Rear squeak speeds up with speed of car

I have a squeak that appears to be coming from the back right tire. I've already replaced the wheel bearing.The noise tends to lighten up whenever the clutch is in or in neutral. When coming to a stop it becomes a longer squeak. It has to be something rotation because as I'm coming to a stop it goes in and out and you can hear it squeaking at a certain point.. It's getting very frustrating.

Brakes? Caliper? I would trying jack up the rear and spin the wheel by hand to try to find the source of the noise.

Wouldve guessed bearing but seeing you've already replaced it I would jack up the car and pull the wheel and see if maybe theres something going on in there. I had a weird noise one time in my car and pulled the wheel off to find a Whataburger wrapper stuck in some panels that was flapping on my wheels.

Thanks for the input, come to find out I used a national bearing from advanced and it went bad already. Replacing it today and hopefully it solves the issue!

For the bearings I would stick with OEM definitely.
