Britney Spears and auto-tune go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Unfortunately for the 32-year-old pop sensation, the unedited vocal version of her song “Alien,” off her most recent album, Britney Jean, leaked, and, well, it gave us goose bumps — and not the good, Mariah Carey in her prime kind of goose bumps.

Hey, it’s hardly the first time an auto-tune-free track of Brit’s has made waves on the Internet. In 2011, she released an unedited version of her song “Hold It Against Me” — though you’ll be able to actually make it through this one without shuddering.

Brit, you’re still perfect to us.
