. 76

    OMG from minute 3:18 on i've fucken fallen in love with miss Britney Spears all over again!!!!! ahhhh i adore this she should rerelease this song just like this i wouldn't be shocked if it got some major play time on the radio agan

  77. 77

    I don't think most of you people know what auto-tune is.

  78. 78

    i love it! No autotune next time Britney! Its really ok!

  79. 79

    Why would she ever use auto tune when she sounds like this??? That's why I don't listen to crap like Gaga or most of the songs now…everything is just fake…you don't need any talent anymore.

  80. 80

    Re: Unbelievable! – Why u so cwanky, goober?! Go suck down some cock loads and you'll feel better!! LolZ!!

  81. 81

    Now let's hear Christina without it…oh that's right she doesn't need it! Madonna, Kylie, Janet and other dance pop artists might not be technically gifted vocalists like Whitney or Christina or Mariah but they all sing circles around and sound 1000x better than Brit, and they can actually sing live!

  82. 82

    Omg…are you stupid? That's STILL not 100% her voice. Have you ever actually heard her sing herself? She did it a few times when she first came out, but she honestly can't sing. Even on the MMC her voice wasn't the greatest. The girl can't sing.

  83. 83

    lol this is so old perez, ure ass is slow these days, anyways it sounds AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAZIIIIIIINNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

  84. 84

    WOW I actually like this version better than the auto tune. Her voice sounds very sweet and innocent, Great Job Britney, u prove to the world that you are still as talented as ever.

  85. 85

    This is why Perez should never judge a music show. There is autotune and vocal production on this track. At best, Britney sings like an average 16 year old girl with a very average tone and zero chops. Let's be honest please. It's insulting to people who actually have skill. Not hating on Britney though - she doesn't claim to be a great singer and she earned fame as an fun entertainer, not as an exceptional singer, much the way Madonna did. But please leave the music compliments to people who are deserving and set your standards a bit higher than 'almost competent'. You shouldn't have to praise a star performer for almost being able to sing their own song in tune, 12 or so years into their professional career.

  86. 86

    Re: Vermillion Lynn

    Evanescence is real talent? Lol.

  87. 87

    just because it doesn't have autotune doesn't mean it hasn't been fixed up in the studio. I'm not so sure that's what she sounds like without any tweaking…

  88. 88

    Re: MMSEllen – Could you make your comments LONGER?!?! Lmao!! You clearly need to get fucked asap!! Lol!!

  89. 89

    what? some of you who says that have never heard Brit to sing unplugged, please listen to "Let Go", she wrote this song to Blackout, but it didnt make the cut. you can clearly hear Brit turning the page… no auto-tune! youtube… /watch?v=Rdd4dlss7TA

  90. 90

    auto-tune free, my ass!! its just not as over-produced as the final track.

  91. 91

    she's pretty bad. TOTALLY out of tune… I know people who do better in Karaoke Wednesdays

  92. 92

    All smoke and mirrors, the entertainment machine could make anyone a star and in the end it's only possible because most people in America are gullible sycophants that have no self respect.

  93. 93

    Hate her if you want to..this bitch still makes more $$ then any of you, AND she's been going for 13…not easy in a pop world..

  94. 94

    Why does she sound like she has a stuffed up nose all of the time!? Seriously, if she would stop smoking ciggarettes she woudln't be half bad. I especially liked the last chorus where she switched up her singing, it actually sounded really good. Now there should be no excuse for her to be lip-synching in concert.

  95. 95

    Re: sheree13 – People like you annoy me. She doesn't write? She co wrote most of In The Zone album, and she's written songs on other albums too. Her tours are more entertaining than others like Katy or Rihanna and her dancing is still better than 99% of other performers right now. Ignorant people like you annoy me.

  96. 96

    Re: jp1988 – Oh you must not of heard, Brit DOES sing live on the FF tour. Plus, voice really doesn't matter in the music world today, Xtina is a has been while Britney keeps throwing out hit songs and #1 albums.

  97. 97

    Re: Alexandre26 – Well then you better get those people you 'know' over to Jive records pronto!! Ya fucking lame cum collector!! Lmao!! Karaoke?!?! LMFAO!! You might as well change your profile name to 'ISuckedMyDaddy'sDickAndAllIGotWasThisLousyTShirt'!!

  98. 98

    Lovely voice?!?!? Are you serious?? Her voice is awful! Always has been…. still can't figure out why she ever made it in the first place.

  99. 99

    My girl sounds great! She really doesn't need the auto-tune like everyone thinks. Amazing! Can't wait for this Friday! Britney/Nola!!!!!

  100. 100

    Wow.. it actually sounds better without auto.. fuck you guys saying it sucks.. her voice is not even bad.. people like that that look for the bad in anything even when there is none are pathetic.. doesn't matter anyway.. i think it's so much better without..she has a lovely voice range or not ;D
