Britney Spears and will.i.am are back with a remixed version of their hit "Scream & Shout" ... featuring Hit Boy, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Wayne and Diddy!

While not nearly as catchy as the original, it doesn't lack for hip hop star power. Or Britney Spears and her British accent in a very short leather number.

Take a look below and see what you think ...

Yesterday, Eve courted controversy when she suggested that Britney does not actually appear on the song, a claim her camp vehemently denied.

Is that really Spears singing her part?

Yes, "Scream & Shout" is sung by an impostor, she insinuated.

Eve & Brit

"I heard it might not be Britney," Eve told Bravo's Andy Cohen when asked what she thought of the song. "That's what I heard, but you know, I don't know."

"It could be Britney. But I heard it wasn't."

Britney Spears' earnings edged Taylor Swift's to make her the top-earning woman in music over the past year by a whisker - and not strictly due to album sales.

Records, her X Factor gig, endorsements and a perfume line netted Britney Spears $58 million last year; Taylor was a close second with an estimated $57 million.

Britney Spears didn't choose will.i.am as her X Factor mentor by accident, people. Watch their just-released music video collaboration for "Scream and Shout" now!

"Walking to the stage now but I'll be back afterwards… cannot wait to hear what y'all think of the video!!!" the pop star-judge tweeted before the premiere.

The video actually isn't too crazy, though it does have a fun, futuristic kind of vibe to it ... and Britney Spears using an English accent for some reason.

She also brings back her "Britney, bitch" tagline, so that's good.

Kelly Clarkson delivered the ever-rare Britney Spears live cover last night in concert, belting out a rendition of the pop queen's "Till the World Ends."

The inaugural American Idol winner has been performing covers of other artists, a la Taylor Swift, during her Stronger tour, and Brit Brit was on tap.

"I thought this would be a fun one you'll enjoy," she told an L.A. crowd before singing. "I know you know this song ... I expect everybody on these 'Os!'"

Kelly did an awesome job, even if she has mixed feelings about the song.

According to TooFab, she said, "I love that song. I always get this bad taste in my mouth though ... when I hear Britney Spears because usually she's my cardio music and I frickin hate cardio! I frickin' hate the gym ... the gym can suck it!"

Indeed. Way to stick it to the treadmill!

It took 10 years, but Justin Timberlake finally (mostly) confirmed something we all assumed - that his hit "Cry Me a River" is about then-girlfriend Britney Spears.

The 2002 song has long been rumored to detail the breakdown of the couple’s romance and the video even featured a girl bearing a striking similarity to Spears.

Timberlake has always denied the claims, but in an episode of E!'s True Hollywood Story, his friend Timbaland confirms Britney Spears was the inspiration.

Justin himself concurred (while still not mentioning his ex by name) that a heated phone conversation between the young lovers prompted "Cry Me a River."

In the special, which was about Timbaland, the producer says, “He went to a concert and saw Britney, and Britney talked about him in the show and he was pissed.”

Justin then explains, “I was on a phone call that was not the most enjoyable phone call. I walked into the studio and he (Timbaland) could tell I was visibly angry.”

The singer, who was apparently cheated on by Spears, poured out his feelings in the song from his debut solo album Justified, and the emotion showed in his lyrics.

Timbaland says, “I was like, ‘Man, don’t worry about it’ and he's like, ‘I can’t believe she did that to me’ and he was like, ‘You were my sun, you were my earth.’”

JT and Brit, who just got engaged to Jessica Biel and Jason Trawick, respectively, in the last few months, split up that year, and are on friendly terms, but not close.
