“When we up in the club, all eyes on us,” Britney Spears croons in her recent single with will.i.am, ‘Scream & Shot.”

The thing about her line in the song, is that she does it in an British accent. But, t wasn’t recorded that way at first, though.

“The original demo was sang by Tulisa,” will.i.am said. “Things happened to where I was like, let’s get Britney on it. So Britney sung it regular and we came and listened to it again and she was like, ‘I kind of like it with the English accent. Want me to do that? I love doing that, I like playing characters.’ That was her idea actually.”

Spears’ British accent is nothing new to her fans, she speaks in one often when she’s near paparazzi.
