I don't think shes on the track either.
I'll believe it when either one of the two confirms it.

I think the first half of the second verse is Kelly now, the voice sounds like her and the backing vocals on that part also sound like Kelly.

And why would Slim Thug be saying "DC Destiny's Child" on a Bee track?

Cause it's on the DC Greatest hits. Why would it be called Beyonce - Check On It if there was also Kelly singing on it?

I think all Beyonce's songs are good. She has real nice voice. Check On It is doing great in charts too, but I still preferred Me, Myself And I and Naughty Girl, which were in lower places.

So that the record company could "support" Beyonce's spotlight ahead of her solo album (= more money).

If she really sings in the song, then she will complain about this. The song's #1 and she still hasn't said a thing.

She might not say anything because of this whole "we're like sisters, we love each other" thing. In fact, it may not be a bad thing at all that she's singing and is not credited. It could have been a prank the two of them did and said "hey, see if anyone notices", who knows. :lol:

I doubt Kelly would be bothered, she's getting paid regardless so why make a fuss. Plus the song is to promote Pink Panther, Beyonce's new film so they made it Beyonce ft. Slim Thug.

Whatever, no one knows for sure who's singing what but I think it sounds like Kelly.

It's actually Kelly that's singing the second verse

Why say it so matter-of-factly. You weren't in the studio with her were you? :roll:

It's just speculation...

Well it totally sounds like her and i'm judging the fact that it is her because it was really suppose to be a DC track. And Beyonce wanted more credibility for the Pink Panter. Check On It is crap. Stand Up 4 Love should of been the main single vocally because of Michelle and Kelly :roll: anyway I don't even really care.

I haven't actually listened to the song carefully enough to make a comment yet.

But regarding Kelly & Beyonce's vocals - I agree that they do have different tones to their voices, but on some tracks its really hard to separate them. Like on "Fancy" (from "Survivor" album) it took me ages to work out which bits were Kelly and which bits were Beyonce at first.

Here's a clip of the 2nd verse in acapella:

I think it sounds kind of nazal like Kellys voice but it does sound a bit like Beyonce.
I still think it's Kelly but the more I hear it the more it confuses me.

Meh, now I think it's Beyonce again :lol:

It's so layered, she must've sung like 4 words in each take :lol:

it doesn't matter who sings the song, the song sucks. But I'm kind of glad Swiss Beats got a #1 single with this Beyonce song...because he can't seem to produce a hit for his wife Mashonda.... :lol:

It's Beyonce, theres no way that its kelly that sings the "first half of the second verse" why would they give her a part that small and not even include michelle at all on the song? it's rubbish! A beyonce track, she is the only female vocalist on it,

wouldn't it cound under false adverdtising if they put Beyonce's name on the single cover, and it still had the other girls on it?
No way kelly sings on this!

Well sometimes it happens. Apparently they kept Ashanti's vocals on the chorus of JLo's remix single of "I'm Real", and they sounded really similar.

Christina sang the guide vocal for Play because she wrote it but didn't want it as a single once she recorded it. Ashanti sang the guide vocals for both the I'm Real and Ain't It Funny remixes as they were Murda Inc projects, so they just kept their vocals on the tracks as backing vocals.

Just listen to the songs and it's pretty obvious who sings what. Even when it's not Ashanti or Christina, J Lo usually has session singers doing most of the work :wink:
