Legal Information Regarding a 'Britney Jean' Lawsuit Against RCA

Recommended Posts

I never wanted to believe the Britney Jean album was dubbed by Myah Marie. That said, six years later, the allegations persist, and there is some audio evidence that Myah Marie did dub certain parts (such as the chorus of Brightest Morning Star—I've listened to Myah's raw takes as well as Britney's—the "take me home" part of Alien and the "Not alone" hook of Alien). Note: ad-libs like those heard at the end of Tik Tik Boom don't actually qualify as dubbing.

This video resumes all of the allegations:

Years ago, after gathering evidence, a Michael Jackson fan brought a lawsuit against Sony Music over three songs alleged to have been dubbed by vocalist Jason Malachi on a posthumous release called Michael. Sony, however, managed to win twice: https://www.mjvibe.com/sony-wins-fake-michael-jackson-recording-claims-for-second-time/

The case is still ongoing, though:

This takes us to Britney Jean, an RCA (Sony Music) release. I've spoken to a lawyer, and here's how it goes. If the allegations are true, fraud was indeed committed by a number of participants (Anthony Preston, will.i.am, William Orbit, Julian Prindle, David Guetta and so on + Myah Marie, Britney Spears and RCA executives). In order to initiate legal action...

1. We'd need a forensic analysis of the lead vocals of the Britney Jean album. Such an analysis could cost  around $400 per hour, and it would likely take a few days at least. The analyst would need to (if not already familiar) take some time to get familiar w/ Britney Spears' recording voice, and then do the same thing w/ Myah Marie's by listening to her own solo material. Would any of you be interested in crowdfunding the analysis?

2. We'd need a plaintiff, preferably someone living in the United States who purchased a copy of Britney Jean (hence gave RCA money) believing Britney Spears was indeed the lead vocalist of all songs.

3. We'd need witnesses, credible witnesses. Lawyers don't like conspiracy theories, and they'd need credible witnesses as in individuals close to the situation who may have seen or heard something and have a serious reason to believe dubbing indeed occurred on that record.

4. We'd need to explain why would RCA commit such fraud knowing the risk, the liability that it is, esp. after the Milli Vanilli scandal and since Myah Marie's own father, Murray Langston,  claimed his daughter was dubbing Britney's voice months prior to the album's release. Unless we come up with a plausible explanation, our accusation may be seen as a baseless conspiracy theory.

To conclude, if there was indeed some dubbing, proving all of Body Ache and most of Work B***hChillin' With You and Til It's Gone were also dubbed is going to be harder.

Note: In the booklet, Myah Marie's credited for singing background vocals on Work *****Tik Tik BoomTil It's GoneChillin' With You and Now That I Found You. On SoundBetter, Myah Marie confirms in her credits to have also done background vocals on Alien, It Should Be Easy and Body Ache. On her Spotify playlist Songs I've Been a Part of, Myah Marie confirms to have also done background vocals on Don't CryBrightest Morning Star and Hold on Tight.

is this really about suing Britney? :mhmnod: 

the nerve... :nochillbrit:

No... RCA. This is just how the lawyer phrased it. That said, if there were a trial, all parties involved would be made to testify and explain why did dubbing occur (if half the record was indeed dubbed) and why did they allow it to occur.

By the way, I love the Britney Jean album (Body Ache and Til It's Gone are such great songs, so are Perfume, Don't Cry and so on). It's just that the allegations persist so much that I'd like those responsible to be held accountable if half the record was actually dubbed.

For instance, there was no reason to remove Britney's voice from the hook of Alien. I am not however convinced those other songs were fully/almost fully dubbed, but a recording engineer I work with is adamant they are.

Plus the Michael Jackson thing is completely different, his fan sued his label, I’m sure his fan would never sue him. These ‘fans’ don’t realize they’re actually suing Britney too and tarnishing her brand, while complaining that the GP just sees her as a marketed puppet.
