    Default How much of "Work Bitch" does Britney sing?

    This is inspired by an old thread I found by JC called "How much Myah is there on Britney Jean?" The thread doesn't really talk about Work Bitch though, and I'm curious as to how much of Britney is on it. While I was trying to "decipher" Work Bitch myself, I found the lead vocals in the stems are different from the ones used in the final mix.
    Britney = green, Myah = red, Britney (L) and Myah (R) = yellow, and unknown = black.

    [Intro] - can't tell if this is Britney or Myah low-pitched.
    You wanna, you wanna

    [Chorus]
    You want a hot body? You want a Bugatti?
    You want a Maserati? You better work bitch
    You want a Lamborghini? Sippin' martinis?
    Look hot in a bikini? You better work bitch
    You wanna live fancy? Live in a big mansion?
    Party in France?
    You better work bitch, you better work bitch
    You better work bitch, you better work bitch
    Now get to work bitch!
    Now get to work bitch!

    [Verse 1]
    Bring it on, ring the alarm
    Don't stop now, just be the champion
    Work it hard, like it's your profession
    Watch out now, cause here it comes
    Here comes the smasher, here comes the master
    Here comes the big beat, big beat disaster
    No time to quit now, just time to get it now
    Pick up what I'm putting down
    Pick up what I'm putting down

    [Chorus]
    You want a hot body? You want a Bugatti?
    You want a Maserati? You better work bitch
    You want a Lamborghini? Sippin' martinis?
    Look hot in a bikini? You better work bitch
    You wanna live fancy? Live in a big mansion?
    Party in France?
    You better work bitch, you better work bitch
    You better work bitch, you better work bitch
    Now get to work bitch!
    Now get to work bitch!

    [Verse 2]
    Break it off, break it down
    See me come and you can hear my sound
    Tell somebody in your town
    Spread the word, spread the word
    Go call the police, go call the governor
    I bring the treble, don't mean to trouble ya'
    I make the governor, call me the governor
    I am the bad bitch, the bitch that you'll never know

    [Bridge]
    Hold your head high, fingers to the sky
    They gonna try to try ya', but they can't deny ya'
    Keep it moving higher, and higher
    Keep it building higher, and higher
    So hold your head high, fingers to the sky
    Now they don't believe ya', but they gonna meet ya'
    Keep it moving higher and higher
    Keep it moving higher and higher and higher


    [Outro]
    Work, work, work, work
    Work, work, work, work
    Work, work, work, work
    Work, work, work

    Work it out, work it out, work it out, work it out
    Work it out, work it out, work it out, work it out
    Work it out, work it out, work it out, work it out
    Work it out, work it out

    You better work bitch
    You better work bitch

    I don't think Work Bitch falls strictly in the same problem other BJ tracks do.
    She is indeed the backvocal for the song, we all know that and she was credited for it.

    The complaints about the album were that some of Myah's vocals were used as LEAD and in some of them she was not credited at all, even as backvocal.

    I think the Vegas mix is all Britney, I could be wrong, though.

    There is still quite a bit of Myah in the vegas version, however Brit's prerecorded vocals drown out the original studio vocals (containing Myah) as they're layered on top of each other to make it seem like she's singing over the track.

    I remember hearing it first and thinking it sounded nothing like Britney
