Dunno how accurate this is (haven't watched the whole thing yet) but I at least hear that G#2 in backing vocals.

Yes, I'm not good at pitching fry but I've added them
Now, get rid of ''background vocals''. Whistle You don't need to put always smth like ''background vocals, scream'' after a note. That's why we use colours.

Just because her low range extends down to the second Octave, doesn't mean you have start from E3. F#3/G3 would be a better note to start on.

What do you guys think about her F#6 in Toy Soldier?



at 2:46

I'm not sure about if it's a natural note by her, or it's a processed note, that it's not deserved to be counted

There's an F♯3 in Outta This World at about 1:01


Some really good F♯3s in Perfect Lover at about 0:49 and at 1:58 (background vocals)


E3, F♯3 and G♯3 (background vocals) in Why Should I Be Sad? at 0:01

Britney always gives me the impression of a passable singer whose extensive vocal training has extended her range without making her usual range any more exciting (I have to honest & admit that I do not care for females hitting notes halfway down the bass clef, which to my ear sounds ugly). I would rather Britney cut out the fancy stuff and concentrated on developing her "true" voice.

How on earth do you know whether its her or some other female doing that G2? Afaik she's got multiple backers to create that sound on her studio material.

I would assume backing vocals are performed by other singers. This is pretty standard for most recordings: no reason to tire out the lead singers voice by making her multitrack all her own background vocals!

If you listen to an acapella version of Baby One More Time with the harmonies you can hear Britney belting up to a G5

yes, there are some really high harmonies by her in a few songs (in modern times too), about modern times, it's very blurred and knowing the kind of music she does she could be enhanced with effects. She actually sings always with autotune (modern dance pop music is recorded like that, despite apparently they sound clean, there's no need to sing like T-Pain)
