    This is manipulated…. anyone who does sound, etc. can hear that.
    Her "off pitch" pattern here is simply too unnatural to be real.

  2. Jose Miguel says – reply to this


    why not post the final demo as well?? it is also in youtube and it is beautiful, Britney can sing! (I tried posting it here but wasn't allowed)

  3. joseisstupid says – reply to this


    Re: Jose Miguel – haha you think that is her real voice and hasn't been altered??? The girl cannot sing.

  4. don says – reply to this


    Honestly I don't think this is that horrible….I mean we know who she is as a singer….and if this was her first take its understandable. Some singers need to warm up….this doesn't sound too off base. Now Jennifer Lopez on the other hand…..there are leaks of her without autotune and oh brother….talk about a mess!

  5. Linda says – reply to this


    Ummm this is horrible. But it honestly doesn't surprise me. We all know that she can't sing and uses autotune.

    Re: BritneyQueen90
    I'd kill to read some of your responses from when she shaved her head.

  8. @v@ says – reply to this


    Real or not, vocals for any particular song are worked on just as a ball player works on her swing. The unique and individual technique that brought her fame remains, and am pretty sure a few dozen rounds with this tune brought a more professional result. Studios employ vocal photoshop for the end product, and do so for the ears of the listener.

  9. Mike says – reply to this


    i'm over this 'quote' but in all honesty, LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE.

  10. Kate says – reply to this


    She got better as her voice warmed-up. Leave Britney alone! It was her warm-up. Go pick on another celeb…. I'm sick of her being picked on.

  11. sm87 says – reply to this


    it's honestly not even all that bad, her only bad parts are the higher pitches sounds - which she never does, as that's not her pitch range. Meh, she's no beyonce but she's still good imo

  12. You're stupid says – reply to this


    Re: BritneyQueen90 – Bitch, shut up and take off the caps lock. You're as annoying as Britney without auto tune.

  13. Elizabeth boston says – reply to this


    lol warming up please I have heard plenty of singers warm and they didn't sound like that. We all knew she couldn't sing she got rich and famous because of her looks and body!

  14. bychface says – reply to this


    Wow….. LMFAO this is awful. No scandal here though…. britney's audience figured this out years ago. I think her mental state keeps people interested to see what she does to be honest. No hate here…. I think she's a nice person who unfortunately suffers from some kind of personality/emotional disorder. its good that the awareness is out there for others through her success. At 3:00 though…LOL. poor girl.

  15. KC says – reply to this


    It's not as bad as everyone is making it out to be, and I'm sure you could do the same thing with the majority of the pop tarts out there, and get similar sounding results. Besides, it's not like anyone ever thought she was Celine Dion or Barbra Streisand.

  16. Fabian says – reply to this


    She actually sounds very good, I'm pleasantly surprised :) Surprised to see people responding negatively, this is really very good.

  17. 17

    She just cannot sing. She was manufactured to be this "pop princess" and you've been on the bandwagon for too long to get off now.

  18. Red auburn says – reply to this


    Ouch, my ears are hurting! Even in rehearsals, a good singer doesn't sing off key! Time for a good voice coach and please quit smoking, Britney, it will destroy your voice…we still love you and you are still a good performer!

  19. Caius says – reply to this


    Soooooo….. Wheres the scandal?

  20. Annie says – reply to this


    That's just proof that she can't sing. She's always lip sinced and had her voice "fixed" on her songs. She's a good entertainer but not a good singer. She should find another hobby she's much better at.

  21. me says – reply to this


    heres the real version

    be fair and share it.

  22. Rosie says – reply to this


    People saying Britney can't sing… What the hell? First of all, if you've done any singing ever you can tell that she hadn't warmed up here. It's obvious. Second of all, she started in singing competetions and how do you not remember The Mickey Mouse Club?!

  23. Tammie says – reply to this


    i love britney! we all know that she cant sing good on live but whateves she's more of an entertainer than a singer. Its been years since we've learnt about her autotune mishap so no surprise here

  24. Leigh says – reply to this


    You do know this is fake, right?

  25. Adam Dixon says – reply to this


    I am a musician and it sounds like someone practicing. Now what she needs to do is show what she's really made of.


  26. maor says – reply to this


    britney lost it along time ago and she needs to retire

  27. overglobe says – reply to this


    Somebody altered her voice with auto tune to make it sound off… Seems pretty hateful to me. You gotta have something to begin with to get something more with electronics later. And she's got it. I've worked with vocalists all my life and I'd be more than ecstatic to have Britney grace my studio with her voice.

  28. Melissa Mulchansingh says – reply to this


    Her chain smoking has ruined her voice completely!

  29. Mike UK says – reply to this


    Yes, it's terrible, but so is the polished product.

  30. Nina says – reply to this


    I don't think it is horrible I actually like it better than auto tuned songs I like her voice talking or singing.

  31. shawn jacob says – reply to this


    Sounds ok to me !!!!!!!!!!!! I agree with what said in the statement ….. give her a break!!!!

  32. Pamela Giovanni says – reply to this


    Re: Jackie – This was not a 'warm up'. I believe this is an altered track. I think it is a publicity stunt to see peoples reactions. Obviously us commenting on it is drawing attention to a NEW ALBUM. People will buy the album just to see if it was an erroneous 'warm up'. As I say this is NOT a warm up but simply a PUBLICITY STUNT

  33. Adele says – reply to this


    Re: BritneyQueen90

    Wow, fanatic, is the word. Didn't know you were with Britney in the studio. It's not surprising this is what she sounds like without help. Just because she was a child star doesn't make her a natural at singing. Celine Dion is a singer, Britney is a popstar. Get over it

  34. Jay says – reply to this


    Re: BritneyQueen90 – No you'd get a note or 2 out of tune the "First take" not the entire song. Whether this is real or not its not an opinion that she can't sing its a fact and the only people who argue with that are the butthurt fans whose denial is as blatant as her lack of talent

  35. Heather says – reply to this


    Meh-I've heard worse. Pretty much everyone these days relies on auto tune. Plus, we don't know if she was ill or something that day either, these Celebrities are married to their work…"in sickness and in health…" And really, if you expect Britney Spears to be a "singer" you need to scale back, she's an entertainer, not a singer, much like many other pop stars.

  36. Von says – reply to this


    I'm not shocked at all because even with auto tune we know she, along with other's really can't sing. Today, we have nothing but packaged singers. I'd most definitely buy the instrumental.

  37. Bri says – reply to this


    SO MANY RECORDINGS WHEN SHE WAS A KID. WHEN will people ever learn to lay off of her? you'll make her Everytime music video a reality

  38. Anonymous says – reply to this


    I think it's her real voice now. The past years were REAL. But with alcohol and the drugs she all did, she might have damage her voice. Why does she NEVER sing live? Well, only on maybe one song during the whole concert for a song where she doesn't have to sing high notes but on the other hand, she never sing live since she left rehab a few years ago

  39. Jugster says – reply to this


    It's clearly not a warm-up because she'd be trying and retrying notes. It's an entire song before her voice is cleaned up. Most of it isn't bad, but there are a lot of off-notes showing that she isn't anything better than a pub singer. As a product though, she still has plenty to give and make record sales.

  40. busha says – reply to this


    this bitch sucks ass

  41. andrew says – reply to this


    great marketing.

  42. d says – reply to this


    Holy crap.. go listen to the actual release of this song. You can hear her crap voice right through the autotune. This is no warm up. but the starrrrsssssssss

  43. fmk says – reply to this


    there are people who hate her and people who love her, so haters can say everything they want as lovers que love her so much they want…. she will always be amazing for me for the meaning she has in my life, and that is growing up with her music, and for me all her songs are amazing… she can sing, if she couldnt sing, she really doesn't have the need to keep doing music… but she is a legend and the gossip will keep going, and the imbecile of will i am will keep doing his shit and so, but britney will always be britney and Britney Jean as well as every Britney album is amazing….

    and for this leaked version, everyone who sees it knows will i am's answear was the wrong one, who gives a statement like that? so screw him….. and i agree with the comment of De, this leaked version is manipulated and will i am is just stupid

  44. 44

    lets just put it this way. every singer, especially when singing a song for the first time, is going to be pitchy. they go back and listen to the recording and fix where they are flat/sharp and sound horrible. how do we know this wasnt one of those times? as a kid who has done musical theatre, i can tell you that one song can take several tries before its perfect. this is no different. Britney was making albums before autotune was a thing and i think people like to forget that. give her some credit, besides its not like that was the final version.

  45. OnlyMe says – reply to this


    The non-crazy fans and the rest of the world knows she lip-syncs her shows and all so it's not really surprising to me. Maybe when she was a teenager her singing was realer than it is now but she probably lost her voice due to maturing and stuff

  46. Fama says – reply to this


    This is why the only popstar I appreciate is Lady Gaga.

  47. PPIP says – reply to this


    I've heard hundreds of "warm up's" in studio and live. None of them has been this bad. Autotune killed the real talents.

  48. Daniel says – reply to this


    Re: De – agreed. and for warm ups, yes you can hear some weird shit, but it wouldnt be a mono-toned and dull or anything like this. it sounds like it has been manipulated fo sho.

    I am a man and I can perform a Britney concert as good as she can! I believe this "real" voice is why she lip syncs at all the concerts I have been to as well and my daughter.

  51. yes, she can't sing says – reply to this


    Britney can't sing.. Everyone know's that… The only reason people like her at all, is because of her looks.. If she didn't have that… no one would be paying attention to her.
    Waiting for her next mental break down..LOL

  52. britney Fan says – reply to this


    No matter what sounds like i will always be a Britney fan and still think she is number 1

  53. florida gold says – reply to this


    Re: Dan S. – I agree with 100%
    She can't sing and was never a true singer like the greats.

  54. kayla says – reply to this


    This is CRAP! I've been a Britney spears fan since age 4. This is fabricated, and someone made her voice sound this way. I think people are nothing but pathetic! Britney is an amazing singer, and this sound is a bunch of crap! Get a life people!

  55. kayla says – reply to this


    everyone knows anything this pathetic website right her Perez Hilton post..is a bunch of bull shit. Britney has a beautiful voice in real life, and doesn't require to sing with an auto tuner to sound good. She's been singing since she was real young winning LOTS of competitions. So to those who think they know her, and say she sucks…look at the website…everything they post is bull crap!

  56. Jon says – reply to this


    I don't know why any of you are surprised. Her voice on albums is quite obviously autotuned because she sounds like a robot and she never, ever sings live. Ever. I am surprised this hasn't come to light sooner. The thing is about Britney is she gets away with it while other genuinely talented singers never even get their demo heard. She is a fraud.

  57. So what! says – reply to this


    This is what 50% of all musicians now a days sound like before being edited. She dosen't have a good singing voice. Hence why her music is all synthesized on the final cut. Who really cares any. If you like her howling, then good for you.

  58. kayla says – reply to this


    here's a link of her singing LIVE! Now, tell me she can't sing now.

  59. SexyLittleThing says – reply to this


    Whether it's early in the process or not, it's obviously a take.

    I think any singer knows that she clearly has a pitch problem, like MANY people (even professionals). If someone at her level didn't have pitch issues, they would likely need to consciously sustain the problem for a whole song. She obviously wasn't just screwing around and the vocal pattern was too naturally, consistently off-pitch.

    At the same time, do I give a damn what her voice is really like if the final version kills it? Nah…I'm not looking for the MET here. I want to dance my drunkin heart out at the club then then forget it 5 minutes later or use it as background music and maybe never hear anything but the beat. Problem solved.

  60. micus says – reply to this


    I'm a musician and recording artist and I can tell you that this track has been altered. The really off notes were auto tuned to sound like that. Britney can sing and all you people dissing her ability can't.

  61. 61

    Wow, I'm shocked; always knew she didn't have a strong voice, but didn't realize she had such a pitch problem. Even children are able to sing a song and stay on pitch.

  62. Amy says – reply to this


    My friend is a singer, her voice is amazing, she refuses to go on XFactor or any of that bollocks because it's all manufactured nonsense. My friend warms up separately to laying down a track and as soon as she opens her mouth on the mic she is pitch and note perfect. A professional singer NEVER sounds like this.

  63. jen says – reply to this



  64. Jess says – reply to this


    Here's my take. I'm a recording artist so I've spent lots of time at the studio. Yes she can sing, but it sounds like she was recording while she was ON auto tune. Plenty of singers do this. But when you do it, you underestimate where your vocals should lay. She's completely flat. Granted Williams comment makes sense, I just don't buy it. I've always loved Brittany but she needs to stop altering her voice and SING like we all know she can.

  65. NorkTheDork says – reply to this


    "Warming up is essential if you’re a pro, as it is with a runner doing stretches, and it takes a while to do properly. I’ve heard all manner of sounds emitted during warmups. The point is that it is not supposed to be shared with millions of listeners." Yeah. I guess Freddy Mercury sounded like an ass-raped mule before "Warming up"

  66. Leebus says – reply to this


    It sucky. Most of the auto tuned bimbos these days sound like this I'm sure. Thanks to the magic of the sound guys, music is what it is today. True talent replaced by no talent.

  67. Suzloub says – reply to this


    Has good defence argument and show of loyalty from William but you warm up with scales, humming and vibrating lips not by singing off key. You don't sing to warm up!

  68. Rachel says – reply to this


    It's a scratch track. It's bad, but I don't think it's horrific. For all we know, it was her first attempt to lay the track down that day. Maybe she is "searching" at times because the material is very new at the time this was recorded. Giving her the benefit of the doubt.

  69. Sasha says – reply to this


    Oh my Dear God!!
    It's horrible… im sorry, but the person who thinks she can sing is delusional. Wow…

  70. Sasha says – reply to this


    Warming up my ass!!! She is awfull!!

  71. dave says – reply to this


    It was tough to listen to as she found her way around the song but it was also clear she was not putting her full voice into the lyrics. Sung like she was doing it was boring to listen to but I have an idea of what the song is like and look forward to hearing the finished recorded song in a few months.

  72. Tess says – reply to this


    Dear William "the asshole" Orbit, no one believes you, she cannot sing and her voice has been altered since day one.

  73. Oscar says – reply to this


    First of all, I think for years we have all known that Christina can sing better the most female singers and yes that would include my beloved Madonna. But let's get real it has not been Brit's singing that has made her a very wealthy, yes I said very WEALTHY, woman. She, as like Madonna, are entertainers and if you expected more then that then you are the fool.

  74. Lola B says – reply to this


    There is a reason why her entire Vegas show is lipsynched…she cannot sing or hold a tune. Good for her!! She's made millions of $$$ for being a singer who can't sing. Sign me up. I can't sing either.

  75. DK says – reply to this


    Such BS. Give up! You can't ruin Britney! Girl is a legend. Keep trying y'all.

  76. Saul says – reply to this


    William Orbit was involved in the leaking of the song. I hate the album and will.i.am for making it bad. Britney Spears is the queen of Pop and fans will always stay by her side.

  77. vernon nielsen says – reply to this


    Miguel its not manipulated and the producer is right , scratch tracks are commonly called scratch tracks for a reason , to prepare the mix for a good vocal session, during the scratch take the vocalist may not have levels right and they might override their headvoice causing pitch issues. This scratch track was probably released by someone who was intent on payin her back for some stupid offense.

  78. Jeremy says – reply to this


    For what it's worth, I've toyed with auto tune. You really have to stretch a lot with your voice so it will come out right. You have to be flat, off pitch and draw it out slightly off tempo for auto tune to do its thing the right way. I'm not a Britney fan, just saw this was interesting topic.

  79. kaya says – reply to this


    What is the big deal about it? As if she's the only one…90% of pop stars sound different in reality than on albums..u want to listen to great voice try Andrea Bocelli or Celine Dion next time…

  80. nameofthefrog says – reply to this


    Sounds like a woman… Sopunds good.. Would be worth to get that record… but .. its just a leak.. hm what a autobor life

  82. Lizzy says – reply to this


    And why is this newsworthy? Her PR team is filled with idiots-use the excuse b spears used to use "I consider myself an entertainer not just a singer" and everyone will go jack go gjrjrs daily lives

  83. @@@ says – reply to this


    Sure you could do this with other singers, but other singers aren't held to a high standard as Britney. She's never been a strong singer, but she's never been that great of a musician. Her songs, albeit catchy, were mostly generic & overproduced. Britney has gotten away with a lot of stuff that other artists would get creamed for doing the same thing because of her mental illness, and because "she's been through a lot." Well, who the hell hasn't been through a lot? Her sufferings weren't any worse than anyone elses. But after so many "comebacks" where she failed to deliver, I think people are finally getting tired of forgiving her and making excuses for her being such a half-assed performer. And I used to be a fan.

  84. Michelle Herrera says – reply to this


    Wow, what a fraud. A REAL, natural singer would not sound this awful. I used to think she was a pretty good singer but now I know the truth.

  85. Christy says – reply to this


    Apparently her back up singer is Auto tuned as well because he sounds worse. I really expected to here something amazingly bad. It's not good however it isn't the worst thing I've ever heard. I sounds like what he said a warm up vocal. She didn't sound like she was trying to sing well. Oh well people alwyys gotta be making something out of nothing.

  86. Jay says – reply to this


    Rubbish. If Britney was so talented like William tries to make out, then she wouldn't need auto tune!

  87. James says – reply to this


    How can this video be fake if her producer wrote about how this was just a 'warm up.' He clearly would have told everyone that it was a fake if it was. He wouldn't tell people it was just a warm up when it was a fake.

  88. Michelle says – reply to this


    As someone who manages careers of two band and has been in the studio for endless hours, everyone knows Brittney has vocal directors, she cannot sing on pitch and this is not a warm up. Vocalizing warm ups are ascending and descending scales, then the voice is warmed up and the artist does a run through before taping. Britney's ppl def use autotune, she def lip synchs and/or sings to her own vocal backing track. Have her sing acapella. She's no Aguilera or Mariah…never
    Was or will be. She's manufactured in the studio and is a performer. Done deal.

  89. Aaron Snelling says – reply to this


    There's really nothing defensible about this. If this is the real track and it hasn't been tampered with (I won't rule out this possibility even though it seems like the executive would have brought it up in his letter) it is simply too bad for an excuse. Yes, people need to warm up sometimes, and I understand she sang well in the past. But even doing one go around this horribly shows that she really doesn't have much talent as a singer.

  90. Dick Head says – reply to this


    Re: Mike – Better she leaves the world alone…

  91. Korpze says – reply to this


    Sorry but Flat is Flat and there's no excuse. Warming up just doesn't cut it. I know plenty of singers that can nail a tune first time, As for whether she sings without auto tune, How can you tell? Autotune can be set so you don't know it's on. It doesn't have to have that awful robotic warbling, which incidentally shows you are off pitch every time it cuts in.

  92. gabi says – reply to this


    Um….why is everyone so surprised? Real or fake….shes never had a good voice! A step up from kesha maybe….at best.

  93. Stugots says – reply to this


    This is absolutely what I expected. I work as a producer and there's no doubt that this is an unfettered take - she's singing au-natural here and she's horrible! No wonder she lip-synchs her 'live' shows…

  94. Raymond R. says – reply to this


    for a warm up this was actually not that bad. Sure it sounds different from the final version on the album but after a few warm ups she obviously nailed it !!! love ya godney xoxoxo

  95. Mike says – reply to this


    It's not bad at all….listen to any of your favorite singers without all the sauce they pour on in the studio and you would be sick….sure it had its really bad moments but overall it was par for any course.

  96. Jose Miguel says – reply to this


    Re: joseisstupid – lol - you know who can sing? your mum, just nailed her good, sorry about the low tip, I didn't have enough change for her

  97. carolann watkins says – reply to this


    genuinly dont think its that bad ive heard worse its not as bad as everyone is making it out to be :p

  98. Jim Smith says – reply to this


    If this was manipulated to sound bad the producers would have mentioned that. Sorry Brit lovers, this is for real. 11:50 PM Thursday night karaoke level talent is about the best you are going to get without electronics and a lot of studio post-processing.

    Don't take it too hard, very few of today's artists can really sing well without electronic help. On a positive note, that means any one of us could be a pop star.

  99. Franks and Beans says – reply to this


    Warm-ups required my ass. How many times have we seen auditions for The Voice, Amircan Idol, etc where they are outside with everyone else standing quietly (read: not warming up with Rice Crispies…snap crakle pop) and then they walk in,start singing, and NAIL it.

    Britney is cute, yes. Talented with her mouth? Most likely but I don't think she sung her way to the top.
