Are We Really All That Surprised That Britney Can’t Sing? (AUDIO)

1

An audio of Britney Spears singing without auto-tune has been leaked, and she can be heard singing ‘Alien’, her song from 2013 album ‘Britney Jean’. Her vocal skills are anything but good. Not even decent. She appears to struggle very much to hit higher notes and manipulate her voice into a melody.

However, William Orbit, who made Alien, took to his Facebook.com page to post a long defense of the 32-year old pop star. He said that the singer’s vocal was only a “warm-up” and not a final “take”.

I’d like to affirm that ANY singer when first at the mic at the start of a long session can make a multitude of vocalisations in order to get warmed up,” he wrote.

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 warm-ups. The point is that it is not supposed to be shared with millions of listeners.

A generous singer will put something down the mic to help the engineer get their systems warmed up and at the right level, maybe whilst having a cup of herb tea and checking through lyrics before the session really kicks off. It’s not expected to be a ‘take’.

Whomever put this on the internet must have done so in a spirit of unkindness, but it can in no way detract from the fact that Britney is and always will be beyond stellar! She is magnificent!

The singer has yet to comment on the leak.
